In its natural state on the sheep or after shearing but before any cleaning, it is very waterproof because of the lanolin (a waxy substance produced by the sheep's sebaceous glands) it contains. After the lanolin is removed, either by lengthy washing or industiral processes, the wool will absorb water quite readily; it can take on fully one-third of its own weight in water.

Any type of certain fiber, such as cotton or flax, prepared after a special process. Also, a sheep/lamb/goat's hair. I would say that the word "wool" refers to fiber made fr…om sheep's fleece (or hair). Other animals fur can be used to make yarns, but then they most often would be referred to in different words. For example: mohair is from the angora goatalpaca is from the alpacaangora is from a rabbitcashmere is from the cashmere goatgivuit comes from the artic musk oxcamel is from a camel In addition to yarns made from animal hair/fiber/pelts/fleeces, there are Vegetable fibers: cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, to name a few. There would also be manmade yarns, such as: acrylic, nylon, polyester, and spandex. Yarns that wouldn't easily be categorized in the above manner, would include silk, and a newly manufactured yarn made from soybeans (soy milk), and milk! Yes, I said milk--the best description of the process is like when you make cotton candy, when you put the cone into the spinning cotton candy and roll it around to get the candy on the cone.
You could get wool by shearing a sheep. Wool is like the hair of a sheep.
Wool is called fleece when it starts. You shear it off of a lamb or sheep. This is done once or twice a year, depending on the type of sheep and where they live. Shearing is j…ust a short hair cut for the sheep, and if it is done correctly, it doesn't harm the sheep at all. After the fleece is cut off the sheep, it is washed, dried, combed out (carded), then spun into wool yarn or thread. White wool can be dyed to get many different colors. This can all be done by machines or by hand.
Any mascara that says "water proof" on the side - usually is waterproof! Try Clinique, Covergirl, Avon, Maybelline, Lancome... ect. These water proof mascaras are best r…emoved by 'makeup remover liquid or cleansing cloths.
Simply by closing all the gaps that are there. And if you're wonder how they waterproof things like Mp3 players and mobiles. They just put special water-proof paste inbetween …the gaps. Or push the two sides where the gaps are with rubber inbetween them, pushed with high-pressure and then also glued with special water-proofed glue.
Natural 100% wool has many waterproof qualities without any treatment, based on the lanolin contained in the fibre. You could discuss addition additional waterproofing capabi…lities to a garment with your local dry cleaner.
Wool comes from sheep, goats, rabbits, yaks, llamas, and alpacas.
The truth is, not all waterproof mascaras are effective. The best and most effective ones would probably be GreatLash Waterproof mascara, and on the more high-end side, YSL ma…scara. Hope this helped!
after is is cut it must be cleaned to make it water proff
well there's a little ring in front of the bearings
The solution cannot be dissolved in water (insoluble in water). That's why to clean your hands really well you must use soap because it can dissolve the oils.
Because that way it won`t loss the water it has already
waterproof glue is waterproof because of the zinc and iron that is inside of it; thay react to create an almost water resistant barrier.
Wool is from Australia.
