The temperatures have dropped considerably (except for you lucky folks in Florida!) and it is important to keep yourself warm during the coldest parts of year, so ditch the Snuggie™ and use something that has been around for thousands of years...wool!
Not just any wool either, good, old-fashioned organic wool. Before the advent of modern pesticides and creepy growth hormones, things were done very simply and The Clean Bedroom does the best job it can to bring you an abundance of organic wool.
Organic wool also has lanolin, a substance secreted through the microscopic sebaceous glands of the sheep, this particular substance has inherent dust-mite repellent properties, so it is a natural defense for those suffering from dust-mite allergies.
For those conscious of bacteria and germs, fear not, organic wool is antimicrobial. Even if there is an accident there will be no odor or mildew, since bacteria cannot grow. This is especially helpful for young children and older adults with urinary continence issues – no need to cover your mattress in some noisy, uncomfortable plastic sheet.
I know what you are all thinking: “Wool? Like that itchy-sweater my grandmother gave me when I was a kid?” Even though that sweater made you itch like nothing else, it kept you incredibly warm without making you sweat. This is because wool has a very unique attribute, it is a natural temperature regulatory material. It keeps you warm throughout the winter and prevents you from overheating in summer because of its renowned moisture wicking properties.
Take a look these products and experience the amazing qualities of wool yourself:
- For you pillow flippers out there, stop spending your time looking for the cool side of the pillow. An organic wool-lined pillow like the Natura DreamMate will keep your head and neck cool and the added bonus of the shredded talalay latex filling gives you fantastic support.
- The Clean Bedroom has completely remade the Naturally Organic Euro-Tufted Mattress using all-wool batting. Wool makes this mattress a little softer, so you have that good, solid support you need, but it feels like it has a cloudy topper built into the mattress. Now that it is made with all organic wool, it is completely dust-mite proof and has the added softness people like.
- Naturally Organic also has meticulously crafted organic comforters, made from all organic wool and encased in a 100% organic cotton covering. They are available in summer and all-season weights. The expert stitching on these comforters prevent bunching and flattening. These are really the true test of temperature regulation and will keep you perspiration-free, while keeping you in deep, R.E.M. sleep with truly peerless comfort.
Keep the 12,000 year-old tradition alive and use organic wool, you shall be truly surprised at its versatility, durability and most importantly, comfort.
