Wool - Why it's a Super Hero
Australian Merino wool blend fabric has been deliberately chosen as the top layer mattress covering. Wool is a true super fibre. Australian Merino Wool is World renowned to be the best in breed. Wool has superior thermal insulation, moisture transport and buffering properties compared with other fibre types, making it more comfortable to sleep in and on.
Wool is a heat regulator - Wool regulates your body temperature the same way as it does on the sheep. As the body temperature rises the wool has the amazing ability to transfer heat and moisture along every fibre and release it into the cooler, drier environment, and when it’s cold it keeps the heat in.
Antibacterial and Antimicrobial
Wool has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. The natural lanolin in the sheep’s wool contains fatty acids that inhibit the growth of mould, mildew and bacteria. Merino wool repels odour causing bacteria.
Wool has anti-allergen properties and is proven to aid people with skin sensitivities such as eczema. Choosing a fabric that naturally deters the growth of dust mites has benefits for those who suffer from Asthma as well as other dust mite related allergies.
Well sourced wool, from happy sheep, is biodegradable and its production has minimal impact on the environment.
