This wool topper tutorial uses pictures as well as directions and dimensions to explain how to sew a wool topper for your bed. The steps is easy to follow, especially if you skip the optional zipper step. The PDF covers how to sew the fabric, how to layer the wool batts inside and where to place your tufts. The fabric may be hand sewn; a machine is not needed but does quicken the job.
The two-sided zipper option is included in the pattern so that when you reloft your wool in 8 years, instead of unstitching two seams, you merely unzip it and untuft it. Then you send your wool to a mill for rewashing and carding. When it comes time to reassemble, all you need to do is layer the wool inside, zip it shut and tuft again.
More wool batting than suggested amounts below may be purchased to fill your topper. However, beware that due to the loftiness of wool batting, too many layers of such wool may trench in your body positions, even with proper initial care as mentioned in the next paragraph. It is advised to not exceed more than one batt more than the amounts listed below.
Special care is required of wool toppers the first few months. Instructions are here and are also included in your pattern.
The tutorial will be available for download via a link in the receipt emailed to you or from your account if you create one during the checkout process as well as from the thank you page after you checkout. It is highly recommended that you print it in color, so you can see the details of the pictures.
