Woolchemy is an innovation ‘mother’ company, formed with one goal in mind: to transform an abundant base material [wool] into something more valuable, using sustainable, environmental and ethical processes. Their focus is finding new applications for wool in non-traditional markets through continual research and development, especially when it comes to healthcare products.
Led by two women founders, they created the neweZorb process, an eco-friendly wet treatment process that makes sheep wool ultra absorbent and super-hydrophilic. The output is still 100% wool, with an altered molecular structure to be moisture loving. neweZorb wool absorbs from 1500% – 2500% its weight in moisture, compared to 30% for conventional wool, while neweFlex is a thin wool composite textile so versatile it can be used in feminine hygiene, nappies, nursing pads, bed pads, pet pads and wound care products.https://woolchemy.com
