Why Choose Wool?

We love wonderful wool! Why? Because it looks beautiful, well yes but did you know wool has a series of superpowers that make it the most incredible natural fibre, suitable for more garment suggestions and sewing inspiration than possibly any other?

Wool has a unique naturally crimped 3D structure which attributes to some brilliant properties & makes it a great fabric to wear throughout all the seasons.

Naturally Breathable: This amazing 3D crimped structure promotes air circulation allowing air to pass through the fabric, allowing for circulation and ventilation for your skin to breathe, keeping you cool.

Shower Resistant: Sheep naturally produce a waxy substance called lanolin. As sheep live outdoors, this naturally occurring wax helps to protect sheep from the elements, naturally shedding water & keeping them dry. This same property is retained within the wool fibres when spun into yarn.

Moisture Absorbing: The moisture-retentive superpowers of wool! It’s hydrophilic core gives wool the ability to wick away moisture keeping you dry and comfortable – this possibly one of our favourite properties because you can stay fresh when wearing wool, from autumn right through to spring!

Naturally Odour Resistant: As the moisture is wicked away from your skin there is no build up of sweat and bacteria, thus reduces any odour! When you do feel the need to give your wool a freshen up, simply hang it out and let the natural breathable fibres do all the work, airing out the fabric. More time for sewing!

Stain Resistant: The naturally occurring lanolin (waxy substance) is not easily removed by washing, therefore adding an extra layer of stain resistance, as substances are not absorbed by the fibres.

Fire Resistant: Wool continues to amaze us with a natural ability to self extinguish flames when caught alight. Due to the high nitrogen and water content in wool, fire is suffocated as there is less oxygen to burn! Wool tends to smoulder rather than burn and only does so for a short time, so it won’t stick to your skin ~ a natural life saver!

Heat Insulating: Wool's 3D structure traps air to regulate body temperature. The millions of natural air pockets give a natural layer of insulation, perfect for keeping you warm during those chillier days!

Shape Retention: The amazing 3D structure of wool is essentially millions of tiny springs that allow the fibres to bounce back into shape. Wool has the ability to stretch to around 70% of its natural length and still spring back into its natural form. Wool retains its durability and appearance much longer than other materials, extending its longevity & thus the initial investment of wool will serve you better for longer whilst still looking amazing.

Sustainability: Not only will your woollen garments last longer than most other fibres, sheep grow a fleece of wool in just 1 year, giving a renewable source of wool fleeces year after year. When wool does get to the end of its life, it breaks down slowly fertilising the ground along the way & releasing nitrogen back into the nutrient cycle. Wool can completely degrade after 6 months in the ground, compared to synthetic fibres which can take 30-40 years to degrade.
