The Magical Benefits of Organic Wool Bedding.
By The House of Pillows
When you think of wool, what comes to your mind? Warm, fluffy, cozy goodness, right? Organic wool, is one of the best materials to have in your bedding – and we’re not just saying that. In this post, we’re going to go over some of the magical benefits of organic wool bedding.
1/ Warm, Cozy and
So Much More
Most people think of wool just as something to make their bed warmer during the winter. And this is true. Wool bedding is great for the winter season.
But, the amazing properties of organic wool bedding go beyond that.
Organic wool has no harsh chemicals added to it, is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-dustmite, naturally flame retardant and regulates body temperature.
2/ Body Moisture and
One of the biggest benefits of organic wool bedding, is it’s unique ability to absorb up to 1/3 of its weight in moisture without feeling damp. Indeed, it efficiently wicks away the one-liter of moisture vapor our bodies lose each night!
The organic wool releases the dampness absorbed from our bodies during the night, into the atmosphere during the day providing a dry, warm inviting sleeping environment every night for better quality, healthier sleep.
What’s more, organic wool is the only material that both absorbs and releases moisture efficiently, thereby maintaining your body temperature stable.
That means no more tossing and turning in bed because you’re either too hot or too cold, or both, on and off during the night. This could be one of the reasons you’re getting less than perfect sleep.
3/ Why is it important to have body temperature regulating bedding?
Because most people lose on average 2 oz of water vapor every hour of their life.
When we sleep, if we are too hot, moisture accumulates, and we perspire even more. If you remove your covers to cool off when this happens, cooler air starts to dry the moisture through evaporation, making you feel cold.
As you might have guessed: this is no good, for many reasons.
This restless, disturbed sleep can be detrimental to the immune system and increase the production of stress hormones – not what you’re looking for when it comes to getting a good night’s rest.
Organic wool bedding is
Perfect for couples.
Because of the magical benefits organic wool bedding, it is perfect for everybody, as it adapts to YOUR body.
Many couples have different preferences: some like it hot, some like it cool.
Well, organic wool creates a “microclimate”, which assists in regulating body temperatures and humidity, thus relieving the body of thermal stress, and promoting a deeper, more refreshing sleep.
But, it’s important to know where your wool comes from. Non-organic wool can be harsh on your skin, brittle, and have loads of harsh chemicals added to it, which you might be allergic to.
Only pure, healthy, organic wool will hold all the benefits of organic wool bedding, so it’s important to know what you’re getting.
