One of the benefits of raising sheep is that not only do we get delicious lamb to eat, we also get a lot of wool. We use our wool for hats, scarves, mittens, socks, blankets, pillows, crafting, and a host of other things. We wear wool pretty much every day, year round.
1. Sustainable. Sheep grow a new fleece every year.
2. Biodegradable. Wool breaks down without harm to the environment. .
3. Odor resistant.
4. Moisture wicking. Wool absorbs 30% of its weight before you feel wet.
5. Temperature regulating. Thin fibers allow tiny air pockets in the fabric to trap your body heat, which provides superb insulation. As moisture evaporates on hot days, the air in these pockets cools and keeps you feeling comfortable.
