Wool Week is celebrated as an industry phenomenon to support the small number of British manufacturers of wool products. Supported by HRH The Prince of Wales this community of hard-working companies and solo individuals continue to inspire future generations to make sure the British wool industry has a prosperous future.
Since the Stone Age wool has been known as one of the most effective weather protectors to man. It's 100% natural and every year sheep will produce a new fleece making it a renewable source, which makes the wool industry a sustainable and environmentally friendly one.
Wool has many benefits as a natural material, here are just a few.
- It is a natural insulator not only keeping you warm in the winter but cool in the summer.
- Wool has the ability to absorb moisture vapour making it incredibly breathable.
- Wool is naturally safe, it tends not to cause allergies and certainly does not encourage the growth of bacteria, because of its high water and nitrogen content.
- Wool is naturally flame retardant and will not melt.
