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.

"Comforter Question"
How does your all season comforter work? Do the 2 different weight wool blankets hook together? Is it easy to take one out when needed? Also how does it compare to your medium weight? This is for one warm and one cool sleeper in a temperate climate.
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Lorie,

So the all seasons works by having a light duvet and medium duvet attached together by poppers- so easy separate when needed. Wool has an amazing attribute of regulating temperature so it will work for both the warm and cool sleeper.

Many Thanks,
The woolroom

"Care Of Wool Mattress Topper"
Does the wool topper flatten and require regular shaking and turning?
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Gill,
The mattress topper is recommended to be shaken every couple of weeks to freshen it up however this isn't necessary. It won't flatten down but instead will provide a very comfortable and supportive layer for you to sleep on. A great addition for a mattress that is slightly too firm and looking for additional comfort. I hope this helps.
Kind regards,

My husband and I recently purchased a new mattress, mainly with my back problem in mind. It is foam and unfortunately I didn't take my menopausal night sweats into account. We cannot afford to replace the mattress, but I wondered whether your topper would be a suitable compromise. We already have a wool duvet. Many thanks
Woolroom's Customer Care Team HI Tracey,

I am sorry to hear you are not getting on well with your new mattress.

I would suggest the protecvtor rather than the topper as the toppers are very densly packed and can still be a bit warm but the protector has a thinner layer of wool on a fitted sheet which will really help with the over heating.

Two weeks ago I took delivery of a latex mattress which has a 1/2 inch layer of wool covered in 100% cotton. While looking for a mattress cover/protector I luckily ran across your website. I am allergic to dust mites, so that's my main concern. When I purchased this mattress, I didn't know that much about the comfort of sleeping on wool. I've been sleeping like a baby. Would your mattress cover add to the comfort I am already experiencing and further protect the mattress? I don't want to purchase a polyurethane coated mattress cover. I feel it would ruin the integrity of the wool layer I'm presently enjoying.
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Vicki, Thanks for your enquiry. The mattress cover that we offer is just a layer to protect the mattress and will not add comfort to the mattress. A protector is designed for temperature regulation so you get the cooling benefits of wool. This would work perfectly with your mattress and would help your allergies. If you are looking for additional comfort then I would look at the mattress toppers we offer. They are 3/4 inches thick and will provide additional support and comfort. I hope this helps.
Kind regards,

Hello! I suffer from menopausal hot flashes and can't get comfortable at night using a feather blanket. My husband is too cold and I'm roasting. Will a wool comforter keep us both comfortable? I'm thinking of purchasing the lightweight bedding set, as I think this will be cool for the summer. Can this be paired with a feather blanket on top for additional warmth in the winter? Will the wool still breathe? We live in northern Vermont and have very cold winters.
Woolroom's Customer Care Team Hi Jocelyn, Thank you for your enquiry. A wool comforter will really help you both as it can regulate temperatures for different individuals. The bedding set will be perfect for you both as by cocooning yourself in wool it will really help keep you both at a constant temperature. With the bedding set as well you will be covered by the 30 night guarantee so if any part of the set is not right you can exchange it for a different item. You can pair it with a feather blanket however the wool may struggle to breathe as the synthetic nature of it will trap in the heat. We'd recommend using a wool blanket to further enhance the regulating temperatures. I hope this helps.
Kind regards,
