Wool and organic latex pillows

Wool and organic latex pillows

Wool and latex pillows combine the best properties of both materials.

Revolana’s wool and latex pillows contain a homogeneous blend of small wool beads and natural latex flakes. The mixture contains the same weight of wool and latex. However, as the wool is more voluminous for the same weight, the pillow seems to contain more wool than latex. The amount of fill is adjustable using a zipper on the pillow.

The envelope of the pillows is made in a top-of-the-range percale fabric, GOTS certified, 100% organic cotton, with 94 threads/cm². This fabric ensures the pillow its good performance and durability.

Benefits of wool in the pillow

No sweating or heating up

Wool is a fiber that breathes. It is able to absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and to exchange it with the ambient air. It thus regulates the humidity of the head and prevents overheating. The wool allows a healthy sleep without perspiration. Even in summer, the wool pillow stays perfectly comfortable. This will be especially welcome for children and people who tend to sweat more.

A healthy fiber

Wool is a healthy natural fiber that does not create a static charge. Contrary to popular belief, wool is naturally anti-dust mite. As it breathes, it remains a dry environment unfavorable to their development. In addition, it is slightly abrasive. The natural movement of the wool fibers between them shears the mites. Allergy sufferers can therefore use a wool and latex pillow without problem.

Wool beads give more volume

Wool beads give volume and remain independent of each other. They are formed from carded wool using a mechanical process that crosses the fibers in several directions. Wool beads mix very well with latex flakes and do not form packets. They are easy to spread in the pillow.

Untreated local wool

We use wool from mid-mountain sheep raised outdoors in the south of Serbia. Our wool is untreated. It is washed very carefully and ecologically with non-calcareous water locally. Our wool is completely clean with neutral smell.

The benefits of latex

When used in pillows, wool has only one drawback: under the weight of the head, it tends to compress with time. Natural latex is an elastic substance with very high resilience. If it compresses under the weight of the head, it always returns to its original shape. Combined with wool, latex prevents it from settling and gives the pillow more spring and puffiness. Latex is also hypoallergenic and bacteriostatic.

GOLS certified 100% natural latex

Our latex is certified GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) which is the standard of organic latex, as GOTS is the standard of the organic textile. This latex is 100% natural, made exclusively from rubber tree grown in India or Sri Lanka.

Adjustable pillows

All Revolana pillows feature an Oeko-Tex-certified YKK zipper that opens the pillow to access the wool and latex blend. It is thus possible to easily adjust the amount of mixture in the pillow. We propose refills of mixture if it is necessary to add some.

The pillow case can be machine washed once emptied from its contents. When whashing the pillow case it is a good opportunity to put the wool-latex blend outdoors. Wool regenerate at the contact of fresh air and sun. When putting the content back into the pillow, you can work on the wool quickly to give some volume.
