Natural Wool Pillows-Organic Cotton Cover
These Organic Cotton Cover Natural Wool pillows are made of 100% organic cotton twill cover fabric. The cotton in this fabric is organically grown and milled in the USA, without dyes or chemicals used in the milling process resulting in a natural cotton color.
Why wool? Wool breathes and absorbs moisture from the air, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer and the humidity level low in your pillow which keeps out dust mites. Dust mites seek warm and moist environments, not found in wool. Wool’s microscopic bristles resist germs and bacteria making it a natural anti-microbial and anti-bacterial fiber. Wool fiber is naturally fire resistant, ensuring a safe sleeping environment without the use of fire retardant chemicals.
It matters how the wool is processed. The wool is cleaned without the use of harsh chemicals. It is scoured using only Biosoft Soap – a biodegradable soap – and hot water. We do our best to get as much plant material out of the wool as possible, but because we don’t use harsh chemicals to break up the plant fiber, you may find small pieces of it in the wool.
Compression: Fluffing your pillow daily is recommended as wool batting does compress with use and will reduce by about 1/3. This is why these pillows are filled with additional wool.
Easy care: These pillows contain a zipper closure to easily remove the wool and wash the cover. The pillow cover is machine washable in lukewarm water. For best results, air or machine dry on low heat. While washing the outer cover, lay the wool in the sun for a few minutes. The sun will evaporate moisture, naturally cleaning the wool. Never put the wool batting in the washing machine or it will felt!
