MERINO WOOL - the properties
Merino wool fabric is a great thermal insulator, so when it gets cold, clothes made of the material will keep you warm, and in warm environment you won’t feel too hot..
Wool wicks moisture away from your body and keeps you warm even when it gets damp.
Its exceptionally thin fibers can be woven into soft and breathable fabrics. This is why merino wool clothes won’t let your body overheat. This is particularly important for very young children, who don’t yet have the ability to communicate such discomfort, even though overheating is as distressing for them as it is for adults.
Thanks to very long fibers, our fabrics are particularly soft and nice to the touch, they are not itchy and don’t irritate skin.
Merino fibers react with oxygen. This means that merino wool can be effectively refreshed just by airing it, and so it doesn’t need to be washed frequently.
The cuticular structure of these fibers facilitates self-cleaning processes and makes it more difficult for bacteria to grow and cause unpleasant smell.
Merino wool is non-combustible.
WOOL FABRIC CARE
Wool likes - important
special wool washing agents
to be stored flat
Wool tolerates - more important
hand washing in lukewarm water max 30 degrees Celsius
machine washing only in special wool cycles (for a brief description of a wool washing cyclesee below)
ironing at low temperatures, only dry ironing
Wool doesn’t like - most important
changes in temperatures: washing and rinsing should be made at similar temperatures
general purpose washing powders and softeners
spinning, wringing and rubbing
storing on hangers (due to stretching)
Pilling refers to formation of small bobbles on the surface of a fabric with time. This is a natural process and is caused by short fibres migrating to the surface of the fabric, These can be easily removed with a special comb or other fabric shavers. Once removed, they will generally stop forming after a few washes.
Wool machine wash cycle- or why choosing a special wool washing cycle is crucial...
a washing machine can ensure a stable water temperature throughout the entirewashing and rinsing process,
the drum spins much less frequently than in standard programmes, so that fabrics are not as much agitated and rubbed against each other,
the maximum spinning speed is 800 (and you can adjust or even turn the spinning phase off).
