    In Sweden, people wash their outerwear considerably less than we do in the U.S. It simply is not good for the life of the outerwear to over-wash it.

Pyret, we advise our customers that once you have washed one of our waterproof garments more than approximately 50 times, the “waterproofness” of that item will start to break down.

    Taking good care of our clothes is one of the best things we can all do for the environment. Always follow the washing instructions, mend whatever can be repaired and pass any garment a child has outgrown on to a new owner. You can also transform any worn-out garment into something new, which is called upcycling or creative reuse. A top can be upcycled into a gym bag and mittens into sweatbands.

    OUR GARMENTS ARE COMPLETELY FREE OF PERFLUORINATED SUBSTANCES All Polarn O. Pyret’s outerwear with water repellent abilities are completely free of sealers containing perfluorinated compounds, known as PFCs. The outer garments are treated with a PFC-free substance to maintain the same water repellent function. We have been using this material for our outerwear since 2015. PFCs, or perfluorinated substances are commonly used in waterproofing that allows textile surfaces, dirt and water repellent. We have now decided to phase out these substances entirely when they have a negative impact on the environment and the working conditions. Today, we use a material not only meets our chemical requirements but also our quality and functional requirements. Polarn O. Pyret is constantly working to update its chemicals restrictions!
