Wool, Nature’s Super Fiber
The protein found in merino wool fibers known as keratin, responsible for breaking down odor-forming bacteria, is also water-repellent. This allows wool to not only wick away liquids but also repel dust and contaminants in the atmosphere.
Wool is naturally less flammable than other fibers. The chemical structure of a wool fiber makes it a flame resistant material that needs no extra treatment to reach a class A standard. When felted, the wool fibers create an airtight environment, making them more impervious to combustion. Our Designer Felt has been tested by Exova Canada Inc. according to the CAN/ULC S102 “Test for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials and Assemblies.”
Wool will naturally decompose when disposed of in soil, making it a great fertilizer. It takes a few years for the keratin proteins to break down completely, and until they do, the wool slowly relinquishes nitrogen-based nutrients back into the earth.
Interior Felt wool is sourced from merino sheep farms in New Zealand, Australia, Europe and South America. The sheep are sheared and their coats are allowed to grow back each year.
