Happy Wool Week!

 At Petra Karthaus we have, from the alluring and unique boiled wool Geiger jackets, to the colourful and vibrant wool tops from Aldo Martins, and the chic designs from Garella and Bogner. Whichever you choose, you are sure to look elegant and make a smart decision!


WHY WOOL?

NATURAL: Wool is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep, and is thus one hundred percent natural, not man-made. Since the Stone Age, it has been appreciated as one of the most effective forms of all-weather protection known to man, and science has yet to produce a fibre which matches its unique properties.

RENEWABLE: As long as there is grass to graze on, every year sheep will produce a new fleece; making wool a renewable fibre source. Woolgrowers actively work to safeguard the environment and improve efficiency, endeavouring to make the wool industry sustainable for future generations.

BIODEGRADABLE: At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil, where it decomposes, releasing valuable nutrients into the ground. When a natural wool fibre is disposed of in soil, it takes a very short time to break down, whereas most synthetics are extremely slow to degrade.
