Wool is a protein fiber very similar to human hair, and performs well ecologically. It is 100% biodegradable and regenerates itself after use, so that is doesn't have to be washed very often. It is a 'breathing' fiber, that will never give you the feeling of being locked up. In addition it has good isolating and moisture absorbing properties. Some of the fabrics presented here are made from organic wool and are GOTS certified. GOTS-certified organic wool is still rare, the supply on the market is growing but still small. That's why all the woolen fabrics here are made in GOTS-certified factories, even though the wool itself is not always certified as such.
Wool is a 'breathing' fiber that will never give you the feeling of being locked up. It has good isolating properties, and is very performing when it comes to regulating the body temperature. Wool can absorb up to one third of its own weight of moisture before it starts to feel wet. By absorbing moisture, wool reduces the amount of sweat on the body, thus also reducing the possibility of body odours.
People are not allergic to wool but it is true that wool, due to its structure, may itch. This depends on the fineness of the fiber.
This wool comes from several countries: South Africa, South America, Australia, and European countries. It was spun, woven dyed blue and finished in Europe. Please note that the big wool producing countries all have a set of animal welfare laws which wool growers are bound to uphold.
Wool is a natural fiber and 100% biodegradable, can be washed less frequently and on lower temperatures thus saving energy and water. In addition wool garments often have longer lifespans, wool doesn't contribute to microplastic pollution of the air and surface water, and doesn't have to be ironed.
