Understand the benefits of using wool including, its comfort properties, durability and ease of care with our information and guidelines. Being a natural fibre, wool has many excellent properties:


Comfortable
Wool is comfortable, as it is soft and breathable. Thanks to its insulating properties and ability to absorb moisture, wool is suitable for both cold and hot climates.


Hard wearing
Woollen textile is capable of withstanding a high degree of wear and has very little tendency to crease. Wool ages with grace, due to its excellent abrasion resistance and high elasticity.


Dirt repellent
Wool resists dirt to a greater extent than other types of fibres. Wool has a water-repelling surface and permits spills to be wiped off before permanent staining occurs.


Flame retardant
Wool is inherently flame retardant as its ignition temperature is very high. It neither drips nor melts, but chars. If a glowing ember from a match or cigarette is dropped on it, there will only be a singed mark, which can typically be brushed off.


Antimicrobial properties

Woollen fibres are naturally water and soil resistant, with a surface layer that is less attractive for microbes. Wool is known to have antimicrobial properties which inhibit the growth of different kinds of microorganisms such us mould, mildew, bacteria and virus. It is important to keep wool dry as water plays a key role in the wool fibre’s relationship with microbes.
