Handmade Woollen Rasta Hats
Benefits of Wool
Wool, one of the oldest textiles fibers known. Due to the fact it absorbs moisture vapour, wool clothing provides superior comfort in both hot and cold weather. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture before it becomes really damp. While wool can absorb moisture, it repels liquids. If you are caught in a shower of rain, it will take quite some time before the rain penetrates your wool clothing, and so wool keeps you dry. Wool is fire resistant, naturally elastic and wears longer. Each wool fibre is made up of millions of coiled springs that stretch and give rather than break, and so wool is extremely durable. It also resists static and insulates against noise, it also resists dirt. In conclusion wool is comfortable to wear because its elasticity means garments fit so well and yield to body movement. It absorbs moisture yet allows your body to breathe. No other fabric serves so well under such a variety of conditions, nor combines so many natural properties.
It is extremely important to care for your woollen garment properly. When it comes time to wash your hat make sure you wash it in luke warm water as cold or hot will shock the fibres and they will react adversely. Hand wash in luke warm water with a wool detergent like Softly or even hair shampoo. Hand wash twice and then rinse twice. To remove all the water spin dry on woollen cycle in washing machine or roll in a towel and kneel on roll to remove water. Lay flat to dry in the shade.
