At first it’s cold, you are freezing and consequently you are covering yourself with a thick cover and then –- warm, even hot, you are sweating. This leads to a humid-cold bedding climate. The risk of colds and rheumatism arises.
With the proper bedding content this danger decreases. Bio-active sheep wool is the word. Because, organic sheep wool not only absorbs the humidity, it has a lot more advantages: it is balancing temperature, it has a smell binding and self-cleaning effect, neutralizes bacteria and toxins in and around the bed, is breathable and muscle relaxing, improves circulation, just to name some.
The good characteristics of sheep wool have long been known. But, they especially apply for bio-active, chemically untreated fibers. All times, pure natural fibers protected from wind, weather and cold and even have a temperature-balancing effect in heat.
Thus, sheep wool gained in early summer, shortly before the sheep are shedding their winter coat, is the perfect filling for underlays, pillows and covers.
Due to the scalelike structure of the single wool-hair bio-sheep-wool is able to absorb humidity, like for example sweat, up to 35 % of its own weight. The wool binds the humidity without feeling moist and releases it to the air again. But, also unwanted odors and smells get absorbed by the natural protein fiber of bio-sheep-wool.
Say good bye to dust mites
The proper bedding content is especially important for allergy sufferers. Because, unlike usual covers, especially bio-sheep-wool cares for a dry-warm bedding-climate. Since dust mites are only able to perfectly develop in moist-warm climate, bio-sheep-wool deprives these micro-forms from their basis of life. Furthermore, due to its structure, bio-active sheep-wool is able to absorb, bind and release into the air the main food of the mites –- skin flakes. Therewith, dust mites don’t stand a chance and allergy sufferers may enjoy a relaxed sleep.
Less pollutants thanks to bio-sheep-wool
Something, that a lot of people do not know: from furnitures made of press boards to cosmetics -– they often contain indoor toxins like formaldehyde. Especially during sleep, these toxins may have a harmful effect on our health. Untreated bio-sheep-wool neutralizes these pollutants. Within a couple of hours, even a large formaldehyde-content is lowered by 80 % by binding the toxin and chemically changing it into completely harmless substances.
Sleeping without rheumatism
Take a look around at your friends and your acquaintances: most people do have traditional eiderdowns at home. But actually, these don’t really belong into the bed, because they prevent the nightly skin-breathing. Because, our skin is a huge healing- and regeneration-organ. Especially during sleeping, new vital energy is gained through the skin. But, under eiderdowns you inevitably sweat and this important regeneration-process is hindered. Equally unfavorably are these covers when suffering under rheumatism, which even get increased by the eiderdowns. Whereas covers filled with bio-sheep-wool effectively counteract the pains.
