Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are Wooltara products suitable for people with allergies?
A.  Wool, unlike feathers, is naturally non-allergenic. Our products are treated with Ultra-Fresh, a highly effective agent that fights off bacteria, mould and mildew which not only provides lasting freshness but is effective control against dust mites - great news for allergy and asthma suffers. 

Q. What is Ultra-Fresh and how does it work?
A.  Ultra-Fresh is an intensive anti-microbial and anti-bacterial treatment of the raw fibres that provides lasting resistance to the growth of mould, mildew and fungi. Many household allergies are caused by the common dust mite which breeds readily in untreated materials. Dust mites feed exclusively on discarded human skin cells, which need to be decomposing for the mites to consume them. Deterring the growth of mould and mildew prevents dust mites from being able to survive, breed and colonise your bedding.

Q. How do I care for my Wooltara product?
A.  Always read and follow the product care label for care instructions. Before using your Wooltara product, we recommend removing the packaging and airing it for a couple of hours on a warm, breezy day. It is not necessary to wash your Wooltara product before use.
We recommend using quality bed linen with all Wooltara quilts, underblankets, pillows and mattress toppers. Electric blankets can be safely used underneath your underblanket/mattress topper.
