Although not organic, World Class Wool has many of the same attributes, including a high standard of cleanliness, loft and resiliency. No chemicals, pesticides or herbicides have been used in the processing of this wool.
Wool is extremely long-lasting and can bend thousands of times without losing form. It's water resistant - moisture is wicked to the inner surface of wool fibers which allows it to feel dry even while holding 30% of its weight in water. Wool is also temperature-regulating, completely natural, and 100% bio-degradable. Wool can also naturally pass flame tests used in the bedding industry without the addition of chemical flame retardants. It resists mildew and mold, and wool bedding reduces and discourages dust mites.
Processing: After the wool is purchased it goes to a cleaning facility, or scouring plant. At the scouring plant, the wool is washed according to special requests which include using a specific soap that is known to be the mildest, most biodegradable soap available. In addition, the scour train is slowed so that the wool is more thoroughly cleaned and rinsed. The wool is carefully inspected to be sure that it meets the highest standards. It is then dried and baled to ship for garneting and processing. Each bale is tested before leaving the facility to make sure it meets standards.
