Did you know?

Wool provides natural UV protection - for both humans and sheep. Lightweight and breathable  and its Flame-resistant.

 You've probably heard that wool "doesn't stink." That's because it is naturally anti-microbial, which helps reduce stinky bacterial growth in garments. It's also Natural and renewable.

Wool is biodegradable. If used in the garden, it breaks down slowly, fertilizing the plants with a generous nitrogen content of a whopping 17 percent compared with the 6 percent nitrogen in commercial turf products and it is water-retentive.

Sheep Shearing

Most sheep are shorn annually to:

  • Harvest the fiber at the appropriate length for spinning into yarn

  • Prevent buildup of manure and urine that can lead to parasitic infection

  • Allow adequate wool regrowth to improve the sheep’s ability to control its body temperature during extreme heat and cold conditions.

  • Create a clean environment for newborn lambs.

Wool garments are typically longer lasting than those made of cotton or silk. A wool fiber can be bent 20,000 times before breaking, whereas cotton breaks after 3,000 bends. Wool is Long-lasting and durable as well as a great insulator.

Surprisingly , Sheep have rectangular pupils that give them amazing peripheral vision – it’s estimated their field of vision is between 270 and 360 degrees; humans average about 155 degrees. These are great assets when you’re a prey animal. It’s like surround sound for the eyes.

Sheep on the White House lawn

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison all raised sheep. In fact, Madison was sworn in wearing a coat spun from his sheep’s wool. Woodrow Wilson kept a flock at the White House during World War I to keep the grass trimmed as a cost-cutting measure and to show support for the war effort.
