If you’re planning a visit to a sale you may want to consider investing in some luxury bedding and buy an Australian wool quilt while they’re on offer.
It’ll not only add a luxurious layer to your bed but it’ll help you sleep better too. So, the next time you see a wool quilt sale, snap one up as quickly as possible and look forward to the best night’s sleep you’ve had in ages.
Why you sleep better with an Australian wool quilt
Studies have shown that sleeping under a woollen quilt can improve the quality of your sleep, with some studies showing that being completely encased in wool, that is with a wool underlay beneath you and wool quilt on top, you’ll achieve 25% improved sleep.
But why is this so?
- Naturally absorbs moisture as we sleep
Well, for starters, wool is a completely natural product, which helps to maintain your body at its optimum temperature for sleep.
Being extremely absorbent, it soaks up the moisture you lose while sleeping to leave you far more comfortable in bed.
And, as a woollen quilt can easily absorb up to a third of its weight in moisture, you’ll be sleeping in a much healthier environment.
Once you get up, all moisture in your quilt is simply released back into the atmosphere, so don’t forget to open your windows and air off your quilt each morning.
- A hypoallergenic option for people with allergies
If you suffer from allergies, you’re going to love sleeping under a woollen quilt as they’re resistant to bed mites that cause most of the allergies in a bedroom.
And, even if you suspect you have an allergy to wool, as the filling is encased inside a cotton cover, you’re unlikely to suffer any adverse reaction.
- Lightweight, cosy and flame retardant
And if that wasn’t enough, woollen bedding is lightweight but extremely cosy meaning you won’t have to pile on some covers to keep warm.
And because it’s also able to regulate your body temperature, it will keep you cool if you tend to overheat in bed. Plus, as a natural fibre it’s naturally flame retardant too.
More cost-effective than cheaper synthetic quilts
If you’ve resisted the urge to buy an Australian quilt due to its cost, then a sale is a perfect time to buy. However, even if you can’t find a wool quilt sale, woollen quilts can still prove to be a more cost-effective option than buying a cheaper synthetic version.
This is because a wool quilt can easily have a life-span of twenty years or more, which means that you’ll have to replace it far less often that a synthetic quilt which may only last a few years.
So, your sale purchase could be saving you even more money!
