Why mulesing-free merino wool is more sustainable?

Why mulesing-free merino wool is more sustainable?

2 min read

Wool outperforms any other fabrics when it comes to moisture-wicking, warmth and odor-fighting capabilities. Merino wool is known for its quality, softness and ability to regulate body temperature even during high-intensity activity. Wool fibers have scales that are removed to make the fiber soft and comfortable using a unique process that is chlorine-free. Weekendbee offers only 100 % mulesing-free merino wool products

Merino is naturally anti-bacterial and it doesn’t stink like synthetic fibers, so you don’t have to wash the shirt so often – drying and airing it out is usually enough. 

So why should we pay attention that our favorite merino wool sportswear is mulesing-free?

The clothing and textile manufacturing industry have an intense environmental impact. Our clothes are usually originally from fields, sheep´s back or oil well and the process of turning the raw material from fiber to fabric uses huge amounts of water, chemicals, labor, and other processing resources.

No clothing brand is 100% sustainable but we at Weekendbee want to offer you the best possible solutions.

Black Friday shopping campaigns have grown from one day event into a full-week shopping hysteria. On the eve of Black Friday (and Christmas shopping), we have a good time to reflect on our shopping habits. 

Do you buy the necessities? Do you repair, recycle or swap clothes with friends? Most sustainable is to leave all unnecessary purchases into the store, this also saves your time and money to spend more time in the outdoors!

Weekendbee loves outdoor life! Read here our team's and Tesbees' outdoor greetings. Share your moments also with us using #happyoutside hashtag.
