It Is Sleep Week and Wool Is The Answer to A Good Night’s Sleep!

The internet is a buzz with tons of advice and products to help you get a good night’s sleep. And I find it fascinating that all kinds of synthetic products are being peddled describing “new” technologies to help keep you stay cool while you sleep, or provide unique support for your head and body. But in addition to the costs to the health of our planet of making these cooling gels, foams, microfibers and plastics, are they really the answer to a good night’s sleep?

These products are trying to solve a problem that Wool Fibers have solved naturally for literally, thousands of years! No synthetic product has ever been able to replicate all of the unique natural qualities of wool for all natural bedding.

Why would you choose to sleep on plastic -- when the perfect 100% natural solution has been around for thousands of years!

Our 100% Natural Sleep Solution: Wool!

Why Wool? It Breathes!

We like the 10,000-year-old technology of wool, the all-natural renewable fiber that wicks away moisture, keeps you warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and helps to naturally regulate your body temperature so you can get a good night’s sleep.

Wool Bedding brings deeper, more refreshing sleep!

A good night’s sleep is essential to health and well-being, and the key to sleeping well is maintaining a comfortable body temperature. Your body continually regulates your temperature as you sleep. If you get too hot, you perspire to cool down.

Synthetic fibers and feathers do not breathe. 

Synthetic and down bedding traps perspiration next to your skin causing you to go from hot and sweaty, to chilled, as the air starts to evaporate the moisture. These temperature swings signal your heart to work harder. You toss and turn, adjust your covers, use precious energy and your sleep is disturbed.

Wool is the only fiber that breathes.

Surrounding yourself in all natural wool bedding helps you maintain an even temperature. During the night, wool absorbs perspiration and wicks it away. Your heart rate stays low. Your sleep is undisturbed. During the day, the absorbed moisture is slowly released back into the air. You’ll have a dry bed each evening, and the lack of moisture in your bedding means an inhospitable place for dust mites, bed bugs, mold and mildew. Down and synthetics simply cannot offer this dry condition.

Wool is Cost-Effective

Wool fibers last longer than down and synthetics. Excessive moisture levels breaks down synthetic fibers after about 10 years. With wool bedding you won’t need to replace it for decades (if ever!). Hand it down to your kids and grandkids!
