Companies like Savvy Rest and Land and Sky Organic mattresses are assembled using only 100 percent wool batting for the quilting in their mattress covers. The pure organic wool is processed without using any dyes, oils, or chemicals. Companies that go the extra mile in their sourcing and manufacturing are very proud to to say that their mattresses containing organic wool contains no residues from processing the wool or fillers in their quilting process to give added loft and appeal, which flatten and eventually fail. Wool is simply known for its time-honored warmth, resiliency, and absorbency. You can add to that list an additional level of safety only found in no toxic chemicals organic wool.

Land and Sky’s wool comes from suppliers who take pride in organic production, classification, and methods. The farmers who raise the sheep for wool follow strict methods by keeping the animals free from contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers. When the coat is full the sheep are shorn and the collection is carefully sorted, and washed with only hot water and vegetable-based soaps; no chemicals, detergents, or chlorine bleach. This leaves you with wool fibers that are strong and springy.  Their suppliers card the wool, which mixes up the different fibers creating a mix of the various types of fibers, while at the same time eliminating tangles and removing some of the vegetable contaminants from the wool. The manufacturer then uses this wool to make a no toxic chemicals line of organic mattresses that you and your family can enjoy for years to come.
