Woolcool is made of 100% sheep’s wool, a renewable resource that is biodegradable, sustainable, natural and compostable.
Woolpack Australia an Australian firm reduce oil-based packaging by use of an innovative product where the thermal insulation component is waste wool. Woolcool is made of 100% sheep’s wool, a renewable resource that is biodegradable, sustainable, natural and compostable. The ‘waste’ wool they use cannot be used in fashion or in textiles/carpets because it is too coarse, does not produce a comfortable garment and won’t absorb dye. This wool has been used for housing insulation products and is now in innovative packaging solution that out performs other options currently on the market for transporting temperature sensitive goods. Wool fibres are hygroscopic, which means they absorb and release moisture, a natural thermostat that maintains stable temperatures. Their complex structure and natural properties mean that they cope with extremes of cold and heat. Company had cleverly harnessed the smart fibre properties for Woolcool by felting and sealing pure wool in breathable film to create simply ingenious insulation for our food delivery boxes and pouches Woolcool is an environmentally-friendly product transforming supply chains and is a game changer in high performance packaging options for many different industries (e.g. food, beverage, pharmaceutical). Woolcool cooperated with global wool mills to ensure 25% minimum Australian waste wool content is included in each shipment.
