Wool Is Naturally Resistant To Mildew
Wool is naturally resistant to mildew because of its ability to wick moisture. The wool fibers allow moisture to pass through without retaining any of the moisture in the wool itself. Mildew cannot survive without a damp environment to grow upon.
Wool Can Regulate Your Body Temperature
Wool fibers keep a pocket of air close to your body. The coil-shaped fibers naturally wick excess heat and moisture from your skin to create the perfect temperature zone for a good night’s sleep.
Wool Keeps Your Heart Rate Low
A study conducted by scientists at Polytechnic Institute of Wales measured the effects of many fibers on human subjects as they slept. They find that wool fibers tend to keep skin drier, and they were amazed to discover that the subjects using wool-filled comforters actually had lower heart rates. A lower heart rate indicates a deeper, relaxed state of sleep.
