Best night's sleep ever! The perfect pillow is not an easy task to create. We have spent many years trying to find the solution that will suit everyone. All our pillows are completely natural filled - with the purest 100% Wool or Alpaca with high-quality cotton casings.
Wool pillows are fantastic for those with allergies especially people sensitive to mould, house dust and house dust mites. Asthma and allergy sufferers will awake after a better night's sleep with clear eyes and nose and head.
Compared to hollow fibre and other manmade fibres, feathers and down pillows the benefits of wool are now becoming much better known. However, for those who don't yet know, it has been scientifically proven (University of Sidney) that most people sleep longer and deeper with wool when compared to other fibres.
Our pillow manufacturer is the only manufacturer in the world that produces every part of its products 'in-house' in a vertically integrated process, from the yarn, weaving the fine cotton casing, processing the wool, and finishing the pillows. Consequently, we can ensure superior quality control, resulting in a top quality wool pillow that is produced sustainably, with the lowest carbon miles and meets stringent European environmental standards. The factory has also won textile environmental awards, year on year.
Our wonderful range of wool pillows has been produced to the very highest environmental standards. The wool in them and the cotton case that surrounds it have both been certified as completely free of any nasty chemicals to the stringent Oeko-Tex 100 Standard, which is more than can be said of most feather down or even organic pillows.
We also have a superb range of British Made, British Alpaca and British Wool pillows, that are already pre-filled with different weights. All of us here The Wool Company have tested each and every one of these pillows - and we all love them! But the debate that ensued about what makes the perfect pillow, showed us all that in fact we all demand such very different things from a pillow. Not one of all loved exactly the same pillow - but we all did fall in love with one of them! They are all made in England, by a small producer who could manufacture exactly to our requirements. The wool in the wool pillow is double scoured, so a minimal woolly smell (but still a little:) and is in very fine layers (like wadding) and so gives a huge amount of support. The wool pillows are very supportive, and we all agreed that the firm wool pillow was simply the most comfortable pillow for reading in bed! If you sleep on your side the low fill pillows (in alpaca and the wool) are superb. If you sleep on your back, the medium fill may be best of you, and for a 'softer' fill the alpaca are superb.
