Over the last year, I have watched and listened to the Vegan movement with interest, as one of the main aims of Mixter Maxter is to support farmers and their flocks. It’s always healthy for customers to ask questions about products they buy, how they are made and where they come from. On that note, I’d like to write about why we use lambswool in our core product range.
Having been brought up in a farming/veterinary background and living on a dairy farm, I see first-hand how farmers care for and support our ecosystem on a local level. The hardworking people who work in the agricultural sector are the guardians of our country and now, more than ever, is a time to support them.
Secondly, I see the benefits of the the material itself and natural lambswool and sheep’s wool has so many!
biodegradable – its good for our planet
Breathable – it keeps you warm but stops you from overheating
lightweight and soft – no more scratchy jumpers!
Hypoallergenic – It’s resistant to dust mites, so excellent for asthma suffers
Waterproof – it naturally repels water to keep you dry
