Wool is one hundred percent natural, not man-made. Since the Stone Age, it has been appreciated as one of the most effective forms of all-weather protection known to man, and science is yet to produce a fibre which matches its unique properties. It's a renewable source, each year a sheep will grow a fleece and shearing helps keep sheep healthy.
It is biodegradable and a natural insulator. Wool is a hygroscopic fibre. it absorbs and releases water vapour. Wool fibres are crimped, and when tightly packed together, form millions of tiny pockets of air. This unique structure allows it to absorb and release moisture—either in the atmosphere or perspiration from the wearer—without compromising its thermal efficiency. Wool has a large capacity to absorb moisture vapour (up to 30 per cent of its own weight) next to the skin, making it extremely breathable.
Wool is naturally safe. It is not known to cause allergies and does not promote the growth of bacteria. Finally, wool also has a naturally high level of UV protection, which is much higher than most synthetics and cotton.
