The Physiological Advantages of Sheep's Wool
As a bedding material, sheep's wool offers a number of physiological advantages. Its capacity to maintain a consistent body temperature is one of its key advantages. Because of the air pockets that are naturally created by the crimp in wool fibres, the body is better insulated and kept warm in cold climates. Wool fibres also have the capacity to wick moisture away from the skin, which assists in keeping your body cool and dry in hot conditions. This may encourage a pleasant and restful night of sleep. Wool fibres also naturally resist bacteria and dust mites, which can contribute to improving indoor air quality and reduce the incidence of allergies or asthma. Overall, sheep's wool can create a safe and comfortable sleeping environment.
