Why do I need a wool underlay/mattress protector for my baby's cot / child's bed?

Young children are active sleepers and leaks and accidents occur often.  An underlay provides additional protection for your cot mattress and is easier to clean than the mattress itself.

However there are also significant health benefits for a child sleeping on a wool underlay.  Bearing in mind that young children spend roughly half their day asleep, organic wool's natural qualities provide a superior sleep experience because the extra later of wool naturally:

  • helps regulate body temperature and provides better air circulation, keeping your child warmer in winter and cooler (and dryer) in summer,
  • improves sleep hygiene by creating a healthier, drier sleeping environment,
  • is more comforable and helps them to feel snug and secure,
  • is dust mite resistant and naturally hypoallergenic so improves the quality of sleep for children with allergies or sensitive skins

Independent tests prove that sleeping with wool helps maintain a lower, more consistent heart rate so your child will sleep more soundly.

If your cot mattress contains synthetic or manmade products, a woollen underlay will provide significant health and hygiene benefits.  It will provide a buffer between your child and the synthetic and processed materials in their mattress, greatly improving the quality of their sleep.

Can I use this wool underlay in winter and summer?

Yes, definitely!  Wool is a wonder fibre than has evolved over a million years and provides an incredible base to create the perfect natural sleeping environment.  It has an incomparable ability to maintain a perfect microclimate between your body and bedding. Unlike synthetics, natural wool breathes and controls moisture meaning that it has a natural ability to respond to changes in temperature. This unique property helps to keep us warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot because it absorbs moisture from our skin and releases it into the air.  Since the humidity level between your skin and bedding is lowered, you will not feel clammy.  It’s perfect for summer and winter!

Wool has numerous natural attributes that make it one of the most comfortable of fabrics to sleep with.  It is non-allergenic, soft and easy to care for.  Wool contains natural fire retardants without having to have any synthetic chemicals added so provides a safe and secure sleep.
