What goes into our beds?

NaturalUsing a combination of wool and natural latex has several advantages

• It helps control humidity and temperature

• It provides comfortable support without extra pressure
• It’s anti-static, helping you to de-stress
• It’s dust repellant, reducing likelihood of an allergic reaction
• It’s naturally anti-bacterial, with no harmful vapours

No wonder you sleep so soundly on a Dreamwool mattress!


Imitations never really work. Real is best.

We use 100% Merino wool in our mattresses. It’s the best quality. That means it retains its naturally springy texture and doesn’t squash into a solid matter like lower quality wools can. If you try to ‘cheat’ and use lower quality wool and polyester, you just don’t get the real feel.

Merino wool fibres are the optimum material for bedding in our opinion. That’s because of our greater fibre density we can draw more moisture vapours away from the body, removing clamminess and allowing you to sleep cooler in summer and warmer in winter.


At Dreamwool, we put, on average, 5 times more wool into our mattresses than the required standard.

Wool is truly one of nature’s greatest inventions. The natural crimp of the fibre cushions the body in a way that synthetics can only struggle to emulate. Unlike other manufacturers, we never mix our wool with synthetics to pad it out. That might deceive you when you’re in the showroom, but the difference would be very clear after only a few night’s use.

Remember, we promise ten years out of our beds so we can’t afford to cut corners on quality!

And cutting on quality, cuts on performance too. “What?” you say, “How does a bed perform?”. Well there are obvious comfort factors, but beyond that you need to consider how your bed responds to physiological considerations and the cultivation of sleeping ‘environments’.

It’s probably not a surprise to you that people loose moisture while they’re sleeping. But you probably hadn’t really thought about it, or considered it particularly important.


Believe it or not, the average person loses about 200ml to 500ml of moisture in perspiration each night. That’s about as much as two or three glasses of water.

However, wool has the natural ability to absorb this moisture and even out your body’s temperature so your sleep is not disturbed. Synthetics don’t absorb moisture so readily, which results in fluctuating temperatures and a clammy feeling. Relaxation is disturbed and sleep interrupted.

Quite simply, we think wool provides a drier, healthier sleeping environment.
