The Wonders of Wool

Who doesn’t love wrapping up in a warm wool blanket or wearing those cosy winter boots and jumpers). Wool has been used for centuries to keep warm and in bedding because of it’s breathability and moisture wicking abilities. Wool keeps us warm and cosy in the winter and cool in the summer.

Warmth Factor – How Wool Holds Heat

How does wool keeps us warm? Wool has an amazing ability to hold heat in through small pockets of air in the fibres of the wool that circulate heat. This circulation allows heat to move toward you when you’re cold and away from you when you’re hot.
It will draw the excess heat away from you. It will transfer that heat along its fibres and release it into your environment, allowing you to remain absolutely cool and comfortable. This is how sheep survive harsh weather conditions.

Wool also holds in heat through a protein in the wool called keratin. Keratin is actually a characteristic that all animal hair has to help regulate their body temperature. It works as a sort of insulation for your body.

The amazing thing about wool is that, even if it gets wet, it still continues to keep you warm.

The Wonders of Wool

  • Holds it heat. Temperature regulating.
  • Self-cleaning and resistant to mould and mildew.
  •  Moisture wicking. It can for instance, absorb moisture up to one-third of its own weight. Synthetic fibres can only absorb 2-3 percent of moisture before they begin to feel wet. Wool duvets can wick up to 1/3 of their weight in moisture while keeping you comfortable and well insulated.
  • Good for allergies. Naturally hypoallergenic. Wool is naturally resistant to Dust Mites.
  • Naturally fire resistant.


Wool Bedding

Wool bedding is the best option whether it’s cold, hot or somewhere in-between.

  • Wool is good for warm and cold sleepers.
  • Wool duvets are a great option for warm and cold sleepers who share a bed. Wool is believed to create microclimates around each sleeper keeping both comfortable no matter their body temperature.
  • Because wool holds its heat it, beds and bedding made from wool offer a natural COSY NEST where we can sleep well naturally.

    INNATURE use 100% NZ Wool on our Natural Mattresses, duvet inners, underlays and pillows.

This Mattress is made with a 100% Natural Organic Latex core in Medium density.  It is a very supportive mattress with some give – a balance between support and comfort. It is a bit on the firmer side, yet a comfortable mattress for someone who loves a supportive but not 'too hard' bed whilst still seeking good spine alignment and good support for the lower back. It is often preferred by side sleepers who like a "firm-ish" bed, as well as back sleepers and belly sleepers who need to be well supported. If you have some pressure points issues and pain in a shoulder or a hip you might look at INNATURE's softer options which provide more gentle contour support for the body - for example 'COMFI' or 'CLOUD' Organic Latex Mattresses. Or maybe consider adding an Organic Soft Latex topper to this supportive mattress to have the "plush" luxury feel and appropriate support at the same time. Recommended to be used with Organic wool mattress protector or 100% Tencel mattress protector.
