Wool fibers breathe and have the property of acting as a natural thermostat regulating body temperature? This helps your baby maintain a stable temperature and keeps your baby dry and comfortable. It does this "dynamically," meaning it happens when it's needed, not when it isn't. Warm in winter and cool in summer.
The voluminous fiber structure also provides permanent ventilation. In addition, wool absorbs moisture very well and draws sweat away from the body. The stored moisture evaporates partly due to the good ventilating property of the wool and because sweat is constantly removed, the body remains relatively cool and comfortable in the summer.

Babies who sleep on animal skins are less likely to develop asthma later in life, new research shows.
If children sleep on animal skin such as a sheepskin in the first three months of life, they have a 79 percent lower risk of asthma by the age of 6. Microbes in animal fur probably protect children against the lung disease.
You can enjoy your wool product for years if you maintain it properly. You don't have to wash wool very often, it is naturally anti-bacterial. A good night of hanging out also ensures that odors often disappear. Still, it's a good idea to wash occasionally.
As a rule, it is recommended to wash wool by hand. But this certainly also has risks. Wool should be washed at 30 degrees, which feels quite cold. Few people check the water with a thermometer. Washing too hot results in shrinkage. In addition, people often use too much detergent when washing by hand, and they are less able to rinse it out. Wringing too hard is also a risk.
As stated above: you wash wool at 30 degrees, and certainly not hotter. But also not colder! A too cold temperature can frighten the fibers and this can also cause shrinkage.
It is safest to wash wool in the machine, on the wool wash program. Make sure the centrifuge is not set higher than 600 rpm. Here again: a high speed causes your woolen clothing to shrink. Also important: wash wool with wool. Do not include jeans or clothing with zippers.
Wool naturally contains a type of fat, lanolin. This gives the wool a soft protective layer against dirt and retains heat for a long time when it is cold. But it also ensures that the wool remains elastic and wears less quickly. By using a special wool detergent that contains lanolin, you can continue to enjoy these properties. In addition, special wool detergents never contain bleach, which is disastrous for wool.
