Merino Wool from selected farms with sustainable and particularly environmentally friendly operations
Wool ensures a healthy microclimate for the skin, which prevents bacteria, so that woollen garments smell less and often only need to be aired instead of washed.
84% of Devold’s material is wool, and they only use a few synthetic materials to increase the durability of the garments. Every one of their farmers must abide by the Five Freedoms for Animal Welfare and none of the sheep may be subjected to mulesing. Their manufacturing process complies to EU Reach and STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® standards, so clients can be sure there’s no harmful chemicals in Devold’s garments. Devold reports about their usage of packaging materials and their recyclability to the GrøntPunkt Norge and they report to World Economic Forum about their supporting of environmental NGOs.
Devold shares the origin of the materials, design and manufacturing openly. They produce 94% of their products in their own factory in Lithuania, and the wool comes from their partner farms in Argentina, New Zealand and Norway. Devold is audited by third party according to STeP requirements and this applies to all their suppliers.
Devold reports their climate footprint on Scope 1 and 2 to the World Economic Forum.
