THE PROPERTIES OF WOOL
Wool reflects our modern lifestyles by adapting to different temperatures and climates – better than cotton and synthetic fibers. Wool quickly absorbs up to 30% of its weight in moisture from the body, keeping the body warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Since wool is partly composed of protein, it is odor-absorbent and anti-bacterial. Wool is by its nature one of the world’s most eco-friendly fibers: it is natural, renewable, and biodegradable.
With & Wessel has a high standard and motivation towards eco-friendly production. The company chooses to work with manufacturers that secure the highest quality measures of the production process. The goal is to reach the lowest overall environmental impact as possible.
To ensure that the clothing of With & Wessel is of the highest possible quality, W&W works with wool producers licensed by Woolmark, the top quality assurance of wool standards in the world. The Merino wool fabrics have all been quality tested for stretch, pill, and endurance by the strict standards of our fabric mills.
