The Campaign for Wool
In general consumers purchase balls or skeins of WOOL for knitting, not knowing that this is not actually made from wool, and is often nylon or acrylic. Another generic term used for non-wool fibres. ⠀⠀
The properties of nylon and acrylic have no similarities or association with the natural performance benefits of a wool yarn. Wool is a breathing fibre that can keep your temperature regulated for warm or cold conditions; is odour resistant; does not burn; is good for skin health; and is a renewable and biodegradable fibre.
