It's cool when it's hot, and warm when it's not!

Wool is a natural insulator to keep you warm in winter and naturally breathable to keep you cool in summer.

Wool fibre helps to keep your body at the optimal temperature zone for comfort and rest. When used in blankets, synthetic fibres, down and even cotton fibres do not breathe as well as wool, and are more likely to trap heat in your bed. Wool buffers the extreme cold or hot air on the outside, keeping your body in the ideal comfort zone. Baa-rilliant!

It's naturally absorbent!

Wool fibre is the original wicking fibre. Wool fabrics can absorb up to 30% of their weight without feeling heavy or damp. Cotton fabrics begin to feel damp after 15%. The fibres 'breathe' by absorbing away moisture from the body and releasing it into the air. This quality makes wool fabrics comfortable to wear in warm and cold weather.

It's hypoallergenic!

Wool is hypoallergenic. Although some people do have a rare natural allergy to Lanolin, the oil found in wool, most people's allergy to wool is a reaction to the many harsh and toxic chemicals that go into the treatment, and finishing of conventional wool garments and bedding. Serious chemical abrasives are routinely used to wash raw wool for processing. Chlorine and mothproofing chemicals are routinely applied to conventional wool before turning it into a finished product.

It resists Mildew and Mold, naturally!

Wool's natural resistance to mildews and moulds comes from the way it repels moisture, and lets moisture pass through it's fibres without trapping it. Mildews and moulds require moisture to live, and grow.

It's clean!

Wool resists static, dirt and dust. Wool fabric doesn't collect much static because of its absorbent fibres. Static attracts lint, dirt, and dust. Wool fabrics also clean easily because dirt sits on the surface of the fibre. The outside surface of the wool fibre consists of a series of overlapping scales, similar to the feathers on a bird, making it easy to brush off and for stains to lift out.

It's durable!

Laboratory tests have shown that wool fibres resist tearing and can bend back on themselves more than 20,000 times without breaking. Cotton breaks after 3,200 bends, silk fibres break after 1,800 bends, and rayon fibres break after just 75 bends. Wool clothing will last for years.

Wool also resists spills and dries very quickly.

It's naturally wrinkle resistant!

Wool fabrics resist wrinkles. Wool is the most resilient fibre because it has a natural crimp that helps it keep its shape. Wool fibres can be stretched and still bounce back to their original shape.

It's fire retardant!

Wool is safer to wear because of its natural fire-retardant properties. It can resist flame without the chemical treatment involved in fireproofing. Most synthetic fibres ignite easily, burn fiercely and melt at an alarming rate.

It's clean!

Wool resists static, dirt and dust. Wool fabric doesn't collect much static because of its absorbent fibres. Static attracts lint, dirt, and dust. Wool fabrics also clean easily because dirt sits on the surface of the fibre. The outside surface of the wool fibre consists of a series of overlapping scales, similar to the feathers on a bird, making it easy to brush off and for stains to lift out.

It's renewable and sustainable!

Wool is a renewable resource that can be shorn from sheep annually. It is biodegradable and kinder to the environment than oil-based synthetics, which contribute to global pollution.

"Risk Of Moths To Wool Mattress"
Hello, we are 99% settled on buying a single size Exmoor mattress. However we constantly battle with moth infestation and while I’ve found a brilliant way to control them (trichigramma wasps) I don’t know if that would be effective on the mattress. Perhaps the moths couldn’t find a way inside the mattress in the first place? Or perhaps the waterproof protector would give some assurance? Thank you, Claire
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Claire,

We've never had a single issue with moths on any of our products, but if you're concerned one of our wool mattress protectors would be a good way of being extra sure. These are covered in an organic cotton outer. We sell thousands of these every year and again, we've never had a single issue reported regarding moths.

Hope this helps, but don't hesitate to give us a call if you need any more assurances. You can get hold our our customer care team on 01780 461220.

Kind regards,
Ada,

What type of laundry soap do you recommend for washing your bedding sets (duvet, protector, pillows)? I'm in the US and would prefer to find something locally if I can.
Thanks!
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi there, you can get wool detergents fairly readily. We'd always recommend looking for something as natural as possible.

Hope this helps.

Hi, The children in my family suffer from severe allergies to modern chemicals so I am looking for a king size chemical free, organic mattress. Do all your products offer this? We need a kingsize and two doubles?
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Sia,

All of our mattresses from the Exmoor 1000 sprung to the Costwold 20,000 sprung are available in Kingsize and aren't sprayed with any brominated flame retardants whatsoever. They're not entirely organic, though we do source our wool from farmers who do adhere to the 5 Freedoms act: https://www.thewoolroom.com/five-freedoms/

Kind regards,
Adam

Hi, I’m waking up every morning with dust mite allergy, sneezing etc and starting to be woken mid-sleep for the same reason. I’m obviously very allergic to dust mite. I think I need a complete change of my bed products. What can you recommend? I have a double bed.
Woolroom's Customer Care Team We can certainly help you with that and I'm very confident that wool will be the solution. One of our team will give you a call on Monday morning to discuss the options and help you to sleep better. No one should have to suffer while sleeping.

Kind regards,
Ed

Hello,

I was curious to know if the wool was dyed/colour treated would it lessen the health benefits. Also would a wool covering on a synthetic surface offer health benefits or does the entire bedding have to be wool?

kindest regards,
Jen
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Jen, certain treatments may to wool may affect this. We double scoured our wool to wash off the barbs to remove the lanolin oil which will improve the performance of the wool. A wool covering over a synthetic surface will have some benefit however the best would be to use a wool surface with a cotton outer to provide that natural comfort which will significantly help your health as wool cannot harvest dust mites which is great for allergy sufferers. I hope this helps. If you have any more questions then feel free to give us a call.

Hello I’m just wondering about the wool cotbed mattress toppers? Does the baby sleep on top of it or do you put a sheet over it?
My son is 14 months old and hates his cot do you think the topper would help. Many thanks
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Allison, I think this may help however we do recommend a waterproof protector to protect the topper from leaks. If you let us know what type of cot he has that might be of help.
Thanks,
Adam
