Features you should know about the Woolroom Natural British Wool pillow
British Wool Balls is the main features you should know about the Woolroom Natural British Wool pillow, but certainly not the only important feature. We will also talk about cotton percale and other properties that wool can offer to you.
British wool balls
Microfibre is known as the best down alternative among polyester materials, and British Wool Balls represent the best natural replacement to goose down feather.
This pillow is filled with traceable organic British wool balls which are voluminous, weigh 770g and therefore create and maintain the loft very well. This kind of filling is medium firm and supportive.
Breathable cotton percale
To make this pillow all-natural, the 200 thread count cover is made of 100% cotton. Organic cotton is one of the softest and most comfortable materials and that is why it makes a great sleeping surface of this pillow. Also, cotton outer is cooling, further enhances breathability and along with wool filling works to wick moisture away from your head to make you comfortable all night long.
Natural anti-allergenic & cooling
As all materials used for Woolroom Natural British Wool pillow are ethically sourced, this pillow is naturally hypoallergenic. Wool comes from British farms that adhere to The Five Freedoms, and the cotton cover is OEKO-TEX Standard 100.
The combination of wool and cotton is cooling due to great breathability and removal of moisture and heat from you, so this pillow can be used all year round. And it won’t be too hot for hot sleepers either.
As fleece is very dense in sheep, it is natural that many residual matter can be found. Most wool pillows and other wool products are single-scoured, but Woolroom Natural British Wool pillow filling is double-scoured to make sure there is nothing inside but wool. Still, distinctive scent of sheep will certainly be present because it is impossible to avoid it, but to a lesser extent than with single-scoured wool products.
Suitable to all types of sleepers
Back sleepers, stomach sleepers and side sleepers will be equally pleased with the performance of the Woolroom Natural British Wool pillow. As it is a medium firm, it will be supportive enough for the back and stomach sleepers, and soft enough for the side sleepers. In all three sleep positions it is possible to achieve spine alignment when using this pillow which is most important for pain-free mornings and good night’s sleep.

We really like British Wool Balls as well as double-scoured wool and those two things definitely make this pillow among the best wool pillows on the United Kingdom market. We also support the endeavour of Woolroom to support British farmers.
How did we test the product?
It is available for next working day delivery for all UK orders over £ 50 which is great. You can also collect it at the store.
When the Woolroom Natural British Wool pillow arrived we first had to air it out to minimize the odor that is present in most natural materials. Craftsmanship is great and the 200 thread count cotton cover is so soft. It is only available in one size, which some customers will probably not like.
We repeated the overnight test 3 times to test it in different sleeping positions and it met all the requirements. Excellent balance of softness and support, and breathability is satisfactory. It can be used for all seasons. It happens to lose fluffiness at certain moments, but just have to shake it and it will be fluffy again. Some side sleepers may think this pillow is too hard, but our advice is to give it a chance for a few nights until you get used to it. Especially if you used a memory foam pillow before buying this one.
The cover is not removable and dry clean only, so you have virtually no obligation to maintain this pillow other than take it to dry cleaning.
