Merino wool has so many brilliant properties, uses and facts and we have listed some for your enlightenment.

Durable

A wool fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still have the power to recover and return to its natural shape, this reduces the need to replace garments and top quality wool products stay looking good for longer.

Easy Care

Wool is a very easy fibre to care for; it can be machine washed and tumble dried. It also naturally repels stains making it easy to clean off any spills on the wool carpet floor.

Multi-climatic

Wool reacts to changes in your body temperature keeping you warm when it's cold and cool when it's hot. This helps you sleep too you get 25% more deep regenerative sleep with wool duvets.

Natural Insulator

Wool can insulate the home providing and retaining warmth; reducing energy costs

Fire Retardant

Wool is naturally flame retardant due to its high water and nitrogen content. It has a higher ignition threshold than many other fibres, does not melt or drip and will produce less toxic and noxious fumes.

Biodegradable

When a wool product comes to the end of its life, it biodegrades, it can act as a fertilizer due to its high nitrogen content.

Breathable

Wool's natural structure allows it to absorb and release water vapour into the atmosphere and regulate body temperature. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture vapour without feeling damp to the touch. Wool products will manage their local environment and keep your room humidity at a comfortable level.

Natural and Renewable

Sheep live on grass, water, fresh air and sunshine. Wool is a fibre that is grown - not manmade. Every year a sheep produce a new fleece; making wool a renewable fibre source.

Safe

Wool has a naturally high UV protection. Wool absorbs nasty chemicals (VOC's) which makes the air you breathe purer.
