Varusteleka.com FACEBOOK Fleece, microplastics and other stuff Microplastics are a motherfucker. It’s a serious problem, and we want to both do something and educate people about it. Microplastics are a type of pollution that has only recently been understood to exist. We still don’t know all about it, and while it does not seem to affect humans, it does seem to cause harm to small life forms. JFGI for more. A report by Finnish Environment Institute tells us that the main ways a consumer produces microplastics is driving a car and washing synthetic fibres. 100% polyester clothing seems to shed most microplastics, ie. soft shell jackets, moisture wicking underwear and fleece. The things you can do is a) don’t use the car so much, b) don’t wash synthetic fibres or c) if you do, use a washing bag to capture microplastics or install a filter in your washing machine. We’re furiously trying to get the bags into our selection. If you live in the US of A, you’re in luck, because they actually sell washing machine filters in your country. Not washing your synthetics is actually a thing worth thinking about. People today wash their clothing mostly because of habit and do not really think whether or not it’s actually necessary. While next to skin polyester or polyamide will start to stink, an outer layer fleece or soft shell jacket might never need washing in it’s lifespan. Dirt comes off if you brush it, and if sensory evaluation does not find reasons for washing, there are no reasons. We’ve been pushing alternatives to synthetic fibres for a long time, even before becoming aware of the microplastics problem, because wool just works that much better in every way. So, replace your underwear with wool. It also works as outer layer, and we’re working to get more options for that department. For cheaper option that works well in hot environments, we already have some viscose stuff, and will more will come. What we are doing now is getting rid of fleece. Fleece is a wonderful material - packs light, doesn’t mind about water, it’s cheap and warm. The downsides are flammability and microplastics shedding. The nice thing about the situation is that fleece is replaceable - we already have options available to replace most of our fleece. The only thing missing is a cheap alternative to our Särmä Fleece jacket - Särmä merino hoodie is superior in all ways, but it also costs almost twice as much. The replacement project is still very much in prototype stage, but the current version has the same cut as Särmä fleece jacket (the one with the hood) and has 548g/m2 interlock knit, of 28,3% wool, 35% cotton and 36,7% polyester. The idea is that this is cheaper and more durable than full wool, but most likely doesn’t ever need washing as an outer layer.
