Baby Merino Wool Pillow
”My First Pillow”, or Valeria Home Baby Pillow, is specially designed for babies aged 6 months to 3 years.
It offers a unique combination of low height and fluffiness. The pillow has a unique contour designed to provide optimal support for the head.
It reaches the optimal density after approximately one month of use. Our wool pillow is ideal for the baby's first pillow, thanks to its temperature-regulating properties, hypoallergenic nature, and anti-dust mite characteristic.
Standard size: 50 x 30 cm.
Filling: Pure Merino wool
Exterior: 100% Organic Batiste fiber proof cotton, 110g/m2.
Why is wool suitable for babies?
Hypoallergenic: Wool is naturally hypoallergenic and can help protect babies from dust mites, mold, and other allergens that can trigger allergies or asthma.
Temperature regulation: Wool fibres are excellent at regulating body temperature, which can help keep babies comfortable, warm in winter and cool in summer.
Moisture absorption: Wool absorbs moisture, which can help keep babies dry and comfortable throughout the night.
Durable: Wool pillows maintain their initial characteristics for a longer time.
TERPESHIELD anti-moth treatment
We have replaced the chemical dust mite treatment with Terpeshield, a natural mixture of pure essential oils that ensure protection and aromatherapy. Geraniol and Linalool are natural terpenes found in pure essential oils obtained from plants by steam distillation.
Anti-insecticide and anti-fungal role of Terpeshield:
- Removes the moths and their larvae from the clean natural wool
- Drives insects and dust mites away - Prevents the appearance of fungi and mold
- Neutralizes bad odors
The Terpeshield aromatherapy:
- Diminishes stress and increases focus and alertness
- Takes away muscle pain, migraine, indigestion, and inflammation
- Extremely efficient against insomnia, anxiety, and palpitations
The Geraniol and Linalool can be found in fruits, vegetables, spices, or plants such as geranium, lemongrass, lily of the valley, lavender, etc. The washing tests carried out in the lab showed that no active residues were found in the washing water or the rinsing water with which the textile products are Terpeshield treated with.
The Terpeshield wool treatment does not contain phthalates, permethrins (usually known as Nix), endocrine disruptors, or other insecticides or chemical pesticides. Moreover, the treatment process does not consume thermal energy.
The multi-layer structure
We are using bates of wool that are wave-shaped and multi-layer arranged. This way, we can prevent overcrowding or the migration of the wool inside the product.
For the pillows, we are using the same method, arranging the wool not to migrate inside the pillow, preventing the overcrowding of the wool in time.
Fiber-proof cotton fabric
The oxygen-bleached organic cotton fabric means fewer allergies
The organic cotton fabric is not coated (no polymer layer is applied) to prevent the migration of the fibers or feathers used for the manufacturing of the traditional pillows. The organic cotton fabric we are using prevents the wool fibers to migrate inside the fabric (dense fabric made out of very fine yarns). Moreover, mechanical processes are also prevented. The lack of this coating enables the air and moisture flow, significantly minimizing perspiration.
- Non-allergic and anti-mites
- Naturally insulating material
- High in air-permeability
- Helps regulate body temperature, achieving a peaceful, good night's sleep through the night, in all seasons
Caring for your wool pillow:
Our Valeria Home Merino Wool Collection is entirely natural, so shouldn't need cleaning often (simply airing it out can do the world of good). When the weather is appropriate, expose the products to sunlight to wick away the natural moisture that appeared overnight. Furthermore, it should be taken into account that UV light is a high-power disinfectant.
We would recommend spot cleaning only. Do not tumble dry. Use the pillow only with a pillow cover.
Lanolin- the wool’s scent
The merino wool that we use for our Valeria Home products is a pure natural ecological wool, 100% pure. Our wool is obtained from sheep that are raised with no antibiotics, hormones, or other chemical treatments. For the cleaning and washing process, we have replaced the usual detergents with ecological ones to prevent vegetation, dust, and excess fat. The result confines in a noble, clean wool that does not have its characteristic pungent odor.
We do not clean the wool by soaking it in sulfuric acid to remove the vegetable matter from the wool. Usually, this sulfuric-acid bath removes the lanolin, the substance responsible for the therapeutic benefits of the wool.
In our cleaning process, the vegetable matter that remains in the wool is removed once again using a special mechanic technology for combing the wool.
The wool we are using in our Valeria Home products has lanolin in the fibers. Lanolin has its characteristic odor, ”wool smell”, which in time fades (during the first weeks). The smell of the lanolin represents a certainty of the therapeutic benefits of the products made out of wool.
We do recommend the ventilation of the products 24-48 hours before the first use, in sunlight.
