🌱Knowing your wool is biodegradable

Caring for fine wool garments is like grooming. Superfine wool feels lovely and soft next to your skin and when minimally processed and spun has an increased tendency to pill, more than yarn made from a harsher, broader micron.  It also felts beautifully. The simplest solution to pilling is to use a high-quality fabric shaver to remove the pills.  The electric or battery Classic 50 fabric shaver is recommended. It’s like patting a loved companion!
