Wool Comforters - the ULTIMATE in cool.
Our best-selling range of British Wool Comforters, now available in popular US sizes, offer great choice and flexibility whilst also providing the practicality of being machine washable. Our British Comforters are natural, free from synthetic fibres and beautifully constructed to ensure they last far longer than other types of comforter.
Wool is nature's miracle fibre. This has been known for centuries and over time has been displaced by cheaper, non-renewable alternatives. Wool ensures you remain cool when it's hot, warm when it's not and can adapt to two different sleeper's temperatures at the same time. This is because, as a naturally dry fibre, wool can absorb 33% of its own weight in moisture thus reducing humidity and ensuring that you do not overheat.
Research by the University of Leeds has proven that wool is 67% more effective at removing humidity from your sleeping environment than goose down or feathers and 46% more effective than synthetic hollow fibre. But don't worry, this absorbed moisture is then released in to the ambient air when the bedding is not in use ensuring no build-up of mould or bad smells.
Wool also has the ability to improve the indoor air quality of your home naturally wherever wool is introduced. This is because wool absorbs Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C.Æs) and locks them away for life deep inside the fibre. V.O.C.Æs are commonly found in flame retardants often found used in new clothing and furniture, cleaning products and synthetic products. By introducing wool in to your home you can eliminate V.O.C.Æs in just a few hours.
The Wool Room's entire range of wool bedding is proven to be a naturally hypoallergenic bedding option too. Scientific testing over a period of six weeks has shown that, when introduced to our wool bedding, dust mites could not survive. By removing two of their main food sources, namely moisture & mould spores, we ensure maximum dust mite resistance naturally.
We're also proud to say that our entire bedding range has been awarded the Allergy UK Seal of Approval. Great news for those with asthma and allergies, with no need to buy unnecessary synthetic protectors, wash at 60 degrees or freeze your bedding to remain effective.
