Yes, that's wool's main benefit! Our wool duvets help regulate your body temperature while you sleep because of their natural breathability and ability to wick moisture. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, which can help prevent you from overheating and sweating.
Wool duvets are best suited for those who prefer natural and sustainable bedding, and those seeking a duvet that can help regulate their body temperature all through the night. Wool duvets are especially popular with those who sleep hot or cold, as the wool fibers help to wick away moisture and regulate body temperature, thereby keeping the sleeper snug and comfortable all night long.
Wool is also a hypoallergenic natural fiber that resists mold, mildew and dust mites, making wool duvets a good choice for asthmatics and allergy sufferers.
In addition, wool duvets are an eco-friendly and sustainable choice, as wool is a renewable and biodegradable material that requires less energy to produce than synthetic materials.
You should dry your sheepskin comforter as soon as possible after washing.
When doing this, remember that sheepskin comforters should never be put in the dryer or placed in direct sunlight. Instead, you should stretch your wool comforter over some lines in a shady place.

We currently have two sizes:
• 150x200 cm, this is a general European size for a mattress 90 cm wide.
• 160x210 cm, this is a standard Swiss size for a mattress 90 cm wide.
If you have a two-person mattress, we advise buying two one-person duvets. You will both sleep better, since your partner can’t pull the duvet to his or her side anymore.
In addition to the size of the bed, there are two other factors to consider. First, how much of the duvet you want to fall out on each side of the bed and secondly how much you or you and your partner move around at night.
We recommend the following:
• for a single bed of 80x200 cm, 90x200 cm, and 140x200 cm, we recommend a 140x200 cm duvet
• for more comfort in a single bed of 80x200 cm, 90x200 cm, and 140x200 cm, we recommend a larger duvet, as in160x210 cm (Swiss standard size)
• if you don't want your duvet to hang on the floor next to your bed, a duvet of 135x200cm or 140x200 cm for a double bed of 120x190-200 cm
• On big beds, like those sized 160x200, 180x200 and 240x240, you can use two 160x210 cm duvets.
• a 240x240 cm size duvet for a double bed of 140x190 or 140x200cm, if you want your duvet to cover or even envelop you under all circumstances
Wool duvets are considered hypoallergenic because wool fibers naturally resist dust mites, mold, and bacteria. However, some people may still be allergic to wool, so it's important to test for any allergies before purchasing a wool duvet. Those whose skin doesn't agree with wool have no reason to worry, however, as your skin doesn't come into contact with our wool duvet due to our soft cotton cover.
A wool duvet is a type of duvet made from natural wool fibers. Wool duvets are different from down duvets, which are made from bird feathers, and synthetic duvets, which are made from man-made materials. Wool duvets are known for their natural breathability, ability to regulate body temperature, and moisture-wicking properties.
Our Zizzz duvets with Swisswool are made in Switzerland.
Our wool has been washed to remove the slight odour that some wool duvets have due to the natural lanolin in the wool fibres, so this is not an issue.
Keeping your duvet clean and well-maintained is important for both longevity and hygiene. Monthly airing is a simple and effective way to keep your duvet clean in between washes. As we sweat when we sleep, airing your duvet will help eliminate the humidity that accumulates during the night, making it easier to kill dust mites and bacteria.
When airing your duvet, avoid beating or vacuuming it, as this can damage the feathers and affect their shape. Instead, simply hang it outside on a sunny and breezy day, or in a well-ventilated room, to allow the fresh air to circulate and remove any moisture.
In addition to airing your duvet, it's important to follow the care instructions on the label. Most duvets can be washed and dried in a large-capacity machine, but be sure to use a gentle detergent and avoid high heat settings to prevent damage to the feathers. We also recommend using a duvet cover to protect your duvet and reduce the frequency of washing.
By following these simple tips and taking good care of your duvet, you can ensure that it stays clean, comfortable, and hygienic for years to come.
Synthetic duvets are generally cheaper than natural duvets, but wool duvets are often roughly equal in price to down duvets. The price depends on the quality of the wool and where the duvets are manufactured.
