Benefits of Wool Bedding in Customers’ Own Words

The Benefits of Wool Bedding in Customers’ Own Words.

Wool Does Not Harbor Dust Mites that Cause Allergies

“I wake up with less allergies.”

“I used to wake up with watery eyes (I had blamed the cat) but since switching from down to this wool comforter and some wool pillows I no longer have that problem.”

“I got this out of desperation, my down comforter was making me sneeze nightly. I checked out wool comforters because I knew they couldn’t harbor dust mites-which is what I thought may be causing my sneezing. Our experience with this comforter and bedding combinations: I ordered this and we slept with it the first night. No more sneezing.”

Wool Bedding is Suitable to Partners with Different Temperature Preferences

“I’m usually freezing in bed and my husband usually kicks off all the covers by morning, but we both are wrapped up in this still when we wake up.”

“My girlfriend stays warm, and I stay comfortable without sweating.”

“Hubby usually runs super hot and I’m always cold and this [wool] comforter is just right for the both of us.”

 

Wool Bedding Provides Great Insulation & Reduces Utility Bills

Fast warming effect

“I instantly warm up once I’m under it, there is no initial chill that happens before the down comforter begins to trap body heat.”

Wool Thermoregulates helping Your Body Maintain Stable Temperature Irrespective of Ambient Room Temperature

“I have used a down comforter for years and half of the time wake up in a pool of sweat. I enjoy the feel of a heavy comforter ant it’s not too warm.

This is the perfect weight for year round use and since buying it I have not sweated once and now keep my air conditioning 3-4 degrees higher than before.”

“[I]t really does help regulate body temperature, which is particularly helpful since I sleep on a foam mattress. I no longer wake up in a sweat like I did with the down comforter.”

“The natural wool is so good at temperature regulation, I have been able to get rid of all my blankets and sheets and just use this duvet over my fitted sheet. I thought I would be cold in the winter & hot in the summer, but that has not been the case. And making the bed in the morning has never been easier!”

“You just seem to settle into a temperature equilibrium rather than swing back and forth between hot and cold. I can’t see going back to down after using this for months.”

“I stay warmer without getting hot.”

“Our biggest concern was that the wool would be too warm for summer use, but we’ve had this [wool mattress topper] on our bed all spring and summer and we don’t find it warmer at all.”

Wool Filler Does Not Shed Like Goose Down

“No feather spillage.” “No feathers poking through.” “You don’t have the feathers & dust all over.”

“The wool is a lot more uniform than down and more stable within the comforter, it is breathable – you get really warm but you don’t sweat.”

Wool Filler Does Not Shift & Does Not Form Cold Spots Like Goose Down Does

“No cold spots” “I have always used down or down alternative, but decided to try wool and I think I am hooked. We live in HI where it does get cold (40’s in the winter) and this is just right. I love that I don’t have to deal with shifting stuffing.”

“You know how in down comforters, over time the feathers squish down and move to the corners? Not so with the wool one.”

Wool is Lightweight Yet Warm

“It might look lightweight, but don’t let that fool you. It keeps me warm and toasty at night without weighing me down. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with my new wool comforter!”

Medical Expert’s Opinion on Wool Bedding

According to Dr. Mercola, wool is the best material for comforters and pillows. Unlike goose/duck down, wool is flame resistant without the need for harmful chemical additives to pass flammability tests. Wool also regulates body temperature and discourages dust mite growth, making it hypoallergenic. It’s important to note that the best wool is free from sulfuric acid processing, as this preserves the beneficial properties of lanolin (wool fat).

Prince Charles on Wool’s Benefits

During the UK’s cross border Campaign for Wool The Prince highlighted the many benefits wool has to offer and compared it to the man made fibers. Wool grows naturally, is naturally renewable fiber, very versatile, possesses natural elasticity, and it can be crafted into a wide range of beautiful products. Wool is also an excellent insulator that remains warm even when wet; hypoallergenic, safe thanks to its natural fire retardant properties, odor-resistant, and absorbent of both shocks and sound. Finally, at the end of its life wool entirely biodegrades and decomposes to a fertilizer.

