Woolday No. 9
The Merino Wool Zip-Hoodie
Our Merino Zip-Hoodie is the first sweater made from a classic loopback of 100% finest merino wool. It's so versatile and comfortable that you can wear it to sports, the office, or an isolation layer or light jacket. The natural function of the merino wool makes this Zip-Hoodie an actual 'sweater', with perfect moisture management and natural temperature regulation.
Today, the hoodie is an essential part of our everyday wardrobe. But its history goes back to the 1920s when athletes and workers in the US started wearing hooded sweatshirts to stay warm. Back then, the Hoodie began its rise as an iconic garment for young subcultures, with significant influences on hip-hop, skateboarding, college culture, and digital businesses. Our WOOLDAY Hoodie continues this exciting story with the first loopback hoodie made from pure merino wool.
The Benefits of Merino Wool
We are convinced that real sustainability goes hand in hand with radical transparency. And that you have a right to know what it costs to make your clothes. So we can all make better decisions, and you can understand the value of your clothes.
Our margin covers salaries, new product development, sales and marketing expenses and investment in advanced and sustainable manufacturing processes.
We only price 2-3x the manufacturing cost, not 6-10x like most brands. So we guarantee you the best quality at the best price.
We overcome seasons and instead invest in a lasting collection of meticulously developed merino wool garments: Fewer and better pieces, free of excess, but full of passion. Our core motivation is to reduce our impact on the planet and improve people's lives. Clothing that looks great for years, and stands out without being showy.
