100% NZ Wool Pearl Pillow

Sleep healthier, sleep sounder with a Kind Face™ 100% NZ Wool Pearl Pillow. In a world filled with synthetic fibres and foams, we believe there is something refreshingly old school about a wool pillow.

Our handmade pillows are designed to give you the very best natural sleep experience. The signature 'Wool Pearls' are mechanically engineered wool knops providing superior support, comfort and neck alignment. We can't fit all of the benefits and features in this section - see below for more.

Proudly designed, hand-cut, stitched with love and hand-filled in our Avondale workroom to be kind to New Zealand and kind to you.

  • Temperature regulation - Wool is an exceptional insulator that keeps sleepers cool in summer and warm in winter. Temperature changes within wool are gradual, creating a stable microclimate which enables more restful sleep. If you are a 'hot sleeper', this is the pillow for you.
  • Moisture management - Wool’s naturally occurring proteins and microscopic pores attract and absorb water vapour. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, so sleepers are kept comfortable, not clammy.
  • Comfort and support - Wool is naturally springy and bouncy, which makes it a great fibre for use in pillows, providing soft comfort and effective support for your head and neck. You can easily adjust shape by reaching inside and fluffing up the wool pearls; or, if you feel the pillow is too full or not full enough, remove / add some fill. 
  • Non-allergenic - Wool fibres are covered in scales which trap dust, mould spores and other harmful allergens, removing them from the air and preventing them from being inhaled.
  • Fire resistant - The high keratin and moisture content of wool makes it naturally fire resistant, offering safety and peace of mind without the need for harmful chemicals.
  • We source our wool knops from local NZ farms where the sheep get lots of cuddles. Your purchase supports NZ industries, keeping profits in New Zealand.
    • The pillow case is made from premium Japara cotton, which is a finely woven natural waxed cotton. Highly durable, breathable, water-repellent and stain-resistant. We believe it is the best option for protecting the fill and ensuring you get a long life from your pillow.
    • Invisible zip allows for ease of laundering and adjustment to ensure comfort meets your preferences. Remove or add wool pearls, then give the pillow a good shake and fluff up to rebalance the fill.
    • Incredibly resilient, our 100% NZ Wool 'Pearls' (wool knops is the technical term) easily retain their loft and shape. Crafted in Christchurch.
    • Lavender pouch included. We make these in-house from calico cotton and NZ grown dried lavender flowers. You can choose to either insert inside the pillow or leave out. Trouble sleeping? Studies have shown lavender can help you fall asleep and improve overall quality of rest. These are just a few of the benefits of lavender. 
    • Your pillow comes packed in a calico cotton drawstring bag. We make these in-house and like to think you might re-use it as a laundry bag, book bag, shopping bag, kids PE gear bag etc. Also perfect for holding your wool knops if you decide to launder the pillow case. 

    Firmness guide: Medium to Firm. Remember, you can easily adjust the comfort level by removing or adding wool fill. Give the pillow a good shake and fluff up to rebalance the fill.

    • Standard = Perfect for Single through to Queen bed sizes.
      • 75cm x 48cm (pillowcase size)
      • Approx 12cm high when filled, with light pressure applied
      • 850grams (total weight) 
    • King = Perfect for King, Super King and larger bed sizes
      • 90cm x 48cm (pillowcase size)
      • Approx 12cm high when filled, with light pressure applied
      • 1050grams (total weight) 
    • You might notice a slight scent. It is actually proof the wool pearls are as natural and pure as possible, and this will air out in time or sooner if you remove the fill and allow to breath in the sunlight. During product testing we thought this feedback summed up the scent nicely "faint smell of a clean, healthy, warm barn... making for a healthy and loving feel to it.’’ Use the included lavender pack if desired. 
    • Kind Face™ products might have small imperfections due to the nature of being 100% handmade.
    • We recommend removing the wool knops and washing the 100% Japara Cotton cover as you would with any other cotton laundry.
    • Whilst the wool knops are out of the cover, take advantage of letting them breath and catching some sun. Wool loves the sun as much as it loves the fresh NZ air. The rays will naturally deodorize, disinfect, and renew your bedding.
    • Alternatively, you can hand wash the complete pillow in warm water with a wool detergent and let drip dry.

      We use Aramex Couriers and aim to dispatch orders on the same day we receive them.

          Great for Neck Alignment and Support

          Much more support than a normal pillow with synthetic fill and easy to adjust the fill down to the perfect weight. Holds shape and does not "deflate".
