Organic  Cashmere

💖So excited to have been researching for more sustainable cashmere options and to have found these barbds listed on this page!

💚 If we want to wear cashmere, why don’t we wear the best version of it?

🙅‍♀️To me, it doesn’t matter how fancy a cashmere brand name is or which celebrity or influencer is promoting it, if their practices are unacceptable, if they don’t respect the animals, the workers, or the environment.

🌎 It doesn’t matter how expensive they are and much they make us pay for their products that are the result of unacceptable working condition, animal abuse, and resource exploitation.💚We can all find better than that!

Here are my picks made with organic yarn, in a sustainable production process, eco-friendly packaging. 🍃

👏All this makes our cashmere pick a better, more environmentally friendly, sustainable, and rewarding choice!

 

Why Cashmere is an eco-friendly option?

In short, it’s nice to the earth, super soft, and lasts a really long time. As a natural fiber, cashmere is cozy but breathable, making it easy to rewear throughout the year. Plus, it’s wrinkle-resistant (see ya steamers), and is a sustainable option for the earth thanks to the responsible sourcing.

Cashmere keeps it au naturale, being 100% biodegradable.

In contrast, synthetic fibers take 70x longer to biodegrade, and release hundreds of thousands of micro-plastic fibers into the ocean each time they’re washed.

Not all the Cashmere is the same

If we choose to wear cashmere we need to find organic cashmere.

Many of you have asked me for a sustainable cashmere brand. 
Most cashmere on the market are made without respect for the enviroment, the animals that are giving us their precious wool and the workers that are taking care of the process.
Why keep buying toxic and unsustanable products from irresponsible and greedy cashmere manufacturers when we can find nicer, safer, and eco-friendly ones?

 
What does Organic Cashmere means?

🍃What organic cashmere means in reality is that no fertilizer or pesticides are used on the land where the goats graze, organic dyes are used to colour the yarn and specialised water treatments are used which are kinder to the environment.

The fantastic news is that alongside being more environmentally conscious,  organic garments are also fundamentally better by delivering a richer colour in the dyeing process whilst maintaining an incredibly soft handle. 

🌎 These brands strongly believe in the positive environmental impact of Organic production, and have already invested heavily in the transition. However, as well as sustainability, their core principle is to manufacture the best quality cashmere, and 100% Organic cashmere is no exception – the quality is discerningly the best. 

 

Organic cashmere:

  • organic dyes and detergents, free from fertilizer and pesticides,

  • Non allergenic and non toxic

  • Organic dyes and detergents

  • Biodegradable

  • Free from fertilizers and pesticides

  • Supporting 50% more wildlife and saving bees

  • Fully traceable from Goat to Garment

 

Ethical practices

Is when goats are traditionally herded to maintain their wild lifestyle, and just get an annual cashmere combing during their natural shedding cycle. This is the best sourcing practice, as shearing can leave the goats vulnerable to harsh weather (brr). 


✅Here are  my recommended  sustainable cashmere brands: the use 100% Organic Yarn,  some are powered entirely by renewable energy, and their are 100% traceable to its source.

They are super gentle with the animals, some of them carry even the most respected and officlai organic certification in a fabric:

GOTS organic certification that garanties  and superver that no pesticides, hebacides or pthe chemcal were used, that they follow strich rules such as water preservation, only organic dyes and respect for the eneveroment.

This material is soft and insulating, keeping you warm and comfortable in the winter. If properly preserved, cashmere will become even softer overtime, making it the perfect winter companion.

🌎 To help prevent environmental impacts from clothings, the best thing to do is to recycle ♻️ sell or donate your used garments, so that they do not end up in landfills.
