Wool is the only fiber that will retain heat even when wet. This wool still has the natural lanolin, which helps make it a bit water-retardant, as well. Lanolin also makes the wool soft and gentle to the skin, not scratchy! Lanolin is used in most cosmetics and moisturizers.
Must be hand washed in cold water, and laid flat to dry.
