Wool(sheep,yak) is the textile fiber that we get from sheep and other animals, including cashmere and mohair from goats. We can determine quality of wool by its fiber diameter, crimp, yield, color, and staple strength. Fiber diameter is the single most important wool characteristic determining quality and price.
Wool is the only material in the world that mammals produce naturally to regulate their body temperature in all climates. If you wear wool during the summer – you’ll actually be cool? Wool has the ability to regulate individual body temperature- keep you warm in the winter, and cool during the summer. The good insulation properties of natural materials are used for regulation of body temperature.
Wool is also naturally resistant to water – it simply repels moisture through its fiber, which makes it resistant to rot, mold or mildew. In addition, the unique structure of wool will not allow the accumulation of body odor so you can wear a garment of this material for days without problems. Often, airing the woolen garments is enough for their ”cleaning”.
