The Benefits of Wool
Durable and Long Lasting
Wool is like a spring, it has natural crimp that allows it to return to its natural shape. Its complex coiled structure gives it great resilience against becoming flat and hard.
Wool is well-known to be strong and resilient. Wool fiber can be bent without breaking and still have the power to recover.
Naturally Flame Retardant
The high nitrogen and water content make wool a naturally fire retardant fiber which is hard to ignite. Wool does not melt, drip or emit fumes – the major cause of death in fire and also the major issue for restricting access by fire officers during incidents.
New Wool is Hypoallergenic
Wool is resistant to bacteria, mold and mildew which can trigger allergic reactions . Wool also has microscopic pores that respond effectively to changes in humidity making it unfavourable for the growth and breeding of the house dust mite whose allergens are one of the triggers for asthma attacks.
