Soft & Safe

Organic wool is a great choice when it comes to choosing a natural pillow.

Indeed, organic wool has no harsh chemicals added to it, is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-dustmite, naturally flame retardant and regulates body temperature.

What’s more, organic wool is the only material that both absorbs and releases moisture efficiently, thereby maintaining your body temperature stable.

Naturally Smart

Temperature regulating without the tech.

Organic wool creates a “microclimate”, which assists in regulating body temperatures and humidity, thus relieving the body of thermal stress, and promoting a deeper, more refreshing sleep.

Many people think they’re allergic to wool. However, what they count as an allergic reaction, is actually the unpleasing sensation of commercial, chemically treated wool, which has been processed so much, that the fibres of the wool have became damaged (thus creating a brittle sensation on the skin).

Healthy & Hygienic

Allergen-free, dustmite free, all year.

What’s more, they may actually be allergic to the chemicals which the commercial wool has been treated with.

Organic wool is completely chemical free and light years softer than commerical wool.

What’s more organic wool is naturally anti-bacterial. That means, if you’re someone who’s sentive to bacterias, or you want the cleanest bed and bedroom possible, organic wool pillows are an amazing choice.

HIGHLIGHT / DID YOU KNOW?

Natural Vs. Blended Vs. Synthetic Latex

There are many different kinds of latex pillows on the market. The different kinds of latex pillows are natural, blended and synthetic.

The most Natural Latex is 97% natural, and only has a very small percentage of chemicals which are needed to turn the rubber sap into the natural latex “foam” texture. A sample of our natural latex was lab tested, to analyse the percentage of natural rubber. That percentage came back to be 97%, the rest being sulfur (less than 1%) and other untracable elements.

Blended latex is a material that was made from maximum 50% natural rubber, and 50% other chemicals.

Synthetic latex has very small amounts of natural rubber, and is mostly made using chemicals because it helps companies cut down on costs.

Blended and Synthetic Pillows are generally cheaper than natural latex pillows, due to the amount of real rubber sap in them. They are also usually much “smellier”, and have a very particular smell that many find displeasing. They are also less dense, and flatten a lot faster than natural latex pillows and are more potent to collecting mold overtime.
