Sleeping Sensibility: Wool Bedding

As the seasons change and temperatures begin to dip, you may be looking forward to transitioning the rooms in your home for cool, cozy weather. When it comes to fall and winter bedding, wool offers many health benefits, temperature control and added warmth for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Wool's Origins

Wool is a fabric derived from woven yarn made from animal hair or fur. It has a long history of being used by many cultures across the globe to weave warm clothing, bedding and blankets.

While most wool bedding manufactured in the U.S. is made from sheep’s wool, a variety of different types of animal hair can be used to make wool products including goats, alpacas, llamas, camels, and rabbits. Each of these animal hair types offer varying degrees of softness, thermal abilities and density.

Wool’s Finest Qualities

Wool fabrics are known and loved for their warmth, texture, and temperature regulating abilities. Its natural fibers allow it to offer many attractive comfort and health benefits.

  1. Warmth. Wool works to keep you warm in bed just like it does to keep the animal protected from the cold in winter months.
  2. Health Benefits. The fabric’s moisture-wicking properties help keep away mold spores and dust mites in moist environments.
  3. Temperature Regulation. An animal wears its wool year round which means it must strike a balance to keep the animal warm in winter months and protected against heat during the summer months. These amazing temperature regulating properties allow wool bedding to help you sleep comfortably throughout the night despite temperature changes.  
  4. Moisture-wicking. Like cotton, wool is breathable and absorbent making it an ideal fabric for sleeping cool even under multiple layers of bedding.
  5. Odor-repelling. Pet owners can rejoice! Wool’s natural fibers release moisture rather than absorb it so you don't have to worry about that odor-producing bacteria in your bed.
  6. Fire-resistant. Unlike other synthetic fibers that can melt or spread flames quickly, if wool catches fire, it will only char and burn out.
