Recycled Wool - Why it's so popular

In the past few years, the trend of sustainable fashion has been on the rise.

People are choosing to decrease their impact on the environment by staying away from fast fashion and opting for sustainable clothing and household items.

Recycled wool blankets are one such item that is gaining popularity for being eco-friendly. So why are they so popular?

Wool is a natural fibre known for its warmth and cosiness. While being a sustainable resource, recycled wool goes the extra mile. Recycled wool blankets can be made either from pre-existing garments which are broken down and re-spun, or from wool scraps collected during the production of new wool blankets and re-spun into new yarns. These are sometimes called 'weave up' throws. These blankets are created using scraps from mills and factories that would have otherwise gone to waste. By using pre-existing wool fibres, recycled wool blankets help to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

Another significant advantage of recycled wool blankets is that they are incredibly durable and long-lasting. Wool is naturally durable and insulating, making it the perfect material for blankets that can withstand years of use. Additionally, because recycled wool blankets are made from already-existing materials, they are less likely to shrink or lose their shape during washing. See our guide for washing blankets here.

Recycled wool blankets also come in a wide variety of colours and patterns. They have a unique and one-of-a-kind appearance that will add character to any room. And since they are made from pre-existing materials, they are often more affordable than new wool blankets. Overall, recycled wool blankets not only serve to reduce waste and preserve the environment, but they also provide warmth and comfort.
