A slice of luxury - with a small carbon foot print. Made from ORGANIC cotton covers, and felted waste WOOL (from sheep!) that would otherwise be discarded. These beds are suitable for cats and small to medium sized dogs.
The beds are handmade in Somerset and filled with seven layers of semi-felted 100% wool with no added chemicals or treatments. This makes them excellent for many dogs with skin allergies and old bones, needed a bit of extra padding and warmth. The covers are made from an organic cotton fabric made by a family in India, and are made in Somerset. They are made from fairtrade, organic fabrics, fastened with a zip on the long side for easy removal and are washable at 30 degrees.
Wool has many features:
It is an excellent insulator, keeping animals warm but not overheating
It is naturally hygroscopic - it absorbs and releases water very easily, allowing for dogs that tend to come in damp! And when damp - wool has the amazing ability to release heat - helping keep old joints comfortable
Looks great and feels soft, and is safe to handle
Supports UK farmers - Made in Somerset
100% bio-degradable, leaving no residue at all. At the end of your bed's life it can be put in the garden round your plants and trees to feed them - no indestructible polyester to take to the tip and fill land-fill sites!
Sustainable and low-carbon - sheep make it from grass
Nitrogen rich - feeds your plants as it breaks down
The wool stuffing is dry clean only to prevent further felting, but in most cases it will be fine if you just air it regularly. Comes in blue denim organic cotton. The covers are fully machine washable - but we recommend a low temperature wash to save energy. The wool insides should not be washed as this will encourage further felting. Simply turn and air regularly.
The wool is sourced from local farmers who would otherwise have to discard the coloured and lower grade wool as a waste product - working with them directly makes the most of this waste product

we have various animal beds littered around the floor in our house - but guess which one they all make a bee-line for - ignoring the sofa (which was their (illegal) free choice before), and the plastic bed, and the vet fleecing etc- they all queue for the Wool Pet bed. Percy the cat thinks it is his bed, and fends the dogs off, but in the odd moments when he is away from it the dogs compete for it - even our rugged working collie can be found curled up on it - but looking a trifle 'sheepish' I have to say! One thing we have noticed is that we never have any condensation on the floor under it, which we had with all the other dog beds, and it is pretty obvious what they all think of it. So much so that we have had to buy another so that there are fewer disputes:)
