With or without decorative stitching - as you like it

For more self-love with Lastofa Forte
We believe that love for one's self and self-esteem are the force to achieve personal goals. Even in the field of therapy for chronic diseases, such as lipoedema or lymphoedema, a large portion of self-love is needed to be able to master the challenges every day anew.
In our opinion, self-love is also the origin of self-management, which has been increasingly demanded and promoted for years. We explain what is behind this term in the article "Lipoedema and Self-Management".
There are many ways and methods to draw new courage - for example, the exchange in self-help groups, a photo shoot or an appearance in front of a larger audience. We have written this down for you in our courage stories.

This is what merino wool can do
Merino sheep came to Australia and New Zealand with European settlers. Today, these two countries are the main suppliers of merino wool. The climate in these regions has a great share in the wool quality and positive properties, which are:
The body temperature of sheep is kept constantly by the wool - no matter whether it is warm in summer or cold in winter. Merino wool can compensate for these large fluctuations because it consists of up to 85% air. The merino fibers are also crimped - up to 40 times per centimeter. This creates air pockets between the fibers that insulate body heat and keep it at a constant level. So when people talk about wool being warm, they mean that it retains heat and thus keeps the body warm.
Merino wool feels comfortable - even when damp. This is because it can absorb large amounts of water vapor without feeling damp. This is a great effect, especially in summer: when the outside temperature is warm, the material dries faster and a kind of evaporative cooling is created. This, together with the insulating air chambers, cools the skin pleasantly and protects against heat from outside.
Merino wool is also dirt-repellent and smell-inhibiting - unlike many synthetic fibers, which quickly begin to smell unpleasant. This is due to the scale-like surface of merino wool: bacteria which are responsible for smell are less likely to settle there. Sweat is also chemically bound and can therefore be neutralized for longer. Merino wool is therefore less susceptible to smell and dirt.
