Holy Lamb Organics - Giveaway!

Around a year ago my husband did some work for the owner of Holy Lamb Organics (who also happens to now be my sister-in law!!!) and she traded him an orthopedic neck pillow in exchange for his work. I have to admit that I was a little jealousy that he received this pillow. I wanted an amazing handmade wool pillow too! But, who was I to complain? He did the work, and, also, he had some issues with waking up with his ear hurting. (Apparently his mom and brother experience the same issue.)

Orthopedic Neck Pillow
Then last winter the girls and I experienced sickness like we had never experienced it before. I began to research all the different kinds of allergies that could potentially cause our constant coughing and congestion. In my research, I learned that dust and dust mites can be a serious contributor, as can down (the pillows we were all using) and synthetic materials (our mattresses and mattress covers). I discovered that wool ranks far above all other products (including cotton and down bedding) in its ability to resist dust mites and in its ability to provide a natural sleeping surface..

Woolley Down Pillow
I was sold. (And did I mention that I have some sweet connections?) We went ahead and purchased Woolly Down Pillows and Deep Sleep Mattress Toppers for the girls and I. As much as I wish I could say that this solved all of our cough and congestion problems, it didn't. (I will have to save that discussion for another post.) But we would never go back and are so glad we invested in this quality bedding. Before the purchase, it took quite a bit to convince my husband that this was worth the cost, but now he will tell anyone who asks about how wonderful the mattress topper is. It is so amazingly soft and comfortable!

Here are some quick facts about the benefits of wool:
  • Wool resists bacteria.
  • Wool is fire resistant.
  • Wool is cool in the summer yet warm in the winter.
  • Unlike bedding that uses plucked down feathers, a sheep grows a coat of wool annually and is not harmed during shearing.
  • Wool surpasses synthetic fill in terms of quality and durability.
  • Unlike down bedding which shifts over time (ie. bare spots in a comforter), wool stays in place.
  • Wool is a sustainable product helping small farmers make a living.
  • With proper care, woolen bedding can last for decades.

  1. I'm a follower. If I won, I would give the pillow to Kevin to try since he often wakes up with a sore neck. I wonder if it would help...

  2. I"m really glad you posted this: I was already thinking about replacing Aidan's pillows and mattress topper! His dust allergies would definitely benefit from the pillow!

  3. I would LOVE to have the HOLY LAMB ORGANICS pillow!

  4. I have dust allergies, too, and they've been significantly reduced by getting an organic mattress & pillow dust mite covers that zip all the way around all sides of the mattresses and pillows. And I also wash my sheets almost weekly, and my covers & bedspreads multiple times a year. I'm researching pillows and mattresses right now, so maybe I'll give these ones a try.

  5. Okay Tanya, I have joined your blog followers. The Holy Lamb Organics pillow looks so very comfortable. Love so many aspects of wool...

  6. i'm already a follower - can i still enter? :)
