Bed Pillow- Woolly "Down"
This is the most malleable pillow we offer. Shape it, hug it, even unstuff it a little if you’d like. We designed this pillow to support you the way you’d like to be supported.
Meet our most popular & versatile pillow: The Woolly “Down” Bed Pillow.
The tiny wool puffs are similar to down feathers in the sense that you can move the filling around to be any shape you desire. The wool puffs have more substance than down and can take a shape and hold it...until you want it to move it around to a different shape.
This pillow won’t compress as much as regular wool batting pillows tend to do, plus it is easier to wash and care for than our other wool products. Bonus!
We designed this with a zippered cover for added versatility. With it, you can easily add more puffs or take some out if it is too thick.This is a medium-filled pillow. If you like a thicker pillow, we sell bags of additional puffs available in 3 and 6 ounce increments to customers who purchase this pillow or have in the past. Simply unzip & and add it in.
This Product Uses The Following Raw Materials:
These soft puffs offer optimal malleability. All the breathable benefits of wool, plus soft, squishable support that’s similar to a down-feather product. Unlike down, however, these puffs are grown and safely sheared from the sheep year after year.The Woolly “Down” Pillows are now made with local domestic Northeast Eco-Wool. This means the wool is sourced in the USA and supports small sheep farmers in the Northeast.

Natural wool is a timeless option for bedding. It’s actually been used for centuries. Our grandmothers knew the many benefits that wool provides, now you do too.
Why Is Wool Bedding So Great?
Wool is the most breathable filling material available, making it both cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It actually helps to regulate your body temperature.
Wool is a natural material; something grown, not made in a lab. Your body knows the difference. Wool surpasses synthetic fill in terms of quality and durability.
Dust Mite Resistant
Wool is a great choice if dust mites bug you or if you’re allergic. Dust mites can't live in wool due to microscopic bristles on the wool fibers.
Anti-Microbial & Anti-Bacterial
Amazingly, wool resists bacteria. It’s actually both antimicrobial and antibacterial.
Naturally Fire Resistant
Wool is fire resistant, providing a safe sleeping environment. Wool does not catch on fire and actually acts as a natural fire retardant.
A Renewable Resource, From Sheep
Unlike bedding that uses plucked down feathers, a sheep grows a coat of wool annually and is not harmed during shearing (it’s like getting a haircut).
Supports Small Farms And Farmers
Wool is a sustainable product and helps small farmers make a living.
Sustainable And Lasting
With proper care, your woollen bedding can last for decades.
It Stays In Place In Your Bedding
Wool batting, being one continuous piece, stays in place in our products and is hand-tufted to further secure it. This is unlike down bedding which shifts over time and creates bare spots in a comforter.
- Place inside a Zippered Pillow Cover or an additional pillowcase for protection.
Wool Wrapped Latex pillows are not washable. Please keep out of direct sunlight for longest life & best use.
The Woolley “Down” is a very easy pillow to care for. Keep the puffs inside the case to wash and use our special instructions provided.
- On rare occasions, the puffs clump due to sweat or heat. To un-clump, simply unzip and pull apart the puffs, and voila! A refreshed and fluffy pillow.
A few words about compression. For pillows made with “Wool Layers” compression is normal. It happens to the best of pillows. The fresh carded wool has lots of air in it that becomes compressed with the weight and heat of your head.
Consider also, your pillow has conformed to the weight of your head to support your neck and spine during sleep. Compression is not a bad thing, it’s a support thing.
- Expect your wool-layered pillow to compress up to 30% of its thickness within the first few months of regular use. Please take this into consideration for your initial purchase and find the thickness that is best for you.
- If you are concerned about compression or are not sure which pillow thickness is best for you we suggest ordering the Woolley “Down” pillow which will not compress and the thickness is always adjustable.
FOR ALL OUR PRODUCTS:
Unmake Your Bed
One of the best things you can do is unmake your bed in the morning for a few hours, allowing the moisture you gave off during the night to evaporate from the wool bedding.
Sunning Your Bedding
Placing your wool bedding in the sun a few times per year is an excellent way to refresh and cleanse your bedding using the benefits of the sun. Sunning will naturally deodorize, bleach, disinfect, and revitalize your bedding.
Protection Is Key
Protect your wool bedding by placing it inside an appropriate cotton cover that can be washed regularly and act as a barrier for your bedding during everyday use.
