Organic wool vs Washable Wool 07 Sep 2018 19:18 #1

I gather from posts like this one that one of the advantages of wool mattress pads and protectors is better temperature regulation. But is there any difference between organic and washable wool on this point? I've seen some vague references to washable wool sleeping warmer than organic, but nothing definite.

Organic wool vs Washable Wool 11 Sep 2018 08:17 #2

Hello Ty05, Sorry for the tardy reply on this one -- we too were searching for definitive references regarding this subject.

Anecdotally washable wool does sleep a bit hotter than organic, this is based on feedback from our customers and personal experiences. I don't know that it is unreasonable to assume that the Hercosett polymer used would impair the wicking ability of the wool fibres. That being said, I haven't found any definitive evidence that this is the case.

Choosing between these materials really comes down to final users. Yes, it would be great to have your toddler in a 100% organic sleep envelope, but, is it more sensible to choose a slightly less natural product, that won't be necessarily be wrecked by a simple childhood accident or illness.
