Wool Pellets

Wool for your garden?

Yes - wool pellets! 100% raw, natural sheep wool, sourced from small local farms. Shepherds have long used the waste wool from their sheep to improve the soil, and now you can too!

  • Breaks down quickly to deliver nutrients that help plants thrive
  • Deters pests when used as a mulch
  • Improves water retention for less watering and lower water bills

  • Moisture retention

    Wool holds up to 20 times its weight in moisture, slowly releasing it back into the soil and reducing the need for watering = Lower water bills

  • Improved oxygen levels

    As the pellets break down and expand, they provide aeration to the soil. This improves root growth and promotes healthier soil.

  • Natural fertilizer

    High in nitrogen, carbon, and other key nutrients, the pellets slowly release these back to the soil as they break down. Healthy sheep = healthy fleece = healthy soil

  • Renewable alternative to peat moss

    Peat moss is a common additive to soil, providing moisture retention and a healthy medium for plants. But it's a non-renewable resource, and harvesting it releases carbon dioxide. By replacing peat moss with wool pellets, you have all of the benefits and none of the environmental costs.

  • Pest repellent

    As the pellets break down, the scaly fibers are exposed, deterring pests like slugs, snails, and cutworms from crawling over them to get to tender new growth. Apply them as a thick barrier around seedlings, annuals, and tender perennials for added protection.

  • Diverting waste from landfills

    Until recently, much of the waste wool produced every year was buried on the farm, burned, or taken to the dump. By pelletizing the waste wool, we divert it from the waste stream and put it back to use in the soil.

  • For garden beds...

    Mix pellets in with existing soil at approximately 5% volume before planting, or sprinkle pellets into furroughs as you plant your seeds or starts.

  • For outdoor pots...

    Mix pellets in with potting soil at approximately 2% volume before planting. Additionally, top-dress pots (a little goes a long way) to keep soil cool and moist.

  • Top-dress and mulch...

    Garden beds, existing plantings, or pots by sprinkling a small amount around the base of the plant. Pellets grow when wet so use sparingly.
