Sleeping Healthy on Wool Mattress Pads

It may seem a bit unconventional but wool can make an excellent mattress protector.

Because of the nature of wool fibers and the naturally occurring lanolin within wool, a wool mattress pad is very moisture repellant (as opposed to our Soaring Heart cotton mattress pad, which is less moisture resistant). When used together with our cotton pad, the two create an effective waterproof layer to protect your bed. Another great thing about wool – it is a superior temperature regulator. A wool mattress pad allows you to sleep at a comfortable temperature, while repelling and wicking away moisture to protect your mattress, shikibuton or futon for years to come.

Wool is functional, effective and comfortable, and also earth friendly and animal friendly. Soaring Heart Natural Bed Company’s wool mattress pads, made of lamb’s wool from beautiful ranches along the Oregon and California coasts, are certified organic.
