Choosing wool over synthetic and manmade fibres is something we should all strive to consider
“It is abundantly clear to me that we need to make changes to the way we think about the production, use and the disposal of clothing and textiles if we are going to get anywhere near to meeting the United Nations climate change goals set for the industry. A major part of that change has to be moving from a linear system to a circular one, where textiles and clothing are produced sustainably, enjoy long use, and are made using natural materials, specifically wool, which will biodegrade naturally and quickly at the end of their useful life”.
King Charles III, former Prince of Wales,
Patron of Campaign for Wool
Our Heritage range is spun from the fleeces of UK born and bred sheep. Using mainly fleeces from the Suffolk and Romney sheep, different percentages are blended together to achieve a beautiful variety of shades.
Choosing wool over synthetic and manmade fibres is something we should all strive to consider. The longevity of a product is an investment and one the planet will be grateful for, for many years to come. Wool will naturally biodegrade back into the land giving mother nature additional nutrients she would not get from plastics and other such non-natural materials.
Knoll’s policy is to offer yarns produced from wools from non-mulesed sources only. All dyeware used in Knoll products conforms to European REACH standards.
All wool supplied by Knoll is 100% natural, biodegradable, and more beneficial to the planet.
