Sleep Cool This Summer with a Wooly Pillowtop

Most people would assume that wool is used only to keep you warm on cold winter’s nights.  They don’t realize how amazing wool is, and that it can actually help you keep cool in the summer.

When customers mention that they are getting too hot when they sleep, we often suggest either the Wooly pillowtop or the Wooly Lite.  Both these pillowtops are filled with plush layers of our organic Eco-Wool.  Wool is a great natural heat regulator, and actually wicks body heat and moisture away from you during warm nights.  (It also helps regulate your body temperature during the cold winter months, so it’s a great choice year-round.)  The Wooly is covered in certified-organic cotton sateen, and its feel closely resembles that of a feather bed, adding a nice, luxurious feel to any mattress.

The Wooly (3”)

The 3″-deep Eco-Wool Wooly is well suited for sleepers who need a softer surface depth or who enjoy a bed with a “nesting” feel. (Depth is approximate.)

The Wooly Lite (1.5″)

What Your Sleep Position Says About You

When you go to bed every night you flop around until you find that perfect position in bed.  A comfortable position is not just your key to a comfy night’s sleep, it can offer insights into your personality traits.

A study of 1,000 sleepers analyzed by body language expert Robert Phipps found that there were 4 main types of sleeping positions and each position pointed to specific personality traits.  How do you sleep?

The Fetal Position

If you curl up into a ball when you sleep you are not alone.  About half of the study group slept in a fetal position.  According to the survey, sleepers who are sleeping in the fetal position are looking for comfort and are often constant worriers.  While they are very conscientious during waking hours, these are people who tend to over think their tasks and daily lives.  Also tend to be shy and sensitive, though they present a tough exterior to the world.

The Log Position

The log sleep position is when you sleep straight in a vertical line, with your arms at your sides.  Nearly a third of the people studied slept like a “log” and this can indicate that they are a bit rigid with their personalities.

The Yearner

The yearner is when you lay on your side with your arms outstretched.  The study showed about a quarter of sleepers sleep in the yearner position. Yearners are people who get up in the morning with an excitement to get out there and chase their dreams.

The Freefall Position

 The freefall position is when you sleep on your stomach with your arms and legs all over the bed.  Only a fifth of the people studied were considered freefallers.  The freefall position can indicate that the sleeper is seeking control of time and space in a way that they do not feel they have when they are awake.

Regardless of what position you sleep in, you should be doing it on an OrganicPedic Mattress.  Discover your perfect position by visiting an OMI retailer near you.  Find them on our Store Locator HERE.
