Icebreaker has created clothing made of natural fibres that performs well as an alternative to clothes made from petrochemical synthetics. This approach was inspired by nature. A renewable material called merino has a built-in odor-resistance. This allows your skin to breathe for all-day comfort, keeping you warm in cold conditions and cool when it's hot.

The Icebreaker Women's 260 Zone Long Sleeve Half Zip - Jet Heather Black has the following sustainability attributes...
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
