Meet the Regenerative Wool Farmers Helping to Fight Climate Change
It’s no longer enough to do less harm. That’s why we’re working with regenerative farmers who use grazing practices that help draw carbon from the atmosphere and restore the grasslands of Patagonia.
In 2018, we introduced Responsible Wool, a fiber that supports farmers who meet best practices for animal welfare and land management. Our Regenerative Wool goes one step further—it’s actually helping to restore soil health and biodiversity in Patagonia.
When managed holistically, sheep’s grazing aerates the soil and adds more nutrients back into it. This allows new life to grow—regenerating a vital ecosystem that helps to reduce greenhouse gases by absorbing excess carbon from the atmosphere.
When you buy regenerative wool, you’re supporting farmers who are working to make things better—better for sheep and better for the land. Together, we’re fighting climate change, one sweater at a time.
