The St Dormeir wool mattress protector is made by quilting high quality virgin wool between two layers of special, chemical free cotton. This cotton is woven in a jersey knit and is used as the skirt that goes around the sides of the protector. It has an elastic band around the bottom edge for a secure fit.
People have been living with wool for about 10,000 years and it is a familiar and safe part of our environment. Wool has amazing properties, and is far superior to any man made fiber. This wool mattress protector will keep your mattress clean and more comfortable. St Dormeir Wool comes from New Zealand, which is recognized as a world leader for high quality wool. Our cotton terry cover is a special type of weave that maximizes absorption, to ensure the driest, most comfortable sleeping environment.
Why St Dormeir?
This protector has been specially milled using a European process. It will keep you cool in the summer, warm in the winter and has natural fire retardant properties. Just make sure you follow the "care" instructions.
Your new St. Dormeir wool protector will, with care, give you many years of comfort. Please note these simple instructions:
Machine wash in warm (Not Hot) water, on a gentle cycle. Use a good quality detergent. Do not bleach, or use a detergent that contains bleach. Use the maximum water level. Do not launder any other items except St Dormeir wool protectors together. Do not overload the machine. We recommend washing a mattress protector by itself.
Wash only in a front loading machine, or by hand. Use an enzyme free detergent like Woolite baby or Kookaburra wool wash. Your St Dormeir protector can also be dry-cleaned.
Hang to dry. Do not use a dryer machine. Do not Iron. Drying other than hang drying will cause the protector to shrink!
After laundering, you will find your St. Dormeir protector will appear to have shrunk a little. However, when you put the protector back on your mattress, it will stretch easily to fit. Our protectors are made this way to always fit properly without bunching.
