These packs are perfect for adding Cloud Wooll fill to your Kind Face pillows and cushion inners... or your own creations!
Finally an environmentally responsible loose fill, that performs.
We only use the best materials sourced through specialist NZ businesses.
The loose Cloud Wool packs are made from these local and imported materials:
- NZ grown and refined 'Cloud' wool
- Cardboard carton & recyclable and / or compostable labelling
DO NOT machine wash the Cloud Wool.
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.’’
As an indicator - our standard size pillows have 1.1kg of Cloud Wool inside.
Features and benefits
The high keratin and moisture content of wool makes it naturally fire resistant, offering safety and peace of mind without the need for harmful chemicals.
Wool’s naturally occurring proteins and microscopic pores attract and absorb water vapour. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, so sleepers are kept comfortable, not clammy.
Wool fibres are covered in scales that trap dust, mould spores and other harmful allergens, removing them from the air and preventing them from being inhaled.
The NZ 'Cloud' wool comes from Wisewool in Gisborne, where both the sheep and the environment are happy and healthy. Every pillow is hand-stitched and filled in our workroom in Avondale,
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 raw fibre through to the luxurious Cloud fill. This includes innovative mechanical engineering which enhances the resilience and bounce 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.

Keeping it simple, with nothing to hide
We pack the loose wool filling in cartons without liners or plastic packaging. It doesn't feel right to pack something so pure and natural into something that is not. We trust you agree.
We encourage you to use the pure wool fill within your own creations. Any shift from imported synthetic fibres and / or feathers has got to be good for New Zealand. Enjoy.
I have made myself and my partner a pillow each with your lovely Loose Cloud Wool and we have been enjoying the comfort of it, and the nice sheepy smell!
Awesome product! An awesome wool pillow filler. Takes a couple of weeks to settle to get the right fill. It is quite dusty to work with so best to use it in a ventilated area with a mask
Thank you for your feedback (and purchase) Jonathan. You are right in saying the Wisewool Cloud wool is an awesome product, and you have also witnessed first hand how good wool is at holding on to dust and not releasing it into the local environment - unless you give it a good shake. The dust you refer too is created during the process of taking raw strong wool fibres through the specialist machinery to form the 'Clouds' - this happens at the Wisewool plant, near Matamata.
We are testing different processes and steps to try and remove the dust before it reaches our customers, but haven't found the right solution yet .
Being able to buy the loose cloud refill was perfect for being able to put into my existing pillow that has a zip & swapping out the inside fill was easy. Also means you can put in as much or as little as you like.
It does smell a bit sheepy to begin with but that fades in time & it's not too bad.
