Wool Week Events

Here's everything happening for Wool Week in October

BIODEGRADABLE At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil, or the marine environment where it decomposes, releasing valuable nitrogen-based nutrients into the ground/ocean.
100% NATURAL Wool grows naturally on sheep, it is a keratin protein fibre, similar to human hair and is 100% natural and not man-made.
RENEWABLE As long as there is grass to graze on, water to drink, air and sunshine sheep will produce a new fleece every year; making wool a renewable fibre source.
PROTECTION Since the Stone Age, wool has been appreciated as one of the most effective forms of all-weather protection known to man, and science is yet to produce a man-made fibre which matches its unique properties.
SLOWING DOWN FAST FASHION To combat the current throw-away culture, research shows that the average life of a wool garment is 2-10 years, compared to 2-3 years, or less, for garments made from other fibres.
