Design Principles of the Wool Bed

We at Shepherd’s Dream have arrived at seven foundational principles over the past 22 years of prototyping ideal natural fiber bed systems. These principles are the foundation for creating the Shepherd’s Dream Wool Bed.

  • PRINCIPLE #1 – Maximum airflow throughout all components of the bed!
  • PRINCIPLE #2 – The use of pure wool, unmixed with other fibers within and encasing the primary mattress – wool has proven to be the most appropriate natural fiber for the sleeping environment.
  • PRINCIPLE #3 – utilizing the concept of a ‘layered bed’.
  • PRINCIPLE #4 – appropriately easy care
  • PRINCIPLE #5 – ecologically sound
  • PRINCIPLE #6 – product longevity
  • PRINCIPLE #7 – comfortable and nontoxic
