Wool Bedding

We’ve been borrowing wool from superstar sheep for centuries and it’s easy to see why: hypoallergenic, temperature controlling for the cosiest of nights of sleep, sustainable, biodegradable…we could wax lyrical about fabulous wool all night long, but we don’t want to keep you up. All our wool products are made in lovely Yorkshire and freshly made for you, delivered straight to your door within two weeks.

Counting Sheep, and Their Woolly Blessings

There are lots of reasons to love our fleecy friends but the fact that we can use their wool as a sustainable, hypoallergenic and uber comfortable fill for luxury bedding must be top of our list.

Wool bedding offers several benefits. It is naturally temperature-regulating, keeping you warm in colder weather and cool during warmer seasons. Wool is also breathable and moisture-wicking, helping to maintain a dry and comfortable sleep environment. Additionally, wool is hypoallergenic, resistant to dust mites, mould, and mildew, making it an excellent choice for those of us with allergies or sensitivities.

Yes, wool bedding is suitable for all seasons due to its inherent temperature-regulating properties. Wool fibres have natural insulating properties that help trap heat in colder weather, providing warmth. At the same time, wool also allows air circulation, helping to prevent overheating in warmer temperatures. However, we do have different weights of wool duvets available allowing you to choose a weight perfect for the season.

Wool is as clean as a sheepdog whistle. Dirt won’t get into the fibres of wool; it sits on top which makes it super easy to clean and get rid of any dust or dirt.  We recommend that you dry clean our Baa Baa bedtime range.  This doesn’t need to happen very often, but is the best way to clean it. You can spot clean to remove any small marks with a damp cloth. Read here for more details about taking care of your wool bedding.

Wool bedding can have a slight natural odour, often described as 'woolly' or 'earthy'. This scent is normal and usually dissipates over time. Proper airing and regular use can help reduce any initial odours. If you find the smell bothersome, you can consider using a mattress protector or cover to minimise direct contact with the wool bedding while still enjoying its benefits.

Wool bedding is generally hypoallergenic and less likely to cause allergies. Wool fibres have a natural resistance to dust mites, mould, and mildew, which are common triggers for allergies. However, individual sensitivities can vary, and some people may still have allergic reactions to the larger fibres of wool, or sometimes the tiny amount of residual lanolin on the fibres. If you have known wool allergies or sensitivities, it's advisable to test your tolerance or consider alternative bedding options.
