Keep Allergens at Bay by Choosing Natural Wool Mattresses. As a natural product, wool mattresses can help to prevent allergies, leading to a healthier, cleaner, more comfortable night’s sleep. Natural fibers are known for being resistant to allergens and dust mites, by resisting dust and moisture–the two main causes of allergies. Wool Mattresses also sleep cooler then beds without wool.
It has been proven that natural latex is 300 percent more effective at repelling dust mites than synthetic fabrics and foams. Although it is never possible to completely get rid of all allergic conditions, wool and other natural fibers will significantly reduce their effect on your sleeping environment. The idea is to minimize the effects of allergens to ensure the highest quality of sleep.
Another major benefit of natural fibers is that they work with your body rather than against it; adjusting to your body and contouring to its specific shape. This minimizes the tossing and turning that so often disrupts sleep and leaves people feeling sore and lacking energy in the morning. Compared to synthetic materials, which sometimes feel as though they are punishing your body throughout the night, resulting in sore pressure points such as the neck, shoulders, hips and knees, wool mattresses and other natural mattresses are comforting and nurturing.
What Makes Wool Mattresses Great
- As a completely natural material, wool controls the retention and release of water.
- Consequently, wool absorbs up to 33% of its weight, yet never feels damp.
- Wool mattresses possesses a high temperature burn level, meaning it will automatically resist a flame.
- The wool in wool mattresses is a wonderful insulator due to the unique shape of its fibers.
However, not all Wool Mattresses are Made Equally!
Be aware that there are many different types of wool mattresses, because there are many types and breeds of sheep. Wool is a durable, hardy fiber and as such is regularly recycled for other purposes, such as to make blankets and clothing items.
Look for products labeled “virgin wool” to show that it is made from a first run wool material. Wool mattresses labeled in this way is guaranteed to be made from first run wool and not recycled wool.
The Importance of Wool Mattresses in Relation to Temperature
Nobody wants to toss and turn throughout the night, unable to relax and get into a deep sleep because they are too hot and perspiring. Temperature problems are at the root of many people’s sleeping problems. The remarkable heat and moisture-absorbing qualities of wool fibers means that this is no longer an issue; you do not need to deal with excessive heat and night sweats because the wool mattress does it for you.
Natural fibers create a fresh, soothing sleeping surface that artificial materials simply cannot replicate. Additionally, minimizing the moisture on your mattress helps ward off mold and fungus, which can create a lot of other issues such as skin problems and associated allergies. Owners of natural mattresses find them comfortable and energizing, and report that their quality of sleep improves almost instantly.
