About Wood Wool
Wood wool is a product made of wood slivers cut from timber and is mainly used as a packaging material or for cooling pads in home evaporation systems. It is also used for stuffing fabric animals. Wood wool comes in six grades from super-fine to coarse, or ribbon wool. Available on eBay in various qualities and grades, the wool makes a great packaging material for those items that need extra protection before posting. Natural wooden wool also adapts well to the garden where it can be used as bedding protection and mulch. Used often in taxidermy, the stuffing helps to give a realistic look and feel. Wood wool coloured with dye has been a traditional filling in spring baskets for decades. Used as bedding for expectant animals, the wool is comfortable, warm, and easy to replenish. Next time you send a package, stuff the box with wood wool to keep your items safe from breakage and damage with this renewable and environmentally-friendly material.
