Wool is a natural material that is almost as old as human civilization itself.
The oldest discovered materials are mixtures of wool.
Similar to human hair, wool is a horny tissue that contains lanolin.
This is a natural fat that protects the wool, and has many positive effects on the human health in general.
It is beneficial to muscles, joints and spine. It relieves pain and stimulates circulation.
For centuries, lanolin is also used in medicine for making anti-rheumatic and skin care creams.
It is viruses and bacteria resistant substance, because it contains certain amino acids that don’t allow their survival.
Wool fibers affect receptors in the skin, accelerating recovery and easing the pain.
Since antiquity, the best cure for toothache or headache was woolen scarf wrapped around one’s head. Due to lanolin, wool maintains a constant body temperature and protect from the cold and excessive sweating.
This is an explanation why the ancient peoples used wool for wrapping premature babies. Wool has a very complex structure of porous cells with many air plugs, resulting in special insulating properties, as well as softness and lightness.
Warming up the body with wool improves circulation and has many beneficial effects on internal organs such as kidneys. Wool has a very high level of moisture absorption (up to 40%), without making a feeling of humidity.
Moisture evaporates from the wool leaving it dry. With the increasing prevalence of allergies, the importance of wool is growing, not only for clothing,
but also for other applications as sleep hygiene and home furnishing.
Wool does not cause allergies and allows skin to breathe. Merino sheep gives the softest, highest quality wool that is used for producing these garments.
Proper maintained, the wool clothes will have very long life.
Woolen clothes are washed by hand and separately from other clothing.
Clothing should be soaked in cold water (to 30 degrees) not more than 10 minutes,
treated with mild detergents that doesn’t contain bleach and are intended for wool washing.
Irrigation water must have the same temperature as the washing water. First, excess moisture must be eliminated from the washed clothes, best by wrapping and squeezing in a dry towel.
Drying clothes on the hook is not recommended. It should be dried on a flat surface, widespread,
and shaped by hand (not crumpled or twisted) at room temperature.
Drying in contact with radiator or direct sunlight is not allowed. When the product is dry, it can only be ironed overlaid with wet cotton fabric, at moderately high temperatures. As for the dry cleaning, it can be dry chemical treated.
