Wool bolus pillows are amazing! Unlike pillows filled with wool batting which compresses over time, these pillows contain little woolen balls that don’t clump together, which keeps your pillow fluffy over years of use. The loose nature of the soft, balled-up wool reduces pressure on the ear of side-sleepers. It is also temperature-regulating and malleable, forming to the shape of your head and allowing you to scrunch and shape it. The pillow is stuffed very full so you can remove some woolly balls and save them for later in case your sleeping position changes or if it flattens out a bit over time.
The pea-sized pellets of wool are pre-felted, which means you can wash the whole pillow on cold/gentle cycle, not just the pillowcase as with other wool pillows (though you will want to pin the zipper closed or enclose the pillow in a laundry bag to prevent the zipper from opening in your washer). Every few washes you can use a wool detergent to put the lanolin back in to maintain its beneficial properties. Tumble dry on low with dryer balls to break up the wool and bring back its original loft. If line-dried, place in a cool dryer with dryer balls to fluff up the wool filling. The woolie ball pillow has always been one of our customers’ favorites!
