Textiles is a broad term for items created out of raw materials. In our case, it includes yarns, roving, blankets, and apparel that are made out of natural products such as wool, alpaca, and cotton. We avoid synthetic products as being uncomfortable on skin and bad for the environment.
In the near future, we are going to be offering wool batts that can be made into pillows or used in quilting. More professionals are hailing wool as a preferable stuffing for pillows and bedding since it equalizes temperature, and is hypoallergenic. While people complain of the "itch" from wool, in most cases it is from sub-grade course wool or the abrasive and caustic chemicals used in commercial mills. Meduseld uses organic cleaners for our wool, and the mill uses gentle cleaners since the mill owner has sensitive skin.
You will notice these differences in Meduseld products. Email us for a free yarn sample card!
