A peaceful and natural nights sleep with Woolroom - how changing our bedding to natural fibres and switching to a wool filled duvet and pillows has affected our sleep patterns and ultimately our wellbeing.Last Sunday afternoon, Bailey, my husband and myself all snuck back to bed. It was pretty blissful to climb under the covers for a secret hour of slumber. We made ourselves a nest and just hung out there for a bit, reading and having cups of tea.

Up until recently though, our bedroom wasn’t such a great space for relaxing in. It always seems to be where anything that hasn’t found a home yet gets dumped, and even though we have a good mattress on our bed we haven’t previously put much thought or consideration into our bedding.

wool week

wool week in collaboration with Urbanara

Did you know it’s Wool Week this week? Me neither till about a month ago. Campaign for Wool are running the 6th ever #WoolWeek to celebrate this beautiful natural fibre, and showcase how much it is loved and used across interiors and fashion.

From wool growers to designers, from manufacturers to brands, they are all coming together to help educate and generally spread some love and appreciation, by holding events, activities and competitions between the 5th – 11th of October.

Savile Row was full of sheep at the beginning of week, and it’s National Woolly Hat Day on Friday the 9th (so if it’s Friday, whilst you are reading this, I do hope you are wearing a woolly hat).
