In order to work in a traceably sustainable manner, we offer a variety of certified yarns with different focuses and levels of sophistication. Irrespective of these requirements, we always pay attention to environmentally friendly and resource-saving production.

Our sustainability toolbox

The sustainability toolbox offers the possibility to define products according to target group requirements

and to identify suitable products from the Schoeller range.




Different levels of traceability, from self-declaration to certification, Nativa (QR code based), Tracking certificate (GOTS)


We have a large repertoire of sustainable dyes, such as Gots-certified dyes, IVN-Best certification, Bluesign-certified dyes, but we also have colored, undyed materials in our range.


Natural renewable materials or bio-based man made fibers have a multitude of advantages and are  mostly naturally degradable such as our merino qualities.


Naturally degradable is an important function. It reduces the negative footprint. Even if disposed of incorrectly, environmental damage could be usually avoided in the medium term.


Made out of recycled PES or PA post- or pre- consumer recycles materials or recycled wool


Particularly durable materials are an important part of a sustainable strategy, repairability.

Rethinking sustainability



Recycled, degradable and recyclable




Biophilic polyester:
The polyester fiber is made from recycled polyester to conserve resources. It is degradable under a wide range of environmental conditions, which largely prevents the formation of microplastics. The polyester is also recyclable.
The polyester fiber, as part of the high-quality Sustainno blend, improves a number of technical properties such as abrasion resistance and bursting stability, which sustainably increases the durability and wear properties of the wool.

Merino Performance:
Merino wool ensures perfect heat regulation and natural moisture management. It is inherently one of the most sustainable fibers of all. It degrades naturally after disposal. Under certain circumstances, wool can even be used for soil improvement and fertilization

From waste to yarn

Polycolon® Bio Based - from waste to yarn


"Polycolon® bio based" has the same outstanding functional properties as the well-known high-performance fiber Polycolon. The forward-looking, sustainable innovation relates to the raw material used in fiber production. It is obtained from organic waste and not from fossil fuels. During production, gas from recycled and organic waste is converted. This greenhouse gas is captured and used to produce the polypropylene.

Colors without dyes and chemicals

Loden Nature undyed

Natural wool colors

After an elaborate selection process, naturally occurring shades are remixed to create a range of natural colors.
No dyes, chemicals or water are used for these colors.

EXP - chlorine-free treated wool




The patented state of the art for chlorine-free wool finishing, certified to the strict GOTS standard



EXP - chlorine-free treated wool

Wool has long been an integral part of many markets as a natural and sustainable functional fiber. Many consumers are interested in the conditions under which the products they use every day are produced. What impact does a product have on nature, on the employees in the company and on me as a customer? Sustainability has become a "must".

And this is where sustainable wool finishing becomes extremely important, as the prevailing finishing standard is based on classic chlorine chemistry, which is extremely harmful to the environment. EXP is the abbreviation for "EX-Pollution". EXP stands for the elimination of the pollutants normally used in wool finishing. Despite the fact that the finished wool is fully machine washable at the highest level (5x5A), it is processed without the usual chlorine contamination. With EXP, it is even possible to tumble dry processed merino garments. With this globally patented innovation, Schoeller sets a milestone and once again confirms its ecological claim


With EXP, it is possible to dry appropriately produced clothing in the tumble dryer. (Total Easy Care)

Comparable level of machine washability to the conventional superwash process ( 5 x 5 A  - TM 31)

Unlike conventional anti-felt finishes, the EXP process is chlorine-free. It works with non-toxic salts.

The EXP process is water-saving, requiring up to 50% less water than conventional finishing processes.

The EXP process requires far fewer chemicals than other finishing processes. However, these chemicals are many times more valuable.

The EXP process is certified according to the strict guidelines of the GOTS standard

The EXP process does not release any AOX (adsorbable organic halogen compounds) compared to conventional finishing processes.
