Wrap yourself in wool this winter

27th December 2010 Print

This winter, wool bedding is expected by many to take off in a big way. Word is quickly spreading about the benefits of sleeping with wool bedding. Not only warm and cosy, natural and sustainable sleeping with wool is also good for you!

Sleep is a force of nature and an absolute necessity for good physical and mental health. Most adults need between 7.5 and 8.5 hours of good quality sleep per night to feel alert during the day. Numerous studies in the USA report that over half of all adults suffer one or more symptoms of insomnia a few nights each week.

Difficulty in sleeping can cause increased anxiety, impaired concentration, impaired memory and irritability. The first step to having deep fulfilling sleep is to make your environment as comfortable as possible and the bedding you choose is key. Wool has been proven to give you a longer, deeper more fulfilling sleep.

It has been proven that sleeping with wool infers a more rested condition due to a more relaxed heart rate. You will have 25% more stage 4 sleep meaning a deeper longer sleep for an altogether better well-being.

Wool works so well because it can absorb up to one third of its weight in moisture, allowing your body to breath and making you feel less clammy. Amazingly enough, a wool duvet can adapt to two different body temperatures meaning that comfort for both under one duvet is at its optimum!

Wool bedding from The Wool Room is also safe, as it is inherently flame-retardant. It is very difficult to ignite and does not sustain burning, making wool bedding the safest choice for all your family this winter.

Like a puppy, wool bedding is not just for Christmas! Wool-filled duvets, mattress protectors and pillows work all year round making you feel cool when it's hot and warm when it's not.

Finally, remember that wool is a sustainable asset. The sheep gets a haircut... you get a great night's sleep, meaning that both you and the sheep are revitalised to meet the challenges of our ever changing environment.

Prices of wool bedding starts from £33.95 for a wool pillow, from online store A wide range of winter warmers is featured including wool duvets, wool blankets, wool scarves and other gifts.
