The British wool industry is fighting back, according to the BBC (10.01.11). Exports of wool are on the way up partly because consumers are thinking more about what they buy and its carbon footprint, said Ian Hudson and James Laxton from Laxton's Specialist Yarns, featured by the BBC.
Like wool yarn, the wool felt we use is a 100% natural material. We have it made for us in Germany which is where the manufacturing expertise in producing 3mm thick wool felt has traditionally been.
Sadly that means we can't claim to be helping the British wool industry but last month Germany accounted for about 10% of our Macbook case sales and 6% of Kindle case sales.
At Case Closed we pack our products in minimal recycled packaging and offset by ten times the carbon we produce distributing our products to customers worldwide.
