But where does wool come from? And how is wool made? Find out more about the journey of wool, from the field of sheep to the perfect bedding.
Where does wool come from?Not only does wool offer a whole host of unbeatable benefits that enhance our sleep, but it’s also one of the most ethical, natural fibres out there. And this all starts with where the sheep live.
In line with our 5 Freedoms Policy, the farms that our wool is sourced from are independently verified and audited for complete assurance. With no use of pesticides or toxic chemicals, our sheep have been fed on organic pastures for at least two years. This in turn leads to happy sheep, which ultimately paves the way for better quality wool, better quality bedding and a better quality night’s sleep.
Our traceable wool is organically certified, and sourced from soft, downs type wool from breeds such as Poll Dorset and Texel’s located right here in the UK. These sheep are nurtured and cared for by our trusted expert farmers, who are passionate about providing the highest quality of wool.
When the time is right, the sheep are shorn by their farmer. Not only is this the first big step in delivering the softest, cosiest wool for your bedding, but it’s also a great day for the sheep! We all love a new haircut, but the weight lifted from a sheep’s body during this process makes them feel lighter, more free and much cleaner.
The wool is then graded, scoured and washed twice in the UK before it is made exclusively for us at the very best factories across the UK and the EU, and many of them boasting hundreds of years of experience between them in their area of expertise. We believe in putting people first, so by investing in the very best companies, we endeavour to ensure that these trades will be around to supply us with the highest quality for decades to come.
Once it’s squeaky clean and ready to go, the wool is carefully quilted and lovingly crafted into our high-quality bedding by only the most experienced of craftspeople.
The final step of the sheep to sleep journey? It’s delivered straight to your door, ready to transform your relationship with sleep forever. And with Woolroom, you’ll be able to trace it right back to the farm it came from – even down to the name of the farmer and the breed of sheep!
