Is wool good for curtains?

Wool is the perfect material for curtains and blinds as it’s thermal so keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Our sustainable wool range is available in a spectrum of colours suitable for any interior type. Read on for three reasons why wool made to measure curtains and wool made to measure blinds are a great choice for your home.

sustainable wool fabric

01. Strong, bright, low maintenance fabric

Wool is a hardy fabric that can withstand extremes of temperature and humidity, so much so, it has natural fire-retardant and water resistant properties. Not only is wool tough, but it’s also clean. The natural structure of wool fibres prevents dirt from penetrating the fabric. Instead dust sits on top of the fabrics surface, which means it’s super easy to clean - - - just give it a once over with a vacuum cleaner on a low suction from time-to-time. Now that’s what we call low-maintenance!

02. Eco-Friendly and sustainable

Wool fabric has great eco-credentials - - - every year sheep produce a new fleece, making wool the ideal renewable fibre source for your curtains or blinds. Wool is also environmentally circular. When left to biodegrade, wool quickly releases key nutrients back into the earth. In view of all this (and more) in 2010 King Charles launched The Campaign For Wool to promote the environmental benefits of this eco-warrior. Since its launch there’s been a large upswing in demand for wool to use in consumer products, making sheep farming more attractive to farmers. And, slowly but surely, wool is replacing its lower performing synthetic competitors as the fabric of choice for our homes.

03. Keep warm, keep cool and keep your bills down

A thick pair of wool curtains can be the answer to lower energy bills. Wool can help insulate a room, so no need to have an expensive upgrade to double glazing! Not only can you save money on heating, by using less electricity, you will be making your home greener too. On the flip side, wool can also keep a cool room cool. But how can one fabric do both? The secret lies in the tiny pockets of air within each wool fibre that can provide both insulation and breathability. By choosing a Stitched wool based fabric for your curtains and blinds, you get a higher performance product that’s good for the environment and looks great - - - it’s a no brainer!
