If you’re looking for winter bedding, a wool duvet could be just the thing to give you a better night’s sleep.

As the nights get colder, it’s around the time of the year when we consider swapping our summer duvet for a warmer, thicker version. If you’re looking for a new duvet this winter then you should consider opting for wool rather than a synthetic fibre duvet. Wool is one of the most effective natural forms of insulation, protection and comfort known to man.

A wool duvet has many key benefits for your sleeping set-up.

Temperature.

Our bodies lose up to a litre of moisture each night, wool is the only fibre capable of desorbing this while maintaining your sleeping comfort. When used in blankets, synthetic fibres, down and even cotton fibres do not breathe as well as wool, and are more likely to trap heat in your bed. Wool fibre helps to keep your body at the optimal temperature zone for comfort and rest. Wool is a natural insulator to keep you warm in winter and naturally breathable to keep you cool in summer. This means you don’t need to buy separate summer and winter duvets.

Durability.

Wool is better for the environment, it is both biodegradable and renewable, but is also very durable. Wool fibres resist tearing and can bend back on themselves more than 20,000 times without breaking. Cotton breaks after 3,200 bends, silk fibres break after 1,800 bends, and rayon fibres break after just 75 bends. Wool fibres can be stretched and still bounce back to their original shape making it wrinkle resistant. All Woolroom’s wool duvets are fully machine-washable and still maintain their structure and form.

Allergies.

Most people’s allergy to wool is a reaction to the many harsh and toxic chemicals that go into the treatment, and finishing of conventional wool garments and bedding. Woolroom products use platinum certified British Wool that is lovely and soft, and most importantly, use no acid, bleach or resins in the treatment process. The duvets are also entirely encased in a high thread count cotton outer meaning your skin won’t be in contact with the wool directly. Wool bedding can also help sufferers of dust mite allergies, asthma and psoriasis get a good night’s sleep.

Safety.

Most synthetic fibres ignite easily, burn fiercely and melt at an alarming rate. Wool is naturally flame retardant, so it can resist flame without the chemical treatment involved in fireproofing. Many people use heaters and electric blankets in the winter months which does increase fire risks, so you can sleep safely at night knowing that wool bedding is absolutely the safest choice for you.

Woolroom have a wide range of wool duvets including Classic British Wool, Deluxe Washable British Wool or Luxury British Wool & Alpaca duvet.
