HEALTH BENEFITS

Science is showing that – as well as being a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre – wool bedding and sleepwear appear to promote a better night’s sleep, and fine wool knitwear can assist people that suffer from particular types of skin conditions.

Consistent with earlier science findings, the early results from a study undertaken by the University of Sydney, Australia, are showing that wool sleeping apparel and bedding increases total sleep time, promotes sleep onset and improves sleep efficiency.

In hot (29° Celsius) conditions, wearing wool sleepwear saw participants in the study sleep significantly longer, reflecting faster sleep onset and waking up less frequently. In both cold (17° Celsius) and neutral (22° Celsius) conditions, the combination of wool sleepwear and bedding saw participants have a more efficient sleep compared to when tested using non-wool sleepwear and bedding.

Purchasing un-dyed wool may be less expensive than purchasing pre-dyed wool is. Dyeing wool also allows you to create your own colors for whatever your needs are.

10 Steps to Dyeing Wool Fabric

You can dye wool fabrics in pleasing colors, which allows you to dye a just little wool or more if needed.

1. Select the Fabric

You can begin by finding a wool fabric that works for your project at hand. Fabric is available by the yard, by the bolt, or as remnants, and you can also dye neutrally-colored manufactured wool items, such as blankets or clothing.

2. Select a Color

You can dye wool fabric a single color, or you can dye several pieces of wool in different colors. Once you choose a color palette, seek dyes designed for wool dyeing and choose an acid dye specifically manufactured for dyeing natural fabrics, such as wool or silk. You can find these dyes in local craft stores, as well as online.

3. Gather Materials

In order to successfully dye wool, you must gather several materials, including wool,acid dye, Jet-Dry (which prepares the wool for dyeing), a large pot or tub, rubber gloves,tongs, protective clothing and surface coverings, vinegar, measuring cups and spoons, and non-iodized table salt.

4. Soak the Wool

After gathering materials, fill the pot with hot water and add three tablespoons of Jet-Dry. Add the wool to the pot and carefully squeeze the wool to ensure it is completely wet throughout the fabric. Then, allow it to soak for 30 minutes.

5. Heat the Water

Next, fill the large pot with water and 1 tablespoon of non-iodized salt, which helps to distribute the dye color evenly throughout the wool. Make sure to bring the pot to a simmer, not to a boil.

6. Mix the Dye

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for mixing the dye, mixing the colors of dye as necessary to create the appropriate shade.

7. Dye the Wool

Add the dye to the pot and mix it. Then, add the soaked wool. Stir when adding, as well as occasionally throughout the dying process to create a deeper shade. Cover the pot and allow it to simmer for 30 minutes.

8. Set the Color

Uncover the pot and add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of white vinegar, which sets the color into the fabric. Stir the pot to distribute the vinegar evenly and cover it to allow it to simmer for an additional 30 minutes. This creates colorfast wool.

9. Finish Soaking and Rinse the Wool

Turn off the stove, leaving the pot colored to allow the wool to soak overnight. The next day, remove the wool from the pot and gently squeeze out any excess moisture. Put the wool in an empty washing machine and run the rinse and spin cycle.

10. Dry the Wool

Put the wool in the dryer with a fluffy towel and a fabric softener sheet on medium heat and tumble the wool until it dries. Finally, remove the wool from the dryer and use it or fold it to put away for later use.
