Woollen fibre is a small but amazing miracle of nature that can't be recreated with modern technology. Nature has certainly provided for sheep and our ancestors learned many generations ago how to harvest wool from these animals with care and process it for their own use. Today, wool has become indispensable for many households, bringing warmth and comfort to the whole family.
The dry warmth that wool creates brings relief to sore muscles as well as painful joints and spine. Kidney warming belts and woollen braces will warm up the affected area and help your body get better faster.
Sheep are protected by their woolly coats in all weathers. So it will protect us in the same way, even if it gets wet. Wool wicks the excess moisture away from the skin so you always feel nice and dry.
The structure of the woollen fibre and the lanolin which protects it at all times mean that bacteria and mites find it hard to breed. This makes wool a highly suitable material for children and allergy sufferers. It also means it's easy to care for wollen items, regular airing and shaking out will usually suffice. So we can wear clothes made of wool for several days, which is especially handy, for example, on a long hike.
At Woolville we are well aware that wool is definitely a fluffy miracle of nature as well as a great helper in everyday life. And as we are great supporters of natural materials, the majority of our goods are made of wool, a renewable material indeed.
One of the main advantages of this natural material is its ability to regulate temperature. Our grannies used to say that sheep's wool keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. And they were right, wool is really able to maintain the ideal temperature and protects both from excess heat and cold. Thanks to this, woollen clothing keeps us feeling warm and comfortable all year round without getting too hot, which means that wool is widely used in summer too.
Wool is used to make various kinds of clothing for newborns, children and adults, you will find slippers as well as winter boots lined with wool. It fills duvets and pillows, makes great blankets, seat cushions, baby footmuffs as well as braces and supports for sore muscles and painful joints.
Wool has endless uses and it is entirely up to the each of us to decide which form of this natural fibre will make our day. :)
