It is very important to create a natural sleeping surface for a baby. If a non organic mattress is being used, we highly recommend a topper to put some distance between your baby and the non organic mattress, which by law contains fire retardant chemicals that have proven to be ill to our bodies.

Eco Wool is used in many of the mattresses and wool bedding that we carry. This wool is produced by Woolgather's Carding Mill in Montegue, CA. It is shorn from sheep from select domestic wool suppliers in Northern California and Southern Oregon, along the coastal region where the fog, rain and cooler weather create wonderfu grazing conditions. Although Eco Wool is not certified organic, the growers are restricted from using chemical pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, and hormones, and they adhere to sustainability and cruelty free standards. In addition, the wool is certified organically processed.
To grow certified organic wool, Eco Wool farmers would be required to raise the sheep on organic feed from the 3rd month of gestation. Instead, these lucky sheep are allowed to graze on lush, open pastures. Eco Wool is tested at the UC Davis Animal Toxicology Lab for herbicides, pesticides, and naturally occurring heavy metals such as lead and arsenic. This wool is the purest you can find, even if its growing is not certified organic. In addition, our suppliers oppose and do not use the damaging common wool industry practices of carbonizing, chemical crimping, dipping, bleaching, harmful shearing, mulesing, and overgrazing.
Your Wildridge Healthy Living product is 100% wool filled and requires special laundering care. Hang your comforter, mattress pad, or pillow in the sun to refresh it. Sunlight is a natural sanitizer. Dry-cleaning is acceptable. Be sure to inform the cleaners of the content.
HOME LAUNDRY INSTRUCTIONS
1) Place product in warm soapy water and gently work up and down by hand through the water.
2) Squeeze out water by hand or on spin cycle.
3) Repeat as above for the rinse.
4) Hang up or lay flat to dry. NO AUTOMATIC DRYER! AND NO FRONT LOADING WASHING MACHINES!
Tumbling in the washer or dryer will shrink your wool.
We recommend having your wool product recarded by our custom processing woolen mill which is the only way to restore it's loft. You should get your wool product (recarded, reworked, reconditioned, refurbished, renewed, restored) every 4 to 8 years. Take care to prevent moth damage if storage is necessary; i.e. cedar chips, cedar closet, moth crystals or freezer. Store in a cloth bag or wrapped in paper to allow for proper ventilation.
Wash by hand in a wash tub or bath tub using warm water and detergent safe for the outside cover. Washing can also be done in a top loading washing machine on soak cycle only. DO NOT USE A FRONT LOADING MACHINE. DO NOT AGITATE your wool product in the washing machine as it will become matted.
FOR ALL OUR PRODUCTS
Unmake Your Bed
One of the best things you can do is unmake your bed in the morning for a few hours, allowing the moisture you gave off during the night to evaporate from the wool bedding.
Sunning Your Bedding
Placing your wool bedding in the sun a few times per year is an excellent way to refresh and cleanse your bedding using the benefits of the sun. Sunning will naturally deodorize, bleach, disinfect, and revitalize your bedding.
Protection Is Key
Protect your wool bedding by placing it inside an appropriate cotton cover that can be washed regularly and act as a barrier for your bedding during everyday use.
- Place a comforter inside a duvet cover
- Put your pillow inside a zippered pillow case
- For mattress toppers, use a moisture barrier and then a fitted sheet
Do I need to wash my bedding before I use it?
No, your wool bedding is ready to use. There’s no need to wash it unless it’s your preference. There are no chemicals located in our production facility, no animals on-site, no finishes used on the fabric and we maintain a Scent Free facility.
Can my bedding be washed & how?
Most of our wool bedding can be washed using our special washing instructions provided with your purchase. If you need a copy of the washing instructions please contact us and we’ll email it to you as soon as possible.
In case of emergency:
- Gently spot clean the affected area.
- Set aside to later wash the entire product once you have received the washing instructions.
- You can also treat the problem area with live cultured enzymes which eliminate odors. (i.e. Biokleen makes a product called Bac Out.) These enzyme products can be found at your local health food store/ co-op.
- If you need another copy of the washing instructions, please contact us.
We believe you will be more than delighted with your fleece topper, but if you are not completely satisfied you may return it to us (in original condition and with receipt) for a full refund within 30 days of purchase.
