Lorraine Lea’s tips on how to Layer Your Bed:

1. Mattress Topper: Our range of Mattress Toppers will be sure to get you the perfect night's sleep throughout any season by adding additional support and comfort to your mattress.

What do NASA and our Thermal Balancing Topper have in common? The shared Outlast technology was first used to create textiles that protected astronauts from fluctuating temperatures. Those who get night sweats know all too well what it’s like to wake up in discomfort. That’s why we’ve made sure to include all the moisture management one can find in a bed topper.

2. Mattress Protector: Our Mattress Protectors offer a layer of cushioning on top of your topper and provide another barrier between you and the mattress, shielding your bed from general wear and tear and defence against dust-mites.

In our mattress protector collection, we have several excellent options. The Coral Fleece Mattress Protector is not only soft but treated with Bio Fresh, an antimicrobial finish. It also has a waterproof coating so you can expect adequate long-term protection. It’s available in every size, including the cot.

3. Underlay: Our range of Underlays are the ultimate secret to a healthy night’s sleep, by regulating your body temperature, allowing you to feel rested and ready for the day.

Naturally breathable and hypoallergenic, our Premium Reversible Wool Underlay offers the benefits of 100% Australian soft wool fleece in winter, and during summer, it can be reversed to the 100% cotton japara quilted side to keep you cool.

4. Quilt: A quilt provides warmth and comfort and all-around cosiness. Our range of Quilts will meet you body’s needs, such as warmth or weight.

When it comes to natural materials, nothing compares to wool. Our Wool Quilts are Australian-made from only the highest quality wool. You will receive all the natural insulation you need from our wool quilt, which will also help with temperature regulation while you sleep.


Next, add your choice of Pillow, Pillow Protector, Fitted Sheet, Flat Sheet, Quilt Cover, and accessories such as throws or cushions to complete your dream bed.
