Natural organic wool is commonly referred to as a miracle fibre. It is an outstanding insulator, excels with moisture control, possesses natural flame resistant properties, is incredibly resilient and a host of several other great characteristics.
For thousands of years man has enjoyed the beneficial properties of this unique fibre. However it is only now in modern day times that science has unravelled the mystery as to why natural organic wool holds the title as the miracle fibre and what makes it the ideal choice for luxury mattresses and luxury bedding products. The answer to the mystery lies in each natural organic wool fibre.
The core of each natural organic wool fibre is exceptionally absorbent – able to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture. Compare this number to cotton which absorbs just 8% while most synthetics are as low as only 2%. The fact is that natural organic wool is the most hydrophilic (able to absorb moisture) of all the natural fibres. Natural organic wool fibre is unique in that it will release moisture slowly by evaporation. It helps you stay warmer in the winter months, cooler in the heat of summer and eliminates dampness in luxury bedding overall.
Natural Temperature Control
As the natural organic wool fibres release absorbed moisture, heat is also given off. In fact, a single gram of natural organic wool gives off 27 calories of heat when it goes from damp to dry.
Naturally Non Allergenic
The keratin in natural organic wool is the same protein as in nails and hair. Dust mites – a leading cause of allergies – prefer a damp, not dry location. The tiny scales which cover each natural organic wool fibre further assist in creating inhospitable conditions for dust mites.
How to choose a natural organic wool duvet for your luxury bed
The natural organic wool fill should be high bulk to retain lots of air for insulation, resilient and light weight for a luxurious feel. A flat, heavy wool duvet indicates lesser quality wool that will not offer the same level of insulation or luxury.
The cover should be luxuriously soft, breathable and allow the natural organic wool fill to contour to the sleeper’s position. If the cover is too stiff, rustles or lacks breathability it means the cover is probably down proof cotton which will cancel out the beneifits of wool’s moisture controlling properties.
