Pathways of Wool

Wool is a natural product, and it follows a completely natural path that does not have any negative environmental impacts. Figure 8.11 shows the pathways of sheep's wool. In the whole process, a sheep only requires vegetables for food. The sheep digests the plant leaf/grass, turning the grass into simple nutrients that its body can absorb readily. This simple nutrient is converted into amino acids, polypeptides, and finally into alpha Keratin, which is the composition of wool. The whole process takes place through biological activities. As a result, during the wool generation process there is no release of toxic elements, gases, or products. Some biological products/byproducts are generated that are actually essential for the sheep. One such component is adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP). Therefore, the wool generation process is truly sustainable and it can run for an infinite time period without harming the environment.
