our growers wool
Paddock grazed sheep create great wool. One of the reasons New Zealand wool is so good is because we feed our sheep on grass, out in the paddock, with the rest of the flock. Right where they belong.
Wool is 100% natural grown year-round by NZ’s sheep, consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass.
Every year our sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.
When a wool fibre is disposed of, it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Wool is the most reused and recycled fibre …..Even though wool represents only 1.2% of the virgin fibre supply, surveys have shown it represents about 5% of clothing donated to charity. Wool is also one of the most sought after recycled textiles for converting into new long-lasting products, such as garments, mattresses and upholstery.
