Denman Island Atelier Handmade Organic Wool Pillow

100% local organically grown wool pillow with organic cotton casing. Add-on choice of organic cotton, hemp, or linen pillow case in natural or ivory (depending on our fabric stock). Entire product is undyed, unbleached, sweatshop-free and cruelty-free. This special organic wool pillow is perfect for sleep, for kids, for travel, as well as makes a great organic wool lumbar support pillow for sitting on a chair or in the car.

The Denman Atelier Organic Wool Pillow measures approximately 9" x 14". 14oz wool fill weight. 19oz pillow weight (with ticking).

Why do we not make a bigger size in this handmade atelier pillow? Because of the limited quantity of local cruelty-free organic wool we have access to, plus the labor-intensiveness and the length of time it takes to handmake everything. We offer organic cotton and wool pillows in all other sizes in other modules, which are machine-picked and machine-carded in volume. Just the Denman Island-made organic pillow is available in this one size because of the constraints listed above.

Wool pillows provide a soft, resilient support for a restful night and this 9" x 14" size is perfect for travel and for kids, too. Made on Denman Island, home of Rawganique. Sweatshop-free. Chemical-free.

The wool used for the filling comes from pet sheep on Denman Island. They need to be sheared once a year and we've gone around and gathered up wool from our neighbors' pet sheep. This wool would normally have been burned as waste product, because the owners don't know what to do with it. The sheep are raised on free-range untreated organic pasture.

We wash the raw wool eight times with chemical-free organic soap and spring water. The natural lanolin is still present as a natural preservative in the wool. The organic wool is completely unbleached & undyed (from naturally white, grey and brown/black sheep).

The wool is then hand-picked using an old-fashioned wooden picker. This is a time-honored craft that we're proud to keep alive. We then hand-layer this gorgeous organic cruelty-free wool into the case that Christine, Rawganique's own local artisan, handcrafts from our in-house 100% organic cotton twill ticking.

You may choose to purchase this rare and unique, ultra-special organic cruelty-free wool sleep/travel/kid pillow with your choice of custom 100% organic cotton, 100% organic linen, or 100% organic hemp pillow case, also hand-crafted by Christine.

This laborious process recycles a useful 100% organic and natural product into a pure organic pillow that you will love using night after night, trip after trip. And no animal is harmed in the process.
