Pittsburgh has been at the heart of the modern environmental movement, starting with Rachel Carson and her environmental activism in the 1950s. The city is rife with green spaces, and ranks 8th in the nation for green buildings. It’s a far cry from the days when the neon was on at noon because the smog from industry darkened the skies.

There are 39 LEED buildings (a worldwide certification program for energy efficiency) in Pittsburgh, including a skyscraper, the convention center, student housing, radio station and a food bank.

This blend is inspired by the idea of something lush and verdant arising from something toxic - the interplay between acid greens and richer, darker greens.

Environmental is a blend of 50% Merino wool and 50% Shetland wool.  This listing is for 4 ounces of blended combed top.

Designed by Hipstrings, custom processed in the UK according to our specifications.

Care:  This fiber will felt.  Hand wash cold and lay flat to dry.
