Fjällräven loves wool. It’s arguably one of nature’s most functional materials. And you’re most likely aware of its ability to keep you warm by trapping air between its fibres. But did you know that, strictly speaking, wool isn’t an insulator? It’s a heat regulator. This is because it can help you keep your cool as well as keep you warm and cosy. Wool wicks away moisture from your body. And when it does so, it takes odours with it. Finally, because of the structure of the fibres, wool keeps you warm even when it’s damp. And depending on the size of the fibres, wool clothing can be really thin, not to mention durable and comfortable. Fjällräven use lots of different types of wool, including spill or surplus wool from their suppliers in Italy and wool sourced from sheep in Sweden.
