    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.

    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.

    Just what I needed to refill the sofa cushions. Sofa looks like new and an excellent service. Thank you.

    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.

    Great advice and excellent service. Sheep wool is the perfect filling for my floor cushions.

    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.

    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.

    Bought to top up existing wool filling in my cushions – easy ordering process, prompt delivery, it’s British, and it’s easy to use – what’s not to like?

    Wonderful product – and not at all smelly! I now have nice plump cushions that don’t collapse but support your back. Will be used for making a cat bed too.

    Really nice natural product which is easy to use and creates a bouncy, soft filling.

    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.

    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.

    (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.

    Easy to use, made firm but comfortable pillows, and overall a great product. Would and have bought again.

    I love this product. It is holding it’s shape really well in a couple of very large square sofa cushions. It’s so nice to have a moderately priced natural alternative.

    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!

    (verified owner):

    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.
