WHO ARE THESE DUST MITES?
Human beings have always lived with dust mites, which are present in even the cleanest of dwellings (bedding, curtains, teddy bears, sofas, carpets or mats).
In our beds, dust mites are particularly attracted to the dust and the confined and warm moisture in our bed, in addition to human skin flakes (skin, hair and nail debris) that we shed in our sleep. There isn’t more dust mites in wool than in feathers (quite the contrary as feathers, as they age, produce more dust) or in synthetic material.
WHICH DUVET SHOULD YOU OPT FOR IN CASE OF AN ALLERGY?
If you are allergic to dust mites, we would urge you to adopt our washable and anti-dust mite WOOL DUVETS. The washable wool in these duvets, in all our Lanado PILLOWS and washable & anti-dust mite WOOL DUVET FOR BABIES has undergone anti-dust mite & anti-bacterial treatment with ESSENTIAL by Proneem – 100% of the ingredients in this treatment are NATURAL in origin.
One rule to keep in mind: all LANADO products stuffed with machine-washable wool (with wool setting) have undergone ANTI-DUST MITE treatment. “Non-washable” products are not treated to provide a more natural option for those who so desire.
Fortunately, most of us are not allergic to dust mites and live in harmony with them. For such people, wool duvets that are certified Organic Textile are ideal. They are not treated against dust mites, their maintenance simply involves aerating regularly. In case of an incident, dry cleaning is recommended.
The COMFORT MATTRESS TOPPERS (non-washable in the machine with wool setting) are also not treated against dust mites.
