Fibres naturels:

Merino wool forms the basis of Icebreaker clothing and today the company’s business reflects their commitment to natural fiber solutions. Good to know: 95% of their global fabric consumption is natural or plant fibers and only 5% of all fibers used come from petrochemical synthetic fibers. Icebreaker also uses plant-based fibers, such as organic cotton and linen and plant-based TENCEL Lyocell. Mixed with their heroic fiber, merino, they make beautiful, versatile and high-performance fabrics.

For Icebreaker, the key to the future of our planet is not only to preserve nature, but also to rebuild it. This is why the company works with its producers to conserve and rehabilitate our ecosystems.
