Warm and cozy women’s wool sweater. The technical lightweight fabric in merino wool and TENCEL™ Lyocell is an excellent all natural alternative to synthetic fleece.
Designing functional and versatile midlayers has always been a Houdini special. The Alto Crew is a warm and cozy garment made in an all natural 60% merino wool and 40% TENCEL™ Lyocell blend. Merino wool provides warmth and is naturally odor resistant. TENCEL™ Lyocell is a fiber made from cellulose that gives the fabric structure and better moisture transmission.
Let this all natural fleece keep you warm on big adventures and your everyday life. The fabric has excellent insulation qualities if you wear it underneath a winter coat or shell jacket for skiing or other winter sports. The open fabric structure will let air flow through it making sure you can ventilate any excess heat. It’s a garment that is relevant all year around.
We can highly recommend Alto Crew if you are looking for a warm technical sweater for everything from skiing to hiking or just keeping you warm on chilly days.
Please don’t throw away this garment when it’s worn out. Alto Crew is made from renewable and biodegradable fibers. The raw materials are valuable and can be used again through recycling or composting. Bring it back to a Houdini shop or one of our retailers that has a Houdini recycling unit.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are certified with the EU Ecolabel made in Austria
Warm, fluffy and soft merino wool fleece made only with natural fibers.
Wool is a fantastic material with natural bacterial and dirt resistance. Therefore, wool does not need to be washed after every use. Frequent washing has a negative effect on the wool's properties and unnecessarily wears down the garment. Instead, air your wool garments to reduce your water usage, save energy and make your garments last longer.
The Circular label means that this product is made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The Biodegradable label means that the natural fibers in our products are never mixed with synthetics, and we don’t use harmful chemicals. Therefore, you can put the fabric in a compost and nature will transform the fabric into fertile soil. Trimmings like care labels, zippers, seams etc have to be removed and can often be recycled separately. If you don't have your own compost, you can return the worn out garment to us. We have recycling units in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The Renewable label means that the fibers in the garment comes from 100% renewable sources, like wool or cellulose. We only use natural fibers that are produced in environmentally and ethically responsible sources. We use both natural and synthetic fibers, they both have their merits, but we never mix them to ensure a circular product. This means that the fabrics from all our products in natural fibers are fully biodegradable.
The Recyclable label means that the raw material in this product can be used for new products, instead of becoming waste. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.

A sustainable choice
Circular design - Towards a world without waste
We believe in circular design. Sometimes we use recycled and recyclable synthetics and sometime natural fibers. Both have their merits, but the important thing is that we save the planets resrouces and don't create any waste. On a system level, it makes a huge difference.
