Fair insulation

Fair insulation

More than 400,000 mountain sheep live in the harsh mountainous landscape of the Swiss Alps. Each year, they provide approximately 1000 metric tons of fair-trade wool, collected directly from the Swisswool suppliers. The climate control properties and elasticity of Swisswool makes it very suitable for insulation and can for instance be seen in the new technical Ortovox Zebru Jacket, presented at ISPO Munich 2018.
