Wool is warm and isolating, yet breathing. It has an unsurpassed natural elasticity, which makes this material ideal for making e.g. costumes, trousers, coats, jackets etc. The thermoregulating properties of wool keep the body of the wearer warm in winter and cool in summer. Wool can absorb 30% of its weight before it starts to feel wet. It is a 100% natural material, recyclable and biodegradable. In the processing of wool that is labelled as organic, extra care was given to animal welfare and the environment. In organic animal husbandry the animals always have acces to open air, the number of animals has to be related to the size of the meadows to avoid erosion and over-fertilisation. They are not treated preventively with insecticides and mulesing of the sheep is forbidden.
