BASEL - A new research paper published by the Switzerland-based MDPI claims that the decomposition of merino wool products in aquatic environments is a slow process due to both the properties of the wool’s structural protein and the presence of specific properties of the marine environment, which result in slow yet occurring decomposition rates.

The study also reports that the decomposition process of the tested wool began with the loss of colour and swelling of the microfibres and that samples did not exhibit relevant eco-toxicological effects during the exposure period.
