The Sherpa Adventure Men's Dumji Sweater - Maato Grey 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.
By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
Natural materials like wool are great sustainable options because they will biodegrade at the end of their lifecycle, however, we must still carefully consider the way in which the wool has been sourced and produced. The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) is the most widely established certification for the responsible production of wool, auditing the entire chain of custody from the farm through to the garment manufacturer. Note that not all responsibly sourced wool will be RWS certified.
