Recommendations for wool fleece mattress pads?

Hello DR,

I have the HLO Fleece topper. It does not add warmth, in my opinion. It does compress or flatten over time. And I do not think it can be laundered in a machine. They have excellent customer service and will send you specific instructions.

Good Luck~

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with this topper. The temperature is one of the most significant considerations for me. I also worry that it could create back pain over time if it gets lumpy, but it seems that it just gets thinner, which would be fine.

Wanted to update this thread as I finally decided to purchase a mattress protector from The Wool Room a couple months ago. I am really pleased with its performance! It does not affect the soft, springy feel of the mattress, and it breathes beautifully. So far the skirt stays in place. We'll see in the long haul how well it protects the mattress, but its thickness inspires confidence.

In fact, I purchased the whole bedding set (protector, duvet and pillows) and couldn't be happier. The duvet is very warm, yet it breathes better than down, and so doesn't cause clamminess.

Hi KBr00ks.

Thanks for taking the time to share a "few months" updates, comments, and experience with the The Wool Room mattress protector ... I appreciate it! :) I am sure that many visitors interested in the same product appreciate it as well.

Which specific protector did you purchase? Are you using it to hold the latex layers in place or do you have a separate mattress protector for that purpose? Thanks so much.

Hey benjammin,

I just wanted to point out that I think the consumer @KBr00ks bought a traditional latex mattress, not a DIY mattress. So my understanding is this wool mattress pad was used as a traditional pad/protector, not used to hold any specific layers in place.

Not all consumers follow their threads after a few months .....so not sure we will hear about the specific one they purchased.

Thanks
Sensei

Thanks. I'm sorry I missed that. I totally understand it was from a few months ago and generally when people are happy they move on and don't check or pay much attention to it. I could probably contact the company directly and get more info. We're probably not in a position to do anything with it right now but I do find the Wool Room to be an intriguing option.

Hi @benjammin -- the specific protector I purchased is this one: www.thewoolroom.com/us/product/us-size-d...-mattress-protector/
"US SIZE DELUXE WASHABLE WOOL MATTRESS PROTECTOR"

And yes, Sensei is correct -- this is for a traditional (factory-made) latex mattress with layers already encased in a cover.

I do still have email notifications turned on, so feel free to ask any questions. :) The company is also very responsive via email.
