"While the fashion industry continues to produce more and more clothes made from synthetics, we’ve ignored the wonders of #wool. Not only is #wool unusually cozy and durable, but its creators (the sheep) can also help regenerate the world’s drying, fire-prone landscapes. The good news: a #wool revival seems to be underway." #keepitwool

Tracey Topp shared Mark Warren's post to the group: We Love NZ Wool.

Just as predicted, sheep and Wool are becoming recognised in USA as being very eco friendly , and are important to saving the planet. Is this the rise of Wool as the new wonder fibre we have all been predicting and waiting for?

Wool, and the sheep that produce it, constitute one of the most effective environmental teams on the planet. Fortunately, after decades of neglect in favor of wool's synthetic (and harmful) alternatives, wool may be enjoying a renaissance.

H. Dawson Wool

The history of wool begins before recorded history. When man first clothes himself in the woolly skins of wild sheep, he discovered a durable fabric that gave him what nothing else could give. Wool has always protected mankind from the heat, cold, wind, and rain #TBT #ThrowbackThursday.
