Royal Robbins Builds on Sweater Craft Legacy and Commits to Natural Fibers with Launch of Fall/Winter 2024 Collection
November 7, 2023
Adventure clothing made with 100% RWS certified wool, hemp, and beechwood fibers
SAN FRANCISCO (Nov. 7, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Outdoor adventure brand Royal Robbins unveils its latest apparel collection for fall 2024. Founded in 1968 by iconic climbers and adventurers, Liz and Royal Robbins, the brand has long been trusted and worn by climbers and those seeking a life of adventure. As one of the original U.S. outdoor brands, Royal Robbins has revolutionized the industry with a legacy of iconic styles. The goal has always been to create versatile, durable, and stylish products, while minimizing impact on the planet. Liz and Royal’s belief that nature and adventure are good for the soul shines through for fall/winter 2024.
Leaning into its origin, Royal Robbins introduces Rockcraft Sweaters, 100% merino wool outdoor performance sweaters. They are made with 100% Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certified wool, certified by Control Union cert. 895314. Merino wool is comfortable and durable, offering natural warmth—wet or dry. The use of natural materials extends beyond wool, with hemp as the primary ingredient in the new men’s and women’s Clouds Rest Hemp shirts. Finally, the brand’s all-time bestselling Desert Pucker and Mojave Pucker long-sleeve shirts are carbon neutral and are made with renewable beechwood.
Ninety six-percent of styles in the fall 2024 line meet or exceed the brand’s highest sustainability standard, which dictates a product must be made with 50% or more preferred cotton, recycled polyester, traceable wool, preferred forest materials, hemp, or recycled nylon.
Key products from Royal Robbins in Fall 2024 include:
- Rockcraft Wool Crew L/S (right; W+M) – This 100% merino wool 5-gauge sweater pays special tribute to Royal Robbins brand heritage.
