Our oceans are littered with billions of particles of plastic. Though our clothes aren not usually thrown away as casually as plastic bottles or carrier bags, they’re just as harmful to the environment. We barely give a moment’s thought to our clothes breaking down because we can’t see the process with the naked eye.
If we choose clothes made from natural materials, i.e. those that break down once the garment reaches the end of its life, those that barely need any washing and don’t release microplastics into the environment, then we’re looking after more than just ourselves.
Wool is nature’s own little miracle. One-hundred per cent natural and one-hundred per cent degradable. Wool’s natural properties are the result of thousands of years of development and cannot be recreated in a laboratory.
If you choose Devold wool, you’ll know where your garments come from and where they’re produced. Check the label on your garment to find out more about our farmers and the exact location where the wool used to make your garment comes from.
The select few farms that Devold works with must comply with very strict quality control requirements. Every one of our farmers must abide by the Five Freedoms for Animal Welfare and none of the sheep may be subjected to mulesing. Our garments are manufactured at our own Oeko-Tex-certified factory in Lithuania.
We work tirelessly on going the extra mile to create the most environmentally friendly production process possible: we seek to manufacture garments that are not only good to wear outdoors but also gentle on nature.
Wool is nature’s own little miracle. 100% natural and 100 % degradable.
Wool’s natural properties are the result of thousands of years of evolution and can’t be reproduced in a laboratory.
One of wool’s special properties is that it’s temperature-dependent, meaning it keeps you warm in cold weather and has a cooling effect in warm weather.
