The Best Natural Fiber Wardrobe Staples for the Whole Family

Whether you made the choice for the planet or for your comfort or both, it can be difficult to wear synthetic fabrics once you get used to natural fiber materials. From cotton to cashmere, the most comfortable clothes for your family are often made from natural fibers. And, not only are they kinder to the skin, natural fibers are also generally kinder to the environment because they come from renewable resources and are biodegradable. In fact, synthetic fabrics can take hundreds of years to decompose, which is especially troubling given the overflowing landfills on this planet. Even so, not all natural fibers are created equal. The most durable natural fibers require less water and pesticides, which should be considered when purchasing basic natural fiber items. The following natural fiber clothing essentials are made to last, save the planet and provide comfort for the whole family.
