Wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable. Wool isolates warmth, sheep are comfortable in very cold conditions. Wool is also healthy, breathable and controls humidity.
Wool keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Wool has safety benefits too: it is more flame retardant and gives significantly less smoke. Mattress Wool is our entry-level wool product and a mixture of several wool harvests. Wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable.
Wool is different to other fibres because of its chemical structure. This chemical structure influences its texture, elasticity, staple and crimp formation. Wool is a protein fibre, composed of more than 20 amino acids. These amino acids form protein polymers. Wool also contains small amounts of fat, calcium and sodium.
Types of Wool Yarn.
There are two types of wool yarn – woollens and worsteds.
Woollens is a general term describing various fabrics woven from woollen yarn that is spun from the shorter wool fibres. These shorter fibres are not combed to lie flat as in the worsted yarn. This results in soft surface textures and finishes and the weave of individual yarns does not show as clearly as in worsted fabrics.
Worsted is a general term for fabrics woven from worsted yarns that contain longer fibres spun from combed wool. Worsted wool refers to tightly woven, smooth, clear finished goods in a variety of twill and other stronger weaves.
We produce several different types of wool and blends, each with their own quality and feel, like Dutch & Texel wool, lambswool, recycled wool, GOTS wool and more.
