RECYCLED WOOL, MADE IN ITALY
One of our bestselling flagship products, Sarner, isn’t just 100% made in Italy – its wool is also 100% recycled. Our partner in Prato, Italy, sorts discarded woollen goods, mechanically processes the wool, and transforms it into regenerated wool yarn.
The wool holds the Global Recycled Standard and Cardato Recycled certifications, which guarantee recycled content. These certifications also guarantee the highest standards of respect for the environment – specifically water, energy consumption and CO2 emissions – and social impact.
Our supplier transforms the recycled wool yarn into high quality woollen fabrics. Together we developed these fabrics for our SALEWA Sarner jacket. Thanks to the success of the product, we’re introducing several new styles that feature recycled wool in upcoming Salewa collections.
The rejected woolen sweaters are sorted according to composition and colour.
The sweaters are unravelled to recreate the wool fibres.
The fibres are cleaned of impurities.
The fibres are spun to obtain a new homogeneous and resistant yarn.
The yarn is woven.
The wool fabric is bonded with one in jersey to line the inside of the jacket.
The bonded fabric is washed in a factory with the highest quality and environmental management standards.
The fabric is sewn to create the jacket.
Finishing and Packaging
The jacket undergoes quality inspection and is shipped to Salewa.
