Travel and Child Size Eco-Wool Pillow 12″ x 20″. Handmade with orgainic cotton sateen shell. (Pillow cases not included).
Eco-Valley Wool Travel Pillows are made exclusively using Natural Felt Wool sustainably farmed in the Pacific NW, and encased in an organic cotton shell. We receive our wool from Natural Felt, a sister company. They create the bats of wool by blending wool from different sheep breeds. They visit each wool grower to assure that the wool comes from healthy sheep, raised sustainably on managed lands. Paid a premium for the best fleeces of their flocks from the collaborating growers, the fleece is cleaned and carded which produces the finest known woolen batting available.
You are assured that the following are true about our wool:
Proper Grazing Methods: Adequate field rotation to decrease soil erosion and to reduce the risk of sheep acquiring internal parasites.
Predator Friendly: Growers are encouraged to use trained sheep guardian dogs (not trapping or shooting) and the inclusion of other large animals, such as llamas, to guard the flock.
Healthy Veterinary Practices: Only certain kinds of medications and supplements are used to treat the sheep. Alternative caring methods are used to keep the sheep healthy with fewer chemicals.
Chemical Control: Natural Felt opposes the use of herbicides and pesticides on the fields that sheep graze on.
Natural Felt is able to determine if the growers use those chemicals with their routine wool chemical testing.
Scouring: Natural Felt carding mill has searched out the mildest and most environmentally friendly detergent possible for the scouring (cleaning) of the wool. Today, all of their wool is cleaned with Biosoft Wool Scouring Detergent, which leaves no detectable residue and is biodegradable.
In addition to personal visits to assure proper growing methods, they send samples of their wool to laboratory for chemical testing.
Your wool bedding is ready to use. There are no chemicals located in our production facility, no animals on-site, and we have a fragrance-free environment. Please be aware, that all organic fabrics have an applied “finish” at the mill. For our organic fabrics, the mills use either a soybean or corn starch finish-added to keep the fabric from wrinkling. This is a natural finish and does not need to be removed before use.
