We only use wool from Merino sheep bred on farms in South Africa that do not practise mulesing.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators.
A score from A to E is provided in order to easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks).
Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental properties of its products.
We've tested the material in a climate-controlled room in order to determine its performance level. The results have proved the thermo-regulating properties of the wool. After exercise and heavy sweating, the wool is able to maintain body temperature while a synthetic material lowers the temperature again more quickly. The merino wool therefore reduces the unpleasant chilling or “freezing" effect.
