Recycled wool

Recycled wool is manufactured from wool fiber that comes from a variety of wool leftover fabrics. This inherent resilience along with durability and high quality make wool a valuable raw material. Recycling is an ideal environmental option for wool leftover as a part of the natural atmospheric carbon cycle, the carbon in wool comes from plants consumed by grazing sheep, rather than petrochemicals.

To start with, the discarded fabrics are collected and divided up according to the composition, color and thickness of the wool. Once this first selection has been carried out, the garments are subjected to a shredding process that takes them back to the state of raw material. The fibre gives life to a new cycle of natural processing which includes spinning, weaving and finishing, the necessary steps needed to create a new fabric.

Each stage is characterized by the execution of specific tests aimed to verify compliance with the regulations covering the Ecoalf standards on quality.
