Recycled Cashmere

We use recycled cashmere (blended with 5% recycled wool) because of its soft, lightweight warmth.

Cómo

In the 1960s and '70s, cashmere was used as a luxury material for overcoats, suits and sweaters. As people became familiar with its soft, warm feel, demand for the material grew.

Today, cashmere is widely used throughout the industry as a commodity fiber, which is leading to the overbreeding of cashmere goats, a decrease in fiber quality and the desertification of the Mongolian region where the vast majority of cashmere goats live.

Patagonia uses high-quality recycled cashmere to buck this trend and reduce the environmental cost.

Dónde Estamos

We started using recycled cashmere in 2017 after reviewing our supply chain and noticing an increase in the overgrazing of cashmere goats in Mongolia.

Today, we collect pre-consumer scraps from European factories and send them to a sorting facility where they are meticulously sorted by color and then put in large machines that shred the fiber. We blend those fibers with 5% recycled wool to create a strong, undyed yarn that we use to make sweaters, beanies, scarves and gloves.

Qué Sigue

Innovations like a mechanical recycling program for cashmere and wool textile waste are helping us scale up the production of recycled cashmere. In coming seasons, we hope to incorporate it into more of our products.
