Wool Roots

When laying your little one down for a sleep, surround them in the very best! Heavily-dyed, synthetic bedding can be itchy, laden with unknown chemicals, and all-around uncomfortable. Encourage optimal rest with Wool Roots' cozy and all-natural mattresses and pillows made from ethically sourced wool. This incredible natural fiber is never dyed or chemically treated and boasts a myriad of benefits for the whole family.

In 2016, after discovering that their son had developed a dust mite allergy, Silvia and Viktor set out to get to the bottom of how to treat not just the symptoms, but also the underlying cause of their son's allergy. Though it can feel nearly impossible to keep dust out of a house, Silvia and Viktor discovered a solution the magic of wool! Perfect for bedding, wool offers a natural resistance to dust mites, bacteria, and mold as well as body temperature regulation, breathable insulation, and durability. This discovery brought Silvia back to her childhood in Bulgaria, where she spent summers at her great grandmother's house sleeping on wool mattresses with wool pillows and blankets. She remembers experiencing some of the best and most refreshing sleep of her life. Wishing to share this with her own children, she called her family in Bulgaria to learn more about the traditional wool mattress-making process. Inspired by the desire to keep their own family safe and comfortable, Silvia and Viktor sought out an opportunity to create baby products made entirely of wool, and this vision turned into a reality with Wool Roots!

The Magic of Wool

Each handcrafted piece by Wool Roots is made with a special focus on human and environmental health, ethics, and quality. Founders, Silvia and Viktor, incorporate their Bulgarian heritage into the products by partnering with small family farms and mills in the Bulgarian countryside. The wool that comprises their cozy sleepers and soft nursing pillows is harvested from sheep that spend their days roaming the open meadows, enjoying the fresh air, drinking from natural mountain streams, and feasting on wild grasses and herbs. After an ethical shearing process, the sheep wool is then prepared in an Oeko-Tex certified family-owned mill and washed in a Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) approved washing agent. This guarantees that the process is transparent, free of harmful chemicals and toxins, and is safe for even the most sensitive skin. Plus, this wool features its natural hue, never dyed or bleached, further ensuring that your child will have a safe and comfortable rest each and every night. Let's talk about wool! With so many useful qualities, wool is practically a miracle fiber. Unlike synthetic insulation like polyester, it's a renewable resource with a very low impact on the environment and as a natural fiber, it's 100% biodegradable at the end of its life. The outer layer of the fiber is structured like interconnected scales, which prevent water and stains from being absorbed into the fabric. In addition to being inherently bacteria-resistant, lanolin, the wax coating that helps sheep stay dry, forms a gentle seal against the growth of mold and mildew. For these reasons, wool doesn't need to be washed frequently. and airing it out or leaving it to rest in the sun is often the best and most eco way to care for it. When it comes to sleeping, this natural fiber was built to breathe -- keeping you warm on cooler nights and wicking away moisture on warmer ones! Plus, wool is naturally elastic, providing an amazingly soft, yet supportive feel to every Wool Roots product. This elasticity is built to withstand significantly more wear and tear than other textiles (great for kiddos!) meaning mattresses and pillows lend themselves well to being passed on over and over again. With all of these great natural features, wool is the perfect material to keep your baby comfortable throughout the night! With Wool Roots, you'll rest assured knowing your little one is cozy and incredibly safe as they sleep and dream.
