THE BENEFITS OF WOOL
Wool is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep and is 100% natural. Wool has long been appreciated as a highly effective form of all-weather protection; science is yet to produce a man-made material to match its unique properties.
As long as there is grass to graze on, every year sheep will produce a new fleece; making wool a renewable fibre source. Woolgrowers actively work to safeguard the environment and make the industry sustainable for future generations.
At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil to decompose, releasing valuable nutrients into the ground. Natural wool takes less than a year to break down, whereas synthetics can take up to 200 years to degrade.
