Obasan's Organic Sleep System

pic_revelstoke2.jpgObasan takes the notion of "organic" to heart with its designer beds or "sleep systems". They make beds using various combinations of organic cotton, wool and natural latex. The wool comes from the island of Texel in the Netherlands, where it shorn from a small flock of organically raised sheep. From the sound of it, the sheep lead lives of comfort that makes me almost jealous. They are carefully bred and live a stress-free life. pic_facts_wool.jpgDuring the summer months, the animals graze on land that has never been used for agriculture, guaranteeing that it is free from contaminants. In winter, a well-ventilated, climate-controlled barn with clean floors is stocked daily with fresh bedding and a non-rationed organic food supply. The animals are also checked daily for continued health. :: Obasan
