Wool product information

Wool mattress toppers

Mattress toppers are designed to extend the life of your mattress, fitting snuggly between your bottom sheet and mattress. Wool mattress toppers are a flexible and affordable way to add an additional layer of comfort to your bed, also helping to lengthen the life of your mattress or even revitalise an old mattress.

Warm in winter, cool in summer

Wool is a fibre with the ability to breathe, so it makes a very effective natural temperature regulator, helping to keep you cool when you are warm and vice versa.

Synthetic materials are not naturally breathable, which makes them unable to adapt to your changing body temperature during sleep. So mattresses made of synthetic materials, such as memory foam, will radiate heat back up into the body. A wool mattress topper is ideal for use with all types of mattresses, and can be used over a synthetic mattress to disperse body heat, spreading it before it penetrates a heat reflecting mattress.

An extra layer of comfort

A mattress topper with a soft, flexible filling, such as wool, will make a big difference to your comfort level in bed and provides additional support whilst you sleep. A topper is also a flexible and affordable option to add an extra layer of comfort to sofa beds or guest beds, providing extra thickness and support.

A topper can also help if you suffer from back or joint pain, as it provides a soft layer beneath your body, with the additional support of your mattress underneath.

Wool mattress toppers are easy to fit, often with broad elasticated straps on each corner. They’re also easy to care for, simply turn your mattress topper regularly on the bed and use both sides. To keep fresh, simply hang outside to air. Any areas requiring more attention can often be spot cleaned – check your product label for detailed care instructions.
