Sheep Story – The life cycle of wool textiles


Wool textiles and carpets are essentially made from grass.  This short film tells the story of how wool, because it contains nitrogen and sulphur, can be returned to the soil where it is an ideal plant food.  Although told with humor by sheep, the story is real.   Wool carpets are being used now to transform barren land into fertile forestry.

Sit back and enjoy “WOOL STORY”

The complete life cycle story of wool as told by little animated sheep.

Sheep Story was made for fun all shot on an iPhone and edited on an iPad.  Even the music is made using garage band.

The story of New Zealand wool being sustainable is true.  The vast numbers of white sheep in New Zealand means it is available in economic batches and is processed efficiently.  Sheep eat grass and grow a new fleece of wool every year.  The wool is a carbon sink, and also contains trace elements that are essential for healthy soil.  Real life experiments have proven that recycled wool significantly increases plant growth..

Purple sheep are rare, and special.  The purple sheep are the innovative ones…  I hope you enjoy the film…
