It sounds silly, we know. However, it’s really a simple fact of history: without wool, the world would look very different today. It clothed man before civilizations arose and has continued to provide for our needs throughout all that time.
The Shaping of Wool has Shaped History
We’ve been working with wool for more than 30 years, and that’s quite a tradition! However, it’s nothing compared to the long-standing history of this fabric. It has financed wars, created guilds and contributed to the growth of nations. Even the great poets have taken note of the role wool has played throughout time.
It kept our ancestors cool by day and warm by night. It became an art form for the peasant class and an economic staple for British merchants. It was all made possible because of the properties that make this type of fabric so unique.
It’s What Heroes are Made From
The Australian Navy didn’t choose wool for their uniforms because it was stylish, though it definitely is! There’s a long tradition of wool being used to clothe our biggest heroes. Astronauts, sailors, military personnel and even oil-rig workers have come to rely on this material. The way a wool fibre coils around itself creates an extremely durable cloth that is not easily torn but can easily help control body temperature. That’s why our men’s merino wool clothing is a perfect choice for anyone who needs to look their best.
Wool Helps with Moisture Control
The ability for wool to absorb moisture without feeling wet is one reason it is so consistently used in seafaring trades. However, there’s a little more to it than that. What happens when wet fabric isn’t dried quickly? It mildews, right?
Not with wool. Think about it; it’s not like sheep are known for their ability to grow a fine fungus. Wool has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties precisely because it comes from the fleece of various animals. That means your woollen clothing can absorb and release moisture which keeps it from beginning to mildew or hold odour.
This keeps your skin feeling dry and it’s the secret behind wool’s ability to work for both warm and cool weather. It also makes wool a natural choice for sportswear, summertime cardigans and in any environment with extreme temperatures. So, if you’re looking for a way to get around that blazing Australian sun, wool is a perfect choice.
