My friend suggested trying Capiline Patagonia base layer. I am only interested in it if it has substantial recycled polyester content. I can't find that information with the garment listed. Could you tell me how much is in those items. like the quarter zip top?
Hi. I would suggest that you contact Patagonia for the recycled content of specific products. It's possible that the percentage may vary not only by product but also by production run depending on supply.
FWIW Recycled Polyester
...we’ve incorporated recycled polyester into our hard shells, boardshorts, fleece and Capilene® baselayers, and overall have very little virgin polyester left in our line. We’re actively working to convert the remaining amount to recycled material.
For the Fall 2021 season, 89% of our polyester fabrics are made with recycled polyester.
Hi @Ivey - Thanks for reaching out!
While we aren't sure which specific Capilene Base Layer you are interested in, we are going to share the information we have using the Women's Capilene Thermal Weight Zip-Neck Base Layer Top as an example.
This layer's fabric composition is 92% recycled polyester and 8% spandex. For more information on the materials and impact, you can see the Impact section at the bottom of Patagonia's product page for this top.
If you are interested in another product, you can see the same type of details as above on Patagonia's website or respond here and we can help get that for you.
Hopefully this helps!
