Warm, cozy and lightweight women’s insulation garment. The all natural merino wool and Tencel® blend is a perfect alternative to synthetic fleece.
Let nature keep you warm. Alto Halfzip is made in a fabric called Woolly Treemerino™, a Swedish made warm, stretchy and lightweight fabric in merino wool and Tencel® Lyocell. Tencel® is a fiber made from cellulose that gives the fabric structure and better moisture transmission. Merino wool provides warmth and is naturally odor resistant. Together they make up a garment that is both highly functional and completely biodegradable.
Creating performance mid-layers has always been a special focus at Houdini. This all-natural wool fleece will keep you warm on any adventure. Layer it under your shell jacket for skiing, wear it on it’s own for an autumn hike or let it keep you warm after a chilly surf session. And don’t be fooled by the fuzzy appearance. Alto Halfzip is a technical all natural fleece jacket that will perform in tough conditions.
Please don’t throw away this garment when it’s worn out. Alto Halfzip is made from renewable and biodegradable fibers. The raw materials are valuable and can be used again through recycling or composting. Bring it back to a Houdini shop or one of our retailers that has a Houdini recycling unit.
FABRICS AND TECHNOLOGY
Main Fabric: Woolly Tree
Merino Warm, fluffy and soft merino wool fleece made only with natural fibers.
Wool is a fantastic material with natural bacterial and dirt resistance. Therefore, wool does not need to be washed after every use. Frequent washing has a negative effect on the wool's properties and unnecessarily wears down the garment. Instead, air your wool garments to reduce your water usage, save energy and make your garments last longer.
This product is fully circular, meaning that it's made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The fabric in this product is fully biodegradable. Thanks to that fact that we never mix our natural fibers with synthetics and don't use harmful chemicals, you can put the fabric in a compost and nature will transform the fabric into fertile soil. Trimmings like care labels, zippers, seams etc have to be removed and can often be recycled separately. If you don't have your own compost, you can return the worn out garment to us. We have recycling units in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The fibers in this garment comes from 100% renewable sources like wool or cellulose. We only use natural fibers that are produced in environmentally and ethically responsible sources. We use both natural and synthetic fibers, they both have their merits, but we never mix them to ensure a circular product. This means that the fabrics from all our products in natural fibers are fully biodegradable.
The fabric in this garment is fully recyclable. Instead of becoming waste, the raw material can be used for new products. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.
