Wool is one of those strange phenomena’s where it is warner in the winter and cooler in the summer, so it makes your living room or bedrooms so much more comfortable and even potentially reducing heating bills.  The natural product enables moisture in the air to be absorbed which moderates the temperature and humidity in the room.
