Artilect M-Artilectual Hoodie: a biodegradable wool performance hoodie

Now, I know what you’re saying – given that wool is a natural fiber, it shouldn’t be a surprise that it’s biodegradable. But if you are looking at a performance hoodie, one with stretch and moisture wicking? That becomes a different story. A story that the Artilect M-Artilectual Hoodie is offering.

The material

All of this is made possible by Nuyarn Merino, blended here with organic cotton. With the merino wool, you’re getting the moisture wicking and anti-odor, as well as warmth management. The cotton, that helps the hoodie sit comfortably. All in all, it gives you a performance feel (including stretch), without any man-made fibers.

What Artilect says about it

Made with an all-natural and 100% biodegradable fabric, the Artilectual Hoodie is a true blend of sustainability, warmth, and style. Utilising a world’s-first Nuyarn Merino and organic cotton blended fabric, it exhibits the ultrasoft, fast-drying properties of superfine Merino with an easy drape of organic cotton. It’s ergonomically designed with refined flatlock seams that deliver exceptional stretch and recovery without the need for Spandex. A drawstring hood provides additional weather protection, and a handy pocket secures small valuables when you’re on the go. Incredibly versatile, comfortable, and easy to care for too, simply machine wash on a low setting and hang to dry for fresh adventures.

Wrapping things up

Given that it’s not 100% wool, the Artilect M-Artilectual Hoodie seems like it will be a good layer for cool summertime nights. If you’re wanting to add one to your bag, it’s available in four colors for $78 (down from the regular price of $260!) directly at
