Wool Blankets Wool is a prized material for bedding because of both its balanced thermal insulation and naturally hypoallergenic properties. Blankets, quilts and comforters made of wool evenly distribute warmth and wick away moisture from the skin to keep you feeling dry. Unlike synthetic fibers, wool fibers are able to absorb 30% of their own weight in water before feeling wet, ensuring you a more consistently comfortable night's sleep in both warm and cool weather. The natural temperature and humidity regulating characteristics of wool also inhibit the growth of bacteria and mildew, and consequently discourage dust mites - common causes of allergy symptoms. And wool is naturally flame resistant and easy to spot clean. Linenplace offers a variety of bedding made with the premium Australian wool that doesn't feel scratchy or irritating.
