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 natural 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. Four sizes are available: Standard, King (also known as Lodge), Euro and Child which is low profile, suitable for ages 3 - 6 years and includes a 100% Cotton Pillowcase to protect this custom sized pillow!

You can also purchase top-up packs if you want to add more / new fill in the future.

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 Auckland workroom to be kind to New Zealand, and to you.

  • 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 the 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 that trap dust, mould spores and other harmful allergens, removing them from the air and preventing them from being inhaled.
  • 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 that 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.
  • 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 from local NZ farms where both the sheep and the environment are happy and healthy. Your purchase supports NZ industries, keeping profits in New Zealand.
    • The pillowcase 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.
    • An 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% New Zealand 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 dried lavender flowers. You can choose to either insert it inside the pillow or leave it out. Trouble sleeping? Studies have shown lavender can help you fall asleep and improve the overall quality of rest. These are just a few of the benefits of lavender. 
    • Your natural wool 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 pillowcase. 

    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.

    • You might notice a slight scent. It is actually proof the natural wool pearls are as pure as possible, and this will air out in time or sooner if you remove the fill and allow to breathe 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.
    • DO NOT machine wash the Wool Pillow.
    • We recommend removing the wool pearls and washing the 100% Japara Cotton cover as you would with any other white, cotton laundry. Washing in cold water will ensure no shrinkage.
    • Whilst the wool pearls are out of the cover, take advantage of letting them breathe 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 them in warm water with a wool detergent and let them drip dry.

          Just lovely

          I've given it a few nights before posting my review for this pillow.
          It is great, I'm so pleased with my purchase. Price is excellent and the ability to alter the wool inner to suit your preference is great. Took a couple of nights to get the full level right but so happy now.
          The little lavender sachet is such a nice little treat too.
          Definitely recommend if you're looking for a great wool pillow without any extra foam or other 'bits'. Thanks Kind Face team, love your work!

          Awesome

          I love the pillow. I used to wake up with a headache often, now it's infrequent. Using way less meds which has to be a good thing. Thank you Kind Face

          Hi Julie. Thank you posting your feedback. You have made our (Level 4 lockdown) day sharing the Wool Pearl Pillow is helping you sleep and reducing the meds you need. We wish you many more great sleeps :)

          Sleeping peacefully

          I purchased my pillows in the hope of a great sleep, I love mine but my husband did not so my daughter has the other, I also like the fact that I can wash the wool separately in a bag or leave in the sun

          Comfy after removing some fill

          Definitely too much fill for my comfort levels when it arrived, but removing some has resulted in a pillow that's just right. Love the sheepy smell from it too.

          Thank you for your feedback Rachel. One of our original goals was to produce a pillow that can be easily adjusted ... and knowing this was something you valued means we can put a tick alongside that goal :)
