Fun Fiber facts

Did you know?...

*wool is the only fabric that stays warm when wet

* mohair is stronger than steel per micron

* there are many uses for wool-clothing, quilts, blankets, mattress pads,mattresses, pillows ,rugs, jewelry, art(pictures,vases and more), tents , insulation, fertilizer and more!

*angora is from the bunny, while mohair is from the goat

*natural white wool felts faster than natural black wool

*wool is a naturally renewable resource unlike polyester

*mohair, llama, and alpaca do not have elasticity that wool has, so anything made 100% of these fibers will keep getting bigger and bigger and will not hold its shape. Adding 30% wool solves this problem.
