Wool ~ Natures miracle fibre
June 02, 2020
As the days (and nights) get cooler, we find ourselves migrating towards softer, warmer layers indoors. This week we explore why wool is our fibre of choice this winter.
Natural and renewable
Every year sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a renewable resource. We marvel at the perfect life cycle of Mother Nature - fleece keep sheep warm in winter, for it to be shorn in summer and used to keep humans warm the following winter. Perfect symbiosis.
When old or excess wool is disposed of, it naturally decomposes in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Durable and long lasting
A single fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still have the power to recover and return to its natural shape, this reduces the need to replace woollen items and ensures a long life. Your Nodi woollen rug is made to last.
Woollen fibres have a natural protective layer which helps prevents stains from being absorbed, they also pick up less dust as they are static resistant.
The make-up of wool fibre helps to block dirt and absorption of liquids. Due to the natural waxy coating, the dirt particles sit on top which means they are much easier to remove. We do still recommend microseal to make your rug that much more resistant against spills, everyday debris and offer a longer life span for your rug.
Next to skin softness
We use the best quality, hand spun wool and as a result the textures are incredibly soft. Treat yourself to wool and natural comfort this winter.
