Patagonia Recycling Again: This Time, Cashmere

Remember when Patagonia introduced recycled down in their beyond-fab Bivy jackets and I was obsessed?

I’m—if possible—even more obsessed with their new recycled cashmere collection.

We took cashmere scraps, spun them with five percent virgin wool for strength, and created a luxurious new cashmere collection with a much lower ecological impact than virgin cashmere.

95% recycled cashmere/5% wool – I’ll take the $270 hoodie cardi, or the $199 crew pullover. Or maybe the $69 beanie is a better fit for my budget?

 

Related, I love the style of this recycled fabric Patagonia hoody, but it seems so much less soft (without feeling it) now that I know recycled cashmere is a thing! It’s 66% recycled acrylic/12% recycled nylon/11% recycled wool/6% recycled silk/5% other fiber

Speaking of brands I love, Pendleton is at it again this Christmas with a collab with The North Face. C’mon, stop making amazing things I want but don’t need!!
