It’s soft. A question I get asked regularly online is ‘is it itchy?’ I can totally understand why you’d ask, a lot of wools have a scratchiness to them and it can be unpleasant, particularly when wearing them. I can assure you I wouldn’t be working with it every day if it were scratchy in the slightest. Merino wool is super soft and delightful to work with.
It’s Hypoallergenic. Not only is this extremely handy for a lot of my customers but for me, it’s rather essential since I’m allergic to loads of other wools so touching them every day would not be fun. Merino wool being hypoallergenic means that it’s also a wonderful fibre to use around babies with their sensitive skin, you know it’ll be gentle and safe.
It’s massively resistant, in a good way. Merino wool is naturally flame retardant which is obviously incredibly important when it comes to home furnishings. It’s also water resistant, stain resistant and odour resistant. All of these qualities are part of the genius of Merino wool. Of course, if you chuck a whole glass of red wine over a merino wool blanket then it will make it wet, stained and probably a bit wine smelly (another good reason not to waste valuable wine) but with lower level drips and spills it’s brilliant.
It’s breathable and temperature regulating. (Seriously, we’re only on number 4 and don’t you think it’s amazing enough already?!) It has active fibre’s which mean it reacts to changes in body temperature, both this and its breathability mean that it isn’t clammy when going indoors from outside, not only that, but it helps to regulate the heart rate which also improves sleep!
