Does quarantine have you itching to add some fresh finds to your space to elevate the look and feel of your home? Or maybe you’ve recently moved and are excited to dive into decorating a blank slate. Whether you’re new to DIYing your decor style or are a long-time customer at your local home decor boutiques, I feel inspired to shed some light on wool – no pun intended.

Second to spring cleaning, the fresh start of a new year can bring so much motivation to make updates and changes to your space. And to help make it easier for you to zero in on the single best bedding choices for you and your family, I’m excited to share a list of 4 irresistible reasons to choose wool when out on your next shopping trip.

Say Goodbye to Sleepytime Sneezes

Almost all non-wool pillow fillings are made using synthetic materials and treated using harsh chemicals, which doesn’t exactly sound like a safe way to sleep soundly for 8 hours a night. One of the most incredible benefits of wool, especially when it comes to bedding, is that it’s hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant. If you or your family has allergies, or are prone to sneezing and irritation from traditional bedding materials, wool might just be the perfect answer to a safe and sound night’s sleep. Wool’s hypoallergenic qualities alone are enough for most people to make the switch and never look back, but if you aren’t already convinced, we’ve got four more wool facts that’ll be sure to change your mind.

Rest Easy with Flame Retardant Bedding

Remember those synthetic materials and harsh chemicals we mentioned earlier? The ones that most store-bought pillows are stuffed full of? I wouldn’t recommend them for a number of reasons, but one of those reasons is that pillows are legally not required to meet any flammability standards. Candle lovers and nighttime readers are sure to love the fact that wool is naturally fire-resistant, with difficult-to-ignite fibers, wool can be self-extinguishing in many situations. While a fire in the home is one of the most terrifying things a family can experience, you can worry less about the candles, lamps, or electronics that you keep near your bed, as they pose little risk of igniting a wool pillow or wool comforter.

Climate Control Made Easy

This feature is an all-time fan favorite when it comes to wool comforters and pillows. In the ever-growing list of pros and cons (and let’s be honest, it’s pretty much all ‘pros’ at this point), the climate control benefits of wool is one of the coolest – again, no pun intended. Did you know that your body sheds TONS of moisture while you sleep? If your bedding is made of the wrong materials, you might be sleeping in a moist, uncomfortable environment. This can cause your heart rate to rise and lead to a restless night of sleep. But wool…the unsung hero of bedtime. Wool bedding absorbs your excess moisture as needed, making it so much easier for your body to regulate temperature, fall asleep, and stay asleep during the night. So if you were under the impression that wool would make you sweat while you slept, myth: busted.

Deeper Sleep, Steady Heart Rate

As we mentioned before, a moist environment can lead to an increased heart rate and blood pressure. Thanks to the Polytechnic Institute of Wales, we know that those who sleep in wool bedding experience naturally lower heart rates, which means deeper sleep and an energized morning.

If these reasons alone weren’t enough to convince you to make the switch to wool bedding for your next decor refresh, we’re not sure what will. Wool pillows and comforters will help you sleep more soundly, keep the sleepytime sneezes far, far, away, and keep your home feeling a little more safe and sound.
