Who is V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow for?

If you have never used a V-shaped pillow, also called a triangle pillow, you should definitely give it a try. It is not created only for the needs of basic sleep positions, but it is a great choice for people who have different health conditions including physically healthy condition such as pregnancy.

What do we use this product for?

This pillow has a significantly different shape compared to regular pillows, so its purpose is also somewhat different.

Features you should know about V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow

Let’s break down together the five most important features of V-Shaped Washable Wool pillow.

Traceable British wool

It is impossible to mistake wool for any other material. There is no wool alternative because this natural material is so specific, in a positive way of course. At the same time, it is comfortable, supportive, breathable, wicks moisture away and it is naturally flame retardant.

It is even better when the product contains fully traceable wool. You will get the QR code on your Deluxe product so you can trace back the wool to a UK farm. Unlike feather and down, wool is vegan-friendly because sheep shearing is not cruel procedure, on the contrary, it is necessary for the animal's health. When the wool is traceable, then you are also sure that the sheep are grown responsibly on well managed land.

Organic cotton cover

It would be a shame to encase this pillow in any other material that is not cotton. In order to get a 100% natural product, the Woolroom company decided on unbleached 200 thread count organic cotton. This cover has all the characteristics of cotton, such as breathability, softness and durability. Thread count is adequate, TC does not matter as much as some companies like to emphasise. Since cotton is organic, you can be sure that your face is resting on a safe and healthy surface, away from harmful chemicals.

Adjustable

Adjustable pillows are increasingly popular on the sleep market, and the reason is obvious – the number of potential customers is incomparably greater when the pillow is adjustable. Such pillows usually have a few layers of memory foam or shredded memory foam cubes that you can add or remove.

It is not often that a pillow with natural filling is adjustable, but the V-Shaped Washable Wool pillow is. Adjust firmness and therefore loft by opening the safety zip on the horizontal side of the pillow and removing wool balls.

Machine washable

We recommend taking the wool out of the pillow and then washing the cotton cover on its own. This will also allow you to fluff up the wool ahead of putting it back in the pillow.
As for filling, you should wash it using wool/delicate cycle at 30 degrees, special wool detergent, and a spin speed lower than 800RPM. It is not suitable for tumble dryer.

Hypoallergenic

Some allergy sufferers may be reluctant to try any natural material, but wool is actually 100% hypoallergenic. If you're itchy when you're near wool, it's a sensitivity to lanolin, a waxy natural substance, but not a wool allergy, which in theory doesn't even exist. Many studies have shown that wool itself is very unlikely to be an allergen.

It is approved by Allergy UK. Also wool is naturally mould, mildew and dust mite resistant which are characteristics of utmost importance for any person with allergies.

Review of V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow

Our reviewer sleeping on the Woolroom V-Shaped washable Wool Pillow

V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow is a breath of fresh air in the UK sleep market. There are not many all-natural products, especially of such high quality as this one. Filled with traceable British wool and cover with unbleached organic cotton, what else can you expect?

That's not all. It is v-shaped, which is the best pillow shape for pregnant women, nursing mothers and all those recovering from surgery. It is also very comfortable for the general population, especially for side sleepers. Most back sleepers will have pleasant night’s sleep as well. Your body frame is not crucial in this case since the pillow is adjustable making it appropriate for most of the population.

You will experience top-level support, comfort and breathability. The pillow is easy to maintain because you can wash both cover and wool balls. Be careful to wash the wool following the care instructions, otherwise you can compromise its service life. You don't have to worry about allergic reactions, because it is 100% hypoallergenic.

The common problems with the Woolroom V-Shaped Wool Pillow & how to solve them

I could not single out a single common problem with V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow. The shape, size and some other characteristics are certainly not a good fit for certain types of sleepers, but this is not a problem that can be solved. Those who don't like it should look for another model and that's it. On the other hand, those who want a natural V-shaped pillow most likely won’t have any complains.

Check the alternatives to V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow

We assume that you are not here because you want a memory foam pillow, for example. That's why we chose a pillow from the same company as an alternative, which has many similar features but a classic shape.

Woolroom Natural British Wool Pillow

The filling is the same – traceable British wool, as is the cover – 200 thread count cotton, except that the cotton is not organic.

It is not adjustable, but the classic shape makes it suitable for all three sleep positions, as well as combination sleepers. Perhaps the biggest difference is maintenance.

You can only dry clean it. Woolroom Natural British Wool Pillow is hypoallergenic and eco-friendly. Value for money is excellent even when it is not on sale. The first few days you will smell a distinctive wool odour.

Consider Chatsworth Collection Washable Wool Duvet if you are buying V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow

Product image of Chatsworth Collection Washable Wool Duvet.

Complete your all-natural sleep experience with Chatsworth Collection Washable Wool Duvet.

The same combination of British wool and organic cotton gives a duvet equivalent to 11-14 TOG rating, which means a winter duvet, and not an all-season one.

It is certified by Allergy UK as the only natural duvet to hold the Allergy UK Seal of Approval and that speaks volumes.

The duvet is machine washable at 40 degrees using wool detergent. Keep in mind that it is heavier than the average duvet.

You can return for a refund within 30 days so it is a risk-free purchase.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

This product does not have many, if any, competitors, so it is somewhat difficult to say what makes it better than some other similar ones. We are aware of just two other V-shaped wool pillows on the market. Anyway, there is no denying that the V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow is a top-notch pillow not just among wool or V-shaped pillows but in general. It will give you a comfortable sleep primarily because it is highly supportive and temperature regulating.

How did we test the product?

our reviewer testing the Woolroom V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow

We take into account consumer reviews, product materials, and, of course, how the item performs. How do we assess performance? Precisely in this order:

  • Visual inspection
  • Hands-on inspection
  • Measured tests.

Certain features like breathability require additional tests:

Is V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow eco-friendly or sustainable?

In terms of eco-friendliness and sustainability, it doesn't get any better than this. Not a single material or part of the production is harmful to our environment. If all sleep products are made of organic cotton and traceable wool, the planet Earth would be significantly less polluted. Premium durability also contributes to sustainability because you won't be buying a new pillow anytime soon.

Overall impressions of the product after the testing

After using the product for a few weeks, we are sure that it will be one of the best sellers. It fulfilled all our expectations and even more. Everything that the manufacturer advertised is true. You will fall in love with it the second you start using it. Of course, if a V-shaped pillow is what you need. If that's not the shape you want, then consider the alternative we told you about.

Overall grade – 9.5 out of 10, only because we believe nothing is flawless. But after reading our V-Shaped Washable Wool Pillow review, what do you think? Let us know in the comments!
