I am deciding between two wool toppers where the price is similar ($50 apart), but there are significant differences between the two. I thought I'd ask folks how their wool toppers held up. I am most interested in durability, though obviously comfort factors in too. It's just not worth spending bucks on it if it's going to be unusable or not useful in 2-3 years. They are all twins.
Topper #1: 42sq"/yd, 6lbs. Sewn, wool is carded. The cheaper of the two.
Topper #2: 9lbs, tufted. Wool probably not carded, but have a call out on that. $50 more than Topper 1. Obviously the cushiest, but I am concerned about physically being able to shake it out and transport it.
Topper #3 (sold by the store who sells #1), $50 cheaper than #1, pre-compressed wool. Wins on durability, maintenance and mobility. However, it's only 26sq"/yd and just doesn't cushion as much as I'm looking for.
According to the store that sells #1, being sewn and having carded wool increases durability by preventing bunching and shifting. I haven't found evidence to backup or disprove that claim.
Folks who own a topper, how physical is it to fluff your topper and how often do you do it? Have you had a problem with shifting and bunching? How long before it happened and do you know how your topper was constructed by chance?
Thanks in advance!
