Advantages of American Wool
There are many advantages of using American wool in our products. First, it comes from family-owned and -operated ranches throughout the United States, like Pozzi Ranch, in Valley Ford, California. Keeping family ranches economically viable is an important part of why Sonoma Wool Company was created.
We believe in supporting local farmers, ranchers, and makers. Keeping the valuable dollar in local economies is important to keeping our communities thriving.
Sonoma Wool Company began at Pozzi Ranch, a sheep ranch in the coastal region of Northern California, where the average rainfall is over 40 inches per year.
Coarse-grade wool sheep thrive in this climate. Their coarse wool, with a 28 to 34 micron count, easily sheds the heavy rains of this region and keeps the sheep warm. The sheep with this type of wool are traditionally British breeds, including Dorset, North Country Cheviot, Romney, Suffolk, and Hampshire.
This coarse American wool has the benefit of being perfect for creating practical products for you and your home.
