Sheep’s fleece

I have been offered some bits of sheep fleece (the left over grubby bits not suitable for spinning). Can I use these in the garden as a form of soil conditioner or compost and, if so, how

    The wool pellets are used to keep slugs away, just bought a small bag for £5! You are lucky to have it for free, so definitely use it in your garden :smile:

    Yes definitely use it, there is a composted wool & bracken compost made under the name Dalefoot as an alternative peat free option. I have been trying it & it is a lovely product. Wool act as a slow release fertiliser that holds moisture.

    You could also hang bits up for the birds to use for nesting.
