All three manufacturers produce very high quality wool fabrics. Wool uses significantly less energy during its production than manufacturing man-made fibres. Wool production produces lower carbon dioxide emissions and hence has a low carbon impact on the earth.

Old wool fabric and fibre can be recycled for many uses including insulation and geotextiles, as well as being an effective compost as it slowly releases nitrogen rich nutrients back to the soil.
