Why Dreamwool?


For over 40 years the Henderson family has been perfecting the design of premium handmade mattresses. From initial selection of the wool, through to the finishing details, we are constantly striving to produce the finest quality product.

It all started with a simple idea of trying to be more comfortable in bed. Edgar Henderson being an ex farmer with a bad back was waking up stiff and sore in the morning. Thinking back to his farming days he remembered the shearers working hard all day in their old black woollen singlets and how they would wear them in the cooler mornings or in the heat of the afternoon and remain comfortable. The old black woollen singlet was a natural insulator keeping them warm by trapping the air when they were cold and cooler when they were hot by absorbing the heat and perspiration. From this idea come the first Woollen Underquilt or Overlay, transforming overnight the comfort of innerspring mattress with a thick layer of 100% natural Wool. Straight away Edgar noticed his sleep improve, being more comfortable with the gentle warmth that the wool provided helped relieve his stiff back and soreness. This comfort has been enjoyed by many thousands of users since sleeping on a Dreamwool underquilt or mattress.  

Customers tell us our mattresses are the best. Perhaps that is because we use only the most natural materials ­ wool and latex. We don’t pad out our mattresses with synthetic foam to cut costs because we don’t believe in compromising or cutting corners. Perhaps that is why our company is still thriving in today’s competitive bedding industry. We are proud of our achievements which include prestigious industry awards.

Many new customers say they have been referred to us by family and friends who have themselves fallen in love with the Dreamwool sleep experience. As one customer said, “Sleeping on a Dreamwool mattress is an experience not to be missed. The only trouble is, after you have experienced Dreamwool, you can never really be comfortable sleeping on anything else again!"
