Surround yourself in warmth and comfort each night and wake up rejuvenated each day. The Cuddle Ewe Underquilt transforms your bed into a private retreat where you can escape to a good night's sleep. Placed between your mattress and bottom sheet, a Cuddle Ewe Underquilt is layer upon layer of natural wool batting wrapped in a soft and breathable cotton cover. Made from the finest sleeping wool in the world, Cuddle Ewe Underquilts provide the perfect sleep environment. Only wool has the dynamic ability to support and distribute body weight away from pressure points and tender points, which relieves pain in joints and soothes aching muscles better than any other material - natural or synthetic. Care Instructions: The Cuddle Ewe Underquilt can not be washed or dry cleaned. This will ruin the wool. Wool fibers have small "barbs" that when wet and agitated will stick together much like Velcro. The wool then dries with clumps, making the Underquilt uncomfortable. The best way to care for it is to place an all natural, breathable cotton protective sheet over it before the regular fitted sheet. Approximately once a week, or when you change your sheets, the Cuddle Ewe Underquilt should be turned or flipped. One time from end to end, the next time from side to side, so that all areas of the Cuddle Ewe are used. The Cuddle Ewe Underquilt should also be vacuumed occasionally, using the upholstery attachment. This will clean the Cuddle Ewe as well as draw air through the wool fibers and help keep them loose and maintain them. The Cuddle Ewe Underquilt also has loops sewn into the sides so that it can be hung outside and aired out once in a while. Surface spots and stains can be spot cleaned with a damp rag or sponge and a mild soap and water solution.
