We're in love with sheep's wool. It’s a naturally brilliant product that redefines packaging as you know it. From start to finish, the process is environmentally friendly. You can learn more about our process here

Better Packaging For Better Businesses

We started in 2022 with a vision to replace plastic and paper packaging from the mass market. Plastic is gross, and even recycling it uses energy and causes pollution. The energy that goes into recycled paper packaging isn’t that environmentally friendly either. Nor are the lorries that transport it across the country.

Organic & Reusable

We’re not saying that our process doesn’t require energy - it does. But we’re providing you with a product that we’ve produced naturally and that every end user can either reuse, recycle at home or with us, or dispose of in the knowledge that it will totally biodegrade. 

We only use British wool. Why? Because we want to support our farmers. They feed us and they care for our countryside (literally and metaphorically), so it’s only fair that we do everything we can do to support the people that provide for us.

Our Ranges

Sustainability, Our Process

The first bit is easy. Sheep across Britain get too fluffy and they are sheared. All the wool is collected by The British Wool Board and then taken to market. 

We’ll skip the bit about the trading process, but once we have purchased the wool in its raw ‘greasy’ form (still with vegetable matter in it) it gets washed (or scoured). 

The washing process is as environmentally friendly as it can be. The water is recycled and pumped straight back to the sewage plant to be cleaned. All of the vegetable matter that is removed from the process is put back onto the land as fertiliser. 

Once the wool is washed, it then gets turned into the packaging for us. Once again, this process limits waste as much as possible. Any smaller bits of wool that fall out of the process are collected up and are given away to farmers as animal bedding. 

At every stage of the process, waste is limited and by-products are then positively reused and repurposed. It’s good from start to finish.

Wool For Every Need


Frequently Asked Questions

There is so much you can do with the wool once it has reached you as the end user. Here are some of our favourite things to do.

What makes WoolShip packaging different?

WoolShip provides an alternative packaging solution for the mass market. We are the sustainable, eco-friendly, reusable and completely biodegradable alternative to nasty plastic packaging, that supports our British farmers. 

What should I do with the WoolShip packaging when I am done with it?

1. Reuse it as packaging. Keep it and use it the next time you need to send something. 

2. Reuse it in the garden. 

a. It’s a fantastic natural slug deterrent (the wool has micro-barbs on it, making it uncomfortable for slugs to slide across it). 

b. It’s a brilliant natural fertiliser. Either put it in the soil (whole or broken up) or put it in the compost. It breaks down naturally with oodles of great nutrients for your plants. 

c. Use it as a weed preventer. Put it around the base of your plants or flower beds to prevent weed growth (it doesn’t last forever but it does biodegrade.) 

d. Use it as a basket liner. Because it’s naturally water repellant, it’s great for lining beds, baskets and pots. 

e. Compost it with everything else. 

f. Use it as insulation. Either in the home or for your pets.

g. Use it as pet bedding. It’s great for your chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs or any other small animal. It could be used in your dog beds, as long as it’s used as an internal material. 

h. Felt it: you can reuse if you’re particularly crafty. 

3. Make it circular (returns)

a. If you would rather send it straight back to us, you can. We’ll use it again and put it straight back into the process. 

Where do you source the wool from?

The wool we use comes from British farmers across mainland Great Britain. You’ll never find imported wool in our products. If you’re committed to buying local and need significant quantities, we could also look to source from regions through the British Wool traceability scheme. 

What can I use WoolShip packaging for?

Anything. You can use WoolShip packaging as an alternative to your usual packaging to keep your items safe whilst it is being shipped. It is a great alternative to bubble wrap, packaging peanuts and polystyrene. 

Does the wool smell?

It has a faint odour, but we think the wool smells lovely. When the wool is first collected it is greasy but through the washing process, it becomes soft with none of the original farm smells. 

What sizes can we provide?

If you have specific needs, don’t be too shy to ask, since we can be very flexible. We can provide the following formats:

Width: Any pre-cut widths between a minimum of 25cm and a maximum of 198cm. Anything in between is possible.

Length: Minimum length is 25cm, and the maximum length is unlimited. 

Thickness: We’re currently supplying 500gsm which is relatively thin, but we can produce 800gsm or 1000gsm for thicker wool.

With bespoke sizing requests, we can supply in either pads or rolls, depending on the length or your preference.
