A story of sheep

The filling of the cushions is made entirely of Manex sheep’s wool from the Basque Country.

550,000 sheep in the Basque Country

This wool is a renewable resource from Manech redheaded (53%), Manech blackheaded (21%) and Basco-Béarnaise (18%) ewes, most of which are raised for their milk. The dairy basin and its PDO for the production of Ossau-Iraty are located in the Atlantic Pyrenees, with 85% of the farms in the Basque Country.

In the 2019 mowing season, only 340 tons were collected. Approximately 860 tons remained on the farms. Fleeces are no longer exploited in favor of synthetic materials almost exclusively based on petroleum.

100% natural

Wool is produced by living organisms for a specific purpose: to protect them from bad weather, heat and cold. It grows naturally without the help of man.

Naturally breathable

Because of its porous structure, wool fiber is one of the most breathable. Hollow, it can absorb up to 30% of its mass in moisture without looking wet, and can release it easily.

Fireproof

The inherent chemical structure of wool makes it naturally non-flammable, which is why this natural fiber is a must for upholstery and textiles. In addition, and unlike other materials (cotton, nylon, polyester ..), wool does not melt and does not stick to the skin.

100% renewable

Over the centuries and through domestication, sheep have lost their ability to shed their fleeces. Thus, every year, wool grows on these sheep, forcing us to shear them. On average, a Manech fleece weighs about 2 kilos in wool.

Thermoregulator

Wool adapts to temperature changes. It allows you to stay warm when it’s cold, and to stay cool as soon as temperatures rise. Many studies have shown the benefits of wool on sleep and on the regulation of body temperature.

Air purifier

All paints, glues and synthetic materials release molecules that are harmful to health such as formaldehyde. The wool allows to absorb these volatile organic molecules, cleaning the surrounding air. She takes care of us!

100% biodegradable

When discarded, if the wool is kept in a warm, moist environment or buried in the soil, bacterial or fungal colonies will develop. These produce enzymes that digest the wool. The wool thus gives back to the soil nitrogen, sulfur and magnesium, which are used to feed the plants.

Anti-odour

The hygroscopic properties of the fiber allow it to absorb a large amount of moisture and odors.

Resilient and resistant

Its wrinkle-free character, reflects its mechanical properties and its resistance. This is a necessary quality for upholstery as it will return to its original shape after applying stress. Even if the wool can settle or felts, it can be carded over and over again to give it back its original bulk.
