From new brand Artilect, this t-shirt takes the natural benefits of merino wool, and supercharges it with cooling Tencel, making it the perfect baselayer for summer adventures. But this isn't your typical merino/Tencel blend - Artilect's exclusive blend is drafted over high-performance nylon to provide a fabric fit and profile that works hard at keeping you cool whilst you work hard to reach the summit.

We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it.

The Artilect Women's Utilitee Short Sleeve T-Shirt - Dusk Blue 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.
Merino wool is a high-performing natural fibre that will biodegrade at the end of its lifecycle, however, sheep can often be subjected to inhumane practices like mulesing if unmonitored. ZQ is the most widely established merino wool certification standard, and follows five principles: the best animal welfare, environmental integrity, social responsibility, fibre quality and traceability standards. Sheep must graze free range, be given their Five Freedoms (freedom from hunger and thirst; from discomfort; from pain, injury or disease; to express normal behaviour; and from fear and distress) and are not subject to mulesing. Note that not all responsibly sourced merino will be ZQ certified.

You may have heard of TENCEL, lyocell, REFIBRA and Lenzing thrown about all together, but what does it all mean?
Lenzing is the parent group who use wood from sustainable, renewable forests to produce ‘viscose’ fibre. Lenzing produces four types of fabric: LENZING, TENCEL, VEOCEL and ECOVERO. The difference is their application and use: LENZING is used more in workwear and packaging, TENCEL is used for predominantly for activewear, underwear and footwear, VEOCEL for face, cleaning and baby wipes, and ECOVERO for even more sustainable fabrics for fashion.
TENCEL is the most common Lenzing fabric you’ll see used in the outdoor industry. TENCEL is a brand name for lyocell fabric. REFIBRA technology takes cotton scraps from used clothes and factory floors and mixes it with TENCEL to give second life to waste. The production of TENCEL is a closed loop process - while it uses chemicals, 99% is recycled and continually used.
