Allow Your Wool Bedding to Breathe Daily

The easiest way to care for your natural wool topper is by unmaking your bed every morning. Let the most active areas of your topper breathe by pulling back your comforter and blankets for at least an hour or two after you wake up. Your wool topper has been actively wicking moisture away from your skin throughout the night. It’s nature’s way of keeping you in a comfortable temperature zone. Giving your topper a daily chance to air out allows it to release that moisture and stay fresh.

Seasonal Sun and Air For Your Wool Mattress Pad 

Once each season, remove all of your bedding from your wool mattress topper and place it out in the sun. Sun naturally deodorizes, bleaches, disinfects, and revitalizes wool. You can drape the topper over railings or furniture, hang it out the window, or lay it on a blanket in the sun. If you are unable to bring your topper outside, you can place it near a fireplace/stove or other source of dry heat.

If you live in a particularly humid climate you can take additional steps:

  • Use a dehumidifier
  • Sun and air topper more frequently
  • Use a space-heater as a stand-in for sun

Wool is incredibly resistant to mold and mildew. Keep an eye on the wooden slats of your frame for early signs of mildew.

Caring for your Wool Comforter

Sun and Air Your Wool Comforter

As often as you change your sheets, we recommend you place your comforter out in the sun. Sun naturally deodorizes, bleaches, disinfects, and revitalizes wool. You can drape the comforter over railings or furniture, hang it out the window, or lay it on a blanket in the sun. If you are unable to bring your comforter outside, you can place it near a fireplace/stove or other source of dry heat.

If you live in a particularly humid climate you can take additional steps:

  • Use a dehumidifier
  • Sun and air comforter more frequently
  • Use a space-heater as a stand-in for sun

Caring for your Wool Pillows

Once each season, remove all of your wool pillows from their pillow cases and place them out in the sun. Sun will naturally deodorize, bleach, disinfect, and revitalize your wool pillows. You can hang the pillows over railings or furniture, hang them out the window, or lay them on a blanket in the sun. If you are unable to bring your pillows outside, you can place the items near a fireplace/stove or other source of dry heat.

Caring for your Wool Mattress Protector

Wool should always be washed with care. Frequent washing can strip the fibers of lanolin removing some of the beneficial properties of wool. (Lanolin adds dust-mite and mildew resistant properties to wool fibers.)

Your mattress protector can be machine washed. Front-loaders are best, but not necessary. Always use a “delicate” or “woolen” cycle and cold water. Use a mild detergent or one that is formulated for wool such as Eucalan, Kookabura or Woolite. You can purchase Eucalan here
