Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

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.
