Healthy Sleep...

Wooly Tips

Pull your duvet down over the foot of your bed during the day, and open the curtains in the bedroom to allow sunlight in! This will help to keep your bed and bedding fresh and microbe free by helping moisture trapped in your bed during sleep to evaporate.

Healthy Sleep For Your Baby

Providing baby with a healthy environment will help to keep your baby healthy, from enfancy to adulthood, and develop positive sleeping habits from the very beginning.

Using a Superwash Wool Overlay on your baby’s bed provides a barrier between your baby and the bed. Standard crib mattresses can contain chemicals that can affect your baby over time. A wool overlay allows air to circulate freely around your baby. This helps to keep harmful chemicals from accumulating where baby can breathe them in.
Or get the best solution for your baby's mattress: an organic cotton, wool and natural gold latex filled mattress!
For families that choose to co-sleep, a wool overlay will help to keep moisture from building up, providing a more comfortable environment for the whole family.
  • Always put babies on their backs when sleeping
  • Never use a hand-me-down bed for your bab y, as the materials in standard baby beds break down over time and off-gas potentially harmful chemicals in higher quantities
  • Always keep bedding clean and dust free
  • Make sure there is good air circulation in your baby’s room

Healthy Sleep For Your Children

bamboo glisteningContinuing to provide a healthy sleep environmant for children by providing an excellent sleeping environment is important for their longterm health. A sleeping environment free of PBDEs, flame retardants, and other noxious chemicals, along with actively healthy choices in bedding and environment, help children to:

  • Keep at a consistent temperature overnight
  • Learn proper sleeping position for optimal spinal health
  • Avoid breathing difficulties and other health issues

Children who sleep well have fewer health and behavioural problems then children who have difficulty sleeping, and providing a chemical free environment supports a good nights sleep.

Healthy Sleep For You

At night, the average adult loses about a litre of water through perspiration and exhalation. This added moisture can cause you to feel cold, clammy, and generally uncomfortable, and does not contribute to a good sleep. It can also contribute to the growth of mold, bacteria, fungus, and create a hospitable environment for dust mites.

Wool filled, breathable, natural bedding, is moisture wicking, antimicrobial, inhospitable to dust mites, and will keep you at a consistant temperature, helping you to get the good night's sleep that you need to care for yourself and your family.
