We made a promise.

In 2020, we made the commitment to achieve 100% sustainably-made products by 2022. In 2019, 73% of our assortment was sustainably-made. 


Our progress is already tangible: Today, 96% of our assortment is sustainably made. We are on track to achieve our goal of 100% by next year.

Single-Origin Cashmere

Recycled Cashmere


Our recycled cashmere is made at a family-owned mill that has been in business for over 130 years. Crafted using a composition of at least 95% recycled cashmere, and virgin wool, this material is spun from 100% Post consumer Cashmere. Each sweater is crafted by recycling existing sweaters and breaking them down to countless fibers, which are then washed, treated, and spun into new, high-quality yarns.

Wool Cashmere


Our wool and cashmere are spun together in Italy to create this cozy fabric that perfectly marries the heft of wool, the softness of cashmere, and the warmth of both fibers. Our wool is sourced from farms with a holistic respect for the welfare of the sheep and the land they graze on.
