The wondrous properties of wool

Not everyone knows that wool has so many wonderful properties making it one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly natural fibres on the planet. Other than being beautifully warm, it confers many benefits as follows:


  • Wool improves indoor air quality but entrapping oxygen.

  • Wool is naturally fire resistant and can be utilised as a fire retardant.

  • Wool is naturally odour resistant because it inhibits the proliferation of nasty microorganisms (you wont get smelly feet when wearing wool socks).

  • Wool is biodegradable - as a natural fibre, it will degrade naturally in the soil.

  • Wool lasts longer - as a durable fibre, wool will withstand the test of time.

  • Wool forms part of the natural carbon cycle

  • Wool is renewable unlike nonrenewable fibres derived from limited supplies of fossil fuels such as oil.

  • Wool is 100% natural as it grows on sheep.


Selecting Welsh wool locally also keeps the carbon footprint as low as possible, and benefits local farmers too.
