Falling in love with my new alpaca wool comforter
Is it possible to actually love a comforter? I’m not sure whether I’ve taken a particular liking to our new alpaca wool comforter from Crescent Moon because I adore those little alpaca animals, or the alpaca wool fiber actually does help me sleep better. Probably both. My night sweats have subsided and I’m sleeping through the night with only a few exceptions, night after night. A real blessing since once I wake up in the middle of the night, it takes hours for me to get back to sleep.
This new alpaca comforter is on the thin side, yet it keeps my body at just the right temperature whether the air conditioning is on, or the window is open. And, this is summer. It’s about half the fluffiness of our Natura wool comforter, which we also love but have decided will become our winter comforter.
I’m experiencing first hand the benefits of wool in regulating body temperature. It prevents overheating so you toss and turn less and stay in deep REM sleep longer. M-m-m-m, deliciously cozy sleep, I might add.
If you’re thinking about buying a wool comforter, give alpaca a try. You may never have to count sheep to get back to sleep again. Sorry, couldn’t resist.
