Wool EC clothing is highly sought after by parents embracing an organic natural lifestyle. Of all fabrics, wool has the least environmental impact as it utilizes the least water and other inputs into growing the fibers, and when produced in a permaculture setting, the production of wool can even have a healing impact on the land.
Beyond wool’s eco-friendly bonafides, most ECing moms who choose wool love it for its properties. Wool dries quickly and stays warm even when it gets wet, and when wool is properly lanolized it is self-cleaning, which means you can use the clothing for longer periods between washing.
