Since 1867, the St. Peter Woolen Mill in St. Peter, MN has been committed to providing our customers with the highest quality green products and services at a competitive price. Our luxurious wool-filled comforters, mattress toppers and pillows have been refined through 4 generations of family dedicated to recognition of the value of traditional wool bedding with an emphasis on renewability and sustainability.
Benefits of wool bedding:
Wool has a natural resistance to mildew. This is possible because wool is a natural wicking fiber. The wool fibers actually allow moisture to pass through without retaining any of the moisture in the wool itself. Mold and Mildew cannot survive without a damp environment to grow upon. Furthermore, the only way that mold or mildew can grow on wool is if the wool is immersed in water which wouldn't allow for air circulation.
Wool Has The Ability To Regulate Temperature. Wool fibers keep a pocket of air close to your body. The coil-shaped fibers naturally wick excess heat and moisture from your skin and create an optimal temperature zone for a good night's sleep.
Wool Is Mostly Non-Allergenic. Our wool is processed without the use of any harsh chemicals such as Chlorine or moth-proofing chemicals. Though a few people have a natural allergy to lanolin (an oil found in wool) most allergic reactions are caused by the toxic chemicals that are used to create wool garments or bedding. We use cotton fabric to cover our bedding and don't have the problems with mold that other fillers can have.
