    Organic stuff 12th Oct 17 at 3:25 PM
    My 1st grandson has come into the world and have parents devoted to organic produce - nappies, clothes, food (they´ve also become vegan...)


    This is a whole new experience for me so am looking for help identifying organic wools, materials etc so that I can make him toys and clothes that he will be allowed to use!!

    Slightly long winded, but if you google on organic wool, organic cotton etc you'll get lists of suppliers.

    Look into organic hemp and bamboo fabrics, they are better for the environment than cotton is.

    Wool surely would be fine?

    Not shearing a sheep is bad form it. There was a sheep that was found in Australia that had obviously gone walkies and not been sheared for years. The wool they removed was really heavy and would have been bad for its knees etc... also I!!!8217;m surprised the poor thing hadn!!!8217;t actually cooked due to the heat in summer.

    They only produce thick coats of wool because they've been bred to do so. Earlier breeds of sheep shed their wool naturally - some modern breeds have been created to do the same as shearing often costs more than the value of the fleece.

    We can only get wool if we keep (and then kill) sheep - not acceptable if you're a vegan.
