The Science of Sleeping in Wool
Wool regulates your body temperature unlike any other material, so you won’t feel too hot or too cold, allowing you to sleep longer and better.
- Keeps you cool in the summer & warm in the winter
- Regulates body moisture, especially beneficial to people who sweat during the night
- Isolates motion transfer
- Promotes healthy posture during sleep through the unique way the springy wool fibers support the body weight – distributing weight evenly and away from pressure points, relieving pain in joints and soothing aching muscles, better than any other natural or synthetic material
- Naturally flame resistant, making it the only material not required, by law, to be treated with flame retardants
- Naturally dust mite resistant
- Naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial
- Helps you avoid chemicals that may be harmful even if ‘declared as safe’
- Suitable for people with MCS and other chemical sensitivities
- Reduces exposure to VOCs in your home – wool has no off-gassing and zero VOCs. As we spent increasing amounts of time indoors we increase our exposure to VOCs. Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are substances formed from a combination of chemical elements which easily become vapors or gases. VOCs are released from many products found in our homes – not only solvents, paints, and thinners but also in furnishing with synthetic or dyed, bleached or otherwise treated with chemicals materials.
- Increased fire safety in your home – Wool used in furnishing items can provide a greater level of fire safety in your home. Wool does not flame, does not melt like nylon and polyester. It can slow down combustion and flame spread in bed linens and furnishings, even when other fibers are also involved.
- Biodegradable, sustainable, renewable material
- Diminishes Body Odor – Most synthetic fibers actually increase body odor because they create a breeding ground for bacteria. Wool’s unique structure means that it won’t allow the build-up of body odors so you can keep wearing those same socks for days on end.
- Durable – Its durability and strength come from the fact that the fibres can be bent back on themselves 20,000 times before breaking (to put this into context cotton breaks after 3,200 bends and rayon fibres only last 75 times!)
All of our fabrics are natural and highly breathable to allow you to enjoy the full benefits of the wool inside.
