What is moisture wicking?
If you find it tricky to keep your temperature perfectly balanced during the night, a moisture wicking mattress pad should be at the top of your priority list. But what is moisture wicking?
Wicking is the act of absorbing or soaking up water through a material or fabric and having it desorb into the surrounding air. The reason for moisture wicking properties in bedding or clothing is to take any excess moisture away from your skin, allowing it to evaporate and leaving you cool and dry.
This - combined with wool fibers - is the perfect solution for a breathable, comfortable sleep. If your mattress pad is made from synthetic materials such as nylon or polyester, you’ll likely find that you’re tossing and turning or unable to fall into a deep sleep.
But with a water resistant mattress pad made from moisture wicking fabric, you’ll notice that drifting off to sleep is much easier.
What are the benefits of a moisture wicking mattress pad?
A moisture wicking mattress pad eliminates sweat and water from points of high saturation (like near your body or face), to points of low saturation (away from your body), for a more comfortable sleeping environment.
The average adult loses 2-3 cups of moisture throughout a typical night’s sleep just from perspiration, watery eyes and runny noses. So where does it all go?
With synthetic bedding and mattress pads, water can become trapped and lead to nasty stains or unpleasant odors. With a natural wool mattress pad, you can rest assured that the moisture wicking fabric is doing its job to get rid of all that excess water.
This makes for a much cosier sleep, leaving you feeling much more refreshed and energised when you wake up each morning. At Woolroom, we use wool in our moisture wicking mattress pads, pillows, comforters, blankets and bedding. This is because we firmly believe that an all-natural sleep environment is the healthiest way to get a better night’s sleep.
