Natural benefits of wool and sheepskin
Huxford Grove products have retained the wonderful natural fibres of wool and leather, making it easy to care for while you enjoy it in your home. We’ve chosen only premium wool and sheepskin which has some incredible qualities…
Wool provides a high level of thermal comfort due to its outstanding insulating properties. It’s also super soft and cosy! You really have to touch it for yourself to believe just how amazing it feels.
New Zealand wool is one of the purest, most ecological fibres in the world and is naturally 100% biodegradable. Only environmentally responsible production methods are used.
Wool is like a spring, with its natural crimp it can return to its natural shape even after being stretched (up to 30%). It has natural resilience against flattening and hardening, and will keep its shape overtime.
Wool provides warmth in cool conditions because the fibre is able to trap air, providing up to ten times greater thermal resistance than any other fibre. And, it’ll keep you cool in Summer!
Wool can release dirt up to 25% more readily than synthetic fibres. This is because the cuticle, or outer layer, has a finely waxed surface with overlapping scale causing dirt to sit on the surface, making it easy to remove.
One of a kind
Our products are carefully hand-made from only the finest wool and sheepskin, making each piece exceptionally special and unique.
Wool is a unique, complex fibre that has evolved over thousands of years to protect sheep from a wide range of climates and conditions. In order to do this, wool offers many natural advantages which we have lovingly harnessed in our luxury products.
Did you know that wool is a natural, non-allergenic fibre, which is resistant to the growth of bacteria and dust mites. In addition, the fibres are too long and too coarse to be inhaled and so wool will not irritate the respiratory system or cause sneezing and other unpleasant allergic reactions. Wool is ideal for those who suffer allergies to other synthetic materials.
