St Dormeir


St Dormeir’s wool mattress protectors are natural, breathable, and insulating. A mattress should be kept fresh and new with a removable, washable mattress protector. A good mattress will last 10 to 20 years, so you should choose a protector wisely. This machine washable wool mattress protector will not only protect your mattress more effectively than any polyester, but will also actually improve the quality of your sleep as it is breathable and will keep you cool and dry.

The Zurguard® Down Purifying System is your assurance of the highest standards of freshness, purity and cleanliness for the goose down used in duvets, pillows and feather mattress tops. It is guaranteed to be Hypoallergenic for five years and exceeds all government standards for purity and cleanliness. The down is sanitized, eliminating bacteria for enduring cleanliness. A special ozone treatment is used as the final refinement of the cleaning process, to ensure a lifetime of freshness.

The Zurguard® Down Purifying System eliminates odors and treats down in a more careful and gentle manner than traditional cleaning and sanitizing methods. The down fibers are not damaged and never get over-dried or brittle. This ensures that the natural resiliency is maintained and that the down will not go flat.
