- Encased in 100% natural cotton percale.

- 100% Shropshire wool is a natural temperature regulator fiber with the ability to wick away moisture from the body, especially the head and torso where large quantities of moisture are produced even when you are asleep.
- Wool is a wonderful insulator, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter without overheating. Another great property of wool is that it is naturally resistant to fire, mold, mildew, and dust mites.
- Wool has been proven to increase the duration of the most beneficial phase of sleep known as REM (rapid eye movement).
- Washable (see care instructions).
- Easy to use: simply place directly on top of our mattress, cover in your favorite sheets!
- Last for decades when properly cared for. Wool out-performs other fibers used for bedding.
- Because of all their amazing properties, we believe wool bedding to be far superior to down or any synthetic fiber or other natural fibers when it comes to bedding
Step 1: Un-make your bed at least once a week to allow trapped moisture to be released, refreshing you bedding. Step 2: Regular sunning and airing. The sun naturally revitalizes and disinfects wool bedding. Step 3: Machine wash in cold water on gentle cycle. Air dry only. Do not use dryer. Step 4: Spot clean with soft brush and mild detergent/water. Allow the product to air dry completely. Step 5: Dry Clean. When washing natural fibers such as cotton and wool, you can expect some shrinkage to occur. It is quite normal to expect shrinkage in washing, sometimes as much as 5-6%. Some shrinkage caused by washing can usually be regained by ironing the damp fabric in the direction of the shrinkage while gently stretching it. Dry cleaning may also cause some shrinkage.
