SWEDISH WOOL

Each year at Filippa K, we produce a new edition of the Swedish Wool sweater: a signature style for the house that was born from our ongoing initiative which aims to ensure no local wool goes to waste.  


In 2018 we discovered that wool byproduct from the Swedish meat industry was being discarded. We then partnered with a local sheep farm, connecting them with our existing supplier network to create a fully traceable supply chain – turning this valuable organic resource into the first Filippa K Swedish Wool sweater.

The average wool sweater travels over 20,000km throughout its production process. By sourcing wool locally from Sweden, we were able to reduce our supply chain length and carbon impact by roughly 75%.*































*Calculated by Trustrace, based on the 2020 Max Sweater

Over the past four years we’ve scaled up the project to involve more bands and stakeholders – helping Swedish wool become more widely available in the industry – and have been awarded for the initiative.
