Description

The Dulsie is one-piece swimsuit with long-sleeves for extra warmth and sun protection, designed for short swims when you don’t want to wear a wetsuit.

  • Made using ECONYL®, a recycled yarn made from ocean plastics and nylon waste
  • Shape-retaining stretch fabric and lined body panel provides coverage and supportLong-sleeves and UPF 50+ offer warmth and UV protection for outdoor swimming
  • Durable and long-lasting: chlorine and sun-cream resistant fabric

With long sleeves and a UPF of 50+, the Dulsie protects your arms and shoulders from sun burn and reduces wind-chill (and outbreaks of goosebumps) when swimming or getting in and out of the water.

The high-performance stretch fabric supports cold muscles and retains its streamlined shape when wet. We’ve also used a panelled fit with low-profile seams that’s been specifically designed to enable free movement in the water, whatever your stroke.

The front of the body has an additional lining to provide more support and coverage. And we’ve used an extra-long back zip to make getting changed faster, easier and more discreet.

How It Is Made

Recycled MaterialsECONYL® is a high performance nylon yarn made from recycled ocean plastics, disused fishing nets and landfill waste. After capturing this waste, the nylon is broken down and reformed into new fibres that are chemically identical to brand new nylon. As well as reducing emissions by 90%, it can be recycled infinitely – infinitely!

Where It Is Made

This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
