About the wool pellets

These pellets are made here on our family farm, from nothing but 100% natural native British sheep wool. The wool is first heat sterilised and the compressed in to these powerful little wool pellets. 

Why use wool pellets?

These pellets have a variety of benefits for your garden

Retain Moisture in your soil

These little pellets can hold up to 10 x their weight in water and release it slowly when conditions turn drier. This reduces the frequency you need to water your plants. As part of this process they create little pockets of air in your soil, which helps root growth.

Slow release fertiliser

These wool pellets slowly release Nitrogen and Potassium in to your soil to encourage healthy growth.

Slug Repellent

When used around the base of plants, they felt together to form a mat that deters slugs and snails. This is because the wool is made of tiny abrasive fibres that irritate the slug's foot.

How to use the wool pellets

For water retention and fertiliser:

Mix 100g of pellets with 4 litres of soil for potted plants. 

For flower beds, mix 1kg over 2.5m2

For Slug Repellent:

Place in a 10cm ring around the base of the plant to be protected. Water lightly, this will felt together to form a barrier, this should last several weeks.

Environmentally friendly

These wool pellets are peat-free, have no nasty chemicals or metaldehyde.

The look and smell:

When you first open this compostible bag you will notice a slight sheepy smell to the pellets, this comes from the year round grass pasture they feed on and the natural lanolin in the fleece.

These wool pellets are a warm cream or grey colour as they are made from sheep which in a range of wonderful colours.

The shearing:

All shearing is done by hand by a professional shearer on our own family farm, as this minimises the stress to the sheep. It is very important to shear sheep to prevent illness.

The funny thing about Moorit Sheep

The funny thing about Moorit (brown) sheep is that on our farm, at least they stick together in a group. Even if they are in a larger flock of sheep, when you need to move them or there is any danger, the Moorits will always be together.
