A common misconception with recycled materials is that it is inferior to virgin material. Even though the fibers lengths are shorter, we always use materials that are mixed in with virgin fibers to ensure that the quality and longevity is never compromised. The recycled wool we use comes from GRS-certified yarn mills. The GRS-certificate (Global Recycle Standard) proves that the stated content of recycled materials is genuine and also ensures that the supplier is fulfilling other important environmental and social criteria. When making the actual recycled fiber, used garments and rags are collected, then sorted by color and shredded into fibers for spinning. By re-using these already produced wool garments, the manufacturing process uses less chemicals, dyeing agents and water.
