Our mission is to leave as few imprints on the planet as possible, which is why we only use 100% natural materials. We carefully follow all steps our products go through and look for the most climate smart way in our own OEKO-TEX certified company.
We know what good quality should look like. Many aspects need to be taken into consideration such as thickness, length and whiteness of the fiber. Often, you have to blend different types of wool to reach the perfect result. To master this, it takes knowledge and persistence, something that we have acquired during our 140 years in business.
A group of farmers in Bank Peninsula, New Zealand, decided to address the difficulties of Eco sheep breeding. They have developed a process where they only treat the sheep with pesticide once, instead of repeatedly as had been practiced before. They give this treatment when the sheep is newborn which leads to no or negligible amounts of pesticides in the finished wool as it grows. Additionally no chemicals are allowed to be used in the crops or in the food that the sheep eats and no antibiotic is used during the breading process. A special washing method for the wool has been developed to again save the environment as much as possible. Finally, as a control over the entire process, an independent an accredited laboratory test approves each consignment of wool. Bank Peninsula “ECO WOOL” is especially suitable for blankets and throws and KLIPPAN is exclusive in the market in using this material. Items with Eco Wool are specially labeled. KLIPPAN also decided to make all of the children’s blankets in “ECO WOOL”.
