Having talked to Toklat at product shows I have learned that they make the
woolback material in a blend only. Toklat is the maker of Woolback and
Coolback materials and pads made from those materials. I don't know if
there are any other manufacturers of these type products since Toklat is
the #1 horse product supplier.
Anyway the blends do not crush or bunch up into little knots like 100%
wool fleece does. 100% wool fleece will bunch up and lose it's loft after
some time. The polyester being non-absorbant allows liquids to wick away
more quickly. Faster liquid transfer tranlates into a cooler surface
against the back of the animal. Hope this helps.
