The designer told Inhabitat how felt in Britain is currently underused – in fact, a lot of it is currently wasted since it is naturally coarser and not in demand. It’s great to see a designer making good use and adding design value to the local, sustainable material. Wool is naturally flame retardant, breathable, durable, and elastic. It is also a multi-climatic material, meaning it is warm when the environment is cold and cool when it’s warm outside.
