Wool

Wool is a natural, renewable, biodegradable fibre that has many uses. Most breeds – or types – of sheep produce wool naturally and need to be shorn – or have their wool trimmed – by an expert shearer at least once a year.

The Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers grades and markets most of the wool in Canada. The remaining is marketed by the sheep farmers themselves in a variety for forms – as raw fleece, roving, and yarns to name a few.
