Wollen Deken Quilt Tibetan
Ecologically produced cotton has been a common concept for many years, but ecological wool has been a rarity. The reason is that insects have been a challenge with animals in wool production and until today it has been inconceivable to produce wool without any pesticides. A group of farmers in Bank Peninsula, New Zeeland, decided to address the difficulties of Eco sheep breeding. They have developed a process where they only treat the sheep with pesticide once, instead of repeatedly as had been practiced before. They give this treatment when the sheep is newborn which leads to no or negligible amounts of pesticides in the finished wool as it grows. Additionally no chemicals are allowed to be used in the crops or in the food that the sheep eats and no antibiotic is used during the breading process.
A special washing method for the wool has been developed to again save the environment as much as possible. Finally, as a control over the entire process, an independent an accredited laboratory test approves each consignment of wool.
