The base material of each SANDERMANN collection is wool from sheep that are bred for other properties than wool, a by-product which is often burned in Denmark, when the sheep are shorn once or twice a year.
Unfortunately, there is a widespread misunderstanding that this type of wool cannot be used for anything - a claim SANDERMANN has set out to prove wrong. The brand have established a close relation to their suppliers – the sheep – as they collect the wool themselves, sort it, and have their own yarns spun on the island of Funen. The yarns are then used for knitwear produced in Ikast, Denmark. SANDERMANN also source deadstock fabrics from the local remaining textile industry in Denmark and use them for skirts, trousers and tops which are cut with a zero waste approach.
SANDERMANN’s latest collection, Stories of Stranded Lives, is made solely of local waste materials and it was inspired by lighthouses on the Danish West Coast and the maritime life connected to them. The collection consists of knitwear made of Danish wool, which would have otherwise been discarded, and deadstock fabrics from the remaining Danish textile industry. The sewn garments are even cut with a zero waste pattern design approach.
