Versatile, sustainable, and buttery soft, we stitch our Alpaca Pima Hoodie from a high-quality, premium blend of renewable alpaca fiber and plush Supima cotton. Its drawstring hood and easy-wearing fit make it the perfect laidback essential. And because it’s made entirely from natural, low-impact materials, it’s also breathable, lightweight, and moisture- and temperature-regulating. Complete the set with our Alpaca Pima Jogger.
Fit: Relaxed fit.
We track clearly defined, measurable progress towards our sustainability goals on a 1-5 scale.
Material supply chain has full traceability. Hass holds a B Corp certification that addresses transparency and we've met established impact goals. Hass has formal donation commitments that account for more than 2% of revenue. Material supply chain uses Higg FEM and FSLM tools to measure impact.
Hass is Climate Neutral Certified. Alpaca fiber produces high emissions. Our Peruvian supplier is, however, required to meet their environmental management commitments, with parameters set and audited by the government. We actively participate in advocacy campaigns for clean air.
Alpaca fiber does not release microfibers into waterways. We actively advocate for Clean Water. The company has performed an LCA on this material to compare it to industry alternatives. Our supplier is required to report on specific metrics regarding water use and eutrophication. They pass in every category.
Alpaca biodegrades at home and under industrial applications within 1 to 5 years. Hass sources a fiber that is essential for the Peruvian way of life. We also advocate for safer material legislation through high-engagement lobbying activities.
Hass's B Corp score in the supply chain management area is high (6.4 out of 8.83 points). Our supplier employs underrepresented populations and offers a variety of benefits to their workers including scholarships, legal and consulting services, healthcare, and life insurance. The supplier is also part of Fair Trade Peru.
Hass is pursuing its Zero Waste certification. We have invested in capital purchases, like paper roll pack machines, to reduce single-use plastic consumption. Hass has a program that results in 90%+ donation rates of returned products. We use select materials that are certified according to specific recycled standards (GRS, RCS).
Breathable, Temperature Regulating
Renewable and Deluxe Alpaca Fiber
Possibly the most luxurious and practical renewable fiber on Earth. Alpaca wool was once reserved for Incan royalty. It’s still sought after for its unparalleled warmth, decadent texture, light weight, and temperature and moisture regulation. We ethically source our sustainable alpaca from a high-elevation regenerative farm in the Peruvian Andes that ensures traceability. And because our farmers closely monitor their environmental impact and adhere to strict responsible sourcing standards, our alpaca has a smaller carbon footprint than other luxury fibers like merino and cashmere.
Silky Soft and Long-Lasting Pima Cotton
Pima cotton is a strong, extra-long, high-end cotton native to and grown in Peru that’s known for its silky soft texture and durability. And because Pima cotton is typically handpicked, it has a lower environmental impact and produces less waste than conventional cotton.
Sustainable Fashion Is Essential
Fast, traditional fashion has massive environmental costs, accounting for 10 percent of the world’s carbon emissions. The industry is the second-largest consumer of water — it takes 700 gallons, for example, to produce one non-organic cotton shirt. But Hass materials — like our organic cotton — are exclusively natural, biodegradable, and renewable. Natural and organic materials have less of an environmental footprint than synthetic fabrics, using less energy and water, and no toxins to produce. By exclusively harnessing natural, non-toxic dyes, we also ensure our pieces are processed in a way that is safe and sustainable for people and the planet.
