But why wool?

Studies have shown that sleeping with wool can have positive effect on your health. It can lower heart rate, and increase REM sleep.

Icelandic wool is thermo-regulating and therefore suitable for all seasons. When you are cold, the wool warms you without causing clamminess, thanks to moisture-wicking benefits which is one of the big advantages of sleeping surrounded by wool.
