Could this be the Best Travel Pillow NZ Has to Offer? - Made from Wool

We don't like to toot our own horn, truly. But, we've created something special and we'd love to share it with you - the Linen+Wool Travel Pillow. The last time I was on an international flight, I was stuck in an uncomfortable sleep position and a synthetic pillow that left me tired and with a sore neck. I also accidentally dropped the pillow somewhere between gates in LAX because there was no way to keep it secure. Bugger.

So, the team here at Kind Face decided to design a high-quality travel pillow that's made with care and love, using premium natural materials (such as Japara Cotton, Stonewashed Linen, and Cloud Wool). These are locally sourced from NZ suppliers. It's made by Kiwi hands in our Avondale factory, where we emphasise sustainable materials and production processes, as well as a healthy and ethical work environment.

Check out this list of features and maybe you'll agree that our Linen+Wool Travel Pillow is the best travel pillow NZ has to offer:

  • Crafted from the dreamiest wool imaginable. We get our Wool from Wisewool in Gisborne. Raw wool is carefully processed into Cloud Wool filling. It turns a pillow into a cloud - fluffy yet supportive.
  • 100% adjustable. Easily add or remove Cloud Wool as needed.
  • It's handmade, by us, in Avondale. Plus, we’re 100% NZ owned and operated.
  • Made from 100% natural materials, which promote better sleep.
  • Made with environmentally responsible materials and production processes.
  • We have a 30-Day “Rest Easy Guarantee” - return the product if you are unsatisfied for any reason.
  • It's completely washable.
  • Features a handy elastic strap. You can use this to secure the pillow to a headrest, or a travel bag's handle.
  • Smells amazing. The combination of lavender and the subtle smell of wool is a winning combo for dosing off.


When it comes to travel pillows, there are many options to choose from. However, a pillow that doesn't wrap around the neck can offer a number of benefits that make it a worthwhile consideration - especially when it's made from natural materials that help you sleep sounder and healthier.

Natural fibers like wool provide a comfortable sleeping surface free from synthetic materials or chemicals that could cause irritation and contain allergens. Additionally, a plain pillow design is straightforward and easy to use, eliminating the need for complicated attachments or adjustments. In choosing a plain natural pillow, you can enjoy the simplicity of a natural fiber without any added bells and whistles.

If you are looking at a travel pillow that wraps around the neck, we urge you to 'try before you buy'. These pillows seem like an awesome idea, but they are often not as comfy as you might imagine. Instead, you could simply order a Kind Face Linen+Wool Travel Pillow and give it a go. Send it back within 30 days if you aren't satisfied - that’s our Rest Easy Guarantee! Don’t forget - these wee legends are 100% customisable. Remove or add Cloud Wool as you please to get the perfect firmness, on the go. Our travel pillow was made with a range of travel in mind. There is a handy elastic strap in the back to attach the pillow to a plane's headrest on a long haul flight, or strap it onto a travel bag's handle - no need to squeeze it inside. (Don’t be like me and lose your trusty new best friend.)

Nature provides us with an abundance of resources that can contribute to our overall well-being. From wholesome, nutrient-rich foods to natural fibers like wool, incorporating natural products into our lives can have a significant impact on our health and happiness overall. A natural travel pillow, for example, not only offers superior comfort but also provides hypoallergenic properties and sustainable sourcing. By choosing natural products, we can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that we are taking care of ourselves and the planet.

What are some of the natural benefits of Wool?

  • Naturally insulating: Wool fibers have a natural crimp that traps air, providing excellent insulation against the cold but also keeping you from overheating.
  • Breathable: Wool fibers are naturally breathable, allowing moisture to evaporate while retaining heat, keeping you comfortable and cool in all seasons.
  • Hypoallergenic: Wool is a natural material that is hypoallergenic, making it suitable for people with allergies or sensitive skin.
  • Durable: Wool fibers are naturally elastic and can be stretched up to 30% without breaking, making wool products durable and long-lasting.
  • Moisture-wicking: Wool fibers can absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture without feeling damp, keeping you dry and comfortable.
  • Biodegradable: Wool is a natural, biodegradable material that is environmentally friendly.
  • Easy to care for: Wool products are easy to care for. Most of the time you can simply air out the wool in your pillow if it needs it, or gently wash in a basin with wool detergent and dry in the sun.
  • Renewable: Sheep grow new wool every year, making wool a renewable resource. (No animals were hurt making a Cloud Wool Pillow!)

Rest your head on linen

Linen is an amazing natural fabric and perfect for use around the delicate skin on your face. It’s naturally cool and super soft (thanks to the delicious Turkish stonewashed linen from James Dunlop Textiles!).

On those long flights you don’t want to be sleeping on synthetic microfibers that will clog your skin and heat you while you sleep.
