08 Jun Friday Files – Here’s winter – think WOOL
With the start of winter, Australian Interiors need to be considerate of the cold weather. Many parts of the country face the extremities of the season, and it is important to factor in material considerations. The vast benefits of wool, apart from its robustness and warmth, include its flexibility, strength, flame retardant quality, sound absorption, hypoallergenic nature, easy cleaning and its natural water resistance.
