St. Dormeir: Wool Mattress Protectors
St. Dormeir washable wool mattress protectors are quilted in Spain with 100% Virgin New Zealand Wool, using a special unbleached, undyed 100% cotton terry cover. This cotton is quilted to the wool and extends down forming a stretchy skirt that fits snugly around the sides of the mattress, with an elastic band around the bottom edge for a good, secure fit. Available with 16" deep pockets (for mattresses up to 13" thick) or 24" deep pockets (for mattresses up to 21" thick). Weight is 250 g/m2.
Why St. Dormeir Wool? Wool absorbs perspiration much better than polyester and will keep your mattress wonderfully clean and fresh. Its breathability keeps you cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. Wool also lasts for years and is naturally flame retardant. A special European milling process makes this wool completely machine washable, unlike typical wool pads that need to be dry cleaned. St. Dormeir protectors have the same convenience of polyester filled mattress pads with all the wonderful characteristics of natural wool.
Customers who have bought the Tempurpedic mattresses or similar foam or latex mattresses & felt it slept too hot made this St. Dormeir wool mattress topper famous. Many discovered that it helps cool down their mattress without interfering with the feel.
Care instructions: Machine wash with warm water on the gentle cycle using a mild detergent. Do not use chlorine bleach. Wash these protectors by themselves and do not overload the washing machine. Tumble dry on low heat.
Please note these mattress protectors are water resistant not water proof. Small swatches are available upon request.
Superior quality mattress protector
Posted by Lynn on Sep 28th 2013
After purchasing our first memory foam mattress ever, I realized we also needed a new protector that was breathable yet water resistant. After much research, I found that the St. Dormeir seemed to be the gold standard in mattress protectors. It was the most recommended and received the highest reviews by far on all of the forums and blogs. The only thing that made me hesitate was the price tag. I went ahead and order one.....no regrets at all! The protector is very well made, right down to the evenly spaced stitching. The sides are generous but once you put it on the mattress, they stay in place with no bunching. I have an 11" mattress and it could easily handle a thicker one. The entire protector is incredibly soft. The top pad is nice and thick yet does not mask the feel of the memory foam in the least. My husband has always been a "hot" sleeper and he has noticed a huge difference since we started using the St. Dormeir. He no longer wakes up in the middle of the night, drenched with perspiration. Overall, this is a fantastic mattress protector and well worth the cost.
Very well made product, but thin

I was pleased to see the quality construction and materials used in this mattress pad. However, I was disappointed that the pad provides very little additional plushness to my mattress, which was one of the reasons I purchased it. I need to get something else to put under it now. I'm sort of amazed that some other reviewers felt it did provide comfy cushioning. I got a pad from a new batch; maybe they have significantly lowered the wool content? PS - I cannot seem to edit my review; "protects mattress" is not a con!
pricey, but worth it

The best mattress cover. Cool in summer

The best part, it is breathable and cool
Wool can be "cool"

When my husband suggested trying a wool mattress pad and I thought he was insane. I always thought wool was to keep you warm. It turns out that I love my wool mattress pad so much. This winter it kept us warm enough and it also seems to just wick away any perspiration associated with a pillow-top mattress. We have a California King mattress so bedding tends to be a little more pricier. I would strongly urge anyone to spend a little extra money and give it a try.
Great pad for Tempur cooling

I use the pad to help make a Tempur mattress cooler to sleep on and it does help! It is still way to new to really rate the durability but it is very comfortable!

A different mattress pad

Easy to put on and take off. Fits as it should and doesn't bunch up. With the sheet on top it is very comfortable to sleep on. It is cool on warm days and warm on cold days. A good alternative to polyester.
Great product and service!

My previous mattress pad from the foreign manufacturer of my expensive latex mattress cost the same almost 10 years ago and was just cotton. This time I did my homework and found all the high end product available. High end does not mean high cost if you consider how long you'll use the product and the comfort it delivers every night for that cost. The St. Dormier quality and comfort is immediately apparent. Good laundering instructions included will assure long life, and I received great service from Sandra Laughlin who kept me informed of my order.
THE BEST MATTRESS COVER!

I'm usually a budget shopper, but I did splurge a bit in buying this mattress cover, and I'm glad I did. It's well worth the price. My husband and I are sleeping more comfortably and the quality is supurb.
