The Wonders of Wool

Wool, used for centuries as a natural bedding material, is becoming increasingly popular as people seek out more eco-friendly and sustainable bedding options. Sleeping in a bed layered with wool is a great investment for your sleep quality thanks to the range of benefits it offers that can improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Making the perfect bed for winter.

What you sleep on lays the foundations for a great night sleep and is as important when making your bed as the sheets you sleep between and the doona and blankets you snuggle down under (no pun intended!)

Mattress Topper also called Mattress Underlays

Mattresses are generally filled with synthetic fibres with a polyester or acrylic cover which we know is not comfortable to sleep on.  Using a mattress protector or mattress topper not only extends the life of your mattress which is after all a significant investment, by keeping it clean and providing an extra level of comfort.  But it also puts a layer of natural fibres between you and the mattress improving your comfort during the night.

Temperature regulation

One of the main benefits of sleeping on a wool mattress topper is its ability to regulate temperature. Wool is a natural insulator, which means it can help keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This makes it a great choice for people who tend to sleep hot or cold, as it can help maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night.

Wool is also able to wick away moisture from the body, which can help keep you dry and comfortable. This is especially important for people who tend to sweat during the night (and most of us sweat at least a little) as moisture can lead to discomfort and disturbed sleep.

Comfort and support

Wool is naturally soft and comfortable, and so provides a luxurious sleeping surface. A wool mattress topper can help cushion your body and provide support for your pressure points, which can help reduce pain and discomfort. This is particularly beneficial for people who suffer from arthritis, fibromyalgia, or other conditions that cause chronic pain.

Wool is also hypoallergenic, which means it is unlikely to cause allergic reactions or irritate sensitive skin. This makes it a great choice for people with allergies or skin sensitivities who may struggle to find comfortable bedding options.

Durability and sustainability

Wool is a highly durable material, which means it can withstand regular use and lasts for years. A wool mattress topper is a great investment in your sleep quality, as it can provide consistent comfort and support for years to come. Wool is also a sustainable material, as it is biodegradable and renewable. This makes it an eco-friendly choice for people who are looking to reduce their environmental impact.

Easy maintenance

A washable wool mattress topper is easy to maintain, as it can be machine washed and dried.

Reduced exposure to chemicals

Many conventional mattress toppers are made from synthetic materials that can contain harmful chemicals. These chemicals can be released into the air and absorbed by the body, which can lead to health problems over time. A washable wool mattress topper is made from natural materials that are unlikely to contain harmful chemicals, which can help reduce your exposure to toxins and improve your overall health.

Improved sleep quality

Sleeping on a wool mattress topper can lead to improved sleep quality, which can have a wide range of benefits for your overall health and wellbeing. Wool's ability to regulate temperature and wick away moisture can help create a comfortable sleeping environment that promotes restful sleep. The cushioning and support provided by a wool mattress topper can also help reduce pain and discomfort, which can lead to deeper and more restorative sleep.

In addition, wool's hypoallergenic properties can help reduce the symptoms of allergies or skin sensitivities, which can also contribute to better sleep quality. Better sleep quality can lead to improved mood, cognitive function, and overall health, making a wool mattress topper a great investment in your long-term wellbeing.
