“This is a great solution for comfortable sleep! I can’t recommend it enough. If you sleep warm it will keep you cool, but if you sleep cool it will keep you warm. It’s easy to pack up and move, and even easier to care for. Well made. It will last!”

“My husband and I absolutely LOVE this mattress. It is nice and firm but still soft enough to be very comfortable. The best investment ever! Worth every penny. We also like that you can roll it up, we have King size one so if you are moving it would be much easier to move it.”

“Excellent products. Great value when you compare to other similar items (hand made in the US, local/natural/organic material. etc). I've had my wool bed for nearly a decade & will never switch back to a normal mattress.”

“I have purchased a King bed frame, latex for the slats, a wool mattress and two snuggle mates, that was 10 years ago and I still love my bed very much. not too soft, not too hard just perfect for a great night sleep or just laying on it watching TV. The two snuggle mates needed a new cover after a few years, I shipped them to Shepherd's Dream and they were very helpful putting on new covers. Best investment I’ve ever made. Best bed I have ever slept and played in……”

“Wonderful products ALL !!! (Except those pillows…tooooo hard!!!) Mattresses, toppers, mattress protectors…fabulous!!! Never disappointed. Have been customer for years!!! Visitors love sleeping here! Top your McRoskey mattress with a 3″ topper—you may never leave home again!!!”

“We finally took the plunge this year and bought the 5″ mattress to replace an organic latex mattress that had “cratered” (that was an expensive mistake). The quality of the construction on this mattress is just fantastic! And it is quite heavy — make sure you have some help to get it onto your bed! It’s very, very firm, which is what we were looking, but we found that it works best for us paired with the latex strips and the wool topper. Without the latex strips, we can feel the wood slats of our bed through the mattress. With the strips, it’s perfect! I love the modularity of this system — you can swap out layers until you get to ‘just right.”

Home and Gardening

“I’m giving this 4 stars because this mattress really does require a different understanding of how a bed goes together than most people in the US have. It’s part of a SYSTEM, the bed is like a layer cake, not a single, encased solution like a Serta you might buy elsewhere. I’ll be honest and say I didn’t QUITE get this when it first arrived. Alone, on the slats, this bed is much too firm for me (and probably MOST people.) But, this mattress really isn’t the only layer on the bed, nor should it be. We started out with the recommended layers — good wooden slats, 5″ mattress, Snuggle Mate. This was snugly, but did not have quite enough depth and we were bottoming out (the Snuggle Mate doesn’t really add depth to sink into). We put our old foam mattress underneath the mattress and the Snuggle Mate. That was better, but too squashy. Took off the Snuggle Mate. Just right. In the future, when I find myself with some extra change, I’d like to replace the foam layer with a second wool bed — the 4 inch I think. As part of a modular system, this is an EXCELLENT layer, well made, comfortable and stink-free. But it’s not a whole solution, straight out of the box. Be prepared to fiddle. Once you get it right, it is really, really worth the effort and patience.”

“In the spirit of Goldilocks I tried many options for a ‘green’ sleep system. I love my new wool pillows, comforter, topper and mattress. I could feel the slats from the wood frame through the 5″ mattress so I added 3″ of latex on the slats. Now my bed is cozy, cuddly and just right !!!”

“My mattress and bedding are nearly 2 years old now and it is wonderful. My mattress, Snuggle Mate, and latex slats offer a firm but very cuddly nights sleep. The wool bed is always the right temperature, and my arms and legs don’t go numb while I sleep. I love that I can take the bed layers apart to sun them and refresh them. Thank you, Shepherd’s Dream, for making my beautiful bed! Well worth the investment.”

“I’ve had my mattress a year now and I still love it! I bought two 5: mattresses and use a mattress topper and find this comfortable. A good night’s sleep every night.”

“Incredibly well made…unparalleled comfort…worth every penny…you will wake up feeling refreshed every morning! i use it with a 3 inch latex mattress, topped by the incredible Snuggle Mate, and organic wool mattress protector…and wool pillows of course!…best sleep system ever….this is the best investment in your health and well being that you can make……”

“I am now buying my 3rd medicine felt. I prefer to sleep on a hard surface with only 1 to 1.5 inches of cushioning to protect my skeleton and muscles from getting sore. But I was having trouble finding the right material that would give the right amount of support. These felts are perfect! They’re warm without causing me to overheat. They’re soft enough to feel comfortable without making my back sore. I love them a lot!The thickness of each felt really does vary, so don’t expect industrial standards. You don’t need them because these felts are AMAZING!!”

“This was nice to begin with, but it does compress, and the compression is uneven, mostly in the middle, leaving a dip in the bed. I think it might be a better product if it were pre-compressed mechanically and evenly.”

“I used to say quiet little mantras to go to sleep. And they are all very helpful. But, as I add one layer at a time of medicine felt to my bedroll – the ‘mantra’ has become – i love my bed. i love my bed. I love my bed. The deep medicinal purposes of these wool felts cannot be over-expressed. Truly healing. Quiet and supporting.”

