American wool gardening pellets – your organic alternative to perlite.
Our wool pellets are sourced from scrap wool from Utah. For best results, I recommend mixing 5% wool pellets with 95% peat moss potting soil.
Our wool pellets hold up to 20% of their weight in water, allowing them to slowly release water when the plant needs it, which means less babysitting for you!
As the wool pellets absorb water, they expand allowing for optimal root growth. They will biodegrade over six months, but are nearly impossible to see after 2-3 months. As they decompose, the wool helps aerate the soil.
Made from scrap 100% raw USA wool that supports American ranchers and farmers. It is biodegradable, sustainable, and organic. And yes, these smell like wool! I have also read that wool pellets can help deter slugs and snails, but because I have a small container garden, I cannot report on this firsthand.
