Wool is an excellent fertiliser, naturally high in nitrogen (average NPK 9-0-2) and carbon. It also contains potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, sulphur, and numerous trace elements.

Wool pellets are made from coarse unwashed sheep’s wool that is shredded and then pelletized for easy use. The pellets can be mixed into potting soil or spread over garden beds and slowly break down into the soil, releasing nutrients for up to six months.

Wool is highly absorbent, holding up to twenty times its weight in water. As the pellets get wet, they expand, creating spaces in the soil. As a result, wool works to increase the soil’s water storage capacity and to improve soil aeration.

A layer of wet, “puffed up” pellets also acts as a slug deterrent. They have a slight barnyard-y smell that disappears soon after application.

Wool Pellet Application

How much do you need? As a soil additive, mix 1/2 cup of pellets (approx. 50g) with 4 litres of soil. In garden beds, spread about 1kg of pellets over 20 to 25 square feet. One application is good for an entire growing season.

How longs does it keep? Stores indefinitely if kept cool and dry and out of reach of pets.
