Here at The Lounging Hound, we LOVE everything about WOOL! Find out why….
It’s 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable. It’s inherently dirt resistant and odour repellent. It keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. It’s comfortable and it’s beautiful. Can you tell we’re wild about wool?
All our wool products (throws, sofa toppers, spotted cushions, door stops, draught excluders and toy bones – yes we really do like wool) carry the prestigious Woolmark logo. Find out more at the Woolmark Company website.
Good for Pets….
Not surprisingly, The Lounging Hound owner Natalie is a huge fan of wool. “I think some people are put off wool because they think of it as a fabric that is hard to clean and just made for luxury,” she says. “But that’s not the case at all. It really is easy to care for, hugely durable and great for pets as it works with them rather than against them in terms of keeping them warm or cool and not absorbing their odour.”
Much of the fabric used in The Lounging Hound’s products is supplied by two of the oldest wool mills in Britain. Hainsworth, who makes the wool for our plain throws and toy bones, has been weaving wool since 1783 and has the widest looms left in the country. Moon, established in 1837 and one of the UK’s last remaining vertical wool mills, produces the fabric for our multispot cushions and waterproof throws.
