Wool for home interiors
More and more households are using wool for home interiors. Everyone knows about the versatility of wool in the clothing industry, but more people need to be made aware of the many ways in which this great natural fibre can be used to enrich home interiors.
The International Wool Textile Organisation (IWTO) explains why wool is the perfect choice for a wide variety of home uses.
Wool, with its breathability, elasticity, strength and thermoregulation properties, can be used for everything from bedding to curtains and carpets and is a material that can be adapted to suit any style of décor. Curtains, bedding, furniture upholstery, carpets and even home furnishings are some of the uses of this natural fibre.
Not only does it allow for innovative and groundbreaking designs, but also, being a biodegradable natural fibre, it drastically reduces the impact of a house on the environment.
Comfort and elegance
Wool is the fabric of "comfort" par excellence, it is one of the best ways to decorate and complement any type of room. In addition to adding beauty and elegance to the furniture, it makes the space a cosy place.
One of the most sophisticated decoration trends is to upholster sofas and home furniture with bouclé wool. As well as adding beauty and elegance to the furniture, it makes it an ideal retreat.
Imagine arriving home after a long day at work and sitting on a comfortable and soft sofa upholstered in wool, we assure you that the feeling of comfort and well-being is hard to match.
Create healthy and safe spaces
One of the outstanding properties of wool is its resistance to fire, although it catches fire, the flame is usually extinguished as it does not facilitate the spread of fire, a very important detail to increase the safety of your home.
In addition to its aesthetic function, it is a material that has a high capacity for thermal and acoustic insulation as its fibres are not compacted, but retain an air space that works as an insulator, an excellent material for use in curtains. Thanks to this, you can create calm and quiet spaces in which you can rest, study or work, while remaining aesthetically pleasing.
As wool does not produce volatile organic compounds (VOCs), it improves the air quality of spaces.
Creating eco-friendly spaces
Wool is a natural, biodegradable fibre that comes from sheep raised according to international standards of animal care and respect.
Because wool is a material that requires much less care than other fabrics, its longevity is greater and makes it a much more sustainable option.
As a natural protein-based fibre, it decomposes naturally in the soil. And, unlike synthetic fibres, it does not contribute to microplastic pollution.
There are undoubtedly many innovative uses for wool in home interiors today, and the best thing is that as well as helping to create an aesthetically harmonious environment, it makes the space more comfortable, safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly.
