The Wonders of wool!

Non allergenic, wool does not promote the growth of bacteria and with microscopic scales, wool fibres trap dust in the top layers until vacuumed away and resists dirt and grease.

Breathable; wool’s natural structure allows it to absorb and release water vapour into the atmosphere, keeping you and your hound warm in winter and cool in summer.

Strong and durable; wool fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still have the power to recover and return to its natural shape so it will stand up to any amount of 'rearranging' by your hound and still look good!

Flame retardant, not something to dwell on but wool fibre has a higher ignition threshold than many other fibres and is flame retardant up to 600º C. It also produces less toxic fumes in a fire.

Heritage

Hainsworth fabric has clothed royalty and the military for full-dress ceremonial occasions and has embellished and enriched the furnishings of palaces across the world. The Woolsack, the seat of the Lord Speaker in the House of Lords, is covered with Hainsworth cloth.

They also delivered the first inherently heat and flame-retardant fabrics in the UK that now protect emergency services and military personnel around the world from the damaging effects of fire. Their award-winning innovation centre is an internationally recognised authority in the design and development of woven textiles and they hold The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.
