Australian Merino wool has long been heralded as a natural, hypoallergenic, breathable and biodegradable fibre, synonymous with high and slow fashion. But as entrepreneur Indi McCullough points out this luxurious fibre had not been considered for interiors, particularly bedlinen, in the same way.
Coupled with the research that proves we fall asleep faster and enjoy a better quality sleep surrounded by wool, Indi set out to take what was perceived as a “scratchy and uncontemporary” fibre to create innovative new fabrics. Cue Shleep: the first premium, fine Australian Merino wool bed linen made from ShleepHalo™, founded on the principle that a great night’s sleep can change your life.
In this interview, we speak with Indi about the beginnings of Shleep and her exclusive fabrics, the surprising benefits of sleeping on wool and why – contrary to popular belief – it’s optimal in the summer months.
