Woolstar products are proudly made from 100% Australian wool. With over 200
years of experience Australia is internationally recognised as the world’s
expert wool growing nation.
Australian wool is a natural, sustainable, renewable and biodegradable fibre,
grown by dedicated farmers who are stewards of their flocks and their land
applying and building on generations of knowledge and experience.
Natural, Sustainable & Renewable - Healthy
Wool is a
pure and natural fibre that has evolved over millions of years and is made from
the same molecule found in human hair, nails and eye lashes – Keratin.
An insoluble protein with a unique structure, Keratin provides a natural
resistance to sunlight, water, acids, deterioration and mildew under most normal
conditions. It makes perfect sense that the same molecular structure that
protects the skin, makes for healthier bedding and a good night’s sleep.
Wool is renewable and sustainable. Sheep grow a new fleece each year,
thriving on open farmland under the care of proud Australian wool growers who
are committed to best land and flock management.
Wool is naturally odour reducing due to
its physical and chemical structure. The ability of wool to absorb and transport
moisture (sweat) away from the skin where it evaporates into the air, prevents
bacteria developing and creating unpleasant body odours. Sweat itself has no
odour, but if it is allowed to stay on the skin, bacteria will develop and so
will body odours.
Wool fibres are scaly on their surface with no charge, providing an
anti-microbial environment. This means that the bacteria are not attracted to or
able to penetrate the scales, like they are the smooth, positively charged
surface of a synthetic fibre.
Insulation, Breathability & Temperature Stability
you sleep, wool keeps you warm in the cold of a snowy winter and cool in the
heat of a humid summer, protecting the microclimate next to skin in changing
conditions by absorbing and releasing moisture.
The core of a wool fibre is hydrophilic (water retaining), and is breathable,
moving perspiration away from the skin so that you feel fresh and dry. The
breathability of wool enables a reaction to the surroundings and with your body
temperature to provide comfort and stability.
The active ability of wool to react to changes in one’s body temperature and
the microclimate above the skin is further enhanced by wool’s insulation
capacity. The thermal insulation provided by a wool is due to the air trapped
between the fibres, and as wool is finer than other textiles, it contains more
air spaces, and provides greater insulation.
These superior insulation, microclimate control and moisture wicking
abilities of wool are proven to improve sleep patterns.
Wool fibres are strong, long and very resilient. A wool fibre can be bent
20,000 times without breaking and when it is wet, it can be extended up to 30%
without damage. When the extension is released, the fibre then recovers
completely to its original dimensions.
Wool has natural fire resistant attributes
providing additional safety. This fire resistance is due to:
High ignition temperature: wool needs to reach a high level of heat before
it will ignite.
Low heat of combustion: it releases comparatively low heat to other fabrics.
Wool is made of nitrogen: it therefore requires a great amount of oxygen,
more than what occurs naturally in the atmosphere.
If wool is ignited, it burns slowly and can even self-extinguish.
