woolen pillowcase

this item is a pillowcase that can be used with the bedsheet or alone as a decoration cushion. the bedsheets are a cosy mix of waxed cotton and our lovely eco-merino wool. you can just imagine the feeling the baby gets when it is cuddled in the pram on a cold winter morning with the eco-wool next to their skin. and yes, they will sleep like a baby. "bembil" is the faroese word for baby and as in the rest of scandinavia babies will nap in their prams outside the houses from they are only a few days old. i was told that as long as it was not less than minus 10 degrees they were fine napping outside.

Composition: 100% eco-wool

style no. 13042

100% organic wool on one side and 100% waxed cotton on the other side.

washing instructions

There is an old saying in the Faroe Islands: “Wool is the gold of the Faroe Islands”. Faroese wool has a rich texture and is naturally rich in lanolin, which makes it water resistant. The richness of lanolin also makes it dirt resistant. The wool we use has not been chemically treated.

Additionally to being exceptionally warm and comfortable, wool also has the unique quality of being able to contain up to 35% water without feeling wet.

One notable feature of the Faroese sheep is the variety of natural colors: white or cream, black, brown and a variety of grey colors.
