The yarns of this wool produced from the Californian Vintage carding machines trap still air, giving it insulating characteristics to regulate your body temperature. It helps keep your body heat in when it’s cool outside and helps keep the heat out when the temperatures rise. With three firmness to choose from - soft, medium and firm, you pick the perfect pillow for you based on your sleep style - soft for stomach sleepers, medium for back sleepers, firm for side sleepers.
Our extra clean wool filled pillows with no harmful chemicals naturally repel dust mites, mold, mildew, and moisture. Wool is also inherently fire resistant, providing a safe sleep environment without the need for chemical fire retardant additives. Add to that wool's anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties and you have the ideal setting for comfortable, healthy rest.
None of our eco wool is ever carbonized or bleached, and sheep dipping is never practiced. We use a medium-fine wool blend, the best loft for bedding--soft, supple, and never itchy. The mill produces exceptionally clean wool, scouring it multiple times with hot water and a mild, biodegradable soap. The wool is carded multiple times, loosening and releasing any debris, dirt, or vegetable matter without stripping the fibers or completely removing the lanolin. Carding also shifts the wool fibers so they all run in the same direction. The end result is a beautifully smooth, natural wool batting with bounce and natural resilience.
Wool is a miracle fabric and has several sustainable attributes: it is rapidly renewable, biodegradable, and recyclable. Annual shearing benefits both the sheep as well as us humans. Shearing in the spring allows the sheep to begin growing their wool in time to have a full coat by winter. Spring shearing prepares the sheep to have at least 1 inch of wool on their coats in the summer. This eco wool company also practices cruelty free shearing and wool processing.
We use the finest organic cotton sateen fabric fort he cover. This sateen is naturally lustrous and soft. And it's all certified organic. No harmful chemicals are involved at any stage of the process – planting, growing, harvesting, and processing are all handled in accordance with GOTS organic protocols. Utilizing farming methods that encourage healthy ecosystems, including eliminating the toxic herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers common in conventional cotton farming, means a safer environment for farm workers, more productive and sustainable soil, reduced irrigation needs, and a healthier end product for you.
Wool has a mild natural scent which comes from lanolin, a natural oil that protects the sheep's wool and skin from the elements and the environment. Approximately 1% of the lanolin is intentionally left in the wool after the scouring and cleaning process. This ensures conditioning effects and increases the longevity and vitality of our wool. We find the majority of our customers either don't notice a scent or find the natural scent to be mild, pleasant, and benign. This scent should dissipate within a few days.
We highly recommend a zippered pillow cover for an extra dose of protection. Wool loves the sun as much as it loves fresh air. Setting your wool pillows out on a sunny day a few times a year is a great way to refresh and cleanse it naturally. Sunning for a few hours, flipping to get all sides, will naturally deodorize, bleach, disinfect, and revitalize your bedding. If allergies are an issue, you can place your bedding near a sunny window indoors and get all the same benefits of sunning it outside without the concern of bringing outdoor allergens in. For stains, we recommend spot cleaning your wool pillows with a solution of 3 parts water to one part vinegar. Let it dry in sunlight and repeat until the stain fades and odors dissipate. You can also substitute vinegar with a mild laundry detergent. For surface stains, hydrogen peroxide works well for blood, whereas rubbing alcohol can help to remove oils from cosmetics.
