Still not made up your mind? Our pillow buying guide continues below with some extra tips for finding the perfect pillow.

What is the best cooling pillow for night sweats?

Wool makes for the perfect cooling pillow for night sweats. With the Woolroom range of organic, natural wool pillows, you can expect a breathable material that not only reduces overheating, but draws excess moisture away from your face and neck.

What is the best pillow for allergies?

Nobody likes irritating allergies coming to the surface late at night. But what is the best pillow for allergies and alleviating the symptoms? Our entire range of wool pillows is made from 100% British wool, so is hypoallergenic, having been stamped with the seal of approval from Allergy UK.

With our hypoallergenic pillows, the natural wool filling is effective at repelling dust mites and fungal spores, leaving you with an allergy eased sleep, night after night. You can learn more about choosing the best bedding for allergies in our Sleep Health & Advice hub.

Which pillow is good for health?

Helping our customers to achieve healthy sleep is a priority for us. That’s why everything in our collection puts your health first. From the natural organic properties of the wool fibers, to the breathable temperature control that wool offers, our entire collection of bedding is built to enhance your sleeping environment. What’s more, sleeping with wool bedding can help you to gain up to 25% more deep regenerative sleep – allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and well-rested every morning.

What is the best type of pillow for my sleeping position?

The best type of pillow for you depends on your sleeping position. This will tell you what level of firmness to opt for when deciding on a pillow. If you sleep on your side, you’ll find that a firmer pillow should offer the right level of support for you. If you’re a back sleeper, you’ll find that a pillow with a little less firmness works better. Or if you sleep on your front, you can get away with a much softer pillow. For most of us, a standard size rectangular pillow does the job. For that added luxury and comfort, our pillows are all available in Queen and King size. Or, for a pillow that offers a giant hug, why not take a look at our Deluxe V-Shaped Pillow?
