What are the benefits of wool bedding?Looking for the secret to better sleep? We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – it’s wool. As nature’s miracle material, wool comes with a whole host of environmental, health and sleep benefits. Discover the advantages of wool and how it makes for the best sleep environment below.
Do right by the environment with wool beddingWool is a naturally sustainable fibre, meaning it is also biodegradable in nitrogen rich soils and compost. So you can sleep easy knowing that it won’t pollute the environment once it’s come to the end of its natural life.
Did you know that non-organic cotton uses 24% of the world’s pesticides? That’s why our Organic Washable and Chatsworth ranges are made using unbleached organic cotton – to do better by you and the environment. At Woolroom, we’re continuously looking for eco-friendly resources to work with when creating our products and our packaging – so that at every step, you know you’re in contact with high-quality, natural materials. Our bedding is also packaged in unbleached calico bags that contain no plastic, so they can even be re-used as a shopping tote bag!
Feel the sleep benefits of woolHaving trouble nodding off at night? Wool is a natural sleeping aid, making it the key to enhanced sleep. So if you’re struggling to drift off, switching to wool bedding can help. There are several benefits that wool brings to the table when it comes to getting a better night’s sleep. These include:
- Temperature regulation – keeping you warm in the chill and cool when the sun comes out, which is why wool is so popular amongst night sweat sufferers
- Mould, mildew and dust mite resistance – ideal for allergy sufferers to help clear the air and relieve symptoms while they sleep
Wool is also naturally flame retardant, clean and wrinkle resistant – making your bedroom a safer, cleaner place to sleep in. So why not cocoon yourself in wool and experience your best night’s sleep yet?

Experience the health benefits of sleeping on woolWe’ve covered the environmental and sleep benefits of wool, but what does this all mean for your overall health? With wool, you’re guaranteed up to 25% more regenerative sleep, helping you wake up with that fresh feeling, knowing that you’re ready to tackle the day ahead.
Choosing chemical-free bedding can lead to improved quality sleep, helping relieve sleep issues like insomnia. But there are several other health benefits that also come with getting a good night’s worth of clean sleep:
- Maintaining your weight
- Keeping a healthy heart
- Staying focussed
- Fighting off infections
- Taking care of your mental health
- Lowering blood pressure
- Reducing inflammation
- Allowing for time to repair
And if you’re worried about wool irritating your skin and keeping you up at night, you don’t need to be. In the UK, we are lucky to have some of the most diverse native breeds of sheep in the world that have perfectly acclimatised to their surroundings. For example, the fleece of a highland breed is much coarser than that of a fluffier lowland sheep – and that’s why we use both! The softer lowland wool for any bedding that touches your skin and the more durable highland fleece for harder wearing mattress fillings – so you can sleep easy knowing that your skin won’t suffer.
