What is Full Merino Woven Wool?
Merino lambs are sheared, and then the wool is needled onto a fabric backing. The wool quality, length, and density is more consistent than Merino wool on a natural hide. The longevity of Woven Wool is superior to Merino Wool on a hide. Generally, the hide is what becomes compromised after it encounters dampness or heat.
Woven Wool contains no hide. Therefore, sheep are not harmed in the making of this pad.
With Woven Wool, machine washing is simple.
