Purchasing good quality bedding is an investment that should be made carefully. Choosing the right bedding will ensure that you get a good night’s sleep and that you are as comfortable as possible all through the night. In Australia wool duvets or ‘Doonas’ as they are called are a popular choice and for good reason! If you are curious about this type of bedding here are some of the top reasons why they re becoming increasingly popular in the UK.
1. Temperature Regulation
Wool pillows, duvets and toppers are filled with natural wool fibres that, by their very nature, are the perfect insulators. However, in addition, wool allows the body to regulate its temperature ensuring that you don’t get too hot or too cold. The perfect year round bedding.
2. Moisture Control
Wool has the ability to draw moisture away from the body and allow it to evaporate into the air resulting in less sweaty nights for you. In this way, wool ensures that your bedding does not become a breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites, which is especially important to those with sensitive skin or with skin allergies such as eczema.
3. Hypo Allergenic
Wool bedding is a great choice for those with allergies, especially asthma. Other types of duvet fillings can disintegrate over time and create dust that can aggravate an asthma condition. Therefore, over time, wool will benefit those suffering with such allergies.
4. Perfect for Couples
If you and your partner have differing preferences when it comes to how you like to sleep, wool is the perfect choice of bedding. If you like to be warm and cosy but your partner prefers to be cool and airy, wool bedding will regulate each person’s body temperature, ensuring the perfect night’s sleep for both of you.
5. Easy to Care For
Our wool bedding is washable, thus eliminating the need to have it professionally dry cleaned. Wool bedding does not always require a full cleaning and in some cases, spot washing and a good airing outdoors will suffice.
6. Can be Used all Year Round
Because of varying temperatures throughout the changed seasons of the year, many people switch between duvets of differing warmth ratings, selecting a lighter duvet during the summer and a heavier duvet during the winter months. A wool duvet can be used all year round due to its ability to create the optimum-sleeping environment based on ones body temperature.
Choosing wool bedding makes perfect sense for the aforementioned reasons and many more. Overall, wool bedding is most definitely a purchase that will give you many years of enduring comfort and luxury.
