Ethical Treatment of animals:
X by Kygo has animal welfare high on our agenda, and we source our wool from a European spinner who has steel control on their value chain, and does not allow mulesing or any mistreatment of the sheep. For the time being, this means we are not sourcing any wool from Australia. We are closely monitoring the standards related to wool through our subcontractors, and plan to embrace those that become operative. Our chosen spinner is also in a stellar class when it comes to eco-innovation and new technology challenging problematic environmental issues.
