It has been scientifically proven, a good, refreshing sleep is necessary for a healthy and active life.

Wool bedding will give youquality sleep.

What is sleep?

Sleep is divided into stages 1, 2, 3 and 4, depending on how deep it becomes. REM stage corresponds to the dreaming stage.

The normal pattern is made up of periods of deep sleep (stages 3 and 4) and periods of dreaming punctuated by lighter sleep and short waking periods.

Although this pattern is fairly stable, the periods of deep sleep and dreaming can be disrupted by unfavourable factors in the sleeping environment. This can lead to a serious deterioration in the quality of the sleep.

How does it work?

The human body is made up of more than 75% of water. We lose 500 ml of water each day through the respiratory system and through perspiration. A considerable amount of this moisture is lost during sleep.

Why sleep in wool?

Sleeping in wool can increase the amount of REM sleep. A wool duvet can provide an increase of 25% to stage 4 sleep.

Wool bedding leads to a better cooling of the skin temperature, in harmony with the natural biological rhythm (with polyester the skin temperature increases) thanks to wool’s natural properties for absorbing water. Result: you perspire less, you lose less moisture. What is lost is mostly reabsorbed by the wool, so you feel drier under a wool duvet.

Also, studies carried out by the Polytechnic of Wales (the ergonomics department) have shown a lower heart rhythm and more favourable microclimates next to the skin in subjects sleeping with a wool duvet, as opposed to those sleeping with a polyester duvet.
