Our Premium Eco-Wool
We use one of the finest wool mills in the country. Our dear friends own the mill in Northern California and source the best wool we have ever seen. Since we use wool in our products, you can be sure that we have searched far and wide to find not only the highest quality wool but also wool from sustainable sources.
â€¨What is our Premium Eco-Wool?â€¨â€¨â€¨- Local Sourcing: Wool is sourced only from small sheep farmers in the U.S. This year most of the wool is coming from small farmers along the West Coast. This is quite a political issue, actually, since most of the wool used in the U.S. is imported from New Zealand and Australia, greatly undermining our own local farms and our economy.â€¨
A Word About Organic Wool: We do offer a few products that use organic wool, but it is actually only when we cannot find the same wool product that uses Eco-Wool as we believe the Eco-Wool is currently the better product. The majority of organic wool that is available in the U.S. market suited for making bedding comes from New Zealand and Australia. While it is great that there is a growing market of organic wool, we believe that local wool which supports small U.S. farmers and creates U.S. jobs is far more advantageous than a certified organic wool- especially considering that there is a rigorous program to ensure the wool is produced sustainably. Our wool is currently working on promoting organic wool from U.S. sources.
