The core of the wool fiber can absorb up to a third of its own weight in moisture. Only when wool is saturated with more than 60% of its own weight, it becomes wet to the touch. That is why wool, even when it is quite damp, still contains enough air “pockets” to insulate well. The moisture-wicking effect of the fibers helps to get the wetness away from the body and keep it warm.
