Organic Wool Doonas and Pillows
Why choose an Organic doona?:
We spend 1/3 of our life in bed. Why not make this a comfortable and healthy experience? Most major retailers use synthetic fibres and plastics, unlike our 100% natural organic wool filling and 100% GOTS certified organic cotton casings.
Why Organic wool isn't washable:
Washable wool is made by exposing the fiber to a chlorine that erodes the scales in the wool and then it is treated with a sort of plastic, a polymer resin called Hercosett 125. While the chemicals that comprise this polymer are themselves highly toxic, this does not mean that the polymer itself is toxic. However, it is hard to find any information on the safety of Hercosett-treated wool. Since washable wool is coated with plastic, it can’t be considered 100% natural fiber.
Organic cot wool-doonas: A baby is even more sensitive than you are to the effects of chemicals in their environment, through their delicate, thin skin, and their brand new respiratory system. Especially for babies, choosing organic bedding is an investment in the health of your baby. Cot doonas are summer only
Choose between Summer or Winter
Wool breaths so you can have a thicker doona than you need. If your bedroom is heated or you live in a more temperate climate then you could use a summer doona all year round.
Summer doona is 400gsm
Winter doona is a double layer so 800gsm
