Are wool mattress toppers hot to sleep on?One of the most common misconceptions of wool is that it’s more suited to the winter months, but as nature’s miracle material it can also keep you cool in the summer, too. It’s a natural insulator that often provides relief for hot sleepers as it helps to control body temperature at night.
As a renewable material, wool has developed over thousands of years to keep sheep both healthy and comfortable. And its microscopic structure helps to keep you cool by wicking away excess moisture from your skin, so no matter the weather, so you can rest assured that you will sleep comfortably. These qualities are also what makes wool so popular amongst those who suffer with night sweats.
How does wool keep you cool?One of the benefits of wool is its ability to absorb moisture, which enhances its qualities as a unique fibre. Each fibre is covered in small burrs that rapidly open and close depending on the amount of moisture and temperature that they are exposed to. These wool fibres help to keep your body at the optimal temperature zone for the best night’s sleep, by allowing vapour to pass through to the heart of the fibre. Wool absorbs moisture from the atmosphere to create a drier environment to maintain balance, and shield against the extreme cold or hot air outside of your bed – so that no matter the weather, you can feel comfortable and ready for sleep.

So, are wool mattress toppers any good for my health?Despite the obvious temperature-regulating properties of wool, you may be wondering “Are wool mattress toppers any good for my overall health?”. Well, wool mattress toppers are typically softer than traditional cotton, subsequently relieving pain and pressure points as you sleep. They’re also naturally fire, mildew and allergen resistant. Due to its temperature-regulating properties, wool provides a dry sleeping environment that is uninhabitable for allergens, and therefore completely dust-mite free and naturally hypoallergenic – making it the ideal choice for sleepers who suffer with allergies, especially in the summer.
