Wool is a fascinating material that acts as a warm layer in cold weather and cools your body down when you are feeling warm. In other words, wool is a performance material of nature and is also inflammable. Wool is nature’s miracle that is a performance material making an ideal partner for horsetail hair and cotton. An optimal bed climate is enabled by the use of pure wool, which functions as a makeshift climate regulator of your bed.
For a very long time, wool has been a renowned material for its capability to remain warm in cold and vice versa. Using wool, one can sleep comfortably at an optimal temperature and remain dry. The wool fiber has been structured in a way that enables large volumes of air to position themselves in between the fibers, therefore offering impeccable insulation properties while making it flexible, elastic, and resilient. Moreover, about 30 percent of the wool’s weight in water can be absorbed by the material, without becoming wet.
Tokowool is a special blend of extra resilient, high-loft wools carefully crafted from selected sheep, that graze free-range in the beautiful New Zealand landscape, working in harmony with nature we have created this unique fiber blend. Toko in New Zealand Maori can be interpreted as "begin to move, to spring up", It is a word that encapsulates optimism and vitality. Developed especially for high-loft materials Tokowool is perfect for high-performance fillings and textiles. Tokowool has inherent properties that are literally grown in the fleece, the fiber is simply as it was formed by selecting the sheep with the most resilient, hardy and buoyant wool that we could find. No chemical, or mechanical manipulation is needed for Tokowool's superior performance.
Tokowool is created solely by nature, we have simply used the purest air, the freshest water, the cleanest soils and very special breeds of sheep to produce long lasting and exceptional high-loft wool. Tokowool is a 100% natural process, making it much more carbon efficient than similar high-bulk products.
Wools of New Zealand farms are on average 16 times larger than UK farms, this is just one reason how New Zealand farms are 28% more carbon efficient including the transport to Europe. Our testing shows that Tokowool has amazing bulk, as much as 50% more bulk than standard strong wools without any artificial manipulation.
