The Benefits of Wool Bedding for a Better Night's Sleep

Are you looking for a way to get better sleep? Wool bedding might be the answer! Unlike synthetic materials, wool is incredibly breathable and temperature-regulating. It's no wonder that more people are turning to this natural fiber when it comes time to buy new bedding products. But what exactly are the benefits of wool bedding? What types should you look out for? And how do you take care of them properly? 

Benefits of Wool Bedding

Wool bedding is the perfect choice for a comfortable night's sleep. It regulates temperature, wicks away moisture, and is more breathable than synthetic or down materials. Here are some of the benefits of wool bedding that make it an ideal option for your bedroom:

Temperature Regulation: Wool fibers have natural air pockets which trap heat in cold weather and release it when temperatures rise. This helps keep you warm in winter and cool during summer months. Additionally, wool fibers absorb body heat from your skin to create a pleasant sleeping environment all year round.

Moisture Wicking: Wool absorbs up to 30% of its weight in water without feeling damp or clammy against your skin. This makes it great for people who tend to sweat at night as it will help keep them dry and comfortable throughout the night.  This also helps to keep the bed dry and free from allergens.  

Breathability: The unique structure of wool fibers allows air to pass through easily, making it highly breathable compared to other materials like synthetics or down fillings. This helps reduce humidity levels inside your bedroom while also providing superior ventilation so you can stay cool even on hot nights.

Types of Wool Bedding Products

Wool bedding products are a great way to add comfort and luxury to your home. From mattress toppers and pads to pillows and comforters, blankets and throws, there's something for everyone.

Mattress Toppers: Mattress toppers provide an extra layer of cushioning on top of your existing mattress. Wool mattress pads offer superior temperature regulation as well as moisture-wicking capabilities that keep you cool in the summer months and warm in the winter months.

Pillows & Comforters: Pillows made from wool provide excellent neck support due their natural contouring properties which helps alleviate pain caused by poor posture during sleep. Wool comforters are filled with soft wool fibers that trap air inside them creating a cozy atmosphere perfect for snuggling up under when it gets cold outside.

Blankets & Throws: Wool blankets come in various weights depending on how much warmth you want them to provide; some are light enough for use all year round while others can be used during colder weather conditions. Throws made from wool also make great decorative pieces around the house adding texture and color without taking up too much space in bedrooms or living rooms.

How to Care for Your Wool Bedding

Taking proper care of your wool bedding is easy, and your bedding may indeed last generations and become a family heirloom.  Wool naturally resists dirt and dust, is antimicrobial, and air circulates through it, so it does not need to be washed between uses. We recommend using machine-washable all-natural duvet covers and pillow protectors to protect your comforter and pillows from accidental spills. If a spill occurs on the bedding, you may spot clean the spill with a clean cotton cloth and natural soap and water. 

To clean and sanitize your bedding, place it in the sun every few months. If you prefer, you may bring it to a professional dry cleaner who uses a non-toxic, chemical free method (either a non agitating wet-clean or CO2 process), but be sure to advise your cleaners that the fibers are natural wool.


When it comes to choosing the best bedding for a good night's sleep, wool bedding is an excellent choice. Not only does it regulate your temperature and wick away moisture, but its breathability makes it superior to synthetics or down.  And with proper care and maintenance, your wool bedding will last for years to come!
