Why Merino Wool, Nature's Miracle Fibre?

Natural fibres & bio-derived fibres are our best bet for a sustainable future. Merino wool is the most technical natural fibre. Plus, it is renewable and biodegradable, so it's as tender to the environment as it is to you.

The Versa Throw utilizes 100% Superfine Merino Wool, thus it is:

  • Temperature-Regulating, so it will keep you from overheating, especially when worn as a hat or mask

  • Moisture Wicking, so you won't feel damp in Winter or Summer. This also means that it's quick drying!

  • Naturally Anti-Bacterial, so you can wash it less and save water & minimize your carbon footprint

  • Lightweight, making it an ideal staple for commuters, adventurers & travellers

  • Organic & Sustainable due to the fact that it is biodegradable, durable & high performance

  • Non-itchy & Soft due to its very fine merino wool fibres



    Designed for your year-round comfort, without sacrificing style.

    Simply smart throw with the right mix of performance, durability, cut and drape.


     One size. Unisex.


    Responsibly Made In Canada

    All our clothes and accessories, including the Versa Toque, are handmade (yes, by actual people) fairly in Toronto, Canada. Project Vdora contracts local seamstresses to support the local fashion design & production industry. This ensures fair labour practices, a positive social impact & a reduced carbon footprint.

    Now, this is the good life! Que Vdora.



    Easy Care:

    Handwash (recommended) or machine wash your merino wool toque on cool, gentle setting. Do not bleach. Avoid fabric softeners. Do not wring tight. Simply lay flat to dry.

    Fast 5-minute handwashing tip for your wool:
    Soak in a basin and wash gently with your shampoo (wool is hair after all).
    Rinse. Then lay flat to dry.

    True sustainability in harmony with nature.

    Project Vdora was born out of necessity - a need for eco conscious, ethical and smart solutions. There is always a compromise to be made when it comes to consumption.

    The answer to environmental and social concerns lie within respect & moderation.

    It's not enough for an item to be "eco". A true eco-friendly piece has to be smart & becoming - able to keep up with your lifestyle gracefully, so you can do more with less. In turn, consume less and consume slow.
    This is the aim of Project Vdora:
    To provide true quality capsule pieces for year-round wear - in virtually any climate - through mindful design, environmental choices & labour practices that support small, individual & local livelihood.

    With the right solutions & virtuous attitude we can live beautifully in grace and harmony.

    When designing Vdora's smart clothing, I carefully select high quality eco-friendly fabrics that meet the brand's sustainability & ethical standards.

    Vdora presents versatile clothing that meet your needs by using these smart fabrics: 100% Ethically Sourced Merino Wool, 100% Recycled PET treated with ChitoSante and organic plant-based fabrics namely Tencel & Bamboo.

    100% Merino Wool

     
    vdora merino wool versa line
    The Versa Line utilizes ethically sourced 100% Merino wool. It is reactive, natural, renewable and biodegradable.

     

    Lightweight, Soft & Resilient 
    Unlike other wool products, Vdora's fine Merino wool is non-itchy! This is due to the ultra-fine fibres that make up Merino. It also has a natural elasticity and resilience that enable our versatile apparel to fit well and move with you.

     

    Moisture Wicking & Temperature Resistant
    Merino wool is excellent for keeping your body cool when it's warm, and warm when it's cool - ideal for all 4 seasons!

     

    Keep you cool.
    Merino moves moisture - even as vapor, before it turns to sweat - from your skin, keeping you cooler when your body temperature rises. This makes for a breathable fabric that is ideal for hot climates and exercising!

     

    Stay comfortably warm
    Merino wool's natural crimp makes for a natural insulation in the cooler months by trapping "dead air" creating a buffer to the cold.

    Merino apparel is amazing at keeping you from feeling cold & damp. Merino wool fibres excel in moving moisture away from the skin. So much so that even if the fabric gets wet, the surface area of your skin can remain dry. According to a few researches, Merino fabrics can absorb up to 30% of their dry weight before feeling wet. Most synthetic fabrics typically feel wet after they absorb less than 7%.

     

    Anti-Bacterial & Odor Resistant
    Merino wool has natural anti-bacterial properties.On top of that, because of its awesome moisture-wicking properties, odor causing bacteria can't thrive!
    Wash less. Save time & water!

     

    UV Protection
    This fine organic Merino wool is naturally UV resistant (up to UPF 50) so you can worry less and enjoy the sun more!

     

    Recommended Care:
    Hand wash cold or machine wash in gentle/cool setting. Hang or lay flat to dry. If you must iron, please do so in low temperature.

    100% Recycled PET, treated with EPA certified ChitoSante

    vdora fluid rpet collection
     with UPF 50 protection (all day UVA & UVB sun protection)

     

    The Fluid Collection is made with 100% Recycled PET - yes, the same kind of plastic used on your water bottles! We strongly encourage recycling materials that would otherwise end up in our oceans. While a lot of people don't know how to recycle, reuse or re-purpose their plastic bottles, the conscious fashion innovators have come up with a way to turn plastic into wearable fabric. We're taking advantage of this technology. Vdora's Fluid pieces are made from GRS Gold Level certified recycled yarn.

     

    Optimized with ChitoSante
    While it's easy to want to support and wear recycled plastic, we know that it's a challenge to overcome our inhibitions to sport them in warmer temperatures when we tend to perspire. This is why we use ChitoSante treated rPET fabric.

     

    ChitoSante is a new environmentally friendly treatment that is made from a natural biomass - crab and/or shrimp shells. It is the only anti-bacterial bio-agent in the world that is certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

     

    Chitosante is breathable, durable, quick drying, softanti-static and easy to handle. On top of these already astounding benefits, ChitoSante also has natural & durable anti-bacterial properties. Wash less. Save time & water!

     

    This means that our ChitoSante treated Fluid Collection strongly inhibit the growth of bacteria, allowing them to stay fresh, hygienic & odor resistant... even with minimal wash!
     
    Recommended Care :
    Hand or machine wash in gentle/cool setting with similar colours. Hang to dry. If you must iron, please do so in low temperature

    Plant Based Specialty Fabrics

    plant based organic fabric vdora

    Silky Soft (Tencel) Lyocell Fabric

    A botanic fibre, Tencel is produced from the pulp of forest grown trees (such as eucalyptus) using a close looped process (virtually no waste). How? The Lenzing group (developers of Tencel) recovers more than 99% of the solvent in a closed loop and repeatedly feeds it back into the production process.
    The Tencel fabric itself is soft, smooth, vibrant, durable and anti-bacterial!


    Bamboo Fleece

    The breathable and sustainable ultra-soft fleece is made from Bamboo plants. Bamboo does not require fertilizers or pesticides for cultivation and it grows rapidly without depleting the soil. The fibre it creates is durable and naturally breathable & anti-bacterial - truly a great material for sweatshirts!
    Wash less. Save time & water!

     

    Recommended Care : 
    Wash in gentle/warm setting with similar colours.
    Tumble dry on low heat or hang to dry.

    Wore the wrap to work yesterday and love it.

    Easier to appreciate in work clothes than pajamas, haha. Office temperature changes a lot so used the throw as a blanket, poncho, and shawl. Looks and feels great, and is definitely going to be a favorite for a long time. I love the design which makes it so versatile.
