HERA is a classic rib sweater with a standing collar and an oversized, slightly boxy silhouette. Made from 100% Sartuul wool - a durable wool that comes from the downy coat of a rare nomadic Mongolian sheep, making it both extremely durable and breathable at the same time. It will readily soften after a few days of wear, so after buying it we recommend giving it a few wears to help this process. Just like a good pair of shoes, after this brief break-in period you will never want to be without it when the temperatures drop.
We source our Sartuul from the Green Gold project, which helps protect the Mongolian steppe and provide a better income for the country’s traditional nomadic herders.
Classic fit that is true to size. We recommend that you choose your regular size.
About the brand
Sustainability has been at the core of Aiayu since their inception. It began with an intuitive conviction that it only made sense to produce things respectfully, responsibly, and conscientiously. It is not something we have tried to retroactively work into our business model along the way.
They have developed a set of principles which guide how Aiayu reduces its ecological impact and betters the lives of each person involved in making our products. We have determined these to be; designing items that are made to last, sourcing nature’s best materials sustainably, responsible and craft-focused production, and less waste. After 15 years of commitment to these values, they are proud of our evolving legacy of social and environmental sustainability.
