The recording can be up to 33% of the dry weight amount of wool, without that it feels damp. It also wicks moisture off much faster than for example the much-used cotton. As woolen goods (relative to their total volume) of up to 85% air exist, they are good thermal insulators: the little body heat escapes. Colloquially, it is said, therefore, that good wool "warm", although wool itself actually only reflects the heat radiation of the body. Beds made of wool by the cause contraction and expansion of the hair independently adjusting the air flow to the temperature conditions of the environment. Therefore, wool beds in a position to absorb a lot of human sweat and the air quickly leave.
