TAKE PART IN WOOL WEEK 2018
Whether we wear it, felt it, knit or crochet it, wool has been important to mankind since the Stone Age, and there’s no fibre to rival it. Unlike the synthetic materials our clothes are increasingly made from today (the production of which is often detrimental to the environment), wool is entirely natural, comes from a renewable source and is biodegradable – releasing nutrients into the ground as it decomposes. This month, the Campaign for Wool, supported by HRH The Prince of Wales, celebrates its ninth annual Wool Week (8-21 October). With events taking place nationwide, its aim is to encourage us to make the most of this natural wonder. Find out more at campaignforwool.org.
