For healthy sleep and quality rest, we here in Woolville can recommend sheep wool bedding, and this pillow is the basis of it. Merino sheep wool is a natural material that is obtained from the fleece of young sheep, when the wool is the finest and its products are therefore soft and pleasant for human skin; there is no unpleasant feeling of scratching here.
Inside the pillow is a hollow fiber filling, which ensures a stable shape and airiness of the pillow.
Merino wool can also regulate the temperature well, so it heats up in the winter without being too hot - and in the summer it cools down nicely and removes any excess moisture away from your body if you sweat during the night. Wake up every day dry and comfortable, and ready to start a new day full of energy.
The handy zipper on one of the edges of the pillow allows easy maintenance of the pillow cover, which can be washed either by hand or at a maximum of 30°C in the washing machine.
You will surely appreciate that the Vlnka brand pillows are made in a company with a long tradition, where the emphasis is primarily on high quality. By purchasing this product, you will support the Czech manufacturer.

This product is ideally maintained by a dry cleaning method offered by all conventional dry cleaners. This method of cleaning does not cause precipitation or deformation.
This product can be hand washed, we recommend a bath up to 30 ° C. When rinsing, it is sufficient to gradually reduce the water temperature to avoid precipitation or deformation. Then just gently squeeze and dry horizontally to prevent material from being pulled out. A suitable maintenance product is Lanolin, which we offer is as gentle as possible for sheep wool.
We do not recommend washing the product in the washing machine.
Be sure not to dry the product on heater. In case the heating exceeds the temperature of 30 ° C, (which is quite normal) the water contained in the knit is also heated above 30 ° C and the product shrinks in the same way as in an unsuitable wash.
When drying in a dryer, we recommend using intelligent woolen balls that absorb the moisture of the laundry, reduce its static charge, make it easier to work with ironing and even fulfill the function of fabric softener. They can also be used outside the dryer by placing them in the laundry basket for a while, where they can also absorb moisture in the meantime before hanging.
Do not use fabric softener!
Machine washing will degrade the product, knit the fabric and shrink. Such a degraded product cannot be claimed.
Sheep wool is one of the oldest textile materials, along with silk from China and flax from Egypt. The sheep and the dog were the first friends of man. The sheep could feed a man and warm him up during the harsh winters. Traditional woolen materials still have an irreplaceable position in our closets today because of their unique properties, which no artificial material has ever surpassed.
Wool has the natural ability to transport moisture away from the body into the environment. It can absorb water up to 35% of its own weight. Once the ambient humidity is reduced, the water starts to evaporate again into the air. So the feeling of wet clothes comes much later than with other materials.
When wool absorbs moisture, it also generates heat. And you can feel pleasant dry heat despite bad weather. Conversely, when the ambient temperature rises, the wool stops generating heat. It is therefore an active thermoregulation that the wool is capable of. Due to the high lanolin content, the wool is self-cleaning. Wool fibers stimulate movement in the air and begin to expand and contract dynamically. In combination with lanolin, dirt will come to the surface itself.
