Produced with a combination of recycled plastic bottles and upcycled oyster shells, Seawool is an incredible, cozy step forward for sustainable textiles. It shares many of the same qualities we love about a classic merino wool sweater—soft to the touch, temperature regulating, quick drying, antimicrobial, durable—while rescuing a great deal of waste from ending up in landfills and oceans. We love the serendipity of an old-school knit sweater that’s made with upcycled oyster shells, with all the cozy warmth and rugged durability we would expect built right in.
Seawool is a yarn created from pulverized oyster shells and recycled plastic bottles. Wondering why you aren’t seeing “Seawool” below? Our House Brands team informed us that due to customs reasons, we have to declare Seawool as recycled polyester because even with pulverized oyster shell content, it is recycled polyester in its final fiber form.
