Wool is superior to all other fibers in its ability to handle body moisture in both warm and cool environments. The porosity of the cells in the outer layers of wool fiber allows them to quickly and efficiently absorb and evaporate moisture. In fact, the fibers can absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture — ten times as much as any synthetic fiber — without feeling damp or clammy. The porous structure also explains why wool is such a good thermal insulator, not to mention the mesh of the fibers, which creates millions of air pockets that further help to regulate temperature and humidity.

Wool is a naturally strong fiber. It can bend back on itself 20,000 times without breaking. Compare this to cotton at 3,200 times. Due to its unique chemical structure and natural moisture content, wool is naturally fire-resistant. And despite its natural moisture content, wool’s dry, porous nature repels mildew and dust mites. Lanolin is the smelly pale-yellow natural oil found on sheep’s wool. It is natural water repellent — the function of which, as it’s not too hard to guess, is to waterproof the sheep, also has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties that protect the sheep’s skin from infection.

Benefits of Wool Mattress Protectors:

  • Environmentally sustainable
  • Breathable
  • Wick moisture away from the body
  • Regulate body temperature
  • Naturally hypoallergenic
  • Dust mite resistant
  • Mildew resistant
  • No nasty chemicals
  • Promotes peaceful sleep

*Please note, that there is a joining seam along the width of the KING and CAL KING sized protectors, because the width of the fabric is 59″. We chose to make the seam along the width, because it could be placed at the level of your knees / feet or at the level of your head and under your pillow, so it would not be disturbing. If requested, we could make the seam along the length of the protector, right through the middle of it.

If we don’t have in our shop what you’re looking for, please contact us and tell us what is it that you desire. We can customize fabric, size, style.

We are so glad you stopped by our store! Thank you!

    The best mattress protector, without question. The wool resists spills long enough for a very casual walk for a towel, and is dense enough to be impermeable to whatever sleeper may shed in the night. And it passes my good-as-new-after-a-trip-through-the-wash longevity and maintenance tests. 🙂

    Haven’t used it yet, but the quality is nice and–given that it was coming from halfway around the globe–I received it fairly quickly too.

    Rosica was great to work with. I had some questions about shipping to the US and she was quick to respond. My items shipped quickly and arrived safe and sound. The puddle pads are beautifully made and we can’t wait to try them out. We’re still waiting for our little one to arrive so I’ll try to post a follow up review once we’ve been able to actually use them, wash them etc.

    I call this; the insurance policy for the mattress. My (potty training) toddler has already had two accidents on it but the wool cover completely protects the precious mattress!

    Great pads and the best part of it that its natural material and works great. I wouldn’t say that its waterproof though! Both of my kids had a wet accidents on their new mattresses and the wool pads got soaked thru and at the same time they were highly absorbent but together with additional cotton zip off cover that i purchased to protect the mattresses from wear and tear it worked great. I had to wash the pads and the covers but mattresses didn’t get wet at all. As of for the quality of the products, they are very well made and meet all of my expectations and more. Customer service was great, have no complains! Very responsive and helpful. Would highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates the natural products, high quality and definitely go back and purchase more products. Great job “TheHomeOfWool”!!

    This is my second purchase and I couldn’t be happier. These wool mattress protectors really do work against potty accidents. I love that they are so soft and comfy instead of the typical plastic mattress protector. If you’re thinking of buying, do not hesitate! Thank you Home of Wool for another great product!

    I have been looking for something like this for a long time. At first I thought I might not buy it because it took a long time to arrive from overseas. However, as I explored around I was not able to find anything that seemed it would be as lovely. So I pulled the trigger and ordered it and I could not be more happy about that. It was worth every moment of waiting. This is one of the most beautiful, luxurious while at the same time simple, valuable items I own. I love it.

    Took a long time to receive, but within the time quoted. I ADORE this mattress pad, but lanolinizing this pad didn’t work as I hoped. Once I’d dissolved the lanolin in the hot water, I added it to the water I was soaking the pad in (not HOT as the directions suggested). Later, when I took the pad out of the water, the lanolin had clumped. Hopefully it still ends up repelling liquids.

    This is a great quality item and the experience with Home of Wool has been pleasant and professional. Looking forward to receiving my custom sized protector!

  • Q. Can you make every item in a custom size and shape? 

We make all of our items to order so we can make all of them in the size & shape you need.
Just drop us a message to let us know what dimensions you’d like.
There are limitations in terms of weight and size for international packages, but most items will fit in them.

  • Q. What is the make time for your products? 

We usually make smaller items in 2-5 days and larger items in 7-10 days. We will send you a tracking number as soon as we dispatch your order.

  • What is the delivery time of your products? 

Packages that weigh 4 pounds or less, such as protectors, chair cushions, bassinet mattresses, take 8-10 days to deliver to any country.

Larger items take 8-12 days to most countries in Europe, 2-3 weeks outside Europe, and up to 4 weeks for some remote areas like islands.

The Christmas holidays are a busy time at the posts and some packages may be delayed, but not necessarily. Sometimes we’ve had deliveries taking up to 5 weeks, in December and January.

In the first few days to a week, you will see one of the following updates on the tracking – “Preparing order for shipment”, “Processed Through Facility”, “Insert item into bag”, “Receive item at office of exchange”.

  • What shipping method do you use? 

We use registered mail so you will have a tracking number to follow the package and a signature will be required to collect it. If you’re not home they will leave you a note so you can pick it up from the post office. They normally keep it for 2 weeks, but I would advise strongly that you keep an eye on the tracking so you know when it arrives, because we have cases where the postman doesn’t leave a note at the door even though they attempted delivery.

