Because wool has an inherent breathability, moisture management and extraordinary body temperature regulation, wool fibres help to prevent the skin from feeling clammy and helps provide better sleep by up to 25%.
Scientific studies show that wool provides superior comfort in a variety of sleeping environments.
Commonly used in retirement homes and hospitals, wool sheepskin underlay has proven to be better at diffusing pressure points and halving the incidence of lower back pressure ulcers when compared with cotton sheets.
Sleeping on wool also benefits new-born babies. Compared to cotton sheets, new-born babies were more settled when sleeping on wool while the rate of weight gain in underweight new-borns was 61% higher.
The innate chemical structure makes wool naturally flame resistant. Widely used in public areas, wool is harder to ignite and does not stick to the skin like many common synthetics.
