Which Fabrics to choose for Office Seating? – The Amazing Benefits of Wool!

If you’re thinking of refurbishing, reupholstering or replacing your office seating, it’s worth taking a minute to think about the fabric as it really can make a difference!

Wool gives superior performance to man-made fibres, and as wool is a naturally occurring fibre it has many other amazing benefits including:

  • Wrinkle resistance - wool has a natural spring that allows it to return to its natural shape even after being stretched eg. sat on!
  • Balanced thermal insulation properties – wool is warm in winter and cool in the summer.
  • Hypoallergenic properties - wool is resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew that can trigger allergic reactions in many people.
  • Absorption of harmful pollutants - wool absorbs many harmful pollutants from the air and does not re-emit them. It's estimated that wool used in interiors can help purify the air for 30 years.
  • Dust mite resistance - dust mites need moisture to survive and are one of the triggers for asthma attacks.
  • Naturally anti-static - because of the qualities of its natural fibres. Static attracts lint, dirt, and dust, so its anti-static properties keep it much cleaner for longer.
  • Easily cleaned - wool fabrics clean easily because the outside surface of the wool fibre consists of a series of overlapping scales (similar to the feathers on a bird), which means that dirt sits on the surface of the fibre, making it easy to remove.
  • Wool is naturally flame resistant - wool is difficult to ignite, has low flame spread and heat release properties; it does not melt and has superior self-extinguishing qualities.
  • Wool is a naturally renewable fibre. Each year sheep produce a fleece, which makes wool a natural and renewable resource.
  • Eco-friendly and Sustainable - when it's 'out with the old' wool will naturally biodegrade. It is a totally natural product, entirely renewable and sustainable. And it is 100% biodegradable – win, win.
