Wool in our everyday lives

The complex structure of wool gives this material its attractive appearance and makes it extremely useful. Every strand is flexible and strong. It is a living, breathing material. It has a unique physical and chemical structure, which is why it is regarded as one of nature’s miracles. No other material is better at expelling moisture and perspiration while allowing air to circulate so that the skin remains fresh and dry the whole night long.

Wool keeps the body at an even temperature, making it an excellent climate regulator. It alleviates joint pain and reduces the risk of kidney inflammation and urinary infections. Its delicate surface is coated in natural lanolin, which calms the skin, lowers stress and has an anti-rheumatic effect. Since no kind of dust or dust mite can cling to it, wool does not cause allergic reactions.

The DEMKO® wool collection combines the excellent properties of wool with thousands of years of mankind’s experience and the results of the latest scientific research. Choose from a wide range of DEMKO® products made from 100% lambswool and cashmere, and manufactured to exacting professional standards.

DEMKO® wool:

  • Guaranteed 100% pure lambswool
  • Wool is a biologically active material.
  • Thanks to its bilateral structure, wool “breathes”. It absorbs the moisture given off by your body, and expels it into the air through the movement of the fibres, thus creating the ideal climate for your body. You don’t sweat in wool. Wool is capable of absorbing one third of its own weight in water vapour without seeming damp, while liquid water simply runs off it.
  • It’s excellent at retaining warmth. Its ability to absorb and expel moisture, and its heat retaining quality, make it an excellent climate regulator. You can test this with your own hands: just put your hands into a folded-over wool blanket, and in a few seconds you’ll experience its effect.
  • It has analgesic properties, alleviating rheumatic and joint pains, and also reduces stress and improves wellbeing, making it a “medicine saver”.
  • Wool improves the blood supply to the skin and extremities.
  • The lanolin coating of the wool fibres makes it hypoallergenic, and pleasant to touch.
  • Wool is very breathable.
  • It’s antistatic, self-cleaning and dust-repellent.
  • It’s hygienic and PH neutralising. In other words it neutralises harmful acids and alkalis.
  • It’s antibacterial and mite free.
  • It’s long-lasting.
  • It’s cleanable and washable.
