We Prioritize Sustainability

Sustainability is a key part of our Ridge Merino promise to you. We strive to use all-natural, renewable and biodegradable fabric and materials whenever possible.

Most of our products are made mostly (or entirely) of Merino wool, a natural, renewable and biodegradable fiber produced from the Merino breed of sheep. The sheep eat grass, drink water and take in the sunshine — all essential ingredients to creating soft, comfortable Merino wool fibers. We only use wool from non-mulesed sheep, and 100% of our wool is sustainably sourced from certified humane sheep farmers in Australia and New Zealand.

We're A Certified California Green Business

We were the first company in Mammoth Lakes, California to achieve Green Business Certification from the California Green Business Network. To receive this certification, businesses must prove that they use sustainable and environmentally-friendly business practices. We’re proud to officially have Ridge held to this higher standard, and it was a natural next step for our company.
