Nothing beats a good night’s sleep. That’s why it’s more important than ever to know what you’re sleeping on and where your bedding comes from.

And while it’s easy to ignore, knowing exactly where your mattress has come from and how it’s been produced is the best way to guarantee that you get healthy, good quality sleep.
So how does mattress production impact the outcome of your sleep? And which mattress manufacturers are the best?

That’s why we’re looking at two of the most popular naturally sourced fillings to solve the conundrum - wool vs down comforter. But what is a down comforter? And what’s the difference between that and the wool filled version?

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to cotton, with many of us believing that cotton is better for the environment and comes from a natural source. But the reality is quite different. Conventional cotton differs massively from its organic equivalent, including the way it’s made and how it's distributed. With organic cotton however, you can guarantee where it has come from.

From an early age I have always wanted to farm. I left school at 16 to begin working on the farm to assist my father. This was something that I felt strongly about as it has run in the family for generations.

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!
