Mongolian cattle, sheep, goats and camels are raised naturally, and spend most of their lives in open, unfenced pastures, making the wool organic. It goes without saying that the Nomadic herders of Mongolia do not practise mulesing.
Wool from Mongolia is considered to be amongst the highest quality wool in the world. The animals are able to yield superior quality wool fibres because of the harsh winter temperatures, at times -40 degrees.These animals yield some of the best quality natural wool fibres in the world.The animals graze in the vast steppes of Mongolia and are free from mulesing practices.
The wool is hand-combed by the herders. This will not only financially secure the herders, but the animals will also enjoy a breezier summer.
