Dear WLH Community Member,
Back in 2005 when I began working as the General Manager of our great company, we used New Zealand raised wool that was then processed into batting in the USA for all of our wool products.
Since New Zealand truly is the best in the world when it comes to the wool industry, this setup resulted in great, high quality products for our customers. 👏
Then in 2008, something happened with imports that made the prices increase dramatically, and our company was forced to switch to USA raised wool.
The problem with this, however, is that USA raised sheep are not always treated as well as the sheep are in New Zealand. Not only is this sad and disappointing from an ethical standpoint, it also can result in a lower quality product. 😦
As you know, our company is committed to creating healthy, ethical, long-lasting, high quality products so you can enjoy and feel great about your purchases. With this standard in mind and now that global markets have shifted, we’ve decided to make the switch back to New Zealand raised wool that’s processed into batting here in the US.
We’re confident that this switch will offer you the best possible wool products, craftsmanship that will last even longer, and wool products you can feel really great about because you know the animals are treated well & raised ethically. 👍
As you know, we love and prefer to use American grown fibers as much as possible, but when it comes to wool, everyone that uses, works with, and loves wool knows that there’s truly nothing better than New Zealand wool. 😁
With that, we are thrilled to begin offering you even higher quality products that are more ethically sound at the same great prices we have been for years.
Here’s to happy sheep 🐑 and happier sleep 😴!
