No natural fiber regulates your body temperature like wool does.
The structure of the washable wool fiber is unique and it allows air to flow easily. Because it is so breathable, it absorbs and releases water vapor from your body. This wicking process keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
You see, when you sleep on a wool mattress topper, your body temperature is naturally regulated. Wool Fleece creates its own little micro climate. You experience a more peaceful night's sleep because you are not tossing and turning putting covers on and taking them off to get the right temperature all night long.
We don't often associate the use of wool in the summer but wool actually wicks moisture from your body so you don't get clammy and sweaty from too much perspiration.
One sole wool fiber can wick 30% of its mass. Now that's a lot of wicking power.
No more sweaty bed sheets! This is a huge benefit on those "Heat Generating" mattresses.
Likewise during the winter, you are well insulated from the cold as the warm air from your body heat is trapped in the air around the fibers, keeping you comfortable all night long. Remember the Micro Climate comment from above?

- Cleaning and Care of Your Wool Mattress Topper
Your sheets and bedding will protect your topper for years to come.
Very little cleaning will be required of your wool topper. You See, the wool's natural low static and lanolin fiber stands up to dust, soiling and liquids.
Yes from time to time, you will want to re-loft the fibers of the topper to restore its natural buoyancy.
One really easy thing you can do it take it off the bed and give it a good whip like shake outside. On that wonderful sunny day, take it outside, give it a good shake and let it bask in the sunshine for a bit while you drick your tea and read the paper on your tablet.
You can also vacuum them with the hose attachment.
FYI!The cotton backed mattress toppers will need to be dry-cleaned rather than washing them in the machine just to avoid any shrinkage of the cotton backing.
Polyester Backed Covers can be machine washed at home in a light detergent (no beach) and fluff dry or hang them out on the line.
