Why Organic Wool?

Why use organic wool?

Northern Playground's organic collection of base layers uses only organic wool. But what's the big deal? Why is organic wool better?

  • Use of pesticides is restricted
  • Plant, insect and bird life are 50% more abundant on organic farms
  • Sheep graze and forage naturally across more expansive space
  • Sheep eat a diet free from genetically modified organisms
  • Synthetic hormones and genetic engineering is prohibited
  • Water and soil contamination is greatly reduced
  • Factory workers enjoy improved social conditions (incl. better wages)
  • End garments are free from toxic, allergenic and carcinogenic chemicals
  • All this keeps your ass warm and toxin-free :)
