Absolutely in Love!
"My son is 2.5 and has very bad allergies that are especially bad at night. Our pediatrician suggested we try using wool bedding to give him a more restful night. While searching I noticed that all wool products are pretty expensive. I would totally be reluctant to spend this much on a pillow. Now that it has arrived I understand and agree with the hefty price tag!
If you didn't know, synthetic pillows double in weight after 18 months. Why? Because, it is filled with fecal matter of dust mites and other allergens. Synthetic material isn't very breathable so the approximate liter of moisture you lose at night is stuck in your pillow and acts as a breeding ground for bacteria, dust mites and allergens. You are breathing this the entire time you sleep and this is the main cause of my son's allergies. Thankfully, organic wool, like that of what is used in this pillow, is hypoallergenic and the natural occurring lanolin oil has antibacterial and dust mite repellant properties.
Our pillow arrived in a vacuum sealed bag and exactly as pictured. I always do the smell test on anything I receive and I have to admit that I love the way this smells. It is a light earthy smell that reminds me of being outside. There is absolutely no chemical or artificial smell to it. There is a damask cotton cover on the pillow that is textured, very thick and soft. It wraps around the pillow and folds under so no zipper to worry about. It was very simple to take the cover off and put it back on. I also noticed that the seams are very well stitched. The pillow itself is soft yet firm enough to hold its shape when laid on. Perfect amount of give for toddlers or adults in my opinion! My son has been asleep for 4 hours now and usually his head is soaked in sweat but not tonight! He carried his pillow around all day and wouldn't let me borrow it.
I HIGHLY recommend this pillow to everyone whether you have allergies or not. It is perfectly made. I cannot think of one bad thing to mention and that is rare! Although this product was provided by Mother Sheep Organics for testing purposes all opinions are 100% my own. I know you will love this product if you give it a try!"

Love this little 'travel' pillow
"I like small pillows, so this is not for a toddler but for an adult and I really love it!! I don't like big pillows because I can't manipulate them like a small pillow. I have allergies too and I have had no reactions to this pillow, in fact, I'm sleeping like a baby! I had a foam travel pillow and it was awful. I loved the size but it took weeks to air out, etc etc. This pillow was so sweet right out of the bag. I have since washed the outer pillow case and made another small pillow case to cover that and it has soon become may favorite pillow. If you're an adult, trust me, you'll want this as your travel pillow and/or your everyday pillow!"
"I did a fair deal of looking around for truly natural pillows for my toddler and decided on this because wool is hypoallergenic and doesn't collect dust mites like cotton filled pillows. There is a slight earthy smell for the first couple days but it's by no means offensive or overwhelming. My daughter didn't even notice it.
We've had this pillow for at least 6 months and my daughter loves it. This pillow will definitely work for kids between 1-6 yrs old."

He says he loves the pillows and that they are comfortable. I love that he is sleeping on something ...
"I bought two of these pillows for my 2 year old, one for home and one preschool after I noticed he started using his stuffed animals as pillows. He says he loves the pillows and that they are comfortable. I love that he is sleeping on something that I know is safe for him. The pillow is the perfect size and is very high quality. The company has been very helpful with tips on using the pillow and how to keep it fresh. I have already recommended it to my friends."
I'm extremely happy with the purchase and my son has loved sleeping ...
"I did a lot of research on safe, chemical-free pillows for toddlers and ultimately selected this one. I'm extremely happy with the purchase and my son has loved sleeping on it the past two weeks. It's a great size for toddlers and has the perfect amount of fluff. It arrived a bit flat from the packaging, but I put it in the dryer for a few minutes and it was perfect. So far it has held its shape really well - there are no indent marks and it hasn't become flat at all. I'm also a big fan of the cover that comes with the pillow. It's very thick (almost quilted) and will do a great job of protecting the pillow. I'm still planning to order a separate pillowcase (the company is coming out with one in the next few months), but in the meantime, my son is perfectly content sleeping on the cover that comes with the pillow. I would also give the company an A+ for customer service. I emailed a few questions before buying the pillow and received a thorough response back within a couple of hours."
