The Fibres We Use

As climate crisis threatens why burn the planet wearing cheap synthetics? When Natural fibres are heaven-sent sustainable? Think about it. Unlike polyester which is oil derived, devastatingly toxic and the bedrock of fast fashion, or rayon made from irreplaceable, mature trees in the Amazon rainforest, fibres harvested from cashmere or angora goats, yak or camel are an environmentalist’s dream. They biodegrade. They insulate. What’s good for a little goat or mighty yak at -40 degrees in winter, is catnip for us humans all year round. How lucky we are to be able to luxuriate in the stuff these animals shed when the heat of Summer arrives. And how their softness enriches our lives!
