Fun Facts About Wool and Why It's The Perfect Coat Material
Discover the intriguing world of wool, a material steeped in history and natural brilliance. Its unique properties make it an unrivalled choice for cosy, stylish coats.
- It is a natural and renewable source - Wool, as you probably already know, comes from sheep which produce new fleece every year. Bonus, wool is also biodegradable.
- It wicks moisture - Wool fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture and then moves it away from your skin to evaporate into the air. This action is what keeps you dry and warm throughout the winter. Wool fibres also react to the changes in your body temperature and can also cool you down when you're overheating as it wicks away the sweat.
- It resists stains and odours - Wool textiles have a unique outer layer that helps repel stains and keeps them from being absorbed. The odour resistant properties come from the fibres ability to keep the skin dry and prevent the build-up of sweat and bacteria.
- It is wrinkle resistant - Wool fibres have a natural crimp and allows the fabric to retain its shape and have great crease recovery. Some of our Belle & Bloom coats are made with wool blends which also has its advantages: the blends keep the coats more affordable and even more wrinkle resistant, thanks to the polyester.
Double Brushed Wool — Taking It A Notch Higher
At belle & bloom, our coats are made from double brushed wool, which means the fabric's surface is treated the same on both sides, so they're equally soft. This comfortable and plush hand feel means we don't need to use lining. No lining allows for more delicate silhouettes and keeps the coat lightweight and from looking too stiff.
However, unlined wool coats require the highest level of craftsmanship, as all seams are enclosed and appear the same on both the outside and inside the coat. There are no visible threads or uneven seams, which would typically hide inside a lining.
