Why Natural Fiber Garments?
At Halifaks, we use pure natural fibre yarns in our unique knitwear. Our yarns that have developed over thousands of years are natural performance fabrics. Smart yarns that are breathable, built to last and offer incredible wicking properties are just the feet to push our knitwear to the highest level of comfort and reliability.
We are passionate about helping our customers switch to 100% sustainable, natural products, and we are passionate about how making small adjustments to their wardrobes will change how they feel in their clothes and how natural fibres benefit the environment.
Water-repellent and durable natural fibres are significantly safer than man-made ones and can be worn reliably, with their renewable and recyclable nature.
Unlike synthetic fibres, natural ones have an incredible hold and shine, allowing the dyes to be glossy and dark without looking artificial, and the surface textures are incredibly warm and comfortable.
Our yarns are sourced from the world's best spinners with decades of knowledge and skill, guaranteeing the foundation of luxury and heritage in our natural fibre knitwear.
Although there is more investment, in the beginning, natural fibres have a range of qualities that guarantee the life of your sweater with minimal washing required, easily repaired and rejuvenated fibres, and organic 'rebound' properties that mean your sweater will retain its shape and shape and feel longer.
For thousands of years, sheep have evolved to withstand the harshest conditions. Sheep wool protects them from wind, rain and sun. Wool reacts to temperature, so it has the ability to keep you warm and at the same time retain moisture, thus keeping you cool by removing heat and sweat from your body.
Wool is a living natural fibre, which means it contains deodorizing bacteria unlike polyester that attracts bad bacteria, so your gym kit will smell if not washed quickly.
We love our wool sweaters as they provide the ultimate in insulation from the elements, especially when folded over our finely sized knits.
Knitted cotton is a soft, skin-friendly, breathable fibre. In summer, cotton is ideal because it absorbs moisture and removes heat from the body. We do not recommend cotton for high-intensity workouts as it can absorb up to 10 times its weight in water, but it is ideal for daily use.
Cotton is strong and durable, making it perfect for machine washing and the fibres will not get pilling. Cotton garments also resist stains and resist odours better than synthetic fibres.
We love to compliment our look with the unique cover that our cotton knitwear has.
Unlike artificial clothing, garments made with natural fibres do not shed microbeads of non-biodegradable materials when washed. Natural fibres are environmentally friendly.
