At Röyk, we have a profound love for wool, whether it’s Swedish or Norwegian wool, or German or Australian merino wool. The Responsible Wool icon shows that the product is made from RWS-certified wool. RWS stands for Responsible Wool Standard, which is a certification program that ensures wool comes from farms with a progressive approach to managing their land, sheep, and wool. Farms certified under RWS must meet strict animal welfare standards and implement best practices in environmental sustainability.
The RWS certification guarantees that the wool comes from sheep that have been treated with care and respect. This means that the animals are not subjected to mulesing, a painful and inhumane procedure that involves cutting away strips of skin from the sheep's hindquarters to prevent flystrike. The RWS also ensures that the sheep are not subjected to unnecessary harm, and that they have access to clean water, food, and shelter. In addition to the animal welfare benefits, RWS wool is also produced in an environmentally responsible way. Farms must implement practices that promote biodiversity, conserve water, and reduce the use of harmful chemicals. This means that RWS wool is a great choice for those who want to minimize their impact on the planet.
Choosing RWS wool means supporting farmers who are committed to responsible and sustainable practices, and ensuring that the wool you purchase is of the highest quality and ethical standards.

Recyclable fabrics are an important part of a sustainable fashion industry. By using materials that can be recycled at the end of their useful life, we can reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and conserve natural resources. Recyclable fabrics also help to reduce the carbon footprint of the fashion industry by decreasing the need for virgin materials, which require energy and resources to extract and process.
In addition to their environmental benefits, recyclable fabrics can be just as high quality and durable as traditional materials. Many recyclable fabrics are made from natural fibers, such as cotton or wool, which are biodegradable and can be safely returned to the earth. Other recyclable fabrics are made from synthetic fibers, such as polyester or nylon, which can be recycled into new materials through specialized processes.
Overall, using recyclable fabrics is a smart choice for anyone who wants to minimize their impact on the planet. By choosing materials that can be recycled, we can reduce waste, conserve resources, and create a more sustainable fashion industry.