The Prince, regarded as a keen environmentalist, drew the world’s attention to the compounding problem of synthetic fibers ending up in landfill. He personally tested the wool’s biodegradability by burying one sweater made from wool and another from synthetic fiber. This is what he later reported, “[I] personally buried two jerseys in a flower bed at Clearance House. Six months later, a ceremonious exhumation revealed an intact synthetic jersey, fit indeed to be washed and worn, while the woollen jersey had quietly and usefully biodegraded itself away to nothing.”

The Royal Highness also stressed that in the interest of family safety choosing wool reduces the everyday toxic risk of flammable synthetics made from petroleum products. Furthermore, buying wool helps support farmers around the world. Many of us cannot agree more with The Prince.

Mulberry Silk Products

Silk is obtained from the cocoons of domestic silk moths, which are selectively bred and dependent on humans. These moths have a short lifespan, laying around 500 eggs before they perish. Silkworms feed solely on Mulberry leaves, consuming non-stop for 35 days and increasing their weight over 10,000 times. To produce 1 kg of silk, approximately 104 kg of Mulberry leaves are needed for 3,000 silkworms.

After the silkworm reaches maturity, it attaches itself to a twig and starts spinning a cocoon. The silk is created through the secretion of chemicals from the silkworm’s mouth, which solidify upon contact with air. In just three days, each silkworm spins an impressive 1,000 yards of silk fiber, forming a single long continuous thread within its cocoon. The cocoons are then treated with hot water to loosen the filaments, which can be up to 700 to 1,000 yards long. The unraveled silk threads are wound onto spools, spun into thread, and woven into cloth.

Silk fiber is highly durable, often lasting for generations, and it is believed to be stronger than steel fiber of the same diameter. Silk cultivation originated in ancient China, where the legendary story of the Empress accidentally discovering silk while observing silkworms spinning cocoons in her garden is told. Silk production in China was kept as a closely guarded secret, punishable by death for anyone found smuggling silkworm eggs or cocoons. However, sericulture gradually spread to Japan, Korea, and India.

Authentic silk can be identified through the Burn Test, as it burns to black ashes with the smell of burning hair. It only burns while the flame is applied and stops burning once the flame is removed. In contrast, synthetic materials turn into a plastic ball, emit a plastic smell, may drip, do not produce ashes, and can continue burning even after the flame is removed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are your prices lower than the prices of most other companies offering similar products? Is there anything wrong with your products?

– We are a small, family-owned home-based business operating with minimal overhead expenses. Without employees, office space, or a warehouse, we run our business from a private residence. By working directly with manufacturers and eliminating middlemen, we offer high-quality products at affordable prices, thanks to our low-profit margin. In summary, we provide great prices on top-notch products through our streamlined business model.

Are your bedding products made from organic cotton?

– We offer a range of products, some made with GOTS certified organic cotton and others with regular cotton. Organic cotton is more expensive and requires special ordering as manufacturers accept large orders with longer production times. While we are transitioning to organic cotton, we understand that some customers prefer non-organic options due to their lower cost. To meet everyone’s needs, we continue to carry cheaper products made from regular cotton. Excitingly, we recently partnered with an organic cotton supplier and aim to expand our offerings in the future.

How can you validate your claim that your products are filled with real wool or genuine silk and do not contain polyester or other non-organic fibers?

– Our pillows and comforters have zippers for easy inspection. Genuine wool and silk can be confirmed through visual inspection, mild odor, and the burn test. Although adding zippers to our wool toppers is challenging, the absence of chemical odor indicates natural wool. Product samples tested by Woolmark confirm pure virgin wool. We are a legitimate business with accurate disclosures on product labels.

What is the burn test?

– A simple and reliable way to identify wool or silk is through the burn test. Wool or silk are fire resistant and will stop burning once the flame is removed. They will emit the smell of burning human hair and produce ashes. On the other hand, polyester will continue to burn after the flame is removed, emitting a smell of burning plastic. Polyester melts and does not produce ashes.

Do your wool products contain fire retardant chemicals?

– Absolutely not. Wool is naturally fire resistant and there is no need to use fire retardants. The manufacturers of synthetic products are required by law to use fire retardants to make their products less flammable. There is no such requirement for the wool filled products. Wool is natural fire retardant.
