It is an honour to be a contributor to Woolroom's new Luxury Range of bedding. I'm obviously a massive advocate of wool itself and the many fantastic benefits it provides. In this blog I've provided some information about myself, my farm and why traceable wool is the way forward! Read the full blog here...
How can you achieve the perfect sleep? Comfortable, cozy bedding? Herbal tea? A cool, dark bedroom environment? Whatever it is, we all want to drift off peacefully in a bed that works for us. And while we’d like to believe that what we’re sleeping in is always high quality, sustainable and natural, the reality is quite different. So if you’re looking to invest in more eco-friendly products, bedding is a great place to start.
It goes without saying that we’re advocates of wool; we devote our lives to spreading the word that it is an incredible fibre that delivers genuine health and sleep benefits.
You’ll often find us shouting out about how wool bedding can deliver up to 25% more stage 4 regenerative sleep, or how it’s a great solution for those who suffer from allergies and night sweats. We also love wool because it’s incredibly fire resistant, which is more than can be said for goose down, duck feather or synthetic alternatives.
But not everyone shares this view. There are plenty of people who have the wrong idea about wool and see it as an uncomfortable fibre to wear, expensive to buy and too hot for the summer months. Which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to debunk these myths and give wool the integrity it deserves!
Need help choosing the best duvet insert for you? Whether you’re a hot sleeper, suffer with night-time allergies or simply want an easy-care duvet insert, we’ve put together some top tips on how to choose a duvet insert to find the one that’s best suited to your needs.
Nightmares are usually only associated with children, but they can happen to all of us – at any age. When you wake up feeling shaky and scared to go back to sleep, you might think you’re the only adult who suffers from nightmares, or that you should have outgrown them by now. But you’re not alone!
Loss of sleep can impact on your everyday, leaving you with less energy and less motivation to do all the things you usually do. It can impact your mood, your emotions and even your health. In short, when you’re sleep deprived it can affect your quality of life.
We spend a lot of our time talking about the properties of wool bedding that make it beneficial for a happier, healthier sleep, but did you know that wool is also a really safe, natural fiber to have in your home?
In this blog we’ll explore some questions you may have, such as, is wool flammable and does wool burn? And we’ll find out why wool is an excellent and healthy choice if you’re looking for natural, fire retardant bedding.
If you’re looking for ways to reduce your environmental impact, understanding where various materials come from, and the impact of their growth and production on the planet, is a great place to start.
Answers to questions such as which are the most sustainable textiles? Is wool a renewable resource? And even, what’s the most environmentally friendly bedding? can all help you to assess your options and begin to make choices about the things you buy that will have less of a detrimental effect on the planet.
We’re all beginning to open our eyes to issues like global warming, water overuse and even microplastics in the ocean. So, if we want to help preserve the planet’s precious resources for our children and grandchildren, searching for ways we can recycle, reuse or simply reduce our impact has to be top of our list of priorities.
