What is organic wool?



  1. 0 Votes

    For wool to be called organic, it must come from sheep on a farm that employs organic methods of livestock production. In the US (and many countries), this includes feeding the livestock organic feed, not using pesticides on the food the animals eat or in the area they graze, not using genetic engineering or hormones, and encouraging the health of the animals. For sheep in particular, this means that they cannot be dipped in chemicals to remove parasites, and owners have to make sure they are using the grazing land responsibly. The cost of organic wool is higher than traditional, but it can be used for all the same applications.
