Natural fibres like wool provide a better night’s sleep because they’re soft, springy and naturally breathable, providing comfort, support and also helping to regulate your body temperature naturally.
Sleep better and longer
Studies show that people sleeping with wool beds and bedding have a lower heart rate, less sleep disturbance, and increased duration of beneficial REM sleep. Wool naturally thermo-regulates and is remarkably comfortable in all seasons, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.
British wool is a great choice in a mattress because it’s springy and resilient. When used as a layer in a mattress, the fibres knit together, creating a secure, stable and supportive layer without any hollow areas or ‘bare spots’.
Naturally safe and hypoallergenic
Wool is naturally fire-resistant – it’s difficult to ignite and doesn’t melt, drip or give out poisonous fumes like some synthetic materials.
Wool also contributes to a healthier indoor environment by helping remove pollutants and allergens from the air and temporarily trapping dust and allergens which can aggravate allergies. Wool is naturally resistant to mould and mildew because it quickly absorbs and releases moisture, which prevents the damp conditions that mould and mildew needs to thrive. Additionally, wool fibre’s ability to absorb and desorb moisture inhibits dust mites, creating an environment too dry for them to survive.
These natural benefits mean that wool is considered one of the safest choices for interior products and furnishings.
