Wool is the perfect fibre for mattress padding, which is the reason we use wool whenever possible in our Dormio organic mattresses, organic wool pillows and organic wool toppers. It’s a natural, safe and mildew resistant fibre that science cannot imitate for its versatility, practicability, fire retardency and breathability. Wool keeps you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter so it’s the ideal material for organic mattresses. Wool can absorb one third of its weight in moisture before feeling wet, yet water evaporates quickly due to its air channels between the fibres. Its excellent wicking action is perfect for keeping us dry when sleeping. We produce about a pint of water vapour during an eight hour sleeping cycle. Wool keeps a sleepers skin dry instead of wet and clammy.
Wool is renewable and is harvested without slaughtering the sheep. Organic wool is produced on farms where the sheep are raised organically; they are fed and cared for without the use of chemicals. The sheep do not go through routine chemical treatments such as drenching, dipping for parasites, antibiotics, vaccines, or growth hormones. Sheep that are raised organically graze on organic fields and are fed organic food. Only hot water and biodegradable soaps are used to wash organic wool and no sulfuric acid solution is ever used. The wool is then hand selected for carding.
Not only is organic wool the most breathable and insulating natural fibre on the planet, when used properly on an organic mattress, but it’s also a great substitute for fire retardants, as wool is a natural fire retardant. Organic wool lets us produce a chemical free mattress for clients looking for a safer and healthier sleep.
Now you may be wondering how our organic wool is exactly utilized in the creation of our organic mattresses. There are 3 components which go into our organic mattress.
- Natural Latex is used as the core of the mattress.
- Organic Cotton used to cover the entire mattress (also known as the ticking)
- Organic Wool is used as the padding for the mattress
The organic wool is an essential part in adding to the comfort of the natural latex which is used as the core. Due to the natural latex, organic mattresses are sometimes referred to as organic latex mattress or natural latex mattress.
