Time to celebrate Wool Week

Outsider loves wool week 2016

Now in it's 7th year, the Campaign for Wool has designated 10th -16th Otober as Wool Week.  Just as we head into the chillier autumn months it's the perfect time to celebrate all things fleecy.

Natural and renewable: wool is grown as a by-product, not made; every year sheep grow a new fleece. Wool products also use less energy than man-made fibres during manufacture.

Biodegradable: when disposed of, natural wool fibre takes only a few years to decompose. With a naturally high nitrogen content it can even act as a fertilizer.

Breathable: wool’s natural structure allows it to absorb and release water vapour into the atmosphere, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

Durable and elastic: wool fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still have the power to recover and return to its natural shape. Quality wool garments look good for longer.

One of the many reasons we love wool here at Outsider, is that there is no other fibre that gives us the same cosy warmth naturally.  Here are some of our favourite styles:

1. Lambswool beanie hat in charcoal and grey
