Pure New Zealand wool is a 100% natural material. Farmed throughout the pristine countryside of New Zealand, the sheep grow a thick fleece of wool to protect themselves from New Zealand’s harsh winter. This wool is then harvested during spring so that the sheep does not have a full fleece during the long, hot summer. During autumn/fall the fleece grows back in readiness for the coming winter.
The wool is harvested by shearing. The wool is removed by using electronic clippers in much the same way as getting a haircut. Following shearing the animals return to the fields to continue grazing and raise their young.
No animals are harmed at any stage of the wool harvesting process.
