Wool is a unique and natural luxury fiber that works as an air conditioner and ensures that the body keeps the temperature even in a natural way, regardless of whether it is hot or cold in the surroundings.


AND kind 

Here in the Nordics it is mainly used because it is warming, but in countries near the equator it is used for its cooling properties, as it protects against the heat.

The curly fibers of the wool create millions of small air spaces around the wool fiber, which gives an insulating effect. Wool can absorb a lot of moisture (up to 30% of its own weight) without feeling damp.

Wool contains lanolin which is a protective fat from the sheep's skin that protects the wool, and thus the sheep, against weather, wind and dehydration. The lanolin also prevents moisture from leaving the skin. The lanolin is to some extent water-repellent and repels dirt. You can say that wool is self-cleaning. Wool is flame retardant and is therefore a natural flame retardant. Wool is 100% renewable and naturally degradable without harming nature. Wool is nature's own fantastic raw material that has been used by man for 5000 years. It can be spun into yarn or thread and it can be felted.



Just like other natural materials, wool breathes and cleans itself, so hang your fleece and wool garments outside for airing, preferably in damp weather. The fleece can withstand sun, wind and rain and they become whiter, cleaner, curlier if they are allowed to air out regularly. Feel free to shake your trap before you bring it in so it retains its softness and fluffiness. Hand-felted fleeces are durable and last a very long time.


Most washing machines have a special wool program - choose it. It is gentle on the wool as it is cradled nicely in the wool programme. Use detergent suitable for wool. Common detergents are often made to "eat up proteins", which is often what stains are made of. Since animal fibers, such as wool and silk, are precisely proteins,   the usual detergent will slowly but surely eat up the garment. Fabric softener should never be used. Centrifuge at a maximum of 800 rpm.


If you are lucky enough to live where there is snow in the winter, you can lay out the fleece with the curls facing down in fresh, clean snow. Lightly rub snow into the curls and shake it out. Take it inside to dry again. Alternatively, you can wash the fleece by hand by soaking it in a bath of lukewarm water. Allow it to drip dry, stretch the traps while wet, and feel free to do it again as it dries but is still damp. It takes a couple of days for the cases to dry up completely.
