FAQ swisswool inside logoWhat is Swisswool made of?

Swisswool is made from 88% virgin wool from Swiss sheep. The other 12% is corn fibres. They are used to strengthen the wool and make it easily washable.

What is the difference between Swisswool and a polyester filing?

Swisswool breathes and wicks moisture away. This helps your baby to regulate their body temperature and is important for comfortable sleep. A breathable baby sleeping bag allows air and moisture to pass straight through it, qualities that help keep your baby's body at the right temperature so he doesn't wake up at night. The result is better, deeper and more relaxed sleep, thanks to Zizzz.

Polyester is a plastic fibre made from oil, and doesn’t have the same capacity to absorb moisture. When moisture stays close to the body it result in a clammy feeling. Research has shown the superior qualities of wool as a bedding material.
