We all know the importance of getting a good night’s sleep, but despite all of the sleep hacks, pills, and gadgets, actually getting a good night’s sleep remains a constant mystery.
But here’s one trick that’s scientifically proven to work! And it involves what you wear to bed.
Enter merino wool - nature’s miracle fiber.
Researchers from Australia found that sleeping in merino wool pajamas instead of cotton can give a person up to 15 minutes’ extra sleep. That’s 15 more minutes of restorative, cognitively beneficial sleep each night. Lifechanging.
They also found, across all age groups that people fall asleep faster when wearing wool - almost 30 minutes faster in some cases.
How Merino Wool Improves Sleep
MERINO WOOL IS TEMPERATURE-REGULATING
One of merino wool’s most amazing qualities is that it is temperature-regulating. Merino wool helps the body adjust to a “thermal comfort zone”, keeping you cool when you’re hot and warm when you’re not.
You not only fall asleep quicker, sleep longer, but also have deeper, better quality sleep.
MERINO WOOL KEEPS YOU DRY
In addition to regulating your body temperature, merino wool is also moisture-wicking. This helps with the thermal regulation and night sweats. For babies, if merino does end up wet, your child will stay warm, thanks to its superior insulating powers, (unlike cotton and synthetics).
MERINO WOOL IS NATURALLY FIRE RETARDANT
You can’t beat merino wool as the best choice for the healthiest, safest, and most comfortable fiber for your pajamas.
While wool may ignite if exposed to naked flame, due to its natural properties, it won't support the flame and will instead smolder. Merino wool is self-extinguishing and also produces less smoke and no toxic gas unlike synthetic fibers.
MERINO WOOL IS ASTHMA AND ALLERGY SAFE
Merino wool feels incredibly soft and gentle against the skin. Non-irritating to even sensitive skin, it is especially good for babies and those who suffer from eczema or allergies. It is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal.
MERINO WOOL IS PLANET FRIENDLY
Merino wool is a natural, biodegradable and renewable fiber. Not only is it the best choice for your sleepwear year round, it’s the best choice for the planet.
Sleep Safe and Sound in Merino Wool
With its natural attributes, merino creates the perfect sleeping environment that has been scientifically proven to improve the sleep patterns and quality for both children and adults.
