Use wool sponges to do the dishes, wash your face & body, or clean surfaces. Clean and durable, these sponges do not get gross or smelly and last long. Organic wool is naturally antimicrobial, antifungal, and fully compostable.
How to Wash: Rinse with warm water, squeeze out, and lay flat to dry. Use soap for stains. Please do NOT put them in the laundry machine, or they will warp. Sun is a natural sanitizer of wool. These sponges are made of wool and thus will shrink with initial use. Please DO NOT CUT THEM; they will shrink to the size of a regular sponge and get a bit more scrubby over time. How long do they last? Most people report between 6 months to a year.
Wool is sourced fromFerndale Farmsin Ferndale, CA. This wool comes from well-tended sheep raised in Northern CA, benefiting the landscape, climate, and local economy.

Climate Beneficial™ is verified by Fibershed (501c3 nonprofit), confirming that the fiber is grown on a farm or ranch operating under and actively implementing a Carbon Farm Plan. These plans are documents created between the farm or ranch and a third-party biologist, usually through a local Resource Conservation District (RCD) or Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office.
The plans identify and quantify on-farm practices that sequester carbon from the atmosphere, thus giving accurate data on climate change amelioration associated with verified fiber products. In Fall 2019, Ferndale Farms will begin to develop its Carbon Farm Plan with Fibershed. They have rotated their livestock as a part of their land stewardship practice for four generations and implement techniques such as growing cover crops and maintaining wildlife habitat. When farms are Climate Beneficial and Transitional, they develop their Carbon Farm Plan with a planner and implementing carbon farming practices. Full Circle Wool is founded on the concept that human material needs can benefit our natural world.
The fiber that supplies our wardrobes, bedding, furniture, kitchens, and art practices can support regenerative farming and a regenerative economy, allowing people and the planet to thrive. 10% of profits go back directly to the farms to help implement more carbon farming practices.
