Wool is an amazing fibre for clothing, which is why sheep wear it exclusively. It offers incredible weather protection throughout the year, with superior benefits to synthetic fibres or cotton. Wool keeps you warm even when it’s wet. It’s breathable, allowing your body to naturally regulate its temperature in the heat or cold. It has the ability to absorb moisture from your body, allowing it to evaporate into the air. This is called wicking. Wool also offers very high UV protection.
A sheep grows a new fleece every year. Once it has been harvested and scoured, we obtain a high quality, natural product which can be used in many different ways. A byproduct of the scouring process is the production of sheep grease, which also has many uses and beneficial properties.
Wool fibre is like a spring. If it gets bent, it will return to its original shape. This makes wool clothing wrinkle resistant and is the reason why woollen clothing is very durable. As a product for manufacturing quality textiles and furnishings, wool is unbeatable with its numerous beneficial properties.
