We are very excited to offer these wool sponges made locally by Full Circle Wool.
Use wool sponges to do the dishes, to wash your face & body, or to clean surfaces. Clean and durable, these sponges do not get gross or smelly and last for a long time. Because wool is naturally antimicrobial and antifungal, they do not harbor molds and bacterias. When you're done with them, they are compostable.
How to Wash: Rinse with warm water, squeeze out, and lay flat to dry. Use soap for stains. You can put them in the dishwasher but NOT the laundry machine. Sun is a natural sanitizer of wool. These sponges are made of wool and thus will shrink with initial use. Please DO NOT CUT THEM, they will shrink down to the size of a regular sponge, and get a bit more scrubby over time.
How long do they last: When well taken care of, they can last for about a year, way longer than your typical dish sponge.
Full Circle Wool is a brand focused on demonstrating the uses of Climate Beneficial wool, and closing the circle of soil-to-soil products. From the ground in Marin, to the grass, to the sheep, to the mills and makers, to the consumer, to the compost and back into the ground.
This wool comes from well-tended sheeps raised in Northern CA, benefiting the landscape, climate, and local economy. Dedicated to transparency, you can find out more about the ranchers and their animals online.
Full Circle Wool is based in Potter Valley, CA.
Why are we supporting these wool products?
Healthy: it's just wool, washed and carded with the most minimal processing possible. No chlorine, no sulfuric acid, no resins, no dyes. There are some
trace bits of hay/plant matter. They won’t bother you a bit.
Cycle: 10% goes to fund carbon farming plans for more Fibershed members, thereby continuing efforts to grow carbon farming practices and develop demand for regenerative grazing & products that support a healthy environment!
What is carbon farming?
A suite of farming practices designed to sequester more CO2 out of the atmosphere and sequester it into the ground (where it belongs), reversing climate change and stewarding landscapes. Learn more about regenerative agriculture and managed grazing.
