Wool Mattress Pads

Updated on February 2, 2011

Greetings and welcome to my first hub for the day. This time around I would like to write about an essential bedroom item. If you are looking for quality wool mattress pads, this guide will help you with pertinent shopping tips and product deals. Read on to learn more about wool pads and places you can visit to source some.

About wool

Wool is basically a generic textile fiber obtained from animals such as sheep. Textiles such as cashmere, mohair and angora are specific examples of wool. Because of its characteristics, wool is often used and effective for garments that provide warmth and padding. Wool is crimped, elastic and is often clustered in its natural state which makes for thick, soft and light garments.

Wool mattress pads

As previously mentioned, wool is soft provides excellent protection from cold. This makes it a popular choice for use in mattress pads and covers. Wool bed covers can accent an already-soft mattress with a fluffier topmost layer. It also provides a layer of protection which can prolong mattress life. Most wool pads can be placed directly on top of the mattress without any cover, because they are designed to act as one with the mattress. A cover can be placed on top of the assembly and so forth, as with normal mattresses. The qualities of wool make it an excellent pair to mattresses. They provide warmth in cold weather, but they also stay cool during hot days because of their clustered built, which makes for excellent air circulation. If you want to improve the quality of your mattress, a wool cover is a cost-effective way of customizing and changing the feel of your mattress without having to buy a new one.

Buying wool pads

It is important to get a cover that fits on your mattress. Most wool mattress pads have elastic corner straps that fit them snugly around the bed. Make sure these straps are of quality as they are normally stressed from movement above the bed. You can opt for 100% organic wool because these are naturally non-allergenic and dust-mite resistant. An example of a good kind of wool is merino virgin wool. Also check for the backing of the pad as this holds the wool fibers together. Make sure it is of quality and is tough so that the pad will last long.

Finally, below are some wool pads that you could consider in your quest. Sizes are widely available. Simply click on each product to select mattress size and read more about each product.
