Wool is a biodegradable, renewable resources that’s a by-product of global sheep industry that reduces the amount of water, petroleum-based fertilizers and pesticides needed for growing plants. When pelletized, wool helps regulate water in the soil, reducing the need for watering, increases aeration, and are a slow release fertilizer with essential and micronutrients. The wool used is dirty, short, discoloured, breaks, and generally not wanted by anyone.
BUT WHAT IS THE IMPACT - Less water and chemical used
Wool pellets can be a local, sustainable, and long term way to improve soil quality, growing more and better food. Wool's natural properties naturally conserve water, and reduce the need for harmful chemicals.
Wool retains more water than peat-moss, the most popular soil retention amendment, but wool also has more nitrogen that barnyard manures!
