Dear reader, as you remember last time we have been discussing the farm-to-bedroom concept! Today we will approximate to this concept again but this time it will be the wool production and to be exactly the wool mattresses production! I’ve found very interesting information which will be certainly useful to you. Why wool and not the other material? There is a reasonable explanation to this. As we know the story of wool begins in the Stone Age about 10,000 years ago.
At that time the warmth of wool and mobility of sheep allowed the humankind to diffuse civilization far beyond warm climate territories. Today sheep fill our food and fiber needs just as they have been doing for centuries since their appearance. Today wool mattresses are of great demand due to their chemical-free production and the use of organic cotton covers that won’t harm your health. Moreover these mattresses are very durable and springy due to the natural structure of wool fiber which is a molecular coil spring. Wool fibers can be stretched up to 50% being wet and up to 30% in dry condition. Due to wool fiber natural elasticity, the wool mattresses are more durable, springy and soft.
Have you ever thought about why in desert hot regions of the world people wear the wool clothing? Well, there is very reasonable and clear explanation which will reveal you one more good quality of the wool mattress! The wool is natural hygroscopic material! It means it is a temperature regulator as it protects the body in both cold and hot conditions by absorbing excess moisture from the atmosphere and releasing it to the drier environment. Wool fibers take up moisture in vapor form through tiny pores. Absorbing up to 30% of its weight in moisture the wool mattress doesn’t become damp. That is why wool is versatile in all seasons. But amazing qualities of wool don’t stop at this point! Wool can absorb perspiration. As the body secrets perspiration in hot weather the wool mattress absorbs this moisture and keeps the layer of dry air next to the skin. Thus the process of body natural cooling starts. So, drawing the conclusion it is necessary to know that wool holds your body in warm and cool conditions in cold and hot weather respectively by absorbing excess moisture in keeping the skin of your body dry. In cold conditions this helps in holding your body’s natural heat and in hot conditions wool expedites the evaporation of perspiration and absorbs moisture making your skin dry.
