WOOL PELLET FERTILIZER: All-Canadian, natural product now available from local farms and businesses across the country. 

 

Wool pellet fertilizer, manufactured in Canada, using Canadian wool, is being sold by innovative farms and businesses looking to provide anecological soil amendment and positive alternative to chemical fertilizers. 

 

Part of a circular economy reducing waste and excess greenhouse gas emissions, pure wool pellets provide rich nutrients, enhance soil structure, retain moisture, repel bugs and slugs as well as providing a slow release nitrogen fertilizer. Using an otherwise wasted product, wool pellets reduce irrigation and water run-off and can support water infiltration in drought-prone areas. 

 

“The Canadian wool industry has been in crisis for decades with low prices and limited marketing options,” says Anna Hunter, chairperson of the Canadian Wool Collective and owner/operator of Long Way Homestead in Manitoba. “As a result, a significant portion of the national clip has been tossed – and with it the carbon sequestration benefits of wool. This is now beginning to change.” 

 

Several wool pellet producers are currently in operation from coast to coast. A listing is available at canadianwool.org for consumers looking to find a local source and wool producers wanting to connect with Canadian pellet mills. If you know of other pellet mills, please reach out to have them added to the national directory. 

 

“Working collaboratively with the wool pellet mill in your region allows farmers to not only ensure that wool is kept out of landfill but also to support local communities, local business, and local jobs,” says Jennifer Osborn, farmer at All Sorts Acres Farm in Ontario, founder of the Upper Canada Fibreshed, and owner/operator of EcoWool Canada. “The benefits for gardeners are also outstanding! Wool pellets offer a brilliant alternative to peat moss, which is currently under threat globally, recycling local biomass back into our soils and enriching the growth of our plants.” 

 

A sustainable resource, from local farms to your garden, never leaving the country, wool pellets are available both in small shops and online.
