For centuries, wool has been dubbed “the miracle fiber” and science has never been able to duplicate it.
The crimped structure of wool fibers create millions of air pockets that ensure an insulating layer of dry, comfortable air next to the skin.
This layer buffers the body from extreme cold or hot air, maintaining a comfortable temperature at all times. This relieves the body of thermal stress and steadies the heart rate, allowing for longer periods of deep sleep.
The top 10 reasons to sleep with wool are:
- Naturally helps control body temperature
- Wicks away moisture
- Naturally hypoallergenic
- Moisture control properties reduce bacterial growth
- Naturally molds to body contours
- Cushions pressure points, eases joint pain and improves circulation
- Reduces tossing and turning up to 80% for a deeper sleep
- More comfortable and environmentally conscious than synthetic or down materials
- Entirely natural and provides that wonderful nesting feeling during sleep
But, there’s more – during the night, the average person loses up to a pint of moisture from evaporation – the same amount found in a common 16 oz. bottle of water. This is why traditional name-brand mattresses and bedding with synthetic fabric covers often feel damp and clammy. Wool wicks away moisture, so bedding stays dry, fresh and comfortable.
The airing properties of organic materials reduce the buildup of common allergens that thrive in moist environments, such as mold, mildew and dust mites which are common to find in name-brand pillow-top mattresses. This means no more waking up with a stuffy nose, watery eyes or a raw throat.
