Wool or recycled polyester?

Choosing materials for soft toys can be a challenge, especially when it comes to finding a durable option. Two common options are recycled polyester wadding and wool from sheep . Both are good materials with different properties

Recycled polyester

Recycled polyester wadding is made from old plastic bottles. It is a popular material for soft toys because it is easy to wash and dries quickly. The material is recycled and thus reduces the need to produce new plastic bottles, which in turn reduces the burden on the environment. This is also a good vegan option.


Wool from Swedish sheep is a popular natural material. Wool is durable, dirt-repellent, flame-resistant and has insulating properties that make it comfortable to play with in different climates. Wool is also biodegradable and recyclable.



Both recycled polyester wadding and wool from Swedish sheep have their advantages. Regardless of your preferences, you can now choose for yourself whether you want your Watoto doll filled with recycled polyester or with wool from Swedish sheep.
