Wool is biodegradable, breathable, highly versatile, and is typically made from the fleece of sheep. It is considered to be one of the most sustainable fabrics. Wool has antibacterial properties so it does not require frequent washing. It is naturally water repellent, fire-resistant, and long-lasting.
All wool used in PÆTRIA_design collections is certified cruelty-free and was manufactured under the highest standards of GOTS and/or The Woolmark Company, and we also ensure that all our wools are certified mulesing-free. Our signature handmade knitwear collection “Evig” is entirely made of pure wool produced by the Icelandic Istex, which is today 80% proudly farmer-owned and holds the world`s highest animal welfare and quality standards, as well as assuring working conditions that comply with the strict Icelandic laws.
