Which makes wool to such a beautiful nature material and how you keep it beautiful.
Wool is 100% biodegradable.
Wool is a particularly natural and renewable raw material. As long as there is grass to eat, sheep will continue to produce wool. If wool is thrown away, it goes naturally in months or years (this depends on the composition) in the earth, and - even better - also gives valuable nutrients back to the earth. For example, wool is sometimes used as a fertilizer, which promotes the growth of vegetables and herbs. In addition, it provides improved water infiltration, soil through -aiming and reduced erosion. Win win. The opposite is true for synthetic fibers, which slowly dissolve and provide superfluous dirt for mother earth. For comparison: at Nylon it takes about forty (!) Years for it to be completely demolished.
Wool is insulating.
Wool is insulating, both with warmth and cold, just like a thermos bottle.
Wool is antibacterial.
This is due to the lanoline (wool fat) present in wool- when wool becomes moist, part of the lanolin is converted into lanolin soap, which ensures that the fabric cleans hygienically! Our unpaved wool felts have a higher lanoline content than the painted felts.
