For 2019, Wool Week centres on the environmentally-friendly properties of wool compared to synthetic, plastic-based fibres like acrylic, nylon and polyester. Every year a sheep produces a new fleece, making wool a natural, renewable material. As we all become increasingly aware of plastic microfibres choking the oceans and plastic waste lying for hundreds of years in landfill, wool offers a biodegradable alternative.
A wool blanket is strong and durable, giving warmth and enjoyment for many years. At the end of its life, the wool yarn can be combed back into fibres and re-spun into recycled yarn for use again. If the item is damaged beyond recycling, wool can be returned to the soil where it decomposes, releasing valuable nitrogen-based nutrients into the ground.
Choosing wool for your clothing and home textiles is a simple way to live be both stylish and sustainable. So, check the labels and opt for more natural fibres where you can!
We’re dispatching as usual today and deliveries are taking place as normal, with contactless arrangements at your door. We really appreciate your continued support. Thank you!
