The remote Shetland Islands, found off the northeast coast of Scotland, are home to some of the hardiest sheep in Britain. Nature has developed this fleece over centuries to become uniquely soft, springy and resilient, making this harsh and beautiful landscape the home of the world’s best wool for upholstery.
VI-Spring is the only bed maker to use real Shetland wool in its mattresses and divans, with more than one quarter of the annual Shetland Islands’ wool clip destined for a VI-Spring bed.
Real Shetland wool is a rare, premium material, produced to exacting standards by seven hundred crofters on the remote Shetland Islands in Scotland. The sheep were introduced to the islands by the Vikings over one thousand years ago, and have been reared by successive generations of crofters even since. They are an essential part of the islands' ecology, helping to sustain the natural habitat for native wildlife and birds.
VI-Spring's exquisite all-wool Shetland Collection comprises the Vispring Shetland bed and mattress only, the Vispring Shetland Superb bed and mattress only, and the Vispring Bedstead Shetland Mattress from Vispring's Bedstead Mattress Collection. The all-wool collection now also features the brand new bed to the VI-Spring collection - The VI-Spring Devonshire bed, which is also available as a mattress only.
Hygienic and hypoallergenic
Each fleece helps to ventilate the mattress naturally. Real Shetland wool can absorb up to 30 per cent of its weight in moisture, without feeling damp. It is 10 times more absorbent than synthetic mattress materials.
