Hypoallergenic Bedding – Combat Allergies at Night

Sneezing, wheezing and itching disrupting your sleep? You need anti-allergy bedding.

As well as being frustrating, allergy symptoms can also reduce the amount of quality sleep you get each night. Not to mention the fact that night-time coughing and sneezing can disturb your partner’s sleep too. But while traditional advice is to take an antihistamine and avoid the trigger for your symptoms as much as possible, that’s not so easy at night. The average bed can harbour a variety of allergens, from dust mites to fungal spores, that can kick your symptoms into action.

Considering that we spend an average of eight hours per night in bed, it’s no wonder that our allergies flare up at night, disrupting our sleep.

 Tissues for Allergies

How do I know if I’m allergic to dust mites and fungal spores?

Dust mites and fungal spores can trigger a variety of conditions and symptoms. If you suffer from any of the following conditions and find that you experience bad allergies at night, dust mites or fungal spores could be the cause of:
  • Asthma
  • Eczema
  • Allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nose)
If you don’t have any of these conditions, but you do find yourself waking in the night feeling sniffly or itchy, an unknown allergy may be the problem. In particular, look out for the following night-time allergy symptoms:
  • Itchy or runny eyes
  • Itchy skin
  • Sneezing
  • Blocked or runny nose
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Tight chest
  • Sore throat
In addition, some groups of people are more likely to find that their allergies are triggered by dust mites or fungal spores – including children, the elderly, and people who have a weakened immune system.

If you suddenly find yourself suffering from any of the symptoms above, it’s a good idea to get checked out by your doctor. However, if they find that night-time allergies are the likely cause, it is worth looking into what helps relieve allergies at night and different ways to improve your sleep environment.

Fortunately, hypoallergenic bedding can help you to sleep better and wake happier. But what is anti-allergy bedding? And how does anti dust mite bedding help to relieve your symptoms?

What is hypoallergenic bedding?

Hypoallergenic bedding is specially designed to reduce the chance of an allergic reaction at night. It does this by creating an environment in which allergens find it difficult to survive.

To get the maximum benefits, choosing the right hypoallergenic bedding is vital. While there are many anti-allergy duvets and pillows out there, some materials are better than others. Wool, for example, is particularly effective for repelling allergens and providing a hypoallergenic sleeping environment for you. This natural material works wonders to absorb moisture and stay cool, creating an environment which deters dust mites, dust mite allergens and fungal spores – the ideal material for your anti-allergy bedding.

That’s why here at Woolroom, we create all our anti-allergy bedding, including duvets, pillows and mattresses, from wool. In fact, our wool bedding is the first scientifically proven woollen hypoallergenic bedding solution that is also 100% natural! The perfect anti-allergy bedding for eczema, dust mite allergies and more.

Recent scientific tests have shown that our anti-allergy bedding is resistant to house dust mites, house dust mite allergens and fungus. And while there might be many other types of anti-allergy bedding solutions on the market, ours is proven to be effective without freezing or washing at high temperatures. That’s why hypoallergenic bedding from Woolroom is ideal for anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma or eczema. In fact, we’re the only wool bedding manufacturer to have been awarded the Allergy UK Seal of Approval – making our hypoallergenic bedding the best choice for your sleep.

Are anti-allergy pillows safe?

In short, yes. Our wool anti-allergy bedding comes with a whole host of health and sleep benefits. As well as clearing your sleep environment of allergens, wool also absorbs moisture – drawing it away from your body and regulating your temperature – keeping you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s not. What’s more, the wool that goes into our pillows is 100% traceable, free from synthetics and completely sustainable – making it the safer choice for you and the planet.

Our hypoallergenic bedding – put to the test

Woolroom vs. Synthetics Hypoallergenic Bedding Tests

Anti-allergy bedding tests were carried out under controlled conditions over six weeks to perfectly simulate a typical bed environment with changes in humidity and temperature. House dust mites and fungal spores were introduced at the start of the test. The dust mites thrived in the synthetic material, reproducing and increasing levels of allergens due to the ideal conditions. In the wool bedding, the lack of humidity – as well as the fact that the fungal food source could not survive – resulted in no live dust mites or dust mite allergens surviving through the test period. So it is proven that wool is the best filling choice for allergies.
