Sustainable yarns

Our sustainable yarns have a transparent supply chain and are based on clear production processes. They are designed and produced to customer specifications.

Our raw materials

We live sustainability in various ways.

On the one hand, for us this means using raw materials that are of natural origin or that are available over short distances. On the other hand, recycled materials are state of the art for us. We carefully select the fibers and chemicals according to your wishes in order to create a product that not only meets our sustainability requirements, but also yours!

Use of natural raw materials

Animal and vegetable fibers are naturally occurring raw materials. These include wool, silk, flax and hemp. We use plant fibers in blends to obtain a yarn that meets high standards. We are very flexible when it comes to wool. We can process sheep, alpaca or other animal hair on our long staple spinning machines. Do you have special requirements such as mulesing-free or washability or do you value controlled organic animal husbandry? These wools are standard for us.

Use of biodegradable raw materials

On customer request, we manufacture our yarns with biodegradable materials. These can be naturally occurring fibers or chemically produced, biodegradable raw materials.

Use of man-made fibers from natural raw materials

Based on wood or corn, there is now a wide variety of textile fibers. Many raw materials are now also produced more sustainably by saving water or chemicals. This is why we also rely on fibers made from PLA, viscose or lyocell, among others.

Use of recycled materials

In the field of thermoplastic fibers, the recycling of plastics, from which fibers are then spun, has proven successful. These raw materials are primarily recycled polyester types. These materials can be obtained both from used drinks bottles and from plastic waste.

70% of the raw materials used are wool.

Avoid and reduce CO2e emissions

The CO2e footprint for each yarn is made up of very different components. The raw materials themselves play a significant role. Natural raw materials can also cause relatively high emissions at the beginning of the chain, but can be biodegradable at the end - without emitting additional CO2e.

It is important to precisely analyze the individual CO2e footprint of each product in order to clearly define the framework conditions. The "cradle-to-customer plus waste" approach is followed here. This includes all steps: how high are the CO2e emissions during the extraction of raw materials, packaging, relevant logistics processes, the manufacture of the product, the delivery of the goods to the customer's factory gate and the disposal emissions of the product and its packaging.

CO2e-footprint and financial contribution to climate protection

On request, we can balance the entire value chain from the procurement of raw materials through our own production steps until delivery to the customer. The various emission sources of our yarns are precisely analyzed and balanced. Calculating the CO2e footprint of your product takes around three to four weeks and takes place in parallel with the production process.

In cooperation with ClimatePartner, we can offset the remaining emissions on request by financing a climate protection project. Climate protection projects save CO2e emissions - for example with reforestation measures or by replacing climate-damaging technologies with climate-friendly alternatives.
By labeling them with the independent "financial climate contribution" label from ClimatePartner, we enable our customers to track this financing and find out more about the climate protection project. In this way, we ensure the greatest possible transparency.
