Soap in a Wool Flannel
The wool gently exfoliates your skin and the wool around the soap helps prolong the life of the soap. it lasts longer! Felted Soap is also a lot easier to hold than a slippery bar of soap and the wool has antibacterial properties.
As the soap is made with sustainable palm oil you are helping to preserve the rainforests in Indonesia and Malaysia. Orangutan numbers in Borneo have more than halved between 1999 – 2015 as their habitat is destroyed due to the expansion of palm oil plantations.
Tumbler Dryer Balls
Wool tumble dryer balls reduce drying times by between 25-30% as they help improve air circulation. Other advantages are your washing laundry will be softer, have fewer wrinkles, plus they are eco-friendly, biodegradable and can be used many hundreds of times as an alternative to fabric softener and fabric cloths
Fabric softeners and cloths contain chemicals known as Quats that over time leave a coating on fabrics, making them less penetrable for water and cleaning products. This also traps in unwanted smells. Quats are known to be possible causes for asthma. Likewise the chemicals used in fabric softeners may also damage the fire resistant added to fabrics. Finally, it takes about five times more energy to produce liquid products. Liquid products requires more plastic packaging, are heavier to transport and therefore have a larger carbon footprint.
