Wool Upholstery Fabric

Wool has been used since as far back as 6000 BC. Wool is the textile fiber that comes from sheep and other particular animals; differing depending on what animal it is obtained from. Wool differs from other textiles obtained from animals such as hair or fur; it is crimped, elastic and grows in clusters. Its crimped quality means it has greater bulk than many other textiles, which allows it to retain heat, making it quite an ideal insulator fabric. The crimps also dictate the fineness of the wool. The finer the wool; the more crimps. Wool readily absorbs moisture with an ability to absorb almost one third of its weight. Wool also ignites at high temperatures, has a low rate of flame speed, low heat release and low combustion speed, making it an ideal fabric for high safety environments. Complementary to this it is resistant to static electricity, making it less likely to spark or cling to the body. If used for upholstery in automobiles, wool would reduce risk of a shock when a one touches a grounded object.
