Wool is grown on sheep and is a natural fibre which is rapidly renewable. Sheep are shorn annually in the UK. It offers many solutions to the textile producer as there are so many breeds of sheep with many varieties of fleece type. A single sheep will provide approximately 4 kilograms of wool which can make up t0 10 metres of fabric – enough to cover a large sofa or 15 chairs.
Wool blends well with alpaca and makes strong and durable fabrics for outer wear and furnishings.
