Is it ethical to buy a wool jacket?
It depends on how the wool was sourced. Some wool is sheared from sheep in such a way that is detrimental to the wellbeing of the animal, but all of the Merino wool and Shetland wool yarn we use is mulesing-free, which ensures shearing is done in the most sensitive way possible. Each TWOTHIRDS wool jacket is created with the blessing of some of the world’s happiest sheep.
How can I be certain my new jacket is sustainable?
All our clothes put the planet and ocean first. Our sustainable jackets are no exception. Each and every eco-friendly jacket design attempts to use the maximum amount of recycled materials, in order to reduce each garment’s environmental footprint. All the main eco-friendly selling points of each jacket can be found on their respective product pages, where they are highlighted by bullet points. For further information regarding the eco-credentials of our sustainable jackets, there are plenty of enlightening articles found at our blog.
Which layers should I pair with a light or medium-weight jacket?
As the planet warms, we are noticing increased demand for light and medium weight jackets. Such sustainable outer layers are great for when the weather can’t make up its mind what to do, but should always be part of well-layered outfits. There are plenty of tips out there on how great looks can incorporate a new jacket, but it’s hard to go wrong with men throwing a jacket over a sustainable t-shirt and sweatshirt combo. On colder days, why not mix in a high-neck knit and some organic corduroy trousers. Just make sure you have one of our more heavyweight sustainable jackets in reserve, just in case the cold really kicks in.
