These comforters naturally regulate body temperature while wicking away moisture, ensuring breathability and a restful sleep. No part of this product is sourced from China. Well-suited for those living in warm climates and for warm sleepers.

The yarns of this wool produced from the Californian Vintage carding machines trap still air, giving it insulating characteristics to regulate your body temperature. It helps keep your body heat in when it’s cool outside and helps keep the heat out when the temperatures rise. With three weights to choose from - Light, Medium and Heavy, you pick the perfect coziness for you based on your climate and your body nature.
Our extra clean wool filled comforters with no pesticides or chemicals naturally repel dust mites, mold, mildew, and moisture. Wool is also inherently fire resistant, providing a safe sleep environment without the need for chemical fire retardant additives. Add to that wool's anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties and you have the ideal setting for comfortable, healthy rest.
None of our wool is ever carbonized or bleached, and sheep dipping is never practiced. We use a medium-fine wool blend, the best loft for bedding--soft, supple, and never itchy. The mill produces exceptionally clean wool, scouring it multiple times with hot water and a mild, biodegradable soap. When washing the certified-organic wool, a natural wool keratin soap is used. The wool is carded multiple times, loosening and releasing any debris, dirt, or vegetable matter without stripping the fibers or completely removing the lanolin. Carding also shifts the wool fibers so they all run in the same direction. The end result is a beautifully smooth, all-natural wool batting with bounce and natural resilience.
Wool is a miracle fabric and has several sustainable attributes: it is rapidly renewable, biodegradable, and recyclable. Annual shearing benefits both the sheep as well as us humans. Shearing in the spring allows the sheep to begin growing their wool in time to have a full coat by winter.Spring shearing prepares the sheep to have at least 1 inch of wool on their coats in the summer. This eco wool company also practises cruelty free shearing and wool processing.
Our vendor uses the finest organic cotton sateen and canvas fabric. Never bleached or dyed, this sateen is naturally lustrous and soft, and our canvas is lightweight and durable. And it's all certified 100% organic. No chemicals are involved at any stage of the process – planting, growing, harvesting, and processing are all handled in accordance with organic protocols. Utilizing farming methods that encourage healthy ecosystems, including eliminating the toxic herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers common in conventional cotton farming, means a safer environment for farm workers, more productive and sustainable soil, reduced irrigation needs, and a healthier end product for you.
Wool has a mild natural scent which comes from lanolin, a natural oil that protects the sheep's wool and skin from the elements and the environment. Approximately 1% of the lanolin is intentionally left in the wool after the scouring and cleaning process. This ensures conditioning effects and increases the longevity and vitality of our wool. We find the majority of our customers either don't notice a scent or find the natural scent to be mild, pleasant, and benign. This scent should dissipate within a few days.
Sunning your comforter periodically will keep it refreshed and revitalize the wool. Spot clean as needed. Treat stains by soaking area with hydrogen peroxide (note, this may cause lightening of fabric). Can be machined washed in cold water. Manually set to soak and spin cycles only. Do not use the wash cycle, which agitates and can ruin your comforter. For stained items, add a dose of live cultured enzymes (such as Bac-Out by Biokleen) during soak. Drape in the sun or warm place to dry. Do not wring or machine dry. Place in a washable duvet cover for extra protection.
As part of our ongoing effort for supporting sustainability, we have cut out plastic covers from our mattress protectors, sheets, duvet covers and blankets and have used reusable, organic cotton bags. For many of our shipments, we use recycled poly bags, biodegradable sealing tapes and reused shipping boxes.
