Performance you can count on in any weather
- Just like wind chill changes an individual’s perception of temperature, so does humidity. Wool will perform in the variety of harsh outdoor conditions where adventure happens.
- Wool will help you FEEL warmer, not merely survive. Wool will also perform in damp and humid conditions such as dew, fog, and frost unlike any other bag. A bit of rain on the bag? No worries. This bag will keep you warm even when up to 40% wet and will slowly dry out from your body heat alone.
- Wool is m a g i c !
Wool excels in keeping moisture away from your body. It can hold up to 40% of its weight in water and still keep you warm. It has been used for centuries to keep our ancestors warm and comfy and there is still nothing that can compare. With the Lucky Sheep™ wool sleeping bag you can sleep through a heavy dew or fog and wake up feeling warm and dry.
Synthetic fabrics compromise sleep by trapping moisture released by the body (insensible perspiration), blocking the skins ability to breath and creating a moist, clammy, uncomfortable sleep. Wool allows the natural release of moisture which in turn regulates body temperature, lowers heart rate and blood pressure, and lets you go into deep delta sleep so you wake up refreshed.
We believe sleeping outdoors should be as comfortable or even more so than your own bed. The Lucky Sheep™ sleeping bag’s unique quilt design allows you to adjust your position inside the bag easily. The fetal curl is the most temp. conserving position. You can also adjust the level of ventilation by opening the bag completely flat for extremes in weather as you are enjoying your adventures.

The name “Eco Wool” is the signiture product of Wollgatherers Carding Millfor the batting that goes in the Lucky Sheep™ sleeping bags.
Eco Wool batting is made from a blend of wool from different sheep breeds selected by Woolgatherer Carding Mill. Each woolgrower must enssure that fleeces come from healthy sheep raised on sustainably managed lands. We pay collaborating woolgrowers a premium for the best fleeces from their flocks. Fleeces are then cleaned and carded on a full wool card line, which produces the finest known woolen batting available.
PROPER GRAZING METHODS: Adequate field rotation to decrease soil erosion and to reduce the risk of sheep acquiring internal parasites.
PREDATOR FRIENDLY: Growers are encouraged to use trained sheep guardian dogs (not trapping or shooting) and the inclusion of other larger animals, such as llamas, to guard the flock.
HEALTHY VETERINARY PRACTICES: Only certain kinds of medications and supplements can be used to treat the sheep. Alternative caring methods are preferred to keep sheep healthy with fewer chemicals.
CHEMICAL CONTROL: Eco Wool opposes the use of herbicides and pesticides on fields that the sheep will be grazing in. We are able to determine if growers use these chemicals in our routine wool chemical testing.
SPECIFICATIONS FOR BREED, COLOR, STRENGTH AND MICRON-WIDTH: The Woolgatherer Carding Mill blend uses wool from six to eight different breeds, depending on availability. Eco Wool does not allow black wool and very little canary yellow wool in the ECO WOOL blend.
SKIRTING: Skirting is the process of removing less-desirable wool from the belly and back end of the sheep. This wool is separated on a skirting table and sold to other clients. In addition samples of wool are sent to two separate laboratories for chemical testing. A sample of the raw wool is sent to the University of Utah, and a sample of the batting is sent to Oeko-Tech Laboratory in Germany. The University of Mass-Lowell performed tests comparing Eco Wool batting to a competitorÕs for strength, resilience, flammability, and endurance. Their tests demonstrated that a mattress made with ECO WOOL batting would last twice as long as the competitor’s before flattening on top.
This is you HEART on SYNTHETIC fabric
Lucky Sheep natural fiber sleeping bag
Introducing the world’s first wool sleeping bag that has all the advantages of wool and yet is light enough for the trail.
The Lucky Sheep™ sleeping bag is unlike anything from the past. It is light, fluffy, retains it’s loft, and is so soft you would think it is silk.
Why wool instead of down or synthetic fill?
Sleeping bag opens completely via the zipper at the footbox. This allows for use indoors on a bed as well as allows use on warmer nights.
Wool has an amazing ability to breath, wicking the moisture (insensible perspiration) away from the body. Wool also has a superb ability to keep you warm even when moist or wet, which is what makes this a choice option for outdoor use.
Wool is Eco Friendly and Non Toxic. This Greenpeace study shows the health and environmental effects of the chemicals used in standard outdoor gear.
But the main advantage to wool is that is provides a delicious sleep unparalleled to any other material.

Wool sleeping bag inside the backpack. Fits neatly inside the pad which is placed in the pack first.
Down sleeping bags are lighter. That’s great for hiking but what about SLEEPING?
Down doesn’t come close to wool in performance.
Down doesn’t work when damp or wet.
But the main thing is down is coated with toxic chemicals which hamper sleep quality, comfort and health. It is also surrounded by synthetic fabric.
Are you out there to enjoy the sunshine, birds, and to savor every breath of fresh air and that amazing feeling of having the best sleep in your life?.
Close the bag completely and wrap flaps tightly under you as if you are a burrito on cold nights. Loosen the bag if needed by merely shifting your body and letting up on the flaps.
Open completely on warmer nights when you need more ventilation. Stick an arm or leg out to adjust body temperature when needed. Also can be used on a bed this way.
