Sustainability starts with chain transparency. The better we understand our chains, the more effectively we can implement changes that improve sustainability. This is essential, because animal fibres usually come wrapped in a cover of sustainability issues. Carbon footprint, methane, land and biodiversity, animal welfare, shearing management, chemicals, and working conditions: claims made can be hard to verify.

But it doesn’t have to be this way, and we’ll gladly show the alternative
The Knitwit Stable analyses all relevant sustainability issues in your supply chain, implements improvements and a strategy for sustainable change, and offers advice on how to clearly and credibly communicate about this transition.

We also help you find responsible sourcing and bring you in contact with existing suppliers or the right parties for sourcing new, sustainable producers in the supply chain.
