Why work with wool?

Less energy and water than other fibres
Wool uses 18% less energy than polyester and nearly 70% less water than cotton to produce 100 sweaters.
No microplastics, unlike synthetics
Wool is 100% biodegradable so does not contribute to microplastic pollution in our oceans or on our land.
