Product: Nature's Comfort Wool Mattress Topper
Rating: Strong Recommend*
I have long been in search of bedding that is durable, recyclable, chemical free, locally made and will not aggravate my long list of allergies (including down, most chemicals, fragrances and wool). I had just about given up when I visited Moss Envy, an eco products shop for your home and life, located in Minneapolis. They introduced me to the Nature's Comfort wool mattress topper.
Moss Envy is having their annual White Sale from January 12th to the 15th. You can get an extra 20% off bedding accessories that include pillows, toppers, pads, sheets, duvets, comforters, covers, blankets, and towels. This is a once-a-year opportunity to save on bedding.
This mattress topper is encased in a sturdy, well crafted organic cotton cover. In the event that it does tear it would be easy to sew back together.
The topper is made from wool that can be returned to the factory and recycled after use. One employee at Moss Envy said that a customer used it as a duvet after its useful life as a topper was over. I can imagine how this thick, wool topper would make a delightful blanket.
The thought of spending one third of my life in bed laying on bedding that smells like a chemistry experiment is one of the main reasons we sought out this bedding. Even right out of the bag, this topper had absolutely no chemical smell.
When we learned that this topper was locally made at the National Wool Recycling Center in St. Peter, Minnesota, it sealed the deal.
Wool is a difficult material for me to be around because it always makes my skin itch. I have been surprised during the last month to learn that sleeping on top of several inches of wool has caused zero itching.
So far we have only tested this topper during cold, winter months. The manufacturer claims that the topper will feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter. All of their other claims have been true so far but we'll have to wait for warmer weather to see if that is the case. Even if it does end up being too warm for summer, I strongly recommend this topper. Stop by Moss Envy to try one for yourself.
