About Wool

About Wool

People have been living with wool for about 10,000 years, and it is a familiar and safe part of our environment.

Wool has amazing properties, and is far superior to any man made fiber. St. Dormeir protectors will keep your mattress and pillows cleaner, they will keep you much more comfortable, and will last much longer than any synthetic known.

Dormeir Wool all comes from New Zealand, which is recognized as the world leader for the highest quality wools. In fact, there are more sheep than people in New Zealand.

Why Not Polyster?

Polyester was invented about 60 years ago. It is made from elements in crude oil, just like plastics and gasoline. It is known to "sublimate"; that is, it slowly gives off gas. Everybody knows that "New Car Smell". When you consider that you spend about 8 hours every day in bed, we don't think that polyester is a good choice.  Polyster doesn't breathe ~ It doesn't last ~ it packs down quickly ~ it burns easily, unless you treat it with yet another chemical ~ it winds up in landfills forever, and it depletes a non renewable resource.

Why Wool?

Wool is Naturally Resilient.

Each wool fiber contains a spiralling crimp in its structure that acts like a tiny spring. These tiny springs bounce back after compression to their original shape, over and over again. Synthetic fibers just bend. Wool can bend back on itself 20,000 times without breaking. Synthetics less than 100 times. This is why your St. Dormeir protector will keep its puffiness and shape many times longer than a polyester pad.

Moisture Absorption
Wool can absorb up to 30% of it's own weight in water vapour without feeling wet. Synthetics can absorb less than 5%. The natural chemistry of wool is hydrophilic; it likes to bind to water molecules, so it keeps you dry and comfortable all night long.

An average person can produce a pint of water vapour as perspiration during the night. Wool can trap this moisture, keeping the humidity surrounding you at a comfortably low level.

During the day when you are gone, and the humidity level is low, the wool releases water to be dry and fresh for the next night. This is how wool will help prevent that damp clammy feeling so common with synthetics. If you have ever worn a polyester shirt on a hot day, you know what we mean.
