In recent years here has been an overwhelming trend to use cheap, imported man made textiles to the detriment of our own high quality natural products, indeed many of the 'old' industries in have died out and with them, sadly, the knowledge and skills of ancient craftsmen.
However now, with the awareness of global warming, there is a much more enlightened attitude to the natural products produced on our own doorstep. Despite this resurgence WoolSoft feels strongly that pure wool is still under-rated in its uses and the full potential of this wonderful product can be maximized even further. Wool is planet friendly, naturally resourced, renewable, easily recycled and biodegrades without any harm to the planet.
All WoolSoft products are hand made and stuffed entirely with 100% British Wool, the wool we use has been shorn off the backs of British sheep and scoured here in the UK. No air miles, no imported wool, no mass production, just natural, environmentally friendly and created for you. Simple!
Some of the many benefits of pure wool are:
- Keeps you cool in hot weather, warm in cold weather
- Natural resistance to dust mites and bacteria
- Naturally fire retardant
- Can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture
Considerable care is taken to ensure the correct type of 100% British wool is used in the making of our products, our varied range demands high quality fleece and we have a range of wools to suit each particular product and what is demanded of it. You will not find fleece 'left-overs' or sub quality wool in our products.
