Did you know, it takes 4 goats to produce enough fiber to make one, just one, cashmere sweater! In addition, the global demand for cashmere is destroying the grasslands in Mongolia. In the past, Mongolia's grasslands have been ideal for raising goats. However, now with the demand, the increase in goats which in turn means they are eating more grass, well, you get it. This is why cashmere in the past had been labeled as a luxury fabric but today you can find casual cashmere more affordable.
Moving to Re.Verso, a regenerated cashmere fiber made in Italy, will result in a 92% less impact on the environment. The fiber is actually made from post-factory waste and will take the Stella McCartney brand from a 25% environmental impact to as low as 2%!!
