Properties of sheep wool

Properties of sheep wool


  • Wool is a natural protein fiber in sheep skin, so it is a 100% natural material.


  • The sheep from which we obtain and subsequently process the sheep's wool are kept all over the world. Sheep wool, as a material, can therefore be understood as a natural renewable resource.


  • At the end of the material life, the sheep's wool returns to the soil where it naturally decomposes. At this stage, valuable nutrients are released into the country. Natural sheep wool has been decomposing for a very short time, while most synthetic materials have lasted for years.

Properties of sheep wool


  • Sheep wool is naturally safe. Verified that it does not cause allergies and does not support bacterial growth, therefore it is antibacterial and also suitable for strong allergy sufferers and people with sensitive skin. The sheep fleece has the ability to naturally reduce dust or, in general, not to impregnate dust in the vicinity. Separate fibers capture dust, but immediately discharges it automatically in the surface layers. Due to the high water and nitrogen content, the wool slows down the combustion, will not melt, but will burn down (dust) when burning. A great advantage is the high level of UV protection, which is much higher than most synthetic fibers or cotton.






  • Sheep wool is very flexible. Separately one woolen fiber can bend more than 20,000 times without breaking. Its elasticity and high resistance to sheep wool clothing or products is resistant to wear, abrasion and tearing.
