Handcrafted

"Good Night" products are handmade, starting from sheep farming to the final product. Sheep shearing at the farm takes place over a few days and is an interesting sight. Also of interest is 'wool carding', a mechanical process that disentangles, cleans and intermixes fibers to produce a continuous web or sliver suitable for subsequent processing. Finally wool webs lies on a luxury cotton cloth, and professional seamstresses hands turns it to lovely bedding.

Eco-friendly natural materials

"Labos nakties" production is very close to Mother Nature. Not only the wool we use is natural itself but its processing is also. Commercially processed wool is washed using chemicals. We hand-wash wool using natural soap. The chosen method of processing is much heavier but it ensures high-quality and is environment friendly.

Wool features

Wool is naturally wavy, its threads are separate and insulated with air ensuring the fabric retains heat and that correct body temperatures can be maintained while sleeping. Wool retains its warmth, but does not overheat the body. Wool absorbs moisture but also allows it to evaporate. This is especially important during colder months since even the smallest amount of moisture cools the body. Synthetic fibres absorb an average 2% moisture, whilst wool fibre can absorb around 40% of its own weight in moisture without causing feelings of humidity. It is recommended to ventilate wool products in warm, dry environment or open air several times a year. 

Hypoallergenic

Although a lot of people are sensitive to wool, medical experts agree that real wool allergy is rare. People who think they're allergic to wool, in fact may react to products remaining after the "commercial" wool processing. For a long time the wool was not recommended for people with allergies, but now more and more state that naturally processed wool is hypoallergenic. Although wool allergies are rare, a lot of people shy away from wool because of allergies to dust mites. Dust mites multiply under certain conditions. They require moisture to survive, they cannot survive in extreme cold or heat. Meanwhile wool can absorb up to 40% of its weight in moisture and remains dry! It creates a dry microclimate and dust mites do not feed on wool. So natural, chemically intact wool is not suitable for dust mites to breed. Natural lanolin acts as a repellent for dust mites also.

No chemicals

"Labos Nakties" products use wool untreated by chemicals, thus retaining all its best features. It is thoroughly hand washed using just natural soap and water in order to preserve the lanolin, a fatty substance which helps to preserve its softness and waviness. Wool is not only the least vulnerable, but also is pleasant to cuddle up.
