I was a little hesitant to order this mattress pad, based on another review that stated there was a bad odor to the item when they received it. I'm glad that I went with my gut instinct and ordered it anyway. No, it didn't smell freshly laundered when I opened the package -- I thought it just smelled "new". I certainly wouldn't call it an "odor" and I didn't have to leave it outside for days before using it. I just sprayed it with some Febreze, let it dry, and it smelled just lovely. I bought this pad to replace the yucky plastic one they gave us when we purchased our new mattress, which has a memory foam topper on it. Love the mattress, but hated waking up HOT all the time. I sleep much better on this pad and it is definitely cooler than the plastic one. Our mattress is extra deep and this pad fits great on it. Completely satisfied and would recommend to anyone.
Another reviewer mentioned that this mattress pad came with an "off" oder. I opened the package, and could smell the oder. It's not a terrible smell, but I opened the mattress pad, and hung it on my clothes line, planning to put it on my bed when it was oder-free. I gave it a sniff every day, and as the days passed, the oder grew fainter. After 5 or 6 days, the oder was gone. I put the mattress pad on my bed, and am enjoying it. It is comfortable, and is well-made. I got it in the California King size, and it fits my K-Cal mattress perfectly. I recommend this product.
I searched several days for the perfect mattress pad and this is it. I have slept on this for over 1 year now and have waited to give a review in order to see how this pad does in the long run and it does live up to it's purpose and then some. I had purchased a very expensive memory foam mattress with cooling gel. I spent a little more and went for the cooling gel because one of the most frequent complaints i found when searching for a memory foam mattress was that they sleep 'hot' and the cooling gel received much better reviews in this area. So since I spent a small fortune on the mattress i didn't want to lose any of the memory foam benefits with the wrong type of mattress pad protective cover. This is perfect. It does not sleep hot and also allows the memory foam to do its job. I have also washed this in a regular washing machine and dried on low heat cycle and it came out just as it went in.
This is a well constructed, very soft and durable mattress pad. it has help up great in washing and I expect it to last a long time. Does exactly what Ii need it to do in protecting my mattress and I'm very pleased with this purchase. Great price too.
I still use this mattress pad and it works fine. I initially bought it, though, to try to make my Tempurpedic mattress less of the burning death (but oh, so comfy) and it hasn't worked as well as I would have liked. It did work some, and seems decent quality. Maybe I just bought it for the wrong purpose.
There is a strange chemical smell to this and very strong. I washed it and the smell got stronger tiggering my husbands asthma. While in the dryer the wool started coming out. I am not sure from where as there are no holes. It is going back.
Excellent fit, quallity construction, and very comfortable. So happy to find this product! Expensive, but worth every penny. Also, contrary to reports of a bad smell, we found no smell whatsoever. Prior to using this, I washed it in cold water, according to instructions. It washed well and even fluffed up a bit.
I have bought it for all members of my family, my mom, my several friends! Everyone is happy! This is a natural relief for back pain. People don't realize it sleeping on anything else but wool will add to your back pain. Get it and you will forget you have back problems! That is what I tell my friends and several of them have purchased it and are very grateful!
I have a hot Temperpedic mattress (Never buy this) that feels great but gets hot. While this pad works well against moisture, I still wake up 2 to 3 times a night with a "hot spot" and need to roll to a cooler spot. This won't do for the $ I spent. Will keep searching for a solution.
I was really looking forward to using this well-made mattress pad over my latex mattress. But this will obviously not happen. After airing the mattress pad out for several days, it still carried an awful odor. I have now washed it twice. The smell has not abated one bit. Furthermore, there is a bad residual smell in my washing machine. (No kidding.) I can't imagine other buyers thinking that the smell is tolerable, so I wonder what has changed since this mattress pad received such favorable reviews.. . . I hope that I can return it.
We got one of these when we originally bought a Royalpedic Cotton mattress many years ago but due to an illness the pad became stained and mildewy. Was thrilled when it appeared on Overstock. Does a good job of regulating body temps even in LA
i thought for that price it would of had a bit more fill power to make it fluffier,but the quality is excellent washable wool, allergy proof, and dust mites gone. what an item everybody should sleep on clouds of virgin wool now this is pash and plush
