Lehner Wool is the specialist for 100% virgin sheep's wool. Our great strength lies in our knowledge of the special properties of sheep's wool and the purely mechanical processing of this versatile natural product. We are driven by the vision of developing innovative solutions for all areas of life: sustainable, healthy and unique. Because the chemical structure of the wool fibre brings with it so many advantages from which we benefit in product development.
Since 1969, Lehner Wool has been all about sheep's wool, because we are fascinated by the unique raw material of sheep's wool, one of the most recycled and reuseable fibres in the world. Sustainable, renewable and compostable. The protection of humans and animals is the focus of our actions. We only use mulesing- and chlorine-free wool from controlled organic animal husbandry for our products. "Mulesing" is the term used to describe a gruesome practice of removing the skin around the tail of sheep - without any painkillers. No one needs it and certainly no sheep.

From raw wool to the finished product
Are you wondering how thread, felt, insulation rolls or carpets are actually made from the wool of numerous happy sheep? Here you can get a first glimpse behind the scenes of our wool halls. The wool for your wool product is delivered to us freshly washed from the laundry in bales and stored in the dye wool warehouse or our tent hall, whose roof supplies our production with energy through photovoltaics. Depending on the brand and product sponsor, the wool is processed in a wide variety of machines, resulting in the unique LEHNER wool products.
