Why Wool? In addition to its warmth and durability, there are many unique and important characteristics that set Wool apart from other fibers. Wool is inherently flame retardant, and it won’t melt. Wool helps to regulate body temperature. Its thermostatic properties protect the body from both cold and heat.
Wool is able to absorb humidity deep within the fiber, a feature that helps to regulate and absorb moisture on the skin’s surface. Wool is a natural insulator. Its natural crimp and elasticity gives woolen bedding the ability to store air and create a perfect insulation layer which helps the body maintain its ideal temperature.
