Our Euro/Continental Pillow 60x60cm is filled with 1000gms of organically cleaned, pure Demeter certified fleece wool, and encased with 400 thread count sateen-finish certified organic cotton fabric.
The Demeter certified wool used in all Blessed Earth’ pillows quilts and toppers is from Cowobbee Pastoral Company, Oberon NSW. The superb, 400 thread count organic sateen outer covering is light and fine enough to resist wool "creep" through the fabric. We pay a premium of over 100% for the fact that these materials are certified organic. These are the finest wool bedding products in the world and they cannot be compared to cheap imports claiming to be made in Australia
It is especially designed to offer both comfort and support. Your wool pillow will pack down about 25% over time, nowhere near as much as cotton, and will retain it’s natural resilience.
Please Note: Blessed Earth advises the use of a pillow protector to ensure the long life of your pillow as washing of wool pillows is not recommended.
Regular airing in sunshine is a great way to freshen up and sanitise your pillow.
A note about scouring: Scouring is the process by which wool is cleaned. The conventional process is to "carbonise" it using sulphuric acid, which dissolves all vegetable matter that might be contained in the wool. Obviously, we refuse to use that process and as a consequence there may be occasional impurities in the wool. which can show through the cover. Similarly, the covers on all our wool bedding products are unbleached organic cotton. Consequently there can be the occasional slight mark on the product which would normally be bleached out in a conventional product. Please regard these as beauty spots - further evidence of the purity of the product you are buying.
This product is proudly made in Australia.
