Merino wool bedding – The Facts
Merino wool bedding is the finest and softest of all
the woollen bedding available, it provides a more comfortable
sleeping environment than synthetic bedding and therefore
enables you to sleep for longer.
By keeping your body at more constant temperature throughout
the night, merino wool bedding ensures that you get a
more relaxed and restful nights sleep and therefore wake-up
calm, stress free and invigorated for the day ahead.
Merino wool bedding’s ability to ‘breathe’
helps it to maintain your body’s own ‘ideal’
sleeping temperature and by actually absorbing moisture
away from your skin, it helps your body to stay cooler
and drier for much longer periods than bedding made from
synthetic fillings or covers.
The benefits of using merino wool instead of traditional
more coarse wools (such as British wool) is that merino
wool is GUARANTEED to contain finer and therefore softer
fibres than all other wools. By using the finer softer
fibres, merino wool bedding will always feel soft and
comfortable to the touch and never itch or irritated as
may have been the case with coarser harsher wools.
The natural moisture control inherent in merino wool
bedding also means that it is naturally bacteria inhibiting.
In traditional bedding moisture will sit on the fibres
creating warm, dark, damp conditions, which are ideal
conditions for mites to bread. Merino wool bedding absorbs
this excess moisture vapour into its fibres before releasing
it into the surrounding environment, therefore reducing
the conditions required for the life cycle of the mite.
