Breathable Wool Pillows
Important points to consider when you buy a new pillow:
While there are many points to consider when buying a new pillow, we think there are three questions you should ask yourself before making a decision:
- Is it comfortable?
- Will it last a long-time?
- Is it ethical and eco-friendly?
As shown above, our pillow can be opened and closed at any time and is filled with tiny woolen balls. This allows you to add or remove the desired amount of wool from the pillow, so that you can adjust it and find the thickness which is just right for you.
We use the same high-quality Swisswool filling in our pillows as we do in our duvets and baby sleeping bags, so they’re also breathable and hypoallergenic. This means that your pillow won’t make your head hot at night and you won’t have to worry about dust mites.
All our products are built to last. We use high-quality Swisswool and only the finest FairTrade cotton to ensure that our products aren’t just comfortable, but also durable.
Ethical and eco-friendly
Our Swisswool is sourced from sheep raised in the Swiss Alps. Our sheep graze happily in one of the most beautiful places in the world, which they also help to maintain, as their grazing helps to prevent erosion! In addition, properly-managed grazing helps reduce levels of carbon dioxide and may help reduce the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
Why is a pillow with wool a healthy pillow?
A pillow with Swisswool filling is healthy because it is hypoallergenic and hasn’t been treated with a host of chemicals.
Hypoallergenic pillows are important because they present an unattractive habitat for dust mites, which are the most common cause of household dust allergies. In addition, they are believed to be a cause of childhood asthma.
Dust mites need a wet and hot environment to live in, which wool doesn’t provide them. This is because wool is breathable and disperses moisture throughout its connecting fibres, so the heat and sweat from your head don’t stay in the pillow. In fact, a study from the University of Leeds in the UK showed that wool “allowed 67 per cent more moisture to escape over an eight-hour period than a feather/down wadding, and 43 per cent more than polyester.”
