Interior design doesn’t immediately come to mind when thinking about the many uses for wool. Suiting and knitwear seem most obvious, of course, given the ways in which we wear those garments year-round.

With its luxurious finish, easy-to-care-for nature and health properties, wool is the natural choice for any interior.
