I use wool longies and covers for our baby over cloth diapers to prevent nighttime leaks, so I'm familiar with the "magic" qualities of wool (more on that in a moment). Why I waited so long to add wool to our bed, I'll never know! This comforter is in a luxuriously soft cover. The cover is tufted (it appears by hand), keeping the wool well in place. The wool itself is scoured in a responsible way and is a breed of sheep that lends satisfyingly high loft. There is NOT a sheepy smell. When you get in bed, this all-season version has a really nice weight to it (I'm the type who can't sleep without the weight of covers). The next thing you notice after a few minutes is that you don't feel that familiar sensation of heating up (like with a down comforter, etc). You just feel like "you-temperature". It's kind of strange at first since you're so accustomed to having that sensory response to alert you "OK, I'll be warm enough tonight". BUT, despite the lack of that feeling, you never get cold. It's really pretty amazing! We both feel like we're sleeping better under this comforter than under our extremely expensive eiderdown comforters. I'm recommending this comforter and a mattress topper (which we also have for our preschooler) to our family and friends because the quality of sleep is that different. So why is wool "magic"? Besides its aforementioned ability to regulate body temperature, it also is self-cleaning. This was a hard concept for me to wrap my head around at first, but wool really is resistant to bacteria, dust mites, and smells. If wool gets smelly, you can hang it (in the sun helps speed the process) and the smell will disappear. If it gets wet, air dry it. If it meets the unfortunate fate if being near a bed wetter, hang it up and let it dry. The natural qualities of wool basically "eat" the urine (which is why it is so popular for covering cloth diapers). This is not a bedcover you need to worry about cleaning (especially since dust mites won't live in it) and you won't have the expense of dry cleaning it (like down). It also doesn't require the extremely harsh chemicals used to render wool "washable wool". Give wool a go, you won't regret it (especially at this price)!
I love this comforter and I love the company that makes it after I researched them. It is warm and cozy and feels spectacular. I grew up raising sheep and it just makes me feel good. I'm not sure about the all season part - I think I may have to get a summer weight version next spring as this one is quite toasty now.
This blanket has a great weight to it without being heavy. I feel so cozy underneath it, and it performs as advertised - when our house is chilly I am kept fully warm when underneath, but when the temp outside rises I don't get hot. I didn't think I could like a blanket this much but I love it!
