New Zealand’s most luxurious sleep: Dreamwool Beds

With summer just around the corner, the thought of beautiful, long warm days is an exciting thought, but for many, it also comes with the prospect of hot sleepless nights.



The good news is you can now say goodbye to waking up all hours in a lather and positioning fans around your bedroom to keep you cool.

Local company Dreamwool Beds really has thought of everything. “It’s all about controlling the bed micro-climate and that starts with the mattress and then what goes on top of the bed. We can help you with both,” owner David Henderson says.

For more than 40 years, the Henderson family has been perfecting the design of premium handmade mattresses, creating a specialist product featuring a thick layer of 100 percent natural merino wool designed for climate control. “We offer New Zealand’s most luxurious sleep.”

When it comes to their much-loved mattress products, Dreamwool sleep systems use the advancements in technology and a combination of pure merino wool, natural latex and micro-coils for breathability.

This all helps provide comfortable support without pressure. The mattresses are anti-static, dust repellent, and the natural probiotic fabric treatment uses no harmful chemicals. “Our mattresses are natural and have no hot foams or synthetic fillings that would hold the heat,” David says. “And they’re on flexible slat beds, rather than box bases.”

To add to the luxurious sleeping experience, Dreamwool Beds also has bedding options available that can help even the hottest sleepers experience a more refreshing sleep.

This season they’ve introduced a range of German-engineered Tencel Mattress Protectors, made with cellulose natural fibre. The Tencel fibre absorbs moisture to store it at night and emit it into the environment during the day, therefore providing a comfortable, dry and healthy sleeping environment keeping dust mites, bacteria and odours out.

For a more low-tech but equally beneficial alternative, they offer organic cotton mattress protectors, which their customers love.

Another European product on offer is a range of summer blankets, designed for a refreshing sleep during hot summer nights as they’re cool to the skin.

Made from Tencel and cotton, they have lovely drape-ability, and are weighted so hot sleepers can still feel the comfort of being covered by a beautiful soft blanket, yet enjoy the benefits of the sophisticated climate control concept of Tencel that ensures pleasant temperatures and a dry sleeping environment. The summer blanket range comes in six colour options.

Also available are resort-quality organic cotton sheets, which come in white or silver and are especially good for deep mattresses.

Creating Brow Beauty: Angela Millar

Some are born with great eyebrows, some achieve great eyebrows and the rest of us have great eyebrows cosmetically tattooed upon us, preferably by Angela Millar, semi-permanent eyebrow and eyeliner specialist at KM Surgical.

Angela’s brow and eyeliner work is bespoke to your face and desired look. Digital technology, together with nano needling, enables adjustable speed and needle configuration. Clients can achieve feathered, powdered, ombre or a combination finish on their brows and, as with the eyeliner, the iron oxide-free pigments can be placed further into the skin for a stronger and longer lasting look, or with less depth for a softer look.

Brow micro-pigmentation takes between two and two and a half hours. The first hour is spent shaping the existing brow, mapping and drawing before the micro-pigmentation begins. Angela loves the fact that “perfect brows are with you throughout your day. You wake up with them, they go swimming with you or to the gym and out to dinner that night.”  Angela’s work is also popular with clients with alopecia or who are going into a course of chemotherapy.

Angela says clients are aged from 18 to 87 and choosing both subtle and bolder looks in brows and eyeliner. KM Surgical offers the fabulous advantage of also having laser and filler specialists on site. “We integrate to correct unsatisfactory work done elsewhere and to combine all the client’s facial treatments,” Angela says. Plus, reassuringly, dermatologists are on site if there are medical constraints or skin imperfections.
