Rhön project

A rare breed right on our doorstep

Nothing is more familiar to us than the Rhön sheep’s wool, which we source and process directly from our own neighbourhood. To ensure that this continues, hessnatur is committed to protecting the endangered species from extinction. By using this unique wool for our collections, we are contributing towards the preservation of sustainable farming methods. Since the 1980s, the Rhön region, which is home to many endangered animal and plant species, has stood under the protection of UNESCO, which declared the area a Biosphere Reserve. This has enabled the Rhön sheep population to recover, thereby ensuring its continued survival.
