Filling 12" x 12" 14" x 14" 16" x 16" 18" x 18" 20" x 20"
1kg 9 5.5 4 2.5 2

Above is a simple table to help guide you in how much filling you might need by using a standard weight for cushion pads. Put simply it shows you the amount of filling and the size of the pad in inches, it then show a guide of how many pads of that size you could fill with that amount of filling.

Remember that each filling has its own fill power and fibre will go further than say pure down.

    Super British product. Bought 2 kilos to replace polyester – filled cushion inserts and to make a pillow to my own density. The health qualities of wool encouraged me to buy another 2 kilos to complete the job!! 5 star rating well deserved.

    I’m really pleased with the wool filling for two sofa cushions, it gives good firmness and resilience. Easy to order, well packaged and arrived on time.

    Very good product, clean and with good buoancy, filled sofa back cushions extremely well. It arrived very well packaged and was on time.
    Ordering was also very convenient.

    Great ! Very pleased with quality of stuffing and with speed of delivery. I used the wool for stuffing a knitted nativity set & it’s gone much further than I expected – perhaps I should knit another one (or two, or three….)

    Excellent product. Good value compared to other sellers. I Used to fill a large pouffe which is perfectly firm and comfortable

    Fabulous quality product – bought 1 kilo to fill 3 new cushion pads (approx 30 x 30 cm). Very soft and gently smelling of lanolin. Will definitely order again. Only slight negative was with shipping – no dispatch notice sent so I was in the dark about when my order was sent/would arrive. The delivery company is Hermes, who were slow (package was with them 5 days before it went out for delivery), but when I contacted Cushion Warehouse directly they very quickly gave me an update on the delivery status.

    Bought a kilo to replace the stuffing in a restored 1940’s teddy as I wanted a natural filling in keeping with his age. The wool is easy to work with, pleasant to handle, and did not fly around everywhere or stick to the teddy’s fur. It has given him back his shape again, firmly filled and yet soft to hold. With what is left I plan to make and fill two lap trays – much more pleasant than the poly beads with which commercial ones are filled.
    Delivery was quick, and although I was taken aback by the size of the box it came in at first, I’m pleased the wool hadn’t been squashed down to fit something smaller as it was wonderfully light and fluffy to use. I’m very satisfied with what is a great product.

    I bought 12kg as I wasn’t sure how much I needed and this was the minimum order to get free postage. More than I expected! Two larges cartons very tightly packed. Fabulous stuff. Have made 5 cushions 60 x 60cm, 2 cushions 40 x 40cm, 5 pillows and a padded backing for a 180 cm hanging cushion above a built-in seating area. I have only used 10kg so will use the rest to replace the old feather pads in some of my other cushions. The wool is lovely to work with and great value for money.

    I bought some of this stuff on a whim, I was searching for something to fill a dog bed with and liked the idea of a natural and British product. In the end I opted for different product (cluster fibre filling) as the wash temp is only 30? and that’s not hot enough for a dog bed. It is lovely, soft and cosy. It does have that sheepy smell but only mildly and then I washed some to see what happened. The smell was reduced and personally I don’t mind the smell anyway and if anything it became even more soft and fluffy. If you do try it and wash it don’t do what I foolishly did and pop some in a lingerie washing bag into the machine (to contain it) as the bulk of it remained in the bag but a certain amount of fibre filtered it’s way out and I had to vacuum out the interior of the washing machine (once it had dried off) and the tumble dryer. I’m going to try a previous reviewer’s idea and make a floor cushion to rest my feet on and keep them warm in winter, feather proof liner I think!

    Wow, this wool filling is lovely. Just filled a pouffe and a large floor cushion with it, and both look and feel great and of course is totally natural. I emailed before placing my order to ask for advice as to how much I would need, had a reply straight away, and the amount was exactly right. On top of that, I opted to pick up the wool from the workshop in East Sussex which is near me saving on postage. I will definitely buy more in the future when I need it.

    Thank you Cushion Warehouse. Your product of wool filling, has been an excellent
    alternative, for my eco conscious customer.
    The cushions look fabulous, not at all lumpy. ( I thought they might have been)
    I will happily recommend you to any one needing wool filling.
    Also your customer care was second to none! You kept me up to date on delivery
    by phone and iPad.
    I cannot fault you.

    I didn’t expect it to take so long to be delivered as it wasn’t free delivery The package was dispatched quickly by the seller but My Hermes took a few days to deliver !!! However that aside I am delighted with the product Thank you Recommend this seller to all

    I am going to make a floor cushion for my feet because if my feet and ankles get cold my legs ache this wool filling will be perfect to sink my feet into for warmth without being trapped in slippers or socks Perfect I personally thought Hermes took a while to deliver especially as it isn’t a free delivery The parcel arrived yesterday. It hasn’t put me off returning for more though Thank you

    Excellence product. Used it to stuff a small leather pouffe. Would buy again for upholstery or toy making. Rather slow delivery.

    Product: Filled my bedroom pillows perfectly, and converted my other half to only wool pillows only from now on. Very happy.

    Shipping: slight delay but not ridiculously long.

    Packaging: a water proof plastic packaging, unfortunately the inner black bag had such a toxic plastic smell, I had to air the wool out for 2 day to help remove its smell. This is the only reason it’s not a five star product.

    Would buy again.

    This is lovely stuff. Soft, springy, and we think it smells great! We bought it to fill cushions, but I’m so tempted to make a pillow. And very happy indeed to be able to buy a British product. Only thing I don’t understand is why more people aren’t using this? Highly recommended.

    Lovely and soft and British. It was perfect for reupholstering my settee and filled the gaps the cats had shredded.

