silver wool is a delicate gray that pairs beautifully with a wide range of colors and patterns. It is a must have for your fabric stash!
In the days before synthetic fibers became widely available, wool cloth was used for clothing, blankets and rugs. Pliny the Elder notes that the noble Romans “clothed themselves with wool, linen and leather.”
Wool naturally repels water, resists odors, and can even help control heat loss. Its insulating properties are also why it’s such a popular fabric for socks. Our TIMELESS wool socks are made of 100% Merino wool, which not only helps wick away sweat, but also pulls moisture closer to the skin to keep feet dry and blister free.
During the production of wool, the raw material is called “grease wool” or “raw greasy wool.” This consists of the hair from the sheep along with lanolin, animal fat and other vegetable matter from the animals environment. It must be scoured (a process of cleaning) before it can be used for commercial purposes. This can be done by washing the grease wool in soapy water, chemical carbonization or a more industrially sophisticated process that uses detergent and alkali in specialized equipment.
After being cleaned, the scoured wool can then be spun and woven into a variety of different products such as blankets, hats, mittens and sweaters. In addition, it is used in the production of felt. Felt is also used to cover piano hammers, as a sound absorption material in stereo speakers, and to absorb odors from heavy machinery.
