GOTS Organic Wool
Wool is one of the widest used and most versatile of all the natural fibre family. Wool has evolved through nature to become one of the most durable, breathable all-weather protectors known to man. With each sheep producing a new fleece annually wool products tick the box for sustainability.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Havivank, part of the ENKEV group, is proud to be able to say that it now fully complies with the GOTS certification requirements, thus ensuring our customers that our GOTS Wool complies with strict environmental and social criteria.

Wool has the ability to absorb large amounts of moisture making it an ideal companion to skin. Thermally wool also performs very well, as a natural fibre, wool remains active allowing fibres to cool the body when hot and releasing heat when cold. A natural barrier to fire, wool makes an ideal filling fibre and a perfect addition to projects in a vast array of applications.
