Hand-crafted in our studio, these pillow inserts are made from 100% pure carded wool and 100% certified organic cotton covers.
The covers have a small zipper opening to allow for the fill to be removed when you want to wash the cover. This also allow you to re-fluff the wool once in a while if necessary.
Please allow 2-4 weeks production time.
Wool is often called the miracle fibre – a wonderful insulator, excellent at moisture control, naturally flame resistant, highly resilient. For thousands of years man has had a beneficial relationship with this unique fibre, but only in more recent times has science discovered why wool is such a miracle fibre and why it is the perfect choice for bedding products. The secret is in each wool fibre.
The core of each wool fibre is very absorbent – up to 30% of its weight in moisture. By comparison cotton absorbs 8% and most synthetics as low as 2% – in fact wool is the most hydrophilic (able to absorb moisture) of all natural fibres.
Natural Flame Resistance
Wool is made of keratin (an animal protein found in hair and nails ) and this, combined with the moisture content the wool has absorbed, requires a higher temperature to ignite than other natural and manmade fibres.
Naturally Non Allergenic
Dust mites – a leading cause of allergies – prefer a damp, not dry location, and the scales which cover each wool fibre help further create an inhospitable environment.
