After listening to our customers and taking in their feedback, we fully understand what you as a customer want from a mattress, and we truly feel our Ely mattress will tick all of your boxes, including offering some brilliant health benefits.
We are passionate about using natural materials in our mattresses. The materials we use to make our mattresses are not only all natural, they’re also locally sourced. Our natural materials include horsehair, cotton, and cashmere. We also use the crucial product wool when making our mattresses, which provides several great health benefits. This article will talk through the many benefits of sleeping on a wool mattress.
None of the materials we use to make the Ely Mattress contain any harmful ingredients. Many other mattresses are filled with products that produce vapours and chemical by-products which can be harmful and have a negative impact on a person’s health. These chemicals have been linked to health conditions such as certain cancers and infertility issues. With the Ely mattress, you can sleep soundly, knowing that the mattress you are sleeping on not only provides maximum comfort, but is also completely safe for your health.
Dust mites, mould and mildew are all negatives that no one wants to deal with. They can contribute to health problems such as allergies or issues with your immune system. Each of these nasties thrive in moist, warm environments. They will happily fester in a heavily insulated environment such as in the middle of your mattress. Wool offers a dry environment and has the ability to release moisture (something that other common mattress materials can lack). Through using wool as a key product within our mattresses, it means avoiding the potential for unwanted visitors such as these.
Research has found that mattresses made from other materials, such as foam, can cause temperature issues. This is due to the material storing body heat. Because we use wool, our mattresses allow your body to breathe, and will support you to regulate your body temperature as you sleep. Due to its natural fibres, wool is known to support you to stay cool and be breathable throughout the night, to ensure you have the perfect night sleep. Wool has the ability to control temperature, unlike other materials often used (that tend to insulate and store heat). Wool supports your body to stay at its optimum temperature level. Having your temperature regulated throughout the night could have a really positive impact on your quality of sleep.
Fungal spores are what cause allergies at night. Common symptoms include sneezing, coughing or itchy eyes. Materials such as polyester create a humid, moist environment that is the perfect setting for the growth of fungal spores. Wool has the ability to regulate moisture, as well as regulating temperature more generally. This prevents the development of fungal spores in your mattress and bed. Those who are particularly sensitive to allergies may prefer wool, as it is manufactured in a way that eliminates allergens. This is the case even for animal allergies. With these allergens eliminated, wool mattresses are a lot less likely to aggravate or flare up your condition.
When it comes to your mattress, health and safety is another important health factor. Many mattresses have fire retardant chemicals added to avoid the risk of combustion. Wool naturally has a protective lanolin coating, making it resistant to fire without the need for unnecessary and potentially harmful chemicals.
With wool’s amazing benefits regarding – being hypoallergenic and supporting temperature and moisture regulation – it has the ability to support a deeper sleep. Research has found that wool can contribute to a more regenerative, better-quality slumber. A research study found that participants using a wool mattress stayed in stage 3 of sleep (known as deep sleep) for longer. Stage 3 sleep is important for tissue repair and growth. Your immune system also strengthens, and cells regenerate during this deep stage of sleep. Stage 3 sleep helps us feel well rested.