  • Where do I track my package? 

We use registered mail so you will have a tracking number to follow the package.

You can track your package here:  http://www.track-trace.com by placing your tracking number at the empty field against Post/EMS(with USPS).

The first update means that your package has LEFT Bulgaria on the shown date.

The next update will become available only after the package enters your country, no updates in the meanwhile (5-15 days, depending on your country and size of order)

You may contact us if your package has not entered your country in 20-25 days. We cannot speed up the delivery, but we can issue an official query to the post to try to locate the package.

Lost packages are extremely rare in our experience.


  • Q. How much does it cost to have a custom item made? 

We calculate the price depending to the size of the item, your choice of fabric for the cover, and the amount of the wool filling.

  • Q. How does a wool mattress feel? 

We realize that it is difficult to describe how a wool mattress feels and give advice, because comfort is mostly a matter of personal preference.
All wool mattresses are softer during the first 2-3 months of use while the wool compresses. After that they could be described as mid-firm to firm. You do not sink deep into the mattress. Still, wool mattresses could not be compared to any other type of mattress because of the unique way wool fibers manage to support our body weight. Wool mattresses give you a completely new experience of comfort and are unique in how they regulate your body temperature. And you really start to sleep tighter and longer.
You may read the reviews from our clients here.

  • Q. What base should I use for a wool mattress? 

Wool mattresses perform best on solid flat surfaces. Slatted frames are also good but should have no more than 2″ distance between the slats so the mattress will not sag in the openings.

  • Q. Is tufting simply decorative? 

As beautiful as tufting is, it is in fact a structural part of the cushion. It is intended to keep the wool filling in place. Thus there is a thread connecting the ‘buttons’ on both sides of the cushion. If you want to remove the wool filling to machine wash the cover, you need to snip all tufts and re-sew them after. We include a needle and thread with all tufted items.

  • Q. How should I choose the best cover fabric for my item? 

Click on the link next to each fabric to find more information about it and a close-up photo for the color and texture.

Linen is the most dirt repellent and one of the most durable. The higher the linen content, the more durable and easy to keep clean the fabric is.This makes items in linen suitable to be used directly on the floor. Linen is great for outdoor use as well.

Wool is the most mildew-resistant one. It is the best in regulating body temperature and moisture, so you’re never too cold or too hot, and prevents you from sweating.

Silk is the strongest of natural fibers and is the best for items that will be touching the skin on your face, like pillow cases.

All of our fabrics are 100% natural and thus offer high moisture absorption and breathability. They are all soft to the touch but not overly soft as chemically treated fabrics.

  • Q. Are wool-filled items suitable for outdoor use? 

Wool-filled items are perfect for outdoor use. By nature, wool was intended to be outside (on sheep). However, they need to be protected from direct rain. Because this will soak the entire filling and make the fibers stick and form lumps. Random splashes will be ok, for example by a pool.

  • Q. Should I buy a protector or a zippered cover for my item? 

It is always a good investment to get a slipcover as it will keep your mattress fresh as new for much longer. We make our slipcovers with 3-sides long zippers.
Another option would be to have a mattress protector under your sheets. We make 100% wool mattress protectors . The disadvantage of the mattress protector is that it protects only the top side of the mattress (which would be enough if you are going to place your mattress on a bed frame, but not enough if you are going to place it directly on the floor); and the advantage is that it gives you an additional layer of thick wool to sleep on right beneath your sheets.

  • Q. Are the materials you use organic? 

Our fabrics are completely natural, free of any chemicals, bleaches and dyes (except the fabrics with stripes), and the crops have not been treated with pesticides and fungicides.
However they are not “certified organic”.
We do offer Oeko-Tex certified fabrics you can see here:

● 100% Cotton (heavyweight, unbleached, Oeko-tex certified)
● 62% Linen / 38% Cotton blend (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Linen (from flax, Oeko-Tex certified)
 100% Linen (flax) with multiple blue stripes (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Linen (flax) with 2 blue stripes (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Linen (flax) with red stripes (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Linen (flax) with thin red stripes (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Linen (flax) with thin grey stripes (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Linen (flax) with 3 grey stripes (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Linen (flax) with black stripes (Oeko-Tex certified)
● 100% Cotton (Oeko-tex certified, unbleached, mediumweight)
● 59% Linen / 41% Cotton (Oeko-Tex certified)

The certificate shows that the fabric is tested for harmful substances and meets certain human-ecological requirements of the standard presently established for baby articles.

  • Q. What is lanolizing? 

Lanolin is nature’s way of waterproofing wool, and one of the reasons wool covers actually work! Lanolizing the wool restores the natural lanolin on the wool fibers that is being washed off from the water and soap.

Lanolizing instructions:

  1. Begin with dry, clean wool (the mattress protectors are machine washable at wool program with a detergent for wool).
  2. Draw a pan/bucket/sink of lukewarm water. Hot water will felt and shrink wool.
  3. Take a separate cup of very hot water, add a pea size of pure lanolin. Stir to dissolve. Dissolving well is very important to avoid sticky spots on the wool.
  4. Once well dissolved add to the sink of lukewarm water and mix well.
  5. Add your wool, soaking it through with the lukewarm, lanolin-rich bath. Let sit for a minimum of 3 hours to overnight.
  6. When it is time to dry the protector gently squeeze the fabric. Hang it and let it dry
