Wool has been shorn from sheep by farmers for thousands of years. Sheep were some
of the first creatures to be properly bred for use by humans and we have a very close
relationship with them. Most breeds of sheep need regular shearing by a human or their
coat will become too thick and they can overheat and sometimes die! It is a long and
mutually beneficial relationship, ours with sheep, and we benefit hugely from what
they give us.
It is one of the best fibers in the world, wool. It has incredible insulating properties and
is naturally fire retardant, so you do not need to have a comforter sprayed with some
truly awful chemicals to feel safe. Many modern wool breeds are not itchy, you can
have them next to your skin and feel great.
Wool has the very useful property of absorbing moisture, up to 30% of its weight can be
water in the right conditions. It absorbs and releases moisture very efficiently, meaning

the bouncy softness of the fibers. The spring from a Wool Pillows is unique and very
comfortable. As a support for the head in bed, or just getting it right under your back
after a long day, they are just the ticket.
Another advantage of wool is its breathability. Tiny air pockets in the fibers have a
marvelous insulating ability, trapping warm air in the weave and regulating the
temperature and humidity effectively. You will find that with a wool pillow or
comforter, you are never too warm or cold. It is almost uncanny, but for those of us who
have used one, it is hard to go back to anything else.
Finally, there is no doubt that Wool Comforter have a lot to offer that can greatly
improve our living standard, no matter where we live or what we do. So next time you
buy a comforter, go for the woolen one.
