BBC NEWS | Heated wool offers cosy feet

BBC NEWS | Heated wool offers cosy feet: "A 'smart wool' that can be heated has been developed by a New Zealand-based company, Canesis Network, in conjunction with an Australian woolgrowers' company, Australian Wool Innovation.

It works by using a conductive fibre which is blended with ordinary wool.

When the 'smart' woollen yarn is knitted together, it creates a bed of interconnected fibres with enough resistance to be heated, while retaining all the properties of wool.

'We think that the technology we have here is the first time it's really been integrated into the textile,' said Stewart Collie, science manager at Canesis's Smart Textile Innovation Centre.
The first product, socks that can be heated, should be on the UK market by early next year. "

Really great blog! I noticed a mention about alternative medicine arthritis . I thought you might be interested to hear that both my parents and several of their friends have had problems with arthritis and we have been very lucky to have come across Bioflow. They are sold at alternative medicine arthritis and they have been worth every penny. They don't seem to work for everyone but they have helped reduce the pain in my parents arthritis so that they almost don't notice it any longer. They'd still be taking painkillers if it wasn't for wearing a Bioflow on their wrist
