Wool-It – literally, a pile of wool that you slide between your toes or slip into your socks – prevents blisters and helps with hot spot management.
This simple, light, and natural moisture-wicking remedy was developed by Katey Lane. After impulsively deciding to hike the Camino de Santiago, she realized she would need something to prevent blisters. Rather than carrying 4 weeks worth of sub-par and expensive stick on products, she decided to try using wool. Amazingly, she finished the journey – and with intact feet!
Wool-It is sourced form the South Island of New Zealand's Corriedale sheep. These sheep live in a temperate climate where they are out in grassy pastures year round, which produces a resilient wool free of dust, dirt and thistles.
