  2. Why a good night's sleep is so important

    Why it's important to have a good night's sleep

    When we were small, bedtime tended to be a well organised routine! Bathtime, maybe a glass of warm milk…then 7pm, up to bed! Brush teeth, wash face and if you were lucky, being read to for half an hour.

  3. How to choose the pillow that is right for you

    How to choose the pillow that is right for you

    First of all, you need to find one that is the right height for the way you sleep. If you are a side sleeper then, ideally, you will need to look at a pillow that’s medium to firm and high enough to fill the gap between the mattress and your head. The pillow also needs to keep your spine as straight as possible, to avoid neck pain. If you are a back sleeper, then opt for a fairly firm pillow to support your neck but one that doesn’t push your head too far forward. If you are someone who likes to sleep on their stomachs, you’ll need a softer, lower pillow to avoid your head being pushed back and putting strain on your neck.

  8. Why it is important for your little one to get a good sleep

    A quiet cool environment is best for achieving a restful night sleep

    We all need to sleep, it’s a fundamental part of our lives and essential to keep us happy and healthy. However, sleep is especially important for children, as it directly impacts their physical and mental development. There are many studies that show children who sleep well each night are better equipped to handle the day ahead, with improved attention, memory and behaviour.

    As children flock back to school for the new term, now more than ever, you’ll want to ensure that your child is tucked up and sleeping as soundly as possible. The amount of sleep recommended for children varies depending on their age, so be sure to check out how much sleep your little one should be getting in order for you to choose the perfect bedtime for them.

    The NHS recommends that a relaxing bedtime routine should be followed each night, such as giving your child a warm bath, dim lighting to settle them and quiet activities once in bed, such as reading or listening to music. It’s also best that you don’t allow any screens in your child’s room at bedtime, so avoid the use of smart phones or tablets.

    A quiet, cool environment is best for achieving a restful night, and ensure that the room isn’t too light. It can be difficult to keep your child cool as children are less able to regulate their own body temperatures. However, our Little Lana range of certified 100% British wool children’s duvets can help with this as they are naturally breathable and can help with temperature regulation.*

    Our children’s bedding range is handcrafted and is also made with 100% natural products, so there won’t be any harsh chemicals on your child’s skin. Additionally, the hypoallergenic qualities of our wool duvets and pillows help to relieve the symptoms of allergies and asthma, letting your little

  9. How can a wool mattress topper help keep you cool in the warmer months?

    A mattress topper that helps you keep you cool in the warmer months

    Many of us have a mattress topper because we want that extra layer of ‘sink into’ comfort on top of our mattress. It also helps to provide some protection to our mattress. So if you’re considering getting your own slice of extra comfort, it’s worth bearing in mind that a wool mattress topper offers so much more because it has another beneficial function - to keep you cool in the warmer months, as well as keeping you warm when it’s cold.

    Wool is an amazing product, not only is it beautifully soft but it is also naturally anti-allergy as it resists dust mites, and because it is naturally breathable it can also help to stop the build-up of micro-bacteria. So it’s a healthy choice and particularly for those who suffer from asthma or other allergies.  

    The other benefit of this wonderful natural product is that it is temperature regulating and so, it can either dissipate heat away from your body if it’s hot, but also keep the warmth in its fibres to keep your body warm when it’s cold. If you’re suffering from ‘night sweats’ as a result of the menopause, then this is an extra bonus!

    A wool mattress topper will work with your mattress to keep your body temperature even throughout the night. This is especially helpful if you have a memory foam mattress as some types can trap heat when it’s hot, making it more difficult to get a good night’s sleep.

    Our wool mattress toppers are only ever made from certified 100% British wool, from British farmers who we know have the highest standards of animal husbandry and care. Our wool is cleaned at British mills, without the use of bleach or chemicals. We then encase the wool in soft 100% natural brushed cotton. We have been certified by British Wool and are allowed to display their logo on our packaging. So when we say you are buying a product made from 100% British wool, you can be confident that thi
