Wool is a natural fibre obtained from sheep, goat, muskox, bison and other similar animals. It has a distinct chemical property, compared to other popular textiles like, cotton or linen, made mostly of cellulose, wool contains protein and lipids. Follicles, cells from the skin generate wool. They produce three types of fibres: medullated fibres, kemp and true wool fibres. The crimp of wool holds air, causing the fabric to retain heat.
Wool is an amazing insulator; its thermal resistance inhibits heat transfer and makes it an extraordinary textile for upholstery and curtains. Because of this property the top best 5star hotels love using wools, a luxury natural fibre, naturally fire retardant, offering a great level of fire safety.
