Wool Moisture Barriers
Protect your investment because accidents, even spills and sweating, will happen early or late in life... sometimes in-between. A moisture barrier is like a textile insurance plan: you’ll want to have one before you need one. Essential for little ones’ beds.
Protect your mattress naturally from everyday wear and tear.
A great way to safeguard your incredible bedding from the inevitable accidents and to make it last as long as possible from the get-go.
How can a fabric be a moisture barrier? Good question! It’s the wool, plus the way it’s woven, that makes it naturally water repellent; tightly woven and then slightly felted. It lays flat on top of the mattress and is held in place by the fitted sheet without straps. This is a natural replacement for a vinyl plastic or synthetic mattress cover.
The nap of the surface is water resistant and keeps dampness from getting through. So whether it's sweating or children who sometimes “go” in the night - you're covered. These “Puddle Pads” are an essential item for parents of little ones available in crib and bassinet sizes.
For those with children in the bed, Moisture Barriers work best in tandem with a thin cotton blanket placed on top of the Moisture Barrier and under the fitted sheet. The cotton layer soaks up the moisture quickly while the Moisture Barrier prevents it from absorbing through to the mattress.

Natural wool is a timeless option for bedding. It’s actually been used for centuries. Our grandmothers knew the many benefits that wool provides, now you do too.
Why Is Wool Bedding So Great?
Wool is the most breathable filling material available, making it both cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It actually helps to regulate your body temperature.
Wool is a natural material; something grown, not made in a lab. Your body knows the difference. Wool surpasses synthetic fill in terms of quality and durability.
Dust Mite Resistant
Wool is a great choice if dust mites bug you or if you’re allergic. Dust mites can't live in wool due to microscopic bristles on the wool fibers.
Anti-Microbial & Anti-Bacterial
Amazingly, wool resists bacteria. It’s actually both antimicrobial and antibacterial.
Naturally Fire Resistant
Wool is fire resistant, providing a safe sleeping environment. Wool does not catch on fire and actually acts as a natural fire retardant.
A Renewable Resource, From Sheep
Unlike bedding that uses plucked down feathers, a sheep grows a coat of wool annually and is not harmed during shearing (it’s like getting a haircut).
Supports Small Farms And Farmers
Wool is a sustainable product and helps small farmers make a living.
Sustainable And Lasting
With proper care, your woollen bedding can last for decades.
It Stays In Place In Your Bedding
Wool batting, being one continuous piece, stays in place in our products and is hand-tufted to further secure it. This is unlike down bedding which shifts over time and creates bare spots in a comforter.
Certifications & Testing

Green America is a national, non-profit founded in 1982. (They went by the name "Co-op America" until 2009). America's Green Business Certification ensures companies operate according to a “values-based” social enterprise according to principles of social justice and environmental sustainability.

The IOAS is a non-profit certification organization dedicated to the integrity of eco label claims in the field of organic and sustainable agriculture, environmental management, social justice and fair trade.

Eco Wool is produced to the highest standards on local American farms; some of these standards are beyond those specified for organic materials. Eco Wool is not certified organic. At this time very little organic wool is available on the market; almost no organic wool is grown in the United States.
We have access to organic wool from New Zealand that is pure and clean, though due to it being only one type of wool, it doesn’t offer the kind of resilience or bounce that our Premium Eco Wool™ does. Our Eco Wool is a blend of about 7 different types of wool varying from fine to coarse in order to create the most ideal wool fiber for use in bedding.
Our WOOL is Premium Eco-Wool™ .

“The wool mattress pad seems to be of excellent quality and we are glad that we decided to get it to protect our organic mattress.”
“Very excited to have found a company that makes quality products that are organic. After doing the research online I was a little worried about buying without being able to touch the products but I am glad I did. I bought a mattress cover for my 3 year old daughter, a mattress cover for a crib and a fleece cover for a bassinet. My daughter even tells us she likes her bed better it's more comfortable. Customer service is great and its great to be able to talk to someone on the phone to get your questions answered.”

“Keep on making what you love and loving what you make. My baby will be on your products all night and every time she gets her diaper changed, I'm glad I finally found something I am comfortable with.”
Bella Vista, AR
“I bought the crib mattress, crib and bassinet puddle pads, wool pillow, and pillow protector. I am very happy with everything. The crib mattress is the nicest mattress in our house! I also prefer the natural wool puddle pads compared to the noisy and toxic plastic covers available at local stores.”
