our approach is simple: use the best materials nature has to give, and let nature speak for itself.
our materials are backed by domestic and global standards for purity, environmental impact and manufacturing integrity.
our sourcing invests in equitable land ownership, co-op family farms, carbon positive farming, and US organic and sustainable textiles.
this is not a trend for us: this is who we are and want for ourselves, and are fortunate that we can also provide it to others.

Our merino and jersey wools come from US merino sheep that are raised in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States. The wool is shorn without harming the sheep, who graze and live freely on acres upon acres of natural land. Our wool is some of the best quality for fineness, color and length.
Our wool partner is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact and is NATIVA™ carbon positive. Our wool is of upmost quality, but also of high sustainability, human rights, animal welfare standards.
Wool naturally biodegrades at the end of its lifecycle.
Our wool does not itch, but is rather soft and luxurious to the touch. Our wool also has a generous stretch given the knitting technique used.
Our wool is 100% hypoallergenic.

We use some fabrics that are a blend of fair trade hemp and organic cotton. By fair trade, we certify that the textile is also free trade; wages and hours are reasonable, and working conditions are safe and comfortable. Our partners are also part of the Fair Wear Foundation.
When hemp and organic cotton are blended, the comfort of the textile becomes far greater than if just using hemp alone. At the same time, organic cotton also becomes much more durable when blended with hemp. We like this combination because it adds a unique texture to the finished product that is comforting, soft, flexible and better with age.
We believe silk should be used not just for delicate adornment, but also functionality. Our silk is intended to be used for every occasion, from hiking to dining. Our silk is washable, durable and better with age.

Silk is naturally biodegradable, and a renewable resource. It also uses less water, chemicals, and energy than many other fibers.
