We often think of wool pad as something to add warmth to our beds. But that isn’t necessarily true, wool is the only material that both absorbs and releases moisture efficiently. This wool pad is “Woolmark” quality certified as 100% pure high-pile Australian wool which comes from the perfect climate and landscape that produces some of the whitest, finest and cleanest natural wool in the world. Wool makes an ideal fill for bedding and provides comfort all year round, relief from allergies, a natural resistance to dust mites, a microclimate to suit you. The transfer of moisture away from your skin helps to maintain an even body temperature throughout the night, which results in a deeper more restful sleep. Wool is also Eco-Friendly. It is a resilient material and doesn’t compress over time the way other materials can. Wool insulates incredibly well and maintains an even temperature. Your body will be able to stay warm in winter and cool in summer, meaning you won’t wake up or sleep restlessly due to temperature. It is a complete myth that wool is hot. Wool is an incredible material and will allow air to pass through easily in order to keep the temperature down when it is hot. Wool has the unique ability to absorb the moisture without getting damp. Woolen fibers have a self-cleaning mechanism which forces moisture to the surface where it dissipates into the air. The wool is naturally resistant to mold and mildew. This wool pad protects your mattress as well. It is long lasting for years to come. Care Instructions: To ensure long life and infrequent cleaning, you can maintain the freshness of the wool pad by airing it outdoors occasionally (avoid direct sunlight) or tumble dried cool air for 15-20 minutes. Spot clean if required, using a mild detergent and cold water. Air dry on line or in a large size dryer on cool. Do not wring or twist. Do not bleach. Dry clean recommended.
