The amazing wicking qualities of wool will keep you naturally dry and a topper is easier to air than a mattress or futon. However, we do recommend the use of a protector over the mattress and topper.The super topper is new to the Australian marketplace. Our factory has developed the technique to fill them with a whopping 1500gsm of pure fleece wool, providing guaranteed luxury.
The Demeter certified wool used in all Blessed Earth’ pillows quilts and toppers is from Cowobbee Pastoral Company, Oberon NSW. The superb, 400 thread count organic sateen outer covering is light and fine enough to resist wool "creep" through the fabric. These are the finest wool bedding products in the world and they cannot be compared to cheap imports claiming to be made in Australia. Currently the central layer of carded wool in the topper is organically scoured conventional wool.
Toppers add wonderful comfort and relief for sore joints and at the same time will keep your mattress or futon completely dry. They are especially recommended for convalescents and are also perfect for softening an old or hard bed. The filling is high micron count white Suffolk fleece wool that has been cleaned with bio-degradable, approved organic detergents and the outer casing is made from certified organic 400 thread count sateen finish fabricThe unique insulation qualities of wool will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.
Please Note: we do not advise washing of your topper. It is normally placed under the mattress protector which is washed. Regular airing in sunshine is a great way to freshen up and sanitise your topper.
A note about scouring: Scouring is the process by which wool is cleaned. The conventional process is to "carbonise" it using sulphuric acid, which dissolves all vegetable matter that might be contained in the wool. Obviously, we refuse to use that process and as a consequence there may be occasional impurities in the wool. which can show through the cover. Similarly, the covers on all our wool bedding products are unbleached organic cotton. Consequently there can be the occasional slight mark on the product which would normally be bleached out in a conventional product. Please regard these as beauty spots - further evidence of the purity of the product you are buying.

Just a quick email to let you know that the recent purchase I made on behalf of my elderly mother (now 94), was a great success. When asked, my mother said "it was like sleeping on a cloud" - how's that!!
I thought the quality of the product was outstanding, beautifully made and lovely to handle. Thanks again, IB VIC
