Wool has warmer properties than cotton and is still breathable, this way a wool curtain helps maintain a more comfortable temperature in our living room or bedroom.
The summer heat is long gone and even the last rays of the golden sun are losing their power. To be comfortable and warm, it is not enough to wear long and thick clothes, we should also pay attention to the right composition of our curtains. The fact is that the thermal comfort of the spaces is one of the signs of well-being that we value the most.
Wool is distinguished by properties such as resistance, flexibility, elasticity and hygroscopicity, that is, the absorption of humidity from the atmosphere. As a curious fact, wool fiber is capable of absorbing up to 50% of its wringing weight and, thanks to its helical structure of its molecules, it has the capacity to retain the shape of fabrics and maintain the elasticity of carpets.
Currently we no longer use wool like our Neolithic ancestors, but the fiber is transformed to obtain more or less thick and pure yarns depending on the final use for which it is intended, from fashion accessories to construction materials. It is estimated that the world production of washed wool is around two million tons, coming from countries such as Australia, Argentina, China, the United Kingdom, Russia, New Zealand, South Africa and Uruguay.
