What is wool?

Wool is 7 times more resistant to wear than cotton and even 10 times more resistant than silk. Even after folding-stretching the wool fiber 20,000 times, it does not lose its original properties. From too high a temperature, the wool fiber shrinks, but when stretched, it can return to its original shape and therefore, with proper care, wool products will last for years.

Wool products, like many natural fiber products (such as leather), have a specific odor, so if a new wool product is very fragrant, it is worth questioning its quality. On the other hand, the particularly sharp specific smell of the product may mean that it is made of low-quality wool. The natural smell of wool is effectively mitigated by its ventilation in a dry environment, in the sun or downwind.

What makes wool special?

Wool absorbs moisture well, so it rarely charges.
More stain resistant
The natural protective layer of wool reduces the formation of stains and absorption.
Woolen clothes stretch out under the man wearing them and later return to their shape.
As long as there are grasses for sheep to graze, they will grow new wool every year.
Breathable and odor resistant
Wool absorbs and evaporates moisture (sweat) and unpleasant odors.
The spent wool can be returned to the soil where it decomposes quickly.
Suitable for all seasons
Wool adapts to changes in human body temperature throughout the year.

Sheep wool

perhaps the most popular type of wool, known to all as a natural fiber and has been used since ancient times. This wool is soft, warm, breathable and provides excellent protection against temperature changes.

Merino sheep wool

particularly high quality wool, most valued in the textile industry. Merino sheep are hilly animals that are mainly reared in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. This wool is extremely thin, soft and soft, which is why it is especially popular with people who are sensitive to the roughness of wool.

Camel wool

collected by hand combing the animals during the spring fur change, this wool is light, soft and soft. Due to the declining population of camels and the scarcity of wool from these animals, it is considered a very expensive material in the textile industry and is therefore mostly blended with merino sheep wool. Camel wool contains 30% lanolin (a natural wool fat). more than merino wool, so it retains heat better.

Alpaca wool

much lighter than sheep, especially soft and shiny it silk, also firm, almost non-sticky and does not wrinkle. Depending on the age and breed of the alpaca, its wool retains heat on average 4-6 times better than sheep.

Cashmere wool

one of the most luxurious wool obtained from cashmere goats. Their wool hair has a soft, silky shine, and the cashmere itself is extremely light and warm. The soft lower cashmere goat hair used to make luxury fabrics is not cut, but carefully combed.

Types of wool

Wool (Latin: lana) is a natural fiber obtained from different types of animal fur, valued for its unique thermal and material properties from ancient times to the present day. The path of wool from fiber to our hands is a long and refined process. Collected from the farms, it is cleaned and, combining both ancient and modern techniques, is turned into yarn threads and modern materials by spinners, weavers and knitters. Wool fibers vary and their characteristics depend on the species of animal:


Wool care

Wool is easy to maintain, and due to its rapid reaction due to its chemical composition, wool cleans itself easily. When the time comes for more serious supervision, it is important to know the basic rules.
