Wool is the Way to Go | Why Invest in a Wool Duvet?
Good old fashioned sheep’s wool, it’s the perfect filling for bedding. Machine washable, naturally hypoallergenic and thermo-regulating, used in duvets it helps you to get better sleep every night so you can wake up refreshed and rejuvenated.
Still need convincing? Let’s go through the benefits in some more detail.
Machine Washable and Naturally Hypoallergenic
Being able to wash a duvet, which is also naturally hypoallergenic, is great for those who suffer from respiratory allergies such as asthma or allergic rhinitis as well as those dealing with skin conditions like eczema. AllergyBestBuys describes wool duvets as “an excellent natural alternative to feather and down.” They go on to say, “The filling is anti-bacterial and naturally hostile to dust mites. These duvets are safe for asthma, eczema and chemical sensitivity.”
Wool fibres are naturally thermo-regulating, reacting to your body to keep you at an optimum temperature. The same way the fibres keep sheep warm when it is cold and cool when it is warm or as their wool gets thicker, a wool duvet will absorb heat when you need cooling down, and then release the heat as your temperature falls. This makes it perfect for couples who share a bed as it will adjust temperature to suit both sleepers, meaning a more comfortable and less disturbed rest for you both.
How does wool affect sleep?
Sleep is just as important to your health as food, water or exercise but it’s often overlooked. The worldwide average for adults is currently 6.8 hours of sleep with no country managing the 8 hours of recommended shut eye a night, which highlights a worrying lack of sleep across the world.
Researchers at the University of Sydney have found that sleeping under wool can lead to a 25% better sleep with more time spent in the ‘deep sleep’ stage of the sleeping cycle. Taking into consideration the fact that deep sleep is the stage associated with maintaining a healthy heart and brain, boosting your immune system, preventing diseases such as diabetes and Alzheimer’s and helping to alleviate stress which can cause mental illnesses in the long term, this statistic alone is an amazing reason to invest in a wool duvet.
