Water Resistant Natural Wool Crib Mattress Pad for Baby's Room

Water Resistant Natural Wool Crib Mattress Pad for Baby's Room


Our natural wool crib mattress pad is made from untreated, natural wool, certified by Oregon Tilth. The growers are restricted from using chemical pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, and hormones, and they adhere to sustainability and cruelty free standards.

This natural wool crib mattress pad is the perfect protection for your organic crib mattress. It is made with 23-28 micron fibers to create a thick pad that easily and naturally repels water. No treatments, no plasticizers. Made in USA.

Why use a natural moisture resistant crib pad?

Our natural wool Moisture resistant crib pads will protect your organic crib mattress from all liquids. While these pads are not completely waterproof, they do help to repel water naturally. To keep your little one from laying in a puddle, we recommend using our Absorbent Organic Cotton Pad on top of the moisture resistant pad. Why use natural? Most synthetic moisture resistant pads or waterproof pads contain harmful chemicals and fire retardants.
Can also be used as a baby changing pad.

What does micron size mean?

Micron is the diameter of the wool fiber. One micron is equal to one thousandth of a millimeter, or about 1/25,000th of an inch. The smaller the number, the finer the fibers, and thinner fibers tend to mean a finer and SOFTER fabric. To put it in perspective, human hairs are about 100 microns. The super soft merino wool sweaters are about 16 microns.

What does felting mean?

The wool fiber is subjected to heat and friction, causing the scales on the wool fibers to bloom and become entangled with one another. This produces a dense, non-raveling material.

Are you allergic to wool?

According to large scale allergy studies conducted at the Mass General Hospital, about 6% of people that came in for allergy testing actually had a wool allergy…. A much smaller number than people expect! In general, people who think they are allergic to wool are not allergic at all! It's that the wool clothing they wear is very coarse and pricks people's skin, making them itch. Wool fibers are not that different from human hair, but they have a lot more scales. Like human hair, there is a lot of variety in the different types of sheep wool. It turns out that the breed and the climate a sheep is raised in affects the coarseness of their fibers (thicker fibers being common to sheep from cooler climates). This thickness is tested by measuring the micron of the wool. The higher the micron number, the itchier the wool. Micron counts in wool have a wide range, the very fine range being anywhere from 15-19 microns, that most people would agree is comfortable to wear against the skin.

How to Use:

Place this pad on the bare mattress and then place the absorbent cotton pad (recommended) on the mattress next. Finish by placing the fitted sheet over top of both pads and the mattress.
