Effect of a fleecy woollen underlay on sleep.


The folklore of ancient and modern cultures has recommended the use of wool as a bedding surface. In this article, the results of an experimental, repeated-measures study of the effect of a particular type of fleecy woollen sleeping surface on observed and reported sleep are reported. This woollen underlay significantly reduced the observed postural activity and favourably influenced subjective estimates of sleep, compared with the control conditions.
