When it comes to wool, it may not be the first fabric of choice when it comes to bed linens, particularly a mattress pad. What probably comes to mind when you think of wool is….hot, picky, and definitely not for me. But believe it or not, an organic wool mattress pad is anything but hot and picky and actually have many benefits over traditional mattress pads.
Wool responds to fluctuating body temperature no matter what the season, acting as a natural heat regulator. It keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Yes, you read that right….cool in the summer. That’s because wool wicks moisture away from your body. A single fiber can absorb 30% of its weight in body vapor, thus cooling you down.
Wool has the most complex fiber structure of all textile fibers. It’s high nitrogen and moisture content make it the most flame resistant of all textile fibers. Interestingly, wool chars and does not flame, but don’t test that at home…just take my word for it. : )
Wool also has a natural property of being resistant to mold. Maybe this is why we never see moldy sheep…. Wool also repels dust-mites, so it’s a great choice for those who suffer with allergies.
The soft cushion of wool gives comfort to your whole body naturally with no man made materials or chemicals. An organic wool mattress cover will help make your nights rest a good one and bedtime something to look forward to.
