Why a wool quilt should be on your bedding rotation

Warm yet breathable, plus our favourites to shop this season.

When the nights get cooler, finding new ways to stay warm is only natural. Whether that’s by finding a new energy-efficient heater for the living room or an outdoor firepit so we can still stay toasty outdoors, being prepared for the cooler seasons is always a good idea.

And, when it comes to staying warm at home, swapping out your summer bedding for a wool quilt is a popular option for many Australian households. So, if you’re on the hunt for a new wool quilt to snuggle up in for your best night’s sleep, then you’re at the right place.

What are the benefits of a wool quilt?

Wool quilts are a highly desirable bedding choice for those who seek comfort and warmth. Below are some key benefits that make wool quilts a popular choice in Australia. 

Insulation 

As it’s a popular material for winter bedding, it goes almost without saying that wool is renowned for its outstanding insulation properties. Its unique structure creates tiny air pockets that trap heat, providing excellent warmth during chilly nights. 

Breathability

Although wool quilts trap heat to keep you toasty warm all night long, they are still incredibly breathable. That means you won’t wake up from overheating in the middle of the night.  

Hypoallergenic

Wool fibres naturally resist dust mites, mould, and mildew, making wool quilts an excellent choice for individuals with allergies or sensitivities.