    (verified owner):

    I used to make top half of two pillows (bottom half = latex – all wool I found too hard, all latex too sweaty, combination = just right!) We already had a wool pillow from another supplier. This wool from cushionwarehouse is not as ‘refined’ – it is clean but stil contains flecks of vegetation, far too small to be aware of in use. However this wool, at less than a quarter of the price of the other, is much better value, and I honestly can’t tell the difference in use. I could not detect any particular smell from the wool. I have been using the pillows for a couple of months now and am very pleased with them. I am seriously considering making a duvet with more of this – would be much much cheaper than buying one ready made! Very happy to recommend this product.

    Excellent service and product. I used the filling to top us the rectangular cushion pads I bought together. It is now two weeks I have been using the wool filled pillows and My husband and I are waking up without neck pain. The first time I thought I filled the pillow a lot as if I put my head onto a rock BUT I just fall asleep and did not wake up to a neck pain and My husband stopped snoring. The gentle giant looks like a rock but in fact is softer than anything you can call a soft material you sleep on. I have made a pillow with the filling and gave to my 86 years old Mum. She is very contented. The bottom line is since we have started to use the wool fillings as pillows three of us felt very assured of contentment comfort secure and safe enough that we will wake up happy and contented. We have been wake up to the feeling that as if someone is hugging us throughout of the night making sure we feel safe and well looked after! It is ever so easy to use the filling to make up whatever you like. There is no odor whatsoever. we slept on the pillows I filled the same day the filling arrived. Thank you.

    I have a batwing pillow, in the shape of a bat’s wing and designed for people who like to read sitting up in bed. The problem was the materials, both pillow and pillowcase were made of polyester. I had pillowcases and a pillow cover made locally in pure cotton, but needed a pure wool filling. The wool filling is softer and will be essential in the warm summer months. I am delighted with the result.

    Very pleased with this BRITISH wool. We have made two comfortable but firm pillows, will be ordering more of this natural product to fill cushions in the future. PS we do like the smell of lanolin.

    Lovely and surprisingly soft wool. Comes in a big reinforced plastic bag, excellently packed. Was more than enough for my bedroom pillow – I bought 1 kilo and could easily make 3 low pillows from the amount of wool purchased. Didn’t really notice/wasn’t at all bothered by the ‘smell’? Will also use for cat bedding and lounge pillows. Didn’t create any fluff. Very happy with product.

    I’m very pleased with this product. I was looking for creating my own pillow with nature filling, as everything ready made was just not working for me. The product provided is exactly what was expected and is doing a great job. Thank you team.

  31. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    Absolutely delighted. I have a neck problem and have spent a fortune on expensive pillows, which have been a waste of money. They have been fine for a few months and then rubbish, no support at all. It was for this reason I decided to make my own pillow, I ordered 3kilos of wool, I knew that was more than I needed but I thought I could stuff the cushions with the left over. I made my pillow using an old pillow case and gradually stuffed it until it was the right height and firmness, I have never slept so well in years. Yes there is a slight odour but it isn’t offensive, if the smell does put you off spray the second pillow case with lavender. Great stuff.

    The wool fill has made lovely plump springy sofa seat cushions. It’s very easy to use and initial smell is like soap but once filled undetectable. I would definitely use it again as an alternative to foam/feathers.

    (verified owner):

    Fast delivery of this excellent product. Very easy to use and it does a great job filling cushions. A wonderful smell of wool (definitely not sheep) as one review said and I will certainly use it again.

  39. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    Great product. Had a good laugh at the previous review about the smell of sheep. The smell is in fact lanolin, which fades over time. We’ve been making cushions out of this for over a year, which have been sold at some of London’s major department stores- so I disagree that customers wouldn’t like it. Excellent wool.

    I have purchased this to fill toys. It works well and is far nicer to use than polyester filling… and it goes a long way.

    Lovely and soft for filling but stinks of sheep. I like sheep but my clients would not for sure. So no good at all.

    I’m Really pleased that I found and brought this lovely soft sheep wool, I made a nursing pillow for my new grandson and felt so much happier that he would be resting on such a lovely natural and safe filling than a man made filling. The Wool arrived quickly and well packaged thank you to the company I will defiantly purchase it again for other projects.

    I am pleased with this product [ and also the micro cluster mixture] I had at the same time for my cushions and upholstery projects.

    Initial bounce back very promising ; we will see how the product wears over time, but a 1000% better than the sad old cushions and saggy seats were, with a little effort and time .

    Delivery was quicker than expected

    The sheep’s wool is beautiful. Its more than I expected. Will definitely be using more of it. Used to make neck cushions that are of a peculiar shape but the sheep’s wool has gone into all the little nooks and crannies brilliantly.

    What can I say……it’s lovely, just what I was looking for. I used it to fill the heads of some Hobby horses I made for my children, dolls and other craft products also used it to replace the filling in my office chair…..only downside, I can’t get my son out of my office chair!
    I’m a bit spoilt now as I don’t want to use any other product. Love it, Love it, Love it!!!

    I was very pleased when I received this, the wool is lovely to handle, very soft but packs together very well and looks like it will keep its shape. I used it to fill a sheepskin pouffe and it is very comfortable firm but in a soft way and it feels right that there is wool in a sheepskin pouffe!

    bought it as a test to refill some very old sofa cushions, and love it. Easy to work with and not as messy as I had expected! Nice and firm, and holds its shape well. I will definitely buy some for my next project.

    Very pleased. I used this to fill a floor cushion and it is wonderful. The cushion was french mattress style so the goal was a somewhat firm/packed cushion. The wool worked great and I was so happy to find something natural to use.

    Was looking for a natural filling to replace the polyester in my current cushions and am very pleased to say they’re now filled with wool and I’m very happy.
