Naturally Sustainable Wool – good for you and the planet.

Our goal here in Donegal Yarns is to produce a high quality product without compromising our standards, creating a platform for future generations.

We are active members of The Woolmark Company and support The Campaign for Wool. A key focus on our strategy is to work closely within the whole supply chain, collaborating from ‘farm gate to fashion’, promoting sustainable wool.

Why Wool?

Wool is the original eco fibre. As well as creating high quality, durable, comfortable and beautiful products, wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable. No other fibre, natural or man-made, can match all of wool’s naturally inherent benefits.

100% Biodegradable – when wool is disposed of it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of months or years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.

Fire retardant – wool doesn’t catch fire easily, however, if it does, it burns slowly and self-extinguishes when the source of the flame is removed.

Naturally BreathableWool fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour and allow it to evaporate, making wool garments feel less clingy and more comfortable.

Multi climate – it keeps you warm when cold and cool when hot.

Easy carewoollen fibres have a natural protective layer which prevents stains from being absorbed.

Naturally odour resistantWool garments and textiles are naturally odour resistant due to the fibre’s unique properties and chemical structure.
