WOOL IS WATER RESISTANT.

  • 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 a roof. The core of each fiber absorbs up to 30% of its weight of water 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 "breathable" garment, which means it must be able to absorb sweat and evaporate it into the air. Wool can easily absorb up to 30% of its weight without feeling damp. It wicks moisture away from the body, keeping 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 with intense heat during the day as well as very cold nights. Sheep wool is simply universal for all-year use.

WOOL IS A GREAT INSULATOR.

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 a house.

These unique characteristics of 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.

 

 

WOOL IS NATURALLY ODOR RESISTANT

  • 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 breathable). 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 forever!

WOOL IS HYPOALERGENIC

  • It has long been known and verified that sheep wool does not cause allergies, nor collect dust and prevents bacteria from growing.