- Place a comforter inside a duvet cover
- Put your pillow inside a zippered pillow cover and then into a pillow case
- For mattress toppers, use a moisture barrier and then a fitted sheet
Do I need to wash my bedding before I use it?
No, your wool bedding is ready to use. There’s no need to wash it unless it’s your preference. There are no chemicals located in our production facility, no animals on-site, no finishes used on the fabric and we maintain a Scent Free facility.
Can my bedding be washed & how?
Most of our wool bedding can be washed using our special washing instructions provided with your purchase. If you need a copy of the washing instructions please Contact Us and we’ll email it to you as soon as possible.
In case of emergency:
- Gently spot clean the affected area.
- Set aside to later wash the entire product once you have received the washing instructions.
- You can also treat the problem area with live cultured enzymes which eliminate odors. (i.e. Biokleen makes a product called Bac Out.) These enzyme products can be found at your local health food store/ co-op.
- If you need another copy of the washing instructions, please contact us.
Can I take it to a dry cleaner?
We do not recommend dry cleaning unless it is taken to a certified "green" dry cleaner. Regular dry cleaners use chemicals to clean, defeating the purpose of having a natural bedding product.

Our Eco Wool is a blend of about 7 different types of wool varying from fine to coarse in order to create the most ideal wool fiber for use in bedding.

“I purchased a wool extra thick pillow. I absolutely love it! My new pillow gives me the neck support I need to get a good night sleep. I wake up every morning pain free! Thanks, so much for such a wonderful product!”
Elk Point, SD
“I love my wool pillow. It’s just the right density. My husband didn’t understand why I wanted to replace my cheap polyester pillow. However, he’s been stealing my new wool pillow every night!”
New York, NY
“Before these pillows, we would wake up in the morning and be stuffed up. Since sleeping on these pillows, we can breathe clearly on awakening.”
“I am very pleased with my purchase. My pillow is very comfortable and keeps me cooler with the organic wool in the pillow.”
"I have a "Light Fill" pillow now which I love!"
“I bought the heaviest wool fill pillow you sell. For years now, I have had a problem with my shoulder/back muscles freezing up do to bad sleeping position of my neck. I have NOT had such problems since I bought your pillow.”
Jamaica Plain, MA
“I have one of the regular and one of the "down" pillows, as my husband and I have different preferences. I like that I can punch and fluff my woolley down pillow. He likes that his is more solid under his head. We both sleep much better on our wool pillows than any others we have owned.”
Friday Harbor, WA
"I am very satisfied. The pillows are very soft and so comfortable that I am ordering more as well as the quality of the bed sheets are outstanding so far. I was surprised at how soft the pillows were and how easy they were to clean and use. The regular fills are perfect for my kids and my husband and I use the thicker fills. They support and hold my head better than regular pillows."
“I love my new Holy Lamb Organics pillow. After just two nights of sleeping on my new pillow my neck and upper back pain has completely gone away. The pillow is very comfortable and my sleep is better too.”
“I absolutely love my pillows. I am actually enjoying more restful sleep as a result... The fact that it is all natural makes feel even cozier; it feels like I am back in time when people relied more on just what the earth provided.”
San Francisco, CA
Woolley “Down” Pillows
“I have a woolley "down" pillow (little tufts of wool) and I love it...it has the flexibility of down but it's wool. Brilliant.”
"I like the option to change how much fill is in pillow by adding or subtracting nibs. Made in the US and wool is from the U.S.”
“I am so happy with my Woolly Down pillow. I have TMJ and from the first night sleeping on the pillow, I noticed an improvement. Before, I would wake up most mornings with sore jaws. That has all but disappeared since sleeping on the Woolly Down pillow. Morning congestion has almost disappeared also. I have a feeling when I can replace my mattress with one of yours, that will improve even more. Also, an unexpected benefit is that the dreaded "bed head" after sleeping all night is no more. Even my hair is seeing an improvement!"
“I am very happy with my purchase of the Woolley Down Pillow. It's the most comfortable pillow I have ever slept on. It is so comfortable and I seem to sleep deeper and don't wake up with congestion in my sinuses."
“I like my “down” pillow because it does not clump and is nice and fluffy still and the comforter is wonderful, I am looking forward to winter when I use it again: light in weight, cozy warm to snuggle into!”
