Will my wool bedding compress?
Some wool bedding products will naturally settle with the weight and the heat of your body. For example, if you take a wool-filled bed pillow (filled with wool batting) and press it between your hands, this is how much the pillow will settle over time from the weight and heat of your body. This compression may take a few months. Alternatively, the Woolly Down pillow (filled with small wool puffs), will settle less.
Settling is not an issue for comforters. For toppers, there will be a slight nesting effect over time.
Is it true that wool contributes to better sleep?
Yes. A three-year study at the University of Sidney addressed the science of sleeping with wool. "Scientists believe that wool improves sleep because it absorbs the sweat human bodies produce during the night, keeping skin dry and comfortable." Other studies have shown that subjects sleeping with wool bedding experienced lower heart rates, indicating a deeper, more relaxed sleep.
