Studies show that wool bedding can lead to a better night’s sleep. With its temperature-regulating properties, wool keeps you toasty in the winter and cool in the summer. Its moisture-wicking abilities keep your bed dry, comfortable, and allergen-free. Air also passes through wool bedding easily thanks to the unique structure of wool fibers, adding more breathability.
Wool can be found in pillows, comforters, blankets, throws, and even mattress toppers like our Wool Mattress Topper at Peacock Alley. Handmade using the finest grade of 100% USA wool, it features a 2-inch pile that’s temperature-regulating, non-allergenic, and environmentally safe, promising a sleep experience like no other.
Hikers, backpackers, mountain bikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts often wear wool base layers to keep them warm and dry as they tackle ever-shifting weather conditions — from rainy and freezing to sunny and high temperatures. This wool layer naturally adjusts to the body’s thermal balance, making it perfect for high-performance apparel. Wool is also lightweight and easy to pack, providing comfort minus the bulk.
Wool Home Insulation
Wool can also act as a natural insulation in homes. It's an environmentally friendly option for starters, and it effectively blocks out noise while keeping heat and cool air inside.
Wool insulation regulates humidity and prevents mold. The moisture content in each sheep wool fiber also makes it naturally fire-resistant. Not to mention, it's safer and healthier than traditional insulation. Installers don't need protective gear when putting it into the home's walls.
