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?

Unfortunately, many of the plastics we touch in our daily life are used only once and thrown away.
