First, wool has healing properties. Natural material has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, analgesic properties. For this reason, wool products are best suited for people suffering from gout, arthrosis, arthritis, rheumatism, orthopedic diseases, including osteochondrosis, muscle pain, circulatory disorders, bronchial diseases, including asthma, allergies, and so on. It is not surprising that wool slippers have gained such huge popularity — after all, they can relieve fatigue as much as possible. Wool can even normalize blood pressure.
Secondly, wool has a high level of water resistance, because there are many air bubbles between its villi. This eliminates the possibility of a greenhouse effect and helps prevent colds. In addition, the moisture absorption of wool is seven times higher than that of any textile fiber, which means that your body will always be warm and dry. By the way, absorbing moisture, wool generates heat, and due to this, blood circulation improves. The hygroscopicity of wool is 33% (for comparison: for synthetics this figure is 0, and for cotton it is 8%). Wool products are very warm because the thermal conductivity of the material is low. At the same time, wool products allow the skin to breathe.
Thirdly, natural wool contains lanolin, which ensures minimal contamination of the material even with prolonged use. Among other things, wool fibers are hypoallergenic.
For any disease, sheep’s wool should be used as an additional remedy. By the way, it is even used when nursing premature babies. A child sleeping on such a bed will be less likely to “catch” various infections (both viral and bacterial). Infantile colic and purulent diseases also bypass such children.
The energy of wool has a calming effect, which helps to relieve stress. Also, this material contributes to the normalization of the electrical potential of the human body, which also affects the rate of recovery. It would be ideal to use sheep’s wool for respiratory diseases, including pneumonia. To warm up the chest, you do not need rubbing or mustard plasters — you just need to put a sheepskin “shower warmer” on your naked body and do not remove it even at night — at this time the process of resorption of inflammatory foci will occur. Sheep wool can also be used for compresses for diseases such as sinusitis, submandibular lymphadenitis, otitis media, and so on.
If the operating conditions of the material are normal, then the wool is practically not electrified, which means that it will not retain dust particles. By the way, the scaly structure of wool does not prevent it from being smooth fibers. Wool also contains a large volume of air, so during the washing process, both water and detergents easily pass through the structure and dissolve dirt.
It should be noted and good wear of woolen products. They are distinguished by unconditional practicality and beautiful appearance. The main characteristics of the material are: crimp (thin wool fibers are more crimped), strength, elasticity and resilience. Thanks to the crimp, fluffy and loose yarn is obtained, products from which will be worn for a very long time. The flexibility and resistance to deformation of the material provide you with a presentable woolen products for a long time.
