Point6 has developed direct relationships with merino wool farmers in New Zealand on family-run sheep stations. These farmers hand-select wool for Point6 according to strict fiber specifications. Our sheep are raised according to the highest standards of animal welfare with ample food, comfort, and shelter provided in a disease and distress-free environment. We regularly visit our family-run farms to visit our farmers and happy sheep.
The most sustainable way to process merino.
Naturetexx plasma clean uses only air and plasma, powered by renewable energy, to make merino wool machine washable and super soft. Naturetexx is the ecological alternative to the industry standard merino wool processing, a process called superwashing, that uses chlorine and water to process the merino wool fibers.
Designed, knit, headquartered in USA.
We invested in state-of-the-art technology so we could make the best wool products right here in the USA at competitive prices. Our products are designed and tested in the extreme conditions of the Rockies where we’re headquartered and woven in our mills in the Appalachian Mountains in the Southeast. These areas were once where the majority of clothing was manufactured for the US and we’re proud to be part of bringing back high quality, technical manufacturing to these mills.
We make sustainable choices from the selection of our wool to the final shipment of our products. All packages are shipped in 100% recycled poly-mailers provided by EcoEnclose and are made in the USA. Their 100% recycled film has a lower carbon footprint than paper and virgin plastic, including compostable bioplastic. Check with your local recycling programs to confirm that these are eligible to be recycled in thin film bins.
Point6 supports communities in need with donations, sponsorships and more. From donating recycled socks to the homeless to providing product for silent auctions, membership drives and volunteer parks.
Point6 understands and beleives in its responsibility to support those who need it. If you know of a person or group that could use Point6 socks, feel free to contact us!
