natural wool moisture resistant pad

Our soft 100% natural wool water resistant mattress pad is made from 100% untreated, natural wool. The pad naturally resists liquids to protect your mattress. No polyurethane or other synthetic backing is put on our wool. The sheep this wool comes from are free range sheep and are not treated with antibiotics or hormones. No pesticides or chemicals of any kind are used on the range for the shiip. This wool is grown in the U.S.A. The growers adhere to sustainability and cruelty free standards. You can read more about our 100% EcoWool using the "latex & wool info" link at the bottom of the page.

This 100% natural wool mattress pad is the perfect protection for your mattress. It is made with 22 micron fibers and is felted to create a soft to the touch pad that naturally resist liquids, including sweat. Softer than competitor wool pads so you don't get that itchy feeling. Straps hold pad in place on your mattress. No treatments, no plasticizers.

Why use a 100% natural moisture resistant pad?

Moisture resistant pads will protect your mattress from liquids, including sweat, which can stain and make your mattress smell. Our natural moisture resistant pads are waterproof. We suggest using an absorbent 100% cotton pad on top of this pad to prevent you from lying on a wet pad. This mattress pad combination is also a great idea for your child's first bed. Why use 100% natural? Most synthetic moisture resistant pads or waterproof pads contain harmful chemicals and fire retardants which ours don't.

What does micron mean?

Micron is the diameter of the wool fiber. One micron is equal to one thousandth of a millimeter, or about 1/25,000th of an inch. The smaller the number, the finer the fibers, and thinner fibers tend to mean a finer and SOFTER fabric. To put it in perspective, human hairs are about 100 microns and the wool we use in our moisture resistant pads are 19-22. The super soft merino wool sweaters are about 16 microns.

What does felting mean?

The wool fiber is subjected to heat and friction, causing the scales on the wool fibers to bloom and become entangled with one another. This produces a dense, non-raveling material.

Are you allergic to wool?

According to large scale allergy studies conducted at the Mass General Hospital, about 6% of people that came in for allergy testing actually were allergic to wool…. A much smaller number than people expect! In general, people who think they are allergic to wool are not allergic at all! It's that the wool clothing they wear is very coarse and pricks people's skin, making them itch. Wool fibers are not that different from human hair, but they have a lot more scales. Like human hair, there is a lot of variety in the different types of sheep wool. It turns out that the breed and the climate a sheep is raised in affects the coarseness of their fibers (thicker fibers being common to sheep from cooler climates). This thickness is tested by measuring the micron of the wool. The higher the micron number, the itchier the wool. Micron counts in wool have a wide range, the very fine range being anywhere from 15-19 microns, that most people would agree is comfortable to wear against the skin.

How to Use:

Place this pad on your bare mattress and then place your fitted sheet over top of it. If you're using another pad for comfort, place that pad on the mattress first, and then this moisture resistant pad over top of the other pad (to protect it as well as the mattress) and then the fitted sheet on top of both. If you're wanting to protect your mattress from liquids other than sweat, we recommend using an absorbent organic cotton pad along with this natural moisture resistant pad. Place the moisture resistant pad on the mattress first, then the absorbent cotton pad and then the fitted sheet over both of them. If you don't want straps, say so in the "Special Order Instructions" box and we'll leave them off, no change in price.
