Boulder, CO – Teko, a performance sock company specializing in environmentally-sustainable materials and manufacturing processes, announces that they will be using Schoeller bluesign®-certified Wool in their Spring 2008 socks. Already leading the industry with their eco-friendly approach, Teko ups the ante again with chlorine-free, shrink-resistant wool that is even better for the planet.

The wool is still Teko's washable, shrink-resistant EcoMerino™ from the holistically sustainable Downie Dungrove farm, but the shrink-resistance is now achieved through a proprietary process developed by the Schoeller.Spinninggroup. bluesign®-certified materials have been rigorously tested for harmful effects on humans, the environment, and for efficient consumption of resources. While many textile standards identify processes that are eco-preferable in one aspect or another, the bluesign® standard certifies the material and every step of its creation, including air and water emissions, workers' health and resource management.

Teko's EcoMerino™ wool remains extremely soft, durable, washable and itch-free with the new Schoeller bluesign®-certified shrink-resistant treatment.

Teko is unique in that their eco-friendly commitment extends to their entire product line, supply chain, and daily business practices.
