Our take on wool
Wool is a natural, durable and renewable material. It is naturally stain resistant and flame retardant - and it is a great insulator. The many benefits make wool an attractive material choice in IKEA products like rugs, upholstered furniture and wadding in mattresses.
There are also environmental benefits to consider. Wool has a smaller carbon footprint than many other textile fibres. This is partly because sheep can be raised on non-arable lands and rough terrains. Further, wool is biodegradable and takes relatively short time to break down.
IKEA has a long-term direction to move away from virgin fossil based materials towards more natural and sustainable materials. Wool is a good example of a sustainable material when sourced from farms where sheep are treated with respect and the land they graze on is managed responsibly.
