We use wool as mulch, but carefully.   It binds up
mowers and some power equipment.  Also, it does
not decompose very fast and that has to be allowed
for.  I often use it in my strawberry trenches as
a long term nutrient source.  We have shetlands and their
wool blends looks interesting as part of a edible landscape.

all the best, jeff owens
