We’ve all been told that counting sheep in our heads will help us nod off to sleep. But the contribution sheep have on providing the perfect sleep goes far beyond that. With wool being regarded as the best material for sleeping, it’s no wonder more and more people are choosing wool bedding to snuggle up with at night. But the big benefit of opting for natural wool bedding over a synthetic alternative is that you know exactly where your bedding comes from. As the UK’s first traceable wool bedding company, we offer ethically produced wool from flocks of happy and healthy sheep that are cared for by our trusted team of farmers. This added bonus of traceability means you’ll get complete transparency on the source of your bedding – from the farm right through to your bedroom.
But where does wool come from? And how is wool made? Find out more about the journey of wool, from the field of sheep to the perfect bedding.
With summer on the horizon, it’s more important than ever to understand the benefits of good sleep hygiene. At Woolroom, our priority is providing a happier, healthier night’s sleep for our customers. And the easiest way to achieve this is to clean up your sleeping habits, whether that’s by changing your bedding, adjusting your personal routine or looking more at your overall health.
As the months get warmer, our bedrooms become more humid, increasingly tepid and generally less comfortable. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Discover how to maximise the quality of your sleep with our Sleep Hygiene Checklist.
Typically we’re ready for sleep around the same time each night, and we tend to wake up at the same time every morning, even when we don’t set an alarm. But with all of us staying snug inside our homes, the days are beginning to merge into one and our sleep patterns are suffering because of it. That’s why we’ve answered your questions on sleep schedules, from “how to fall asleep faster” to “why can’t I fall asleep?” and advice on how to fix sleep schedules.
From an early age I have always wanted to farm. I left school at 16 to begin working on the farm to assist my father. This was something that I felt strongly about as it has run in the family for generations. Today, we make conceded efforts to focus on strong animal welfare practices, understanding that happy sheep produce a better quality fibre resulting in a higher price per kilo of wool.

At Woolroom, we pride ourselves in using natural materials that help our customers get healthier, happier sleep. Wool comes with a range of desirable properties that make it an extremely valuable material for your sleep, including temperature-regulation. You may be under the impression that this is a myth, and that wool actually makes you hotter at night – but this is where you’d be wrong. So how does wool keep you cool? And do wool mattress toppers keep you cool? Find out here!
It is an honour to be a contributor to Woolroom's new Luxury Range of bedding. I'm obviously a massive advocate of wool itself and the many fantastic benefits it provides. In this blog I've provided some information about myself, my farm and why traceable wool is the way forward! Read the full blog here...
How can you achieve the perfect sleep? Comfortable, cozy bedding? Herbal tea? A cool, dark bedroom environment? Whatever it is, we all want to drift off peacefully in a bed that works for us. And while we’d like to believe that what we’re sleeping in is always high quality, sustainable and natural, the reality is quite different. So if you’re looking to invest in more eco-friendly products, bedding is a great place to start.
It goes without saying that we’re advocates of wool; we devote our lives to spreading the word that it is an incredible fibre that delivers genuine health and sleep benefits.
You’ll often find us shouting out about how wool bedding can deliver up to 25% more stage 4 regenerative sleep, or how it’s a great solution for those who suffer from allergies and night sweats. We also love wool because it’s incredibly fire resistant, which is more than can be said for goose down, duck feather or synthetic alternatives.
But not everyone shares this view. There are plenty of people who have the wrong idea about wool and see it as an uncomfortable fibre to wear, expensive to buy and too hot for the summer months. Which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to debunk these myths and give wool the integrity it deserves!
Tired but can’t sleep? Lying awake in bed at night wondering how to fall asleep without any fuss? If all the tossing and turning is getting you down and you’re not sure what to do when you can’t drift off, we’ve got a few suggestions on things to do when you can’t sleep – sending you off into the land of nod in no time.
It’s 7am, your alarm goes off and you drag yourself out of bed after a restless night – we’ve all been there. A bad night’s sleep can make you feel grouchy the following day, but in the long run it can have further consequences. So how does sleep really benefit your health?
Are firm or soft mattresses better? When it comes to choosing a mattress that suits your sleep style, your posture and your natural sleep temperature, there are so many questions you need to ask yourself before you find the right fit.
That’s where we come in!
