What we like about the Rawganique Organic Wool Pillow
Rawganique’s wool pillow is a great choice if you like your pillow soft but with a little push back and resilience. Wool is also thermoregulating, making this pillow ideal all year round, whether it’s hot, cold, or in-between. The moisture-wicking and thermoregulating properties of wool also make this pillow a top choice for hot-sleepers.
Rawganique offers its wool bed pillow in three sizes and three lofts, and with an optional zipper, so you can also adjust the loft at home yourself.
The three sizes are as follows:
- Standard (20 by 26 inch)
Queen (20 x 30 inch)
- King (20 x 36 inch).
For stomach-sleepers, the slim loft option is best, with the medium loft good for back-sleepers, and the firm loft best for side-sleepers.
I strongly recommend getting the pillow with the zipper. That way, you can adjust the loft to perfectly meet your needs. The zipper also means that you can empty out the wool and wash the cover, should you need to. The cover is an organic cotton sateen, which means it has a dense weave that helps to keep the wool inside and reduces the risk of tearing and pilling.
Downsides to the Rawganique Organic Wool Pillow
Like most wool pillows, this pillow isn’t machine washable. Instead you can empty out the wool and wash the organic cotton cover on a gentle cycle with cold water, then line dry or dry on low to avoid shrinkage. You can also just spot-clean the cover and occasionally air out the pillow in the sun to freshen it up.
Wool isn’t as heavy as latex but is heavier than kapok and polyester. Note that the King size firm loft pillow weighs up to 5 lbs., which may feel heavy for some sleepers.
Wool also tends to compress fairly easily and can flatten significantly over time. The best way to avoid this is to fluff your pillow every morning and night. You can also put your wool pillow in the dryer on low or no heat with a couple of new tennis balls or wool dryer balls to fluff it up again.
Rawganique used to offer its wool pillow in a Travel size but now only has the three standard bed pillow sizes. However, because Rawganique makes each pillow by hand to order, you can contact the company to request a Travel size.
Final thoughts on the Rawganique Organic Wool Bed Pillow
The Rawganique Organic Wool Pillow is an excellent all-round wool pillow available in a variety of sizes and lofts. I love that Rawganique now has GOTS organic certification for the wool it uses to fill this pillow, given that this certification provides some assurance over animal welfare as well as the absence of certain hazardous chemical inputs.
Wool is a great pillow material for all sleep positions; you just have to get the loft right and maintain the loft with regular fluffing. If you want a springier pillow, though, check out the wool and latex pillows from Savvy Rest (see our review), and if you want a really breathable pillow that molds to your head and neck, consider the Buckwheat and Wool Pillow from Rawganique (see our review). For something much softer, try the kapok pillow from Savvy Rest (see our review).
