Organic Summer Bedding: Savvy Rest Woolsy Mattress Topper
Wool for Summer? Yes. Because it's so warm and toasty during Winter, we tend to think of wool as inappropriate for warmer weather, but it's just the opposite. Wool is ideal for Summer because it wicks away moisture and helps regulate body temperature, it actually helps keep you cool.
Wool is naturally flame and dust mite resistant, and it is hypo-allergenic so it's a great option for people who can't handle down or synthetic materials. And speaking of synthetics, bedding can be fraught with toxic chemicals and carcinogens. Organic wool is free of harmful substances that can disturb sleep and your health.
This Savvy Rest Woolsy Mattress Topper is fabulous. It's soft and billowy and comforting. I sleep on a very pleasing mattress to begin with--a Tempurpedic (if I had it to do over I'd go with something more eco friendly, but it's incredibly comfortable). I didn't think I could improve much on how soft and cozy my bed is, but the Woolsy made it even more luxurious and plush, it really stepped up the comfort level. I'm also a bit of an insomniac, so anything that helps me sleep is worth its weight in gold.
This topper is not washable, however, so if you want to protect it you have to place something over it. I am currently searching for an appropriate solution to this and will let you know when I find one. I'd hate to have anything happen to this wonderful bedding.
We spend eight hours of our day in bed, that's a third of our lives. We should have the healthiest, most comfortable bedding possible. The Woolsy is made from high quality organic wool and cotton and will likely improve your sleep, it did for me. Good sleep is critical to rejuvenation and good health and great organic bedding is worth the investment. Find it HERE.
