At Aviator, we source our merino wool from New Zealand because they maintain strict laws protecting their sheep and have banned the cruel practice of mulesing. New Zealand Merino's are treated ethically and are carefully sheered each spring.
Merino Wool is the Most Sustainable Fiber
Wool is a natural and renewable resource. As long as there is grass to eat, sheep will continue to produce it. When disposed of, wool naturally decomposes into the soil and slowly releases valuable nutrients back into the earth.
