Not everyone knows that wool has so many wonderful properties making it one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly natural fibres on the planet. Other than being beautifully warm, it confers many benefits as follows:
Wool improves indoor air quality but entrapping oxygen.
Wool is naturally fire resistant and can be utilised as a fire retardant.
Wool is naturally odour resistant because it inhibits the proliferation of nasty microorganisms (you wont get smelly feet when wearing wool socks).
Wool is biodegradable - as a natural fibre, it will degrade naturally in the soil.
Wool lasts longer - as a durable fibre, wool will withstand the test of time.
Wool forms part of the natural carbon cycle
Wool is renewable unlike nonrenewable fibres derived from limited supplies of fossil fuels such as oil.
Wool is 100% natural as it grows on sheep.
Selecting Welsh wool locally also keeps the carbon footprint as low as possible, and benefits local farmers too.
