All of our wool filled pillows are ideal for a healthy bedroom! Wool reduces common bedroom allergens because it is naturally mold and mildew resistant. Wool quickly absorbs and releases moisture and thus, does not allow the damp conditions that mold thrive on. Other natural fibers, such as down and cotton, do not readily release moisture. Wool is also naturally fire resistant which means that all of our bedding is able to pass flame tests without the use of any added chemicals.
Our Domestic Wooly Bolus is grown in the Pacific Northwest following our strict standards for humane treatment of the sheep. Wooly Bolus are specifically designed for making long lasting pillows and furniture. To make the cluster balls we reverse card the wool (run the mill backwards) to make small felted balls that are perfectly designed for the use of blowing machines. The advantage is if your pillow ever gets lumpy you can unzip it and re-fluff it.
To wash cotton cover: Remove the wool from cotton cover. Wash cover in cold water and dry on low to avoid shrinkage. While cover is washing, place the wool in a pillow case or on a sheet of fabric outside in direct sunlight. If this is not an option, simply air the wool out indoors inside a storage bin or basket.
To wash wool pillow: Fill a wash basin with cool water and a small amount of natural wool wash detergent (we like to use Eucalan). Gently massage the pillow in the water to fully saturate the wool fill. Once it has been fully saturated, empty out the water and rinse the pillow. Gently press as much water out of the pillow as possible. We do not recommend ringing the pillow as the agitation can make your wool clusters felt together. Once you have removed as much water as possible, dump the wool filling into a large storage bin. We recommend this method so that the pillow case can be washed and dried normally without obtaining water stains. At this point, you can also sort through the wool and break apart any larger clumps that may have formed during the washing process, then place your wool fill outside in direct sunlight or air out indoors in a warm location.
Once the wool is mostly dry, feel free to return it to your pillow cover and place in the dryer on air dry with dryer balls to complete the drying cycle. This helps to revitalize the wool, making a soft and fluffy wool pillow.
