Biopod Wolle Almhütte
Sleeping bags are now compulsory in the huts. The Biopod Wolle Almhütte is the optimal sleeping bag for the hut.
It is light, small to pack and has an excellent sleeping climate thanks to its AlmWolle by lavalan® filling. AlmWolle by lavalan® has many advantages. It acts like a natural air conditioner, is antibacterial and insensitive to moisture. The Biopod Wolle Almhütte can be opened completely and used as a blanket. The headboard is opened at the back, where a pillow can be inserted hygienically. Practical gimmick: there is an earplug pocket on the inside.
The Biopod Wolle Almhütte can also be pimped with the Grüezi bag Schlafsackwarmer for cooler tours. This makes the sleeping bag versatile.
How AlmWolle by lavalan® works
Our body requires a lot of energy to regulate its temperature. Sheep’s wool offsets the climate and therefore partly takes care of temperature regulation. The remaining energy can be used to help the body recover.
The processed Almwolle by lavalan® used in Biopod sleeping bags acts as a natural air conditioning system: the body is constantly emitting moisture. However, when it gets too humid in the sleeping bag, the body gets very cold and it is no longer possible to sleep well. Wool absorbs the moisture and releases it outwards. It does so in small amounts to prevent evaporative cooling. This regulates the temperature in the sleeping bag, retaining heat or cooling, to create comfortable conditions for a restful sleep. Wool also provides warmth in damp conditions.
Grüezi bag uses wool from sheep in the Alps as the filling for its product line, Biopod.
Durable, natural, bio-degradable and renewable: Sheep’s wool, in this case special AlmWolle by lavalan®, can be shorn annually.
