WOOL IS RESISTANT TO WATER.

  • Unlike human hair or animal hair, wool fibers are in fact hollow with a durable, flexible and water-repellent exterior. Structure of woolen fibers consists of small, overlapping parts like shingles on the roof. The core of each fiber absorbs up to 30% of its weight of water vapor without becoming wet. Meanwhile, the hard outer layer protects against external moisture from rain or snow.

WOOL REMOVES MOISTURE.

  • In extreme physical exertion, you will need a "breathing" garment, which means it must be able to absorb the sweat and release it into the air. Wool can easily absorb up to 30% of its weight without feeling moisture. It drives moisture away from the body, keeps the person "warm and dry". Wool acts as a "temperature controller", so it is possible to protect the body in cold and warm conditions. For this reason, sheep wool clothing is also used in desert regions of the world where tropical heat is during the day and on the contrary very cold nights. Sheep wool is simply universal for all-year use.

WOOL IS A GREAT ISOLANT.

Wool fibers are not perfectly smooth and straight. Wavy fibers help create small insulated airspaces that retain more heat. In a way, the wool works much like a glass fiber insulation inside the walls of the house.

These unique characteristics of the wool are suitable for the production of outdoor clothing. Explorers such as Ernest Shackleton, Edmund Hillary and Roald Amundsen used woolen clothes to protect them in difficult conditions during their journeys.

 

 

THE WOOL IS NATURALLY RESISTANT AGAINST THE SMELL

  • It is possible that you already have a garment experience that is made of synthetic fibre, such as polyester and polypropylene. Unfortunately, this outfit can be good and practical, but it retains natural human odors (impermeable, not breathing). On the contrary, sheep's wool is naturally antibacterial, thermoregulatory and breathable. It contains lanolin (sheep's wool fat) that helps keep the fabric hygienically clean. This combination has self-cleaning properties and therefore the wool does not smell. Freshness smells forever!

WOOL IS ANTIALERGENIC

  • It has long been known and verified that the sheep wool does not cause allergies, dusts and prevents bacteria from growing.
