Liquid wool

Liquid wool

There was an interesting interview on Farming Today this morning (at 1:51 into the programme for anyone interested) about using hydrolysis to turn wool into a liquid fertiliser for horticultural and agricultural use. The product under discussion is called Yaarn which is produced by Agri Sciences Biologicals and marketed as a bio stimulant. According to the interview it is currently manufactured in Turkey from waste wool from the carpet industry but there was a passing reference to using UK wool in the future.

Some may wonder why the monopoly that is the British Wool Marketing Board (aka British Wool) has not been doing this and developing other novel uses for wool for years. Answers on a postcard please to Wool House, Sidings Close, Bradford, BD2 1AZ.
