Woolly Boo organic nap mat review

Woolly Boo nap mats are made from 100% organic cotton and wool fibers.  They are not a low end nap mat, and here we give a more detailed review than our sales page can accommodate to tell you why.

 

The basic details
• Brown and green options
• 100% organic cotton exterior fabric
• 100% organic wool pillow, blanket and pad inserts
• About 1 inch thick
• The nap mat measures 20" wide x 46" long
• The blanket measures 35" x 35"
• All three inserts are removable and washable

 

Scientific studies have shown that people sleep longer with wool bedding, but for kids suffering from allergies or asthma, wool has the additional benefit of not holding moisture.  Dust mites don't like low moisture environments so that is another source of allergy and irritation gone.     The benefits of wool bedding can't be replicated with any other natural fiber.

 

The nap mat
The nap mats are made from very attractive plaid designs and chocolate brown and sage green colors.  The blanket is thick and has weight that generally helps children feel comfortable.

The nap mat pad is removable The nap mat pad is removable

The bottom of the nap mat is normally closed off with Velcro.  Pull it apart and the main nap mat pad (which runs from the bottom to the pillow) will slide out.

 

The main nap mat pad is made of organic wool with an unbleached organic cotton liner.

 

The blanket liner is removable The blanket liner is removable

The bottom of the plaid blanket is secured with Velcro just like the main compartment, and it covers an inner wool insert.  The wool insert is also jacketed by unbleached organic cotton fabric.

 

At 35 inches, the blanket is the widest of all our nap mats and is a nice feature.

This liner give the blanket a nice weight.  Generally children sleep better with more blanket weight.

 

With all the inserts removed (along with the carry wrapper) and placed on top of the nap mat, you can see the inner construction and thicknesses.

 

All of the parts are machine wash and dry, but we do ask that the washer be set to the gentle cycle, and the drier be set to low heat.

 

With the all-organic wool and cotton construction and removable liners, you can see why this nap mat justifies the price.  Even if your child does not have allergies or asthma sensitivities, the non-toxic construction and benefits of wool bedding might make this a good choice for your child.  And if your child is sensitive, the price of this nap mat is very small compared to medication or visits to the ER.

Eventually it is time to take the nap mat two or from school.  The canvas wrapper closes on itself with Velcro, and then has a carry strap.

 

Wool is a dense material, so this nap mat has a nice solid feel and weights three pounds.

 

In terms of overall size, Woolly Boo nap mats are similar in size with a number of other popular brands - Mint, Stephen Joseph, Ozark Mountain Kids, and Wildkin.  At 46 inches long, this nap mat will last most kids till ages 4-5.

 

We carry many nap mats by a large number of manufacturers!
