Cuddle Ewe™ Products
The Perfect Bed Environment
Humans have comforted themselves with sheep wool for centuries. The fibers of wool capture air that acts as a buffer to changes in temperature. That's why clothing made of it - sweaters, suits, socks, etc. - keeps us warm in winter and surprisingly cool in summer. And wool breathes. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet to the skin, and then evaporate it into the air.
The combination of wool's breathable insulating and moisture dispersion virtues makes our Underquilt the ultimate bedding underlayment. With a Cuddle Ewe™ Underquilt between you and your mattress, you are suspended in insulating layers of air held next to you body within its plush wool. You're now nestled in a bed that quickly matched your body temperature when you entered it, and it remains that way in constant, toasty warmth without overheating.
And, the moisture given off by your body is absorbed by the Underquilt's wool fibers while you're in bed and dispersed to the air when you leave it. Your skin and sheets remain dry and you sleep much better.
Cuddle Ewe™ Underquilt begins as millions of pure, cleaned wool fibers obtained from a breed of sheep found in Britain that grows the worlds most resilient wool. Minimal processing, including washing with a mild soap and water solution and bleaching with hydrogen peroxide, leaves the wool close to it's natural state when first sheared preserving its phenomenal weight carrying buoyancy.
You can see in the photo above how it in layered batts nearly ten inches thick before it is sewn within a breathable woven cotton cover and thread tufted to a finished thickness of about three to four inches. The self-binding, intertwined wool fibers eliminate any possibility of voids.
Tufting of the wool ensures it will not shift inside the cotton cover and is done with strong nylon thread without buttons that might otherwise irritate you while lying on your Underquilt.
Cuddle Ewe™ Underquilts are lock stitched with about thirteen stitches per inch. Seams are closely lock stitched (about 13 stitches per inch - that will not unravel). So all the wool inside is there to stay - uniform, breathable, and ready to give you many years of supreme comfort!
