Plans underway to improve boggy paths using Welsh wool

Share This Post

This week, the team visited the site where we will be trialling three different techniques of using welsh wool to improve boggy paths.

Over the past few weeks, the Made with wool team have been working with groups based in Brecon, the Lake District and the Isle of Skye to learn about their successful use of wool in public paths.
Wool is used in paths as it absorbs excess moisture and repairs the paths in a sustainable and natural way. The ancient technique of burying the wool on boggy land has been used to repair well used paths across the country but is still reasonably unknown.
