Wool mattress pads are popular choices for a mattress protector, helping users create a more comfortable and hygienic sleeping surface. Unlike synthetic alternatives, an organic wool mattress protector is natural, non-toxic, eco-friendly, and biodegradable—product qualities that health and environment-conscious consumers look for in modern products. Whether you are looking for a protective layer for your own mattress, a baby-sized pad for a potty-training toddler or perhaps an incontinence proofing barrier for your bed, organic wool is an excellent material of choice, thanks to its many amazing natural properties.
Wool is a popular fiber material used since ancient times for its versatility, durability, and unmatched performance. No synthetic or man-made fiber has been able to surpass, let alone replicate the superior qualities of wool, especially when it comes to repelling liquid, neutralizing smells, and regulating air flow and temperature. An organic wool mattress protector is a great product for preserving mattress quality, able to protect against liquid spills and any other type of wetness, from night sweats to bedwetting. Natural wool fibers retain the ability of sheep’s wool to repel liquid so that spills can’t get absorbed and will instead bead up and then roll right off the material. This is what makes wool pads an excellent waterproofing barrier for beds and mattresses.
An organic wool mattress protector also protects against smells as natural lanolin within wool fibers help neutralize urine smells even without washing. Simply air or sun-drying a wet wool pad is usually enough to get rid of urine smells on the mattress pad. Wool has the natural ability to regulate temperatures helping the body stay warm or cool, depending on the climate. Natural wool retains this ability even when wet (such as when soaked in sweat or nappy leak). Wool is also a naturally breathable material, which helps keep good airflow all over the mattress surface.
