From our friends at Echoview Fiber Mill:
Set of 2 wool dish sponges, for gentle, natural dish cleaning.
Wool Dish Sponges are a natural & compostable alternative to synthetic dish sponges. Use them the same way you would use a normal dish sponge - lather, scrub, rinse, & repeat. Layout to dry between uses. When you first start using the wool sponge it will naturally felt up into a smaller size and shape, but it will not shrink indefinitely.
Wool is naturally antimicrobial, and will not shed microplastics. Replace your wool sponge when necessary by composting it, if possible.
While our wool sponges do not come with an additional loofah, we recommend paring your wool sponge with a loofah, pot scrubbing brush, or copper scouring pad as a way to get a good scouring action when you clean as part of your zero-waste cleaning routine.

While our process begins with fibers, the fibers we use begin with a relationship between animals and farmers. These hardworking Americans go against the grain and follow the ancient tradition of carefully raising and tending animals that grow this renewable resource on their backs. The farmers do so out of a love of animals, a dedication to the environment, and in hope that there are still people out there who want to say "no" to an acrylic sweater in favor of something natural. We've been working with them for years processing fiber for them, and now offer to buy fiber from them in hopes that they will keep tending their adorable herds of fluff, and let us turn the fruits of their labor into something brand new.
Some of our fiber starts on our own farm - shorn once per year is Echoview Farm's own herd of alpacas and mohair goats (we also keep bees and grow dye plants.) The careful keeping of these creatures and plants gives us a deeper respect for the tireless farmers who carry their bags of fiber through our doors.
