The benefits of wool

Wool is a breathable fibre that provides instant warmth unlike synthetic materials.

  • It regulates itself to individual body temperature and really is warm in winter and cool in summer.

  • Wool is naturally water-resistant, repelling moisture vapour through its fibres and making it resistant to rot, mould and mildew. 

  • Wool is absorbent and healthy. Wool fibres naturally draw moisture away from the body and can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without becoming clammy from perspiration. 

  • Wool’s unique structure means that it doesn't retain body odours.

  • Wool competes successfully with high tech manmade fibres in sports wear. Merino wool is generally accepted as the premium option for high performance base layer clothing.

  • Sustainable and renewable.

  • Durable. 

  • At the end of its life, wool is bio-degradable in soil.

  • Flame-retardant.

  • Naturally anti-allergenic. Wool doesn’t collect static which attracts dust and dirt. Wool quilts, mattress protectors and pillows are recommended for those who suffer from allergies, dust mite allergies, asthma and/or eczema.
