Top Winter Blankets and Why

As we look back on past months and look forward to the uncertain future ahead in the midst of our continued fight against Covid-19, getting a great night’s sleep is one thing that’s eluded many of us. But we’re pleased to say, wool can provide a solution to this common problem too. Not only are wool products super soft to the touch and utterly luxurious, they're hypoallergenic, lightweight, warm, hard wearing and easy to look after. 

Temperature regulating

Thanks to its genius breathable fibre that absorbs moisture when the atmosphere is damp and then releases it when the atmosphere is drier, it is able to act as a temperature regulator. Also, the same wool blanket can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, making you avoid the fuss of swapping your duvets as the seasons change.

It's Hypoallergenic 

Dust mites don’t generally survive in wool as wool’s natural moisture wicking abilities create an environment that’s too dry for dust mites to survive. This makes wool bedding the perfect choice for those with dust mite allergies or asthma. Its hypoallergenic status means it’s not only kind to skin but guaranteed to cause no allergic reaction.

It's long lasting

Another all-natural plus-point of using wool bedspreads is their resistance to mould and mildew. Breathable, moisture wicking wool fibres don’t retain the moisture that mould and mildew need to thrive, which again makes them great for people with allergies and asthma.

Its natural mould and mildew resistance also extends the life of the bedspread to ensure your investment stands the test of time.

In addition to this, wool bedspreads are extremely easy to look after. Although we’d recommend hand washing at 30°C or dry cleaning, and avoiding the use of tumble drying, softener and bleach with our extra fine Merino wool and undyed pure new wool bedspreads.

You're saving the planet

Wool is recyclable, pesticide free, and sustainable. Its temperature regulating qualities also mean you’re less likely to need extra help from the central heating during those night time hours so you’ll save energy and plenty of money on those heating bills.

It's more comfortable

With a deeper rest and improved comfort just two of the wool bedding advantages proven by science, sleeping on wool gives you a better chance of enjoying an even better night’s sleep. It’s one of the reasons why wool is used to line incubators in hospitals across England, Australia, and New Zealand.

Wool helps little ones sleep better, reduce stress levels, feel more content, gain more weight, and grow at faster rates
