Drape over the foot of your bed or use as a throw over the sofa - either way it's a wonderful addition to your decor.
Named after the breed, Merino is the most refined and softest sheep wool. It’s so fine that it can have a diameter of down to 17 microns. Originating from Spain, it is the most sought after wool for luxury textiles.
Benefits of Wool
Wool is a living, breathing ‘smart’ fibre. It improves the air in enclosed spaces, improves sleep, provides comfort and ensures safety. Wool has a protective layer that prevents stains from being absorbed. As it is also anti-static, it picks up less dust and lint from the air.
Unlike any other textile fibre, wool can refresh itself simply by hanging in fresh air. This saves water, washing detergent, energy and the time to walk to the dry cleaners.
By absorbing moisture vapour, wool garments leave less perspiration on the skin, reducing odour-causing bacteria. Easily refreshed by airing, wool garments can be worn longer between washes due to wool’s natural ability to shed dirt and bacteria.
Need A Good Night’s Sleep?
A simple way to a better night’s sleep may be to sleep under wool. Wool is a natural insulator helping body temperatures to stay at a comfortable level at night irrespective of summer or winter time.
Renewable, Recyclable & Biodegradable
Wool fibres are high quality and durable, capable of re-use and recycling, ultimately reducing landfill disposal. Research shows that the average life of a wool garment is 2-10 years, compared to 2-3 years for garments made from other fibres. Sheep produce a new fleece every year, without depleting finite natural resources. Wool decomposes in soil in a matter of years, releasing valuable nitrogen-based nutrients back into the soil.
