Can't sleep? Look to the sheep.
Did you know that merino wool can lead to a better night's sleep? It's true.
According to results
of several sleep research studies, wearing Merino wool vs. non-wool sleepwear to bed significantly reduced the time it took to fall asleep, which contributed to increased total sleep time and improved quality of sleep. One study found that, in hot conditions, those who wore wool to bed slept significantly longer, reflecting faster sleep onset and waking up less frequently. In both cold and neutral conditions, the combination of wool sleepwear and bedding saw participants have a more efficient sleep compared to when tested using non-wool sleepwear and bedding.
A study from The University of Sydney noted, "Adults wearing wool fell asleep in just 12 minutes compared with 22 and 27 minutes for those wearing polyester or cotton."
This should come as no surprise, as Merino wool's inherit qualities make it the ideal sleepwear for improved slumber. Merino wool naturally offers unique temperature and moisture management
and a soft, smooth texture.
So the next time you're having trouble nodding off, consider wearing garments made from sheep instead of just counting them.