Wool Wrapped Latex
"The pillow is the most comfortable head pillow I've ever owned."
San Francisco, CA
"It is the only pillow I feel comfortable sleeping on and doesn't feel weird for my body on any level! My family members try to steal it from me too. We obviously need to get more."
“(The pillow) has truly altered my sleeping experience. It is so incredibly soft, both the fabric and the overall softness of the pillow. I look forward to laying my head on it each night."
San Francisco, CA
"We LOOOOOOOOVE our new pillows...sleep has never been so yummy."
Neck Support: Neck Roll
“I have two different kinds of wool pillows and a neck roll. I love the "flatter" pillow and use the fluffier one to bolster my upper body when I'm reading in bed. I use the neck pillow to support my head (I place it to the side of my head) when I sleep on my back, using the flatter wool pillow.”
“I have a lot of neck pain from pillows that were not the right density, but this pillow seems to be perfect and provides a very comfortable sleep- I never have to adjust my pillow at night."
Neck Support: Orthopedic Pillow
"I have a neck injury that makes me finicky about pillows. Down and Tempur-Pedic pillows are too hot and cause disk inflammation. This is the first pillow I've found that has 2 internal contours like a posturpedic pillow. It's the most comfortable I've found anywhere."
San Francisco, CA
“I bought the neck pillow and it is so wonderful and soothing, I have a neck injury that flares up and I cannot wait to go to bed and lay on the pillow! The orthopedic neck pillow is so comfortable and soft and fresh. I have had it for a few weeks and could not imagine sleeping without it!”
Staten Island, NY
“I have an orthopedic pillow and I love it. I bought it for my husband but I have been using it for the last 2 weeks while he has been away. I don't know if he will be getting it back.”
Cooper Landing, AK
"I have the orthopedic neck pillow and I love it. It is just right level-wise. I think I wake up less, I used to wake up to re-fix my old pillow at least 2-3 times a night."
Egg Harbor Township, NJ
“My orthopedic pillow provides outstanding neck and head support without the unpleasant synthetic feel. It breathes, so not too hot or cold. I’m most grateful for who you are and what you do.”
“Yes, it’s the best ergo/orthopedic pillow I’ve ever used. Normally ergo/orthopedic pillows are toxic, and natural pillows are not ergo, so it’s great that you’ve actually combined the best of both!”
“Out of all the other orthopedic pillow I've tried (chiropractic pillows, tempurpedic) this one has been the most comfortable. The support of your orthopedic pillow is perfect!”
“Trying to reduce nighttime neck discomfort and pillow heat, I knew I wanted a contoured wool-wrapped-in-cotton pillow. Taking price, construction, and appearance into consideration, it was easy to make a good decision from your helpful website.”
“Being severely chemically sensitive, it is wonderful to find organic wool pillows, and pillow covers, that allow me to sleep without any allergic reactions.”
Body Pillows: Body Pillow
“I was struck by the high quality of every element of my body pillow (the fabric, the stuffing, the stitching, etc.). The packaging was very sweet and a nice touch.”
Iowa City, IA
"I LOVE my two regular bed pillows and REALLY love my body pillow. Your company is wonderful. You truly care for others (sheep included!) and that's why I chose you. Keep up the great work and the caring."
Kure Beach, NC
“Love them! I sleep with a Holy Lamb wool pillow at my head and a Holy Lamb wool body pillow. They're pleasant year round. I've had them for a couple of years and they're keeping their shapes nicely!”
Brooklyn Park, MD
“My new body pillow is so comfy, I'm only 3 months pregnant, but I've always been a stomach sleeper and it has become too uncomfortable, so the body pillow makes it much easier to get comfortable."
Body Pillows: Buddy Pillow
“I am crazy about my Buddy pillow– not too big and not too small, keeps my knees, ankles and hips from fighting each other during the night (now my husband wants one).”
Gig Harbor, WA
"Just wanted to let you know that we received our order yesterday. Oh my goodness! How wonderful it all is. So beautifully crafted and amazingly comfy! Thank you!"

Thank you for providing a quality, durable and timeless product. Please don't ever stray from the integrity that you have established!...Thank you again :)”
“My son has a lot of allergies, and is pillow doesn't bother him at all. Great success!”
Friday Harbor, WA
