Why wool? As part of #WoolWeek we’re sharing a bit more about the amazing properties of wool, and why we should all be thinking carefully about the materials we use, where they come from and how sustainable they are.
First up, wool is 100% NATURAL - it is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep. Since the Stone Age, it has been appreciated as one of the most effective forms of all-weather protection known to man, and science is yet to produce a fibre which matches its unique properties.
Our own wool comes from our flock of Romneys who are sheared in the early summer months and the wool gathered by hand to ensure the very finest fleeces are used to produce our range. You can find out more about shearing on our story highlights under ‘shearing’ 🐑

So, before we start sharing more about all the amazing properties of wool for #WoolWeek , first a short thread to give an intro to who we are, what we do and why we do it...

#BritishWool #OurStory
Myself (Kristina) and my husband, Paul, set up Romney Marsh Wools in 2009, based on a firm belief that we wanted to raise awareness of all the benefits that British wool can bring.
The Romney sheep have been in the family for at least 6 generations and our current numbers are around 1,200 Romney ewes & 150 Merinos.
