The thought of sleeping with a wool comforter in the summer makes you sweat. But, did you know that for over 12,000 years, wool has been used to make life more comfortable, especially in the hottest climates.
Wool bedding such as, mattress toppers, comforters, and pillows actually provide the perfect temperature-controlled sleeping environment. Manufacturers have all tried to make a synthetic product with the qualities of real wool but have never succeeded. It goes like this, wool is wool, you can’t remake something like it.
Characteristics of Wool:
Wool Regulates Body Temperature
Do you ever lay in bed on a hot summer night and feel sticky? Then you start tossing and turning, feeling no comfort at all. Will Cheviot wool, it has coil like fibers that allow the wool to breathe, allowing air to flow through the wool. With this, it pulls your body heat through the wool and out, like a fan circulating the room. This type of wool will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Sounds like the perfect night’s sleep doesn’t it?
Wool is Hypoallergenic
Not only does the wool keep your body temperature perfect, it’s hypoallergenic. If you’re like most people who breaths in the slightest bit of dust and then has a sneezing fit, this is the perfect bedding for you. Dust mites need moisture to live and without moisture theirs no dust mites. Now, I’m not saying there isn’t going to be dust mites anywhere on your bed, but if there is, they won’t be there for long.
Wool is Soothing
Wool is soft. Do you wake up in the morning feeling like your shoulder is stiff or maybe you have to crack your back in order to stand up straight. Having a wool topper on your mattress will soften the mattress immensely. You’ll wake up feeling more refreshed after each night. No more stiff shoulders or sore back.
Wool is a Natural Fire Retardant
This is great news for those people who smoke in their homes or like to light candles near their bed to have a comfortable ambiance in the room. When wool touches a flame, it won’t ignite because wool fibers do not support combustion.
How Wool Works:
Wool has still air pockets where your skin touches it. This creates a dry layer next to the skin which helps hold heat in during the winter and helps cool your body when the blistering summer heat starts to rise.When we sweat, it’s our body’s way of trying to cool down. So, when you’re lying in bed at night, finding yourself tossing and turning with no relief just think what that wool mattress topper can do for you.
