I don’t mean to keep beating the proverbial dead horse, but … 🙂


We can’t keep up our dependency on oil, I think everybody agrees with that now.  The great news is that we don’t need to use nearly as much oil as we do and still maintain a healthy luxurious lifestyle.   It turns out that non-oil based products are actually better for us anyway.

This info-graphic explains why we should use wool instead of oil to make textiles..

Laneve wool from Wools of New Zealand is truly sustainable and turned into beautiful carpets and textiles by the world’s most innovative brands whereas synthetic or man-made carpets come from oil.  Petroleum based products can be recycled using more energy but the oil is non-renewable.

The Wool Story…

Our sheep have an annual haircut which provides the very best, fit-for-purpose fibre grown especially for Laneve carpets and interior textiles.

Laneve wool is grown in New Zealand on Free-range farms naturally producing high quality wool from grass.
