EPISODE 4: A SHEER LOVE FOR WOOL
A Sheer Love for Wool
We had the pleasure of catching with the incredible Logan Williams.
His passion for inventing and pioneering innovative wool products is contagious.
Having begun his wool journey with ethical wool supplier New Zealand Merino, he has gone on to co-start the company Shear Edge whose aim is to use the power of natural materials to revolutionise industries relying on synthetics. Like Bremworth, Shear Edge uses wool fibre to innovate and make a change. They have produced over 80 different products using the power of wool including the world’s first woollen kayak, in collaboration with Torpedo 7.
The Wonders of Wool
Logan is really drawn to wool as a fibre of choice to innovate with, due to it being made of naturally strong keratin protein as well as having a myriad of other inherent properties.
Using New Zealand sourced wool to create an alternative to fibre glass is an example of the kind of opportunities Logan explores. Being able to develop alternative products that utilise a natural fibre connected to the beautiful land of Aotearoa is hugely important to Logan.
