We put something really good inside of your hat. Instead of using a petroleum based foam we use a high performance flexible foam made from algae biomass harvested from freshwater sources throughout the world, including Florida. The rise in global temperatures, excess nutrient runoff, and human activities have contributed to an uncontrollable rise in algae growth- harming plant, animal and human life. Bloom foam removes the algae, recirculates freshwater back into the habitat and turns this biomass into perfect foam for making a better quality hat and improves our environment.

To create the world’s first cruelty-free wool hat, we first had to go back to our supply chain and make sure we only use wool from farms in Australia that do not practice Mulesing, then track that specific wool from our distributor in China to our factory. Each shipment is certified Non-Mulesed wool and all parties, including the sheep, are very happy with the results. Mulesing is the removal of chunks of skin on the buttocks of the sheep to stop a disease called Flystrike. Over 20 million Merino lambs are Mulesed in Australia each year. Hopefully by educating people on this topic, Australia might consider the alternatives to this cruel practice. There isn’t really much of an increase in costs in the finished hat, it’s just a process that most manufacturers couldn’t be bothered to undertake or perhaps didn’t know existed. We encourage other hat manufacturers and wool users to consider a change. It took us approximately two years to sort out the details and luckily there are more and more Australian farms with a holistic approach to sheep farming so more non-Mulesed wool is available now. You can read more about cruelty-free wool from our friends at NewMerino.com.au
