DONATE "New Zealand's Pillow"
There are people in our communities who don't have a pillow of their own, and with your support we can change this.
If you are in a position to donate $50 your generosity will enable us to make and deliver our Cloud Wool "New Zealand's Pillow" to the Kindness Collective, who will take care of ensuring it finds a deserving home.
Customers can also 'pay-it-forward' with $2 donations through the GoGenerosity tool in the Kind Face shopping cart. These donations add up over time and convert into donated pillows - 1 out of 5 customers chose to 'pay-it-forward' in August 2023 - we honestly have the greatest customers in NZ!
Sarah from Kindness Collective says "we're thrilled to be able to distribute quality, NZ-made pillows to families we support in need of a restful sleep."
With the support of our suppliers like Wisewool, and our wonderful workroom team volunteering hours to help cut + sew and friends and family helping to fill and pack the pillows we are able to limit the donation cost to $50 (rrp is $179)
We only use the best materials sourced through specialist NZ businesses.
The Cloud Wool Pillows are handcrafted from these local and imported materials:
- Japara cotton
- NZ farmed and refined 'Cloud' wool
- YKK invisible zip
- Spun polyester thread
- Recycled polyester ribbon label
- Calico cotton - drawstring bag
DO NOT machine wash the Cloud Wool Pillow.
We recommend removing the wool fill and washing the pillow casing as you would with any other white, cotton laundry. Washing in cold water will ensure no shrinkage.
Whilst the wool is out of the cover, take advantage of letting it breathe and catching some sun. Wool loves the sun as much as it loves the fresh NZ air. The rays will naturally deodorize, disinfect, and renew your bedding.
Alternatively, you can hand wash them in warm water with a wool detergent and let them drip dry.
You might notice a slight scent. It is actually proof the natural 'Cloud' wool is as pure as possible, and this will air out in time or sooner if you remove the fill and allow to breathe in the sunlight.
During product testing, we thought this feedback summed up the scent nicely "faint smell of a clean, healthy, warm barn... making for a healthy and loving feel to it.’’
Use the included lavender pack if desired.
Kind Face™ products might have small imperfections due to the nature of being 100% handmade.
Firmness guide: Medium to Firm. Remember, you can easily adjust the comfort level by removing or adding wool fill. Give the pillow a good shake and fluff up to rebalance the fill.
Standard = Suitable for Single through to Queen bed sizes.

We have to hand it to the sheep; they take care of the heavy lifting when it comes to sustainability. Their fleece regrows after shearing, making Wisewool a 100% natural and renewable resource.
When compared to synthetic fabrics, wool always comes out on top as it doesn’t shed microplastics.
Furthermore, wool is biodegradable and contains renewable atmospheric carbon. So when it finally is returned to the earth, it fertilises and oxygenates the ground by releasing valuable restorative nutrients into the soil.
Features and benefits
Your generosity has many layers - you are supporting small businesses, NZ manufacturing and specialist suppliers too!
We hope it helps you sleep well knowing your gift of a pillow will help someone in need of better sleep!
100% natural, super supportive, temperature regulating, hypoallergenic and anitmicrobial... and it comes from the Tairāwhiti Gisborne region!
We believe in evolution, not more pollution
The ‘Evolution’ in our wool pillows is thanks to the legends at Wisewool in Gisborne.
They are responsible for taking their beautiful Tairāwhiti sourced wool from a premium graded raw fibre through to the luxurious Cloud fill. This includes mechanical engineering for compression resilience, support and comfort - whilst protecting the natural fibre's unique, organic state.
You can see the process for yourself on the Wisewool website - from where the wool starts in a shearing shed through to arriving at our workroom.
