The Wardrobe Study
New research reveals that wool clothes are the longest-lasting items in our wardrobes. An extensive dive into wardrobes across the world uncovers how we wear, care and dispose of clothes.
Wool does not contribute to microplastic pollution
As much as 35 per cent of microplastics in the marine environment are fibres from synthetic clothing, an amount that continues to increase. But by contrast, science has shown that wool readily biodegrades in both land and marine environments, offering a less impactful solution and not contributing to microplastic pollution.
Close contact: wool for eczema
Many of us have broken out in a rash at least once in our lives – heat rash, stress rash, or some other nasty. But spare a thought for those who suffer from constant breakouts, or for babies too young to understand what this intense itchy, dry skin is. Eczema sufferers have dysfunctional skin that dries out, which can lead to cracked skin, bacterial infection, redness, scratching and itching. However, in a major medical breakthrough, wool has been found to be beneficial to the skin, providing a natural treatment for eczema that reduces the need for traditional medicines.
The science of sleep
Falling asleep may be easier than you know. These days, more than ever, it's important to invest in sleep health and get the most from your waking hours.
