Q:Hello - I want this pad for my night sweats, but my husband does not. If I got the twin size to put on my side of our cal king bed, would it stay in place? The elastic would hook over the corners on only one side. Thank you!Asked on 10/14/2017 by Jo from San Diego, CA
A:Hi Jo. The Imperial Wool Mattress Pad. That sounds good in theory but we could not guarantee that it would stay in place with nothing holding it down on the one side. With the fitted sheet and you laying on it, it may stay put for a while. It is up to you if you would like to try it. Thank you for your inquiry.
Q:Since the backing on this pad is poly, does this cause more heat retention (as compared to the all-cotton backing on the Ultra Fleece wool pad)?Asked on 10/13/2017 by Lucy from North Carolina
A:Hi Lucy- The cotton backing is going to be more breathable than a poly backing. This could cause more heat retention. Both item will wick moisture away from your body on hot nights while acting as a natural insulator on cold nights. Thank you.
Q:Is this product used under or over the bottom fitted bed sheet?Asked on 9/27/2017 by Charlie from Grainfield Kansas
Q:1) Are there any chemicals/sprays that the manufacturers use on this product? I am concerned about inhaling chemicals. Please let me know. 2) Is this product GOTS-certified? 3) Is this product organic?Asked on 9/26/2017 by steph from NY NY
Q:Best low-tech, low-chemical way to wash, please.Asked on 9/25/2017 by BeeBop from Hudson River Valley
Q:Trying to decide between the two wool mattress pads.
Need more of a cooling effect and wondering if the thickness and/or
cotton backing makes a difference.
Also, do you make them anymore with the full skirt around like a fitted sheet?
Thanks.Asked on 9/20/2017 by Janet from Fort Lauderdale
A:Hello Janet - I don't think that either the backing or the thickness would have any effect on the cooling properties of the wool mattress pads. Either one will give you the temperature regulation for which they are known. A thicker pad would add a little more cushion and comfort. Another difference to consider is that the Imperial Wool Pad is washable and the Ultra Fleece is dry clean only. We currently do not offer any wool mattress pads with the fitted sheet design. Thank you for your inquiry.

Q:I have dust mite and seasonal allergies as well as asthma. As per instructions from ,my allergist, I use a zippered dust mite protector on our bed and wash all bedding (including mattress pad) once a week in hot water. How often can the Imperial Wool Mattress Pad be washed and at what temperature? I don't know much about the properties of wool, so I could use some advice as to whether this would be a good product for me. Thank you.Asked on 7/11/2017 by Terri from Farnham, VA
A:Hello Terri - Since wool is naturally dust mite resistant, the Imperial Wool Pad should be a good choice for you. An added layer of protection would be our allergy/dust mite covers, MB19 or MB22, along with the wool. You may want to see if your allergist thinks it necessary to wash wool in hot water. In general, we recommend that the mattress pad be covered to keep it cleaner so it would not need frequent washing. The recommended washing instructions are for cold water on a delicate cycle with a mild wool detergent and no bleach. Drying instructions are for low heat. We do not have any information regarding what would result from weekly washing in hot water. Thank you for your interest.
