O-Wool Mattress Pads are Divine

organicmattressSleeping in and on organic wool changes your life. Wool regulates body temperature, wicks away moisture, naturally repels wetness, insulates against both hot and cold, and can absorb up to 30 percent of its weight in moisture. Its structure allows moisture to quickly evaporate when exposed to air, inhibiting the growth of mildew and discouraging the presence of dust mites.


Organic wool mattress pads are an indispensable base and starting point for cocooning yourself in wool when you sleep. Besides how wonderfully they help you feel, they protect mattresses and have very functional benefits in that they are naturally flame resistant and inhibit the growth of mildew.

Vermont Organic Fiber Company, the nation’s leading organic wool provider, has launched a new line of soft, moisture-absorbing O-Wool mattress pads for baby through adult.

organiccribThe O-Wool mattress pads use wool from sheep raised to the USDA’s organic livestock standards and processed in the Northeast U.S. As an awesome assurance for consumers, they are finished to the Oeko-Tex Standards 100, which requires textile products be tested to ensure that they are free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances known to be detrimental to human health.

What more could you want for something you’ll lay on every night, probably for the rest of your life, since they last so long?

The cost for O-Wool mattress pads range from $45 for Puddle Pads to $250 for King sizes, the lowest costs for such products on the market.
