3 main characteristics that make our
premium merino wool felt shine
Merino wool is antistatic.
Synthetic fibers can become statically charged due to electrosmog. Merino fibers are antistatic. This magic happens because they absorb moisture.
Merino wool is antibacterial.
It is all about the wool fat, the so-called lanolin, in the wool. Lanolin creates a microclimate in which bacteria do not feel comfortable. Also important, the specific structure of the merino fiber. The structure of the surface is similar to fish scales. No clean and straight surface in contrast to synthetic fibers. Bacteria find it difficult to inhabit.
Merino wool is pilling-resistant.
The long fibers of merino wool tangle difficult in contrast to the short fibers of other types of wool. The formation of nodules is therefore hardly possible.
