About the Canelana Wool Bed with Raised Edges
Canelana offers a few different beds for different scenarios. The “Wool Bed with Raised Edges” is meant to be an indoor bed, providing comfort with its raised edges.
The bed has a machine washable cover, which is easy to remove with the zipper running along the entire edge of the side of the bed.
The bed is padded and has a “pillow” for the thicker edge. The padding of the center is thick enough to provide comfort for the joints, but it is not an overly soft, memory foam-type bed.
Canelana Wool Bed with Raised Edges Review
This bed is surprisingly lightweight compared to the memory foam beds we have tested lately, which makes carrying or storing it very easy.
Many think that dogs enjoy as much padding as possible, but Mia often prefers to sleep on a firmer bed for some reason. The thinner mattress can also be more comfortable for dogs with joint pain who are not comfortable stepping on a too soft, unstable surface anymore.
The sides have more padding, while the center foam in our bed is around 2 cm (0.8 inches) thick.
Mia appreciates that this bed has edges and sleeps with her head resting on the sides almost every time. These side pillows are soft, so if you want to fit the bed in a crate or into a small corner, they can be easily squished in.
A significant advantage of wool is that it is far less likely to be static than other materials. The air is dry in our apartment over the winter, and many times I saw and heard Mia sparking when walking off the other beds that made her uncomfortable. This was never a problem with this bed! As a result, there is also less hair getting stuck to the material than with other beds.
Many think that wool is a sensitive material and is hard to keep clean, but it is actually odor-resistant, and most of the dirt is easy to shake off from the surface. My only concern is that this bed doesn’t have a waterproof liner covering the mattress. Wool itself is pretty resistant against mold and dries quickly, but I’m not sure the same is true for the inner foam if it would get wet unnoticed.
Thoughts on Wool
As we tested Canelana’s wool products, we also took the time to research the benefits and concerns associated with using wool in clothing. Wool is a renewable and biodegradable material, making it a great option for reducing waste from synthetic materials in the fashion industry.
When purchasing wool products, it is important to consider how the wool is sourced and the treatment of the animals. Canelana produces all of its products in Poland, sourcing wool from various countries, including Germany, Poland, Estonia, New Zealand, and South America. These countries adhere to the EU’s strict regulations on all aspects of production, including animal welfare.
It’s worth noting that mulesing, a controversial practice in which skin is removed from a sheep’s hindquarters to prevent flystrike, is only prevalent in Australia, and Canelana does not source wool from such a place.
While we acknowledge that the reality of animal farms may not align with the idealized image of happy sheep, using synthetic materials and contributing to microplastic pollution is not an optimal solution either. Ultimately, making ethical and environmentally responsible purchasing decisions requires taking all aspects of a product into account.
We aim to provide you with all the relevant information on Canelana’s products so that you can make an informed decision based on the facts at hand.
Here is some additional information about the dyeing process from Canelana’s supplier:
“We buy wool after washing or sweating, which we further wash and dye in the process. The company that performs these services has certificates and also uses appropriate agents and dyes that are friendly to the environment and to humans because of the direct contact of woolen products with human skin, but also in contact with animals. Production takes place at two carding departments where the woolen tape is prepared and knitting where the material is produced. These processes are mechanical, and no chemicals are used. Only the stabilization process in the final stage requires gluing the fabric “stiffening” with textile glue. The dyeing process is absolutely non-toxic, and the dyes used by the service provider do not contain harmful substances.”
This bed is well-made, packable, and provides excellent comfort to the dogs. The unique wool outer layer makes it more or less anti-static, breathable, and odor-resistant, which are all great features for a bed!
If your dog needs more joint support while sleeping or needs a waterproof layer, this bed is probably not the ideal choice for you, but we highly recommend everyone else to look into this bed!
Where to buy
You can buy all their products on their website. The bed comes in five sizes and two colors (black and grey).
Mia’s bed is the 80/100 size, which is a very comfortable fit for her.
