One of the principles of regenerative agriculture is to integrate livestock. Sheep can be key to good soil health, and good soil health and diversity is key to animal welfare. We offer regenerative wool, which is RWS certified and fully traceable, in collaboration with Woolmark and our Portuguese partners.
By supporting the natural functions of the environment, regenerative agriculture is a holistic farming approach that focuses on developing the biology and fertility of soils as the basis of the entire farm ecosystem.
Regenerative agriculture works to support soil systems, increase biodiversity, improve water cycles, support bio-sequestration, increase resilience to climate fluctuation and strengthen soil health and vitality.
Including animals in farming systems can reduce the need for fertilizers, and implementing rotational grazing techniques ensures that grass is trimmed regularly, allowing it to regrow, store more carbon in its roots and support biodiversity in and above the soil.
We need to work together to increase the use of natural fibres. Wool is 100% natural, 100% biodegradable and 100% renewable as sheep produce a new fleece every year. The fibre is wrinkle resistant, as each Merino wool fibre at a microscopic level is like a coiled spring that returns to its natural shape after being bent. This also gives wool garments a natural elasticity, creating wearing comfort. Wool is naturally breathable; it is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature and will warm/cool the body. Other benefits of using Merino wool is that the fibre has a natural protective outer layer, which creates stain repellency, as well as a natural anti-microbial function that makes it easy to care for, as it will need less washing.
With the present level of innovation in fibre production, Merino wool yarns are produced with high quality, making wool an excellent choice to create softness on the skin, and we can create unique textures and finishes. Wool has a natural UV resistant function, it is fire resistant and is simultaneously the most reused and recycled fiber.
Even though wool is only 1.2% of the global virgin fibre supply, it represents 5% of clothing donated to charity and is one of the most sought after textiles for recycling.
As per March 2023, Win-Win Textiles offers product development and production in generative wool, and we also offer recycled wool for fabrics and filling in quilted garments.
