Wool is breathable and has a soft handle which makes it cosy and comfortable to wear. It is also very durable and versatile, perfect for making a variety of quality products which will last.
Here are some facts and reasons why we love it...
- wool is grown not made, therefore it is natural, sustainable and renewable; every year sheep grow a new fleece. Wool products also use less energy than man-made fibres during manufacture.
– when disposed of, natural wool fibre takes only a few years to decompose, and with a high nitrogen content, wool can even act as a fertilizer, therefore making it biodegradable.
– wool’s natural structure allows it to absorb and release water vapour into the atmosphere, making it very breathable and keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.
