Sleepeezee thinks local with wool deal

Sleepeezee has linked up with Romney Marsh Wools as its new supplier of locally sourced wool.

All Sleepeezee mattresses containing wool will now use Romney Marsh wool. Established in 2018, Romney Marsh Wools is owned and run by Kristina and Paul Boulden on their family farm on the Romney Marsh, Kent. 

‘For us, Sleepeezee was a perfect collaboration as it is a local business with traditional family values at its heart. We too share the belief in the welfare of the planet and our people, in sourcing materials from sustainable suppliers, and that no waste from our process goes to landfill. We strive for quality and great value in everything we do, and sustainability is at the forefront of both our businesses,’ says Kristina Boulden.

As a sixth-generation farm, the Bouldens have about 1,200 Romney ewes in their flock with 150 Merino ewes. Romney Marsh Wools’ products are made by the very best British makers, who are experts in their field. Aside from supporting local businesses like Sleepeezee, Romney Marsh Wools sells a range of homeware, clothing and toiletry products as well as selling raw wool, topped fleece and yarn in a range of colours.

The collaboration centred around sustainability and supporting local businesses. Recognised as a pedigree breed in England since 1896, Romney sheep provide wool that is natural, sustainable and a demi-lustre of excellent quality and staple. ‘We aim to sustainably source materials that align with our business values and customer’s needs, which is why investing in locally sourced wool from the Romney Marsh is so important,’ says Steve Warren, Sleepeezee md.

‘Our wool is locally sourced, produced and distributed which results in it having low embodied energy due to limited transport miles. We don’t use any synthetic dyes or damaging products on our wool and wherever possible, we re-use and recycle all our packaging and waste cardboard,’ says Kristina Boulden.
