Exploring its natural beauty 

The beauty of raw wool lies in its simplicity and authenticity, 

The beauty of raw wool lies in its simplicity and authenticity, 

It reminds us of the importance of sustainable and environmentally-friendly materials. As we strive to reduce our impact on the planet, raw wool is a stunning reminder of the beauty that can be found in natural and sustainable materials.

Sustainability and Ethical Considerations:

Wool is a renewable resource, as sheep produce a new fleece each year. It is also biodegradable, making it an environmentally friendly choice compared to synthetic fibers. 

But take in mind that wool to use, be sourced from farms that prioritize animal welfare, ensuring that sheep are treated ethically and their well-being is respected.

When keeping in mind Its sustainability and ethical considerations it makes wool an attractive choice for those seeking environmentally friendly materials.

The wool I use to work with is from the rare Schoonebeker sheep and the indigenous Drents heath sheep.

(Drenthe is the province in the north east of the Netherlands where I grew up, what I always call home.)

I work with local shepherds who uses his flock of sheep for sustainable and ecological management of the heath landscapes.

The sheep's grazing behavior helps maintain the balance of the delicate heathland ecosystem. By selectively grazing on certain plants and shrubs, they prevent the dominance of fast-growing species, allowing a diverse range of plants and wildlife to thrive. This ecological approach ensures the preservation of the unique flora and fauna of Drenthe's heathlands, contributing to the conservation of biodiversity and the overall health of the ecosystem.

Wool reflects the landscape, climate, and soil, creating a unique and diverse range of textures and colors. This connection to nature and the farming community is an essential part of the beauty of raw wool, and it gives the material a sense of authenticity and integrity.
