Introduce Wool into your life: 3 Reasons

Supports Sound Sleep


Sheep wool is a fascinating natural temperature modulator. Our bodies have a specific thermal regulation system that keeps our body at 37°C/98.6°F.

Wool has this remarkable ability to stop us from getting too warm, and simultaneously keeping us within that sweet temperature spot. This is why you will see wool enthusiasts cosy up within their natural blankets all year round.

 Wool also stops you sweating when you sleep. It absorbs moisture, pulling it away from your body. This helps wool act as an anti dust mite agent, because the dry environment is not hospital for those pesky bugs. Also, if you have one, you can let go of a fungal spore fear, as wool takes care of that. 

Wool is a natural fire retardant, so you can sleep soundly in the knowledge that you’re free from nasty chemicals. Finally, you can sleep soundly knowing that your bedding is naturally sustainable.

Wool is Skin Safe

Wool has the natural ability to wick moisture, meaning it quickly moves sweat to the outer part of the fabric. Plus, it dries quickly, so your sweat doesn't saturate the fabric.

For this reason, wool is a hydrophilic material.

Wool can uptake one third of its own weight in water before it starts to feel wet to your skin. Experiencing wet skin over time leads to damaged areas, discomfort, and often pain. So this wick moisture ability creates both comfort and skin protection! 

Many fabrics rub and cause unpleasant friction, but the outer layer of fibre is a smooth fibrous protein that allows the small fibres to move nicely against each other. Avoiding that horrid rubbing you see on so many synthetic materials.

Skin friction is reduced, keeping you comfortable in wool clothes, bedding or footwear!

The Right Environmental Choice

The significant damaging effects of plastic and synthetics are of global concern. Switching to natural fibres can help reduce the environmental impacts of these.

Good quality wool products last longer, require washing less often, they are recyclable and biodegradable.

Continuous wear with wool products is highly recommended, they get better with time, unlike synthetic fabrics.

One third of microplastics in the ocean come from the clothing industry. 

Synthetic fibres can take several decades to decompose, but wool does it in a fraction of the time. Wool is made from an organically produced protein that nature has a strong mechanism to work with.

When you see your wool shed its fibres, you can be happy knowing that they break down naturally.
