This pad replaces a "memory foam" pad that I had purchased (also from STP) a year ago. Both my husband and I have had back problems in the past, so a comfortable bed is important to us--not too hard, not too soft. Unfortunately, the memory foam "remembered" the center fold from its original packag...

I guess I'm one of the fortunate buyers that received one that doesn't smell like animal and I have a sensitive nose. However, it is a bit small for my queen mattress, but no big deal...I used bungee cords to secure the elastic straps on the corners underneath the mattress (criss-crossed two cords).
It is very comfortable, warm in winter and cool in summer.

This mattress pad is a bit over .5 inches of padding and is comfortable. It is not a major difference but it is noticable. The price is good for the all cotton & merino wool materials and the wool should help with temperature regulation/any sweating. It DOES come with a strange (as 1reviewer said) almost gasoline scent. It really does. I tossed it on low in the dryer with 2 scented dryer sheets and lightly sprayed vinegar on both sides before putting it in. It did not shrink and helped on the odor but did not eliminate it completely. This would be the only reason to consider returning. Once it is covered with a mattress pad/protector and then sheet it is more subtle & becomes a bit of animal smell instead. Otherwise, it is great for those wanting a wool mattress pad & no polyester. Most wool pads are no less than $150 & that would usually be a twin size so this is a good price.

I have another wool mattress topper that is made of just the fur. I got this to put under it to add some extra cushion. This is nice and soft and has a good loft to it. Helps keep the bed warmer in cold weather and if its like my other one it should help keep it cool in the summer. This seems like it will breath really well too.

This is a fantastic mattress pad. The first night I had it on my bed, I slept long and never woke up with the middle of the night chill that I had the previous week or so. I don't heat the house during the night, and my bedroom gets into the 40's in the coldest nights of our admittedly mild winter. Will be interesting to see how it fares in the summer. But I wear wool year round, so I bet it's going to be wonderful! Best buy in ages. Thanks !!
