What sets my pillows apart from the rest is the fact that the exterior pillow is made with Robert Kaufman's 100% cotton Mammoth Flannel and the interior pillow is not your everyday poly fill pillow. The interior pillow is made from organic muslin and filled with Montana sourced wool batting and toss in a half cup of organic dried lavender. They smell amazing and from start to finish they are all natural materials.
Measurements: 12" x 11"
Why wool batting?
Wool is made up of such a complex blend of properties that modern science still cannot duplicate it or creates a synthetic clone. Wool fleece, with its tightly crimped fibers, contains many air pockets that insulate us, as it did the sheep, from the cold. Wool fibers breathe, allowing air to circulate instead of trapping it next to your body. A study at the Polytechnic Institute in Wales showed that wool comforters had a lowering effect on a sleeper's heart rate. Although some people do have a rare natural allergy to lanolin, the oil found in wool, most wool allergies are a reaction to the many harsh, toxic chemicals that go into the treatment and finishing of conventional wool garments and bedding. Serious chemical abrasives are routinely used to wash raw wool for processing. Chlorine and mothproofing chemicals are commonly applied to conventional wool before turning it into a finished product. The wool I use is washed and processed without harsh chemicals.
Did you know?
Wool reduces common bedroom allergens because it is naturally mold and mildew resistant. As it wicks and releases moisture, it constantly regulates it's environment. Other natural fibers, such as down and cotton, absorb and hold moisture. Dust mites, which feed on the skin cells we shed during sleep, proliferate in synthetic and feather pillow and are a common allergen. At least 10 percent of the population suffers from a dust mite allergy. Symptoms include sneezing, itchy and watering eyes, runny nose, stuffy nose, stuffy ears, and respiratory problems including asthma. Wool does not harbor dust mites or bacteria!
