Compostable Eco-Friendly Wool Sponges (Set of 2)
A Climate Beneficial™ wool project. Clean and durable wool sponges can be used to wash your face & body, do the dishes, or clean surfaces. Because wool is naturally antimicrobial and antifungal, they do not get smelly and are easy to clean. These sponges last a LONG time and when you’re done with them, they are compostable. (Comes in a pack of 2 sponges).
How to Wash: Rinse with warm water, squeeze out, stretch and lay flat to dry. Use soap for stains. Sun is a natural sanitizer of wool. The sponges will shrink with initial use. Please DO NOT cut them, they will shrink down to the size of a regular sponge, and get a bit more scrubby.
The wool is sourced from Stemple Creek Ranch and Jensen Ranch in Tomales, CA. It comes from well-tended sheep which benefit the landscape, climate, and local economy. You can find out more about the ranchers, Loren & Jim, and their animals on their Instagram @stemplecreek!
What it means to be Full Circle Wool:
Healthy: it's just wool, washed and carded with the most minimal processing possible. No chlorine, no sulfuric acid, no resins, no dyes. There are some trace bits of hay/plant matter. They won’t bother you a bit.
Cycle: 10% goes to fund carbon farming plans for more Fibershed members, thereby continuing efforts to grow carbon farming practices and develop demand for regenerative grazing & products that support a healthy environment.
What is carbon farming? A suite of farming practices designed to sequester more CO2 out of the atmosphere and sequester it into the ground (where it belongs), reversing climate change and stewarding landscapes.
The ALMANAC is a private Lady Farmer Community, created exclusively for members.
Inside The ALMANAC, your gift recipient will join a growing community of people who are seeking a slower, more sustainable lifestyle, guided by simplicity, beauty, and connection with the natural world. Hosted by Lady Farmer and led by the rhythms of the seasons, this is a space for us to come together in an exploration of the life-changing paradigm shift of slowing down. Here they will find workshops, articles, activities, recipes, essays, music, and much more on topics such as sustainable food, clothing, the arts of making, and the power of our daily consumer choices. They will join in on member-exclusive events such as themed virtual monthly gatherings and quarterly book club meetings, where they can connect, share with and learn from fellow ALMANAC members on their slow living journey.
