An excellent pillow for allergy sufferers as latex is hypoallergenic, hygienic and antibacterial, dust mite, mould and mildew resistant without any added chemicals. This pillow comes with a removable/washable (cool water) certified organic cotton cover. Please note, the latex insert is non washable. Handcrafted in our own Sydney workshop. The wool we work with is Australian Downs wool and is natural and untreated, while the duck down we use is certified to the Responsible Down Standard. Please keep in mind as with any new pillow it may take a week or so to adjust.
