value chain rhea.

Rhea consciously chose steps for each part of the process, from the main fiber sourcing to the production process. In line with their philosophy, they have full traceability of every step in the production process.

Once you receive your knit, you can scan the QR code to view the NATIVA Blockchain website, where you can trace the journey of the wool knit; from wool to wear.
wash & care
We encourage you to wear more and wash less; 25% of a garment's environmental footprint happens at home. Because Merino Wool is self-cleaning, you can use the air-out method and spot clean when possible. Reducing the water and power used to wash makes it gentler to our environment and extends your knit's life cycle.
The knits of Rhea are machine washable. We advise the delicate cycle on your washing machine teamed with a low temperature and mild detergent as the ideal setting to wash the knits. We also recommend a mesh washing bag for heavier knits to help keeping their shape during the spin cycle.
Another fast and effective way to reduce the full wash cycle is spot cleaning. Stains and spills happen; act fast and treat them immediately where possible. Ox Gall Soap is a great, natural tool for removing stains. Use a small amount of water and dab softly on the stain, lather it in, and wait for a few minutes, rinse and repeat until the stain is gone. Alternatively, dry cleaning works well for stains too.
