Wool durable, warm and aesthetically pleasing, what makes it exceptional is its organic, biodegradable nature.
Even when it has been used, reused and recycled, and finally comes to the end of its life it simply returns to the earth, releasing its valuable nutrients back into the soil with no detrimental effects.
Like silk, cotton and linen, wool is natural - used for thousands of years because of its practical qualities. Delivering a versatility that is almost unmatched and a functionality that is certainly unrivalled.
