Wool has an amazing ability to absorb moisture from the atmosphere; nearly 30% of its weight without feeling damp.

It’s this moisture absorption that keeps static buildup below annoying ‘blue-arc’ levels. However, wool also acts like a natural air conditioner absorbing

moisture during periods of high humidity and releasing it when conditions are dry. During periods of extreme dryness, such as during the middle of winter when windows are closed and heaters run, this moisture releasing property, on occasion, may temporarily compromise wools ability to completely eliminate noticeable static build-up. Misting with distilled or ionized water will help dramatically and as soon as temperatures warm and heater use diminishes, noticeable static build-up will disappear.
