Nature & Material

Wool is a completely natural material and has a range of unique properties that synthetics can't match. Wool is sustainable, renewable, biodegradable, recyclable and able to be produced organically.

 • Naturally moisture-wicking – The wool fibres will wick sweat away from the body and as a breathable fabric, wool helps your body regulate temperature; great for staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

 • Durability with long lasting appearance – The wool fibre structure is like a spring, it has natural crimp that allows it to return to its natural shape easily. A perfect quality for throws and blankets which are used often, helping to keep your decor and living space nice and tidy. A superior material performance, in comparison to man-made fibres.

 • Easy-care – The surface of the wool fibre consists of a number of overlapping scales which means dirt sits on the surface, rather than going into the fibre, making it extremely easy to clean. This structure also means it does not absorb spills quickly, allowing time for them to be easily blotted up. 

• Naturally Anti-static – Wool generates very little static electricity, perfect for everyday home use as static attracts lint, dirt and dust, meaning its properties keep it cleaner for longer.

 • Hypoallergenic – Wool is resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew that can trigger allergic reactions in people.

 • Cleaner Internal Air & Odour-resistant - Wool absorbs harmful pollutants from the air, it does not re-emit them. It is estimated that wool used in interiors can help purify the air for 30 years. Wool also absorbs sweat and releases it back into the air, inhibiting bacteria growth and preventing the fabric from retaining the smell.

Ethically Sourced - The wool from our throws and blankets are sourced from a hand picked network of international growers, all chosen for their high standards in animal welfare, land management and social impact.

Pure New Wool

Pure New Wool is wool that has been woven for the very first time. As wool is recyclable, the term ‘new’ means the wool has never been previously used and the fibres have not sustained any wear. The fibres of Pure New Wool are fine, strong and durable, making our blankets and throws warm, long-lasting and high quality. All of our Pure New Wool products are 100% pure and are not blended with any other fibres. Explore our Pure New Wool throws and blankets.
