7. How do I choose a wool, or all natural latex pillow?
We offer Eco or Organic Wool-filled pillows, 100% natural latex pillows, molded, contour or shredded, and organic cotton-filled, and kapok-filled pillows. All natural-fiber filled pillows will compress about 1/3 over time. Latex will keep it's integrity for a long time.
Cotton is a static fiber and will provide a firmer, flatter pillow. A wool pillow is springier, resilient and has the best moisture-wicking properties. The most down-like is our kapok-filled or shredded latex pillows. The natural latex pillow soap shape or contour pillow comes in soft and firm natural latex and is very supportive and doesn't give like filled pillows.
As a general guideline, side sleepers need extra fill pillow, back sleepers need a medium fill pillow, stomach sleepers need light fill pillows. All our pillows can be used with our wool neck roll.
Please remember – choosing a pillow is a personal selection and only the one using our pillows can know and make the final decision.
8. Why should I choose a wool mattress pad or a wool mattress topper or an all natural latex topper?
A wool pad or topper will provide a comfortable layer underneath with all its benefits - wicks moisture away, helping to regulate body temperature and regulate heart rate. Our wool pads add a layer of softness to any conventional mattress.
The 3” and 4" wool mattress topper will have more of a nesting quality since it compresses by 1/3 where you lay. The wool will come up around you, gently cradling you while you sleep.
Our other pads, are available in 1" or 2" thickness, will settle somewhat flatter than our 3” and 4" wool mattress toppers. They also may have the advantage of being small enough to be cold air fluffed in the dryer for moisture removal.
The natural latex pads are covered with organic cotton and wool quilted to the cover, giving you all the benefits of wool and still provide extra support and pressure point relief.
Our seasonal pad has a cool, breathable layer of cotton on one side for the warmer summer and fall months and a layer of wool for the cooler months. Back to Top
