* Required Fields



  • Prevents weed growth.
  • Growth-promoting -  creates excellent soil climate.
  • Will improve soil structure as it degrades.
  • Water-saving - Wool stores up to 33% of its weight in water which is slowly released.
  • Fertilizer - sheep wool contains important nutrients for the plant, such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
  • Slugs and Snails avoid sheep wool products. Wool fibres have very fine scales on them with tiny barbs which irritates the slugs preventing them going across the weed mat.
  • Pure natural product - sustainable and renewable.
  • Sheep wool does not have to be artificially produced. The producer is the sheep.
  • Can also be used in hanging baskets and tubs to stop the soil drying our as the wool attracts and locks in moisture into the soil.
  • Will last between 18-24 months.
  • 100% biodegradable.
  • Made in Austria.

  • Lay on the ground and cut with scissors or a knife to make planting holes.
  • Can be held down with garden pins or stones 'till the plants are established.
  • Can also be used for frost protection if wrapped around plant pots.
