is a Natural fiber, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. It absorbs
and wicks away moisture. It does not support combustion, take the match
away and the flame extinguishes. Microscopic scales causes the fibers
to cling to each other. Can be recarded many times. Commonly passed
onto succeeding generations. Historically used as a filling in heirloom
quilts. Staple length is normally 2 1/2” or more, therefore quilting can
be done further apart than cotton. Crimp is genetic, providing
elasticity. Provides greatest comfort at lowest cost over its lifetime.
is a myth to say that wool cannot be washed. Sheep get wet often and
nothing terrible happens to them. It is what we do to the wet wool that
makes the difference between success and disaster. Wash only in cold
water using a neutral ph soap such as Orvus or ph balanced shampoo.
Soak in a large sink or bathtub filled with enough water to cover the
quilt or comforter. Do not agitate. Agitation and rubbing together of
wool fibers causes felting, an irreversible process. Gently squeeze the
fabric with your hands. After washing, a number of rinsings may be
necessary to remove all the soap. Spin cycle to extract the water. Line
dry. Do not dry in an automatic dryer.
