Our Wool

Our wool fleece apparel is made from Shaniko wool which is both Nativa™ Regen and RWS certified.

Shaniko and Nativa™ Regen merino wool fiber is also used by other luxury brands such as Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren.

Our wool is processed, knit and sewn on the East Coast of the United States. Wool is the original and superior performance fiber. Here are some of its most redeeming qualities:

  • Sheep are part of the natural carbon cycle and when managed by ranchers that use regenerative practices, misplaced carbon is sequestered in the soil (fighting climate change)
  • Naturally flame retardant
  • Biodegradable - we design garments to be fully biodegradable and compostable, not just the individual materials
  • Recyclable - wool is currently the easiest material to recycle, which is done manually vs. chemically
  • Does not hold odor and requires very little washing
  • Resists wrinkling
  • Wool is thermoregulating - it keeps you warm and provides a cooling effect which prevents overheating during high intensity exercise or unexpected warm weather

Here are some fact sheets with “receipts” from the International Wool Textile Organization if you are interested.


The NATIVA™ Regenerative Agriculture program is an integrated system
based on scientific data, which will:
• Improve soil matter and soil microbiology
• Enhance nutrient cycles
• Foster greater biodiversity on-farm
• Improve pastures for animals
• Introduce a more responsible management of water
• Reduce CO2 emissions related to farming


Shaniko Wool Company was founded in 2018 by Jeanne Carver, to scale the supply of Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certified wool produced in the United States. Shaniko Wool aligned with the Chargeurs Group brand standard, and is proud to be dual certified to RWS / NATIVA™ Regen.

Shaniko Wool is rancher owned and operated. Shaniko Wool ranchers receive a premium for their certified wool, supporting their families, farms and local communities.

Working with a team of range scientists from Oregon State University, a comprehensive research and measurement effort was launched in 2020 called – Shaniko Wool Carbon Initiative.
