Every synthetic mattress is required by law to contain fire retardant chemicals. Even a cotton futon. One solution to distance yourself from those chemicals is to use a mattress topper.
It has been shown that your heart rate is lowered when you sleep on a natural surface, resulting in a deeper sleep.
Toppers are great for not only creating a natural sleeping surface, but for softening a bed.
Holy Lamb Organics recommends their hand made wool-filled toppers because wool is the most breathable material for your body. Choose from Premium Eco-Wool™ sourced from their sustainable wool program using west coast U.S.A. wool or organic wool. Finally it is finished off with an organic cotton fabric encasement. Now that is quality! Handmade in the USA & tufted with love, Holy Lamb Organics make 2 thicknesses:
The Deep Sleep Topper:
The perfect choice for adding a little more softness to your mattress, but not the full loft of The Ultimate Wool Topper.
The Ultimate Topper:
This best seller is for sleepers who like a deep plush pillow top. The Ultimate has 50% more wool than the regular Deep Sleep. Hop into the nest.
Crib Size: approximately 1" thick and is recommended for infants over 3 months of age.
To soften up a very hard bed Holy Lamb Organics also offers natural Dunlop latex toppers.
Please know, for quilted toppers there may be a slight nesting effect, but it does not change the amount of comfort it provides.
Not sure? Contact us to order a sample. This will help you decide which wool topper thickness is right for you as well as get a feel for the materials before purchasing.
Toppers are packaged in plastic recycled from Holy Lamb Organics' wool batting. All other products fall under their Plastic Free Packaging Policy. Holy Lamb Organics believes that reusing this plastic one more time for our larger products will not only help protect them during shipping but puts to good use the plastic from our manufacturing giving it one more life. We encourage you to recycle this plastic bag.

What else we love about Holy Lamb Organics:
Their handmade signature products of organic cotton Sateen and Premium Eco-Wool™ are developed and manufactured in a small town near Olympia, WA.

Nothing gets thrown away because as they (and we) see it, there is no “away”.
