At MiniJumbuk, we love wool! Summer, winter and all seasons in between, wool is our choice of fibre for bedding and sleepwear. While many people are familiar with the idea that wool will keep you warm and cosy on the coldest of nights, fewer realise that wool is great all year round. Wool, an amazing natural fibre, offers many unique properties that mean it can not only keep you warm, but it can also help prevent overheating and keep you cool in warmer weather.
Wool is the naturally renewable fleece from sheep. It has many exceptional qualities that can help to balance your body temperature as you sleep and make it ideal for use in both summer and winter. Whether you are a hot or cold sleeper, a wool quilt or wool pyjamas will suit your sleep style.
So what makes wool perfect for year round use?
Wool is a natural fibre, which means the wool is breathable, and it is this breathability that helps to regulate your temperature as you sleep. Wool insulates to keep you warm. The crimped wool fibres trap your body heat in the air pockets between them, creating an insulating layer to keep you warm against the cold.
Wool is both hydroscopic and hygroscopic. These terms refer to wool's ability to both absorb excess moisture and to then release that moisture into the atmosphere. This supports temperature regulation,drawing perspiration away from the body when you are too warm and helping to cool you as that moisture evaporates.
No more alternating between hot and sweaty and cold and shivering. These characteristics combine perfectly to offer moisture management all night long. And when it comes to sleepwear, wool is soft and elastic making it gentle on your skin and exceptionally comfortable to wear.
So if you are looking to improve your sleep all year round, choose to sleep with wool. Discover the MiniJumbuk SLEEPsystem – undisturbed, you will sleep deeper, and wake refreshed surrounded by a wool quilt, mattress topper and pillow.
