Benefits of high-quality Wool:
Before written history humankind was using wool to make life more comfortable. For many years scientists have tried to make a synthetic product with all of the qualities of wool and they have yet to succeed. The simple truth is, nothing compares with the comfort, resilience, wear-ability, versatility, and health benefits of pure natural wool. Wool is a:
- Natural Flame Retardant extinguishing itself when touched to a flame.
- Hypoallergenic, perfect for people sensitive to chemically produced synthetics.
- Natural Dust Mite Repellent. Wool evaporates moisture quickly and is inhospitable to dust mites. This is good news for children and adults with allergies and asthma.
- Supporting and Soothing Material. Those who suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis and rheumatism find that wool supports them with cushioned softness. Wool’s springiness relieves pressure points and muscle aches, which is why hospitals have used wool to enhance their patient’s comfort for years.
- Temperature Controlling Material. Wool is warm in cool weather, cool when it’s warm. Its fibers form pockets of air which insulate you naturally. You’ll stay dry with wool and won’t feel damp or chilled because wool wicks moisture away from your body.
