Composting Wool packaging and Dog Hair

I started composting packing wool on the 24th August (see  Blog below)  and dogs hair on 21st September.  There is no evidence of the two layers of dog hair that were added to the bin. Some of the wool can still be found, mainly at the cooler edges of the bin . It would appear the actinomyces are growing on the remains  of the wool buried a little deeper in the composting material (see photo).  The bin will be turned once more and probally over wintered.  It would appear that both wool and dog hair will decompose  more quickly than the runner bean  stems which can be seen
