The Natural Advantages of Wool
24/05/2019

• Although wool fibres are not hollow, they readily absorb up to 1/3rd of their weight in moisture/liquids. • Wool can readily move liquids through its volume from high concentration areas to lower concentration areas, commonly known as “wicking”. • Wool, like many other textiles is an excellent sound and vibration absorber • Wool has an ignition limit at a higher temperature than many other commonly used fibres Cotton 255 Celsius Rayon 420 Celsius Nylon 575 celsius Polyester 560 Celsius Wool 600 Celsius • Wool exhibits a low rate of flame spread, has low heat release and low rate of combustion. • When in a flame wool felt neither melts not drips • Wool will char (blacken) in fire, but the resulting surface is both insulating and self-extinguishing • Wool has a low smoke emission • Wool is resistant to static electricity, mainly due to the moisture content of the fibre which helps conductivity • In it’s purest form wool felt is considered by the medical industry to be hypoallergenic. • Wool can be pressed, sewn, knitted, woven, stitched, needled & spun making it one of the most versatile natural textiles available. Wool is an amazing natural resource, and in our business the resulting fabric “Pressed Wool Felt” carries the characteristics of wool to even greater heights which will be discussed in our next post
