Wool perfect for health
What attracts woolen products for years is the properties of the treatment centers. Products made of this material are recommended especially for people who suffer from ailments related to spinal injuries, have neuralgia, or are struggling with cardiovascular disease. In all these cases quilts and wool pillows are even used in the rehabilitation process and recommended as an element of prevention. In addition, in dust quilts do not develop mites, which are the bane of all people suffering from allergies. They also contain lanolin. This fat, which is produced in the sheep's skin glands, effectively improves blood circulation, acts against rheumatism and prevents skin aging. Circulation is stimulated by an invisible micro massage, which is caused when the body touches the surface of the wool quilt. The benefits of this daily massage are enormous. The body regenerates, sleep is more balanced and calm. This phenomenon reduces the risk of myocardial infarction and also helps blood circulation of the brain, thanks to which our concentration and memory improve. Lanolin also ensures that our body breathes the whole surface, which has a positive effect on its condition and is beneficial for people who have delicate skin prone to irritation. What is important for people who are allergic, the wool duvet eliminates positive ionization, turning it into a negative one. Therefore, the skin is less exposed to sensitization, and ultimately the body's resistance is significantly increased.
Because wool fibers have thermal and hygroscopic properties, wool quilts guarantee an unusually high sleep comfort. It is known for poor heat conduction. And although this sounds uninspiring, it is this property that allows you to protect the body during sleep from both excessive sweating and chilling the body. Wool acts as a specific, natural body temperature regulator. Even if we have a tendency to sweat while sleeping, the wool duvet is able to absorb up to thirty-three percent of the weight of the quilt due to its huge hygroscopic properties. The result is a small risk that in the morning we wake up wet and the bedding will stick to our body. Due to the high elasticity of the fibers, the woolen quilt will create an insulating layer, and most of the moisture will be exported to the outside.
An extraordinary advantage of quilts made of natural wool is their high durability and low material consumption. Wool is characterized by high elasticity and even after repeated stretching it returns to its starting size. It is also resistant to tearing and other undesirable mechanical damage. Thus, these quilts look aesthetically for a long time and crumple to a much lesser degree than similar products made of other materials.
Ultimately, quilts made of natural wool are soft and light. This ensures a high comfort of sleep, without a sense of crush and load of the duvet. Surprisingly, they are also sound-absorbing and eliminate harmful UV radiation. And although they may not be the properties that we expect from quilts, it is impossible not to consider them as positives of this material. An important advantage of these products is the relative ease of cleaning them. You just need to remember to use the means for washing wool. They contain lanolin, so that washing will not reduce the properties of our bedding. After washing the quilt, it is enough to hang it in the wet state and wait until the product is fully dried. At the same time, quilts made of natural wool should be protected from excessive sunlight and do not iron. Proper care of the quilt combined with its positive properties will guarantee high quality and comfort of sleep.
