High quality natural mattress pad for those who want to avoid toxins found in conventional mattresses/mattresses pads. Accumulated toxins attribute to illness - so better safe than sorry. Worth the price!

Ok, so first off, this is not nearly as thick as the Q&A says. It is only about 3/4 inch at most. If you have a mattress that needs just a little padding for luxury then I would say get it. It didn't provide enough padding for us, but it was very WARM. In fact, we were going to buy an expensive wool blanket, but ended up not needing it with this on the mattress. It's really great for the cold, and we'll see how it does in the summer. Hopefully it regulates temperature in the summer. It is nice quality and I didn't notice a sheep-smell at all.

I have slept on featherbeds for 10+ years, but decided to try this product since it got such great reviews. I have to say that I love it. I sleep great and the wool is more evenly distributed in the baffles than the feathers. The elastic anchors are useless as everyone states, but the sheet holds down the pad fine. This is a wonderful product that I highly recommend.

Beautifully made pad, I was looking forward to sleeping on it! But when I opened it up I was struck by the funky barnyard smell. Thought it needed a few days to air out so I left it open in my guest room. When I came back to collect it, I started sneezing like crazy! It got worse after I put my nose up to the thing and inhaled deeply. I have never been allergic to wool before but this pad has a very barn-like aroma and the wool does not smell clean. I am wondering orbit is even Sheeps wool because only horse hair makes me react the way I did.

Beautiful item, lots of wool cushion. However, the strong smell overwhelmed me when I opened the box and unzipped the pad. I thought airing it out might help and left it in my guestroom unzipped for 3 days, staying out of the room all the while. On day 3 I came back, and took a few deep breaths close to the mattress pad. It still smelled exactly the same - like unwashed wool straight from a farm animal. I spent the next 2 hours in that room doing some ironing, and when I was finished I was wheezing and coughing up a storm. I've never been allergic to a wool clothing or bedding item before and have many wool pieces. I know I'm very allergic to horses, and I'm wondering if there is any non sheep-wool in this product. I also question how well the wool in the product had been cleaned prior to manufacturing.

I've read that a wool mattress pad makes one sleep like a baby. It's true! The first night my husband and I were stunned by how solidly we both slept. YAY!
The wool does mat down after a few weeks but the natural effects of the wool are still evident. Like others have said, the elastic bands are useless. I put this on top of my other mattress pad and it does not move- no straps needed. Have since purchased two additional as gifts for our elderly parents. Can't wait to give them on Mother's Day. As usual, great STP price!