“The kids are sleeping better and longer hours! We got Heartfelt Wool Medicine Felts for each of my kids’ beds a couple of months ago. Since then my 5 year old son and 7 year old daughter have slept deeper (wake up less in the night) and sleep in longer than before. Especially my son loves how cozy it feels and will lay in bed day dreaming in the mornings until we snuggle him out of bed! My daughter said her bed feels like ‘a warm hug that wraps her up at night.’ The felts are really affordable and once the kids grow out of their beds we can use the felts for the couch or picnic-ing etc. Thank you Shepherd’s Dream!”

“We purchased a 3 inch bed topper, comforter, blanket and sheets from your Ashland store last Saturday. I was diagnosed with Lupus and RA in 2004 and had spent a lot of money buying various bedding, to help with fevers during the nights. I had not slept more than 3-6 hours for 11 years. The topper is amazing. It indeed helps with fluctuating body temperature and is so soft. The comforter allows me to sleep without tossing off the covers and then waking up to pull them back over me when I am so cold. No more ice packs and heating pads and the best part is I have slept 7-8 hours straight since we purchased our items. I am finally dreaming again which means I am getting REM sleep. My husband will be purchasing pillows today at your store in Northern California. I am shafting this with friends and family. What an amazing product line.”

“Love the snuggle mate! We have been using it on our king bed for 4 years and feels good as new. It’s named perfectly because when you crawl into bed you truly feel that you are snuggling in… It adds that extra warmth and comfort without compromising the feel of the mattress underneath. Feels cool in summer. We also have one for our baby bassinet (custom made) and child’s queen bed and have bought one as a gift for our nanny. Quality design and materials. Also LOVE the body pillow- it is a perfect shape for side sleeping or propping up your body for reading. I recommend these wool products to my patients for healthy body positioning and deeper sleep. You also must try the wool medicine felt- great for under your yoga mat or sleeping bag or on your couch- very versatile, beautiful and travels well.”

Home and Gardening

“Incredible comfort…wonderfully crafted…the snuggle mate is an amazing product…it cradles you like a baby…the wool just has this positive energy…it really makes your body feel good…relaxed…will never sleep w/o one again!”

“With 3 bulging cervical discs I found not only relief with my neck roll, but I also seem to hold my chiropractic adjustments better. It’s great for travel too!”

“I find this pillow to be very versatile because of its size and shape. I use it to tuck in under my chest when sleeping on my stomach. Also great for neck support when dozing in a recliner. For the little ones, its shape makes it the perfect teddy bear–my 3 year old calls it her snuggle.”

“I love being able to choose the fill (height) of a pillow. I am thin and the 18 oz is perfect for me.”

“I can't believe these are not reviewed more. Shepherd's Dream products are the ultimate representation of what all small businesses should strive for.

  • Their products are top notch- they cost a little more, but you can see why once you use them. No corners are cut nor is quality compromised in any way.

  • All of their products are produced with eco consciousness in mind. If it's not organic, it is from a clean source, etc. Very mindful company.

  • Their CS is top notch and very helpful. Anyone you get on the phone is very helpful and in the loop. These folks are pros at what they do.

As for these pillows in particular, although worth every penny you'd spend here, you may want to try their website first; they have sales from time to time which will really save you a few bucks in the long run (the savings really start to stack up if you need more than one pillow). I've tried all of the pillows they offer and I would recommend the thinnest 18 oz for proper alignment. Some folks insist on a pillow with more loft. If you want this, a pillow the size of a 'standard' pillow, you want the 23 or longer 28oz.

Their mattresses are a dream as well. Although the futon shop has a wool mattress that is decent for the price, Shepherd's Dream blows them away in quality.”

Home and Gardening

“I wanted to buy a pillow filled with a natural material, as I am attempting to get plastics (such as poly-filled pillows) out of my life. This pillow is excellent. I am glad I bought the customizable pillow because I found that I needed to remove some of the wool to get comfortable with it. Now I sleep wonderfully with this under my head. I thought that maybe the wool would make me too warm during the night, but I’ve had no problems with temperature regulation. The pillow is well constructed with high quality materials. Overall I am very pleased with it.”

Home and Gardening

“The comfort of all natural wool and its many benefits for health and nature are what makes it easy for me to choose theses pillows. Shepherd's Dream folks are wonderful people who give a lot of attention to the care and quality of their products. It's like having someone in your family make a very special gift just for you. What a nice way to feel when you hit the wool at the end of your day for a good night's sleep! I have been purchasing these hand crafted wool bedding items for many years from Shepherd's Dream and will continue to do so!”

“This pillow does not work for someone with a small neck. It is too big and puts most of the pressure at the base of my skull. I was hoping for a shape similar to the McKenzie Cervical Roll Neck.”

Home and Gardening

“These pillows are crafted and I just love them! No more waking up with stuffed sinuses, with the non-allergen wool batting. No more stiff neck, with the customizable fill option. And they last a long time, given proper care. I would highly recommend these pillows.”

Home and Gardening

“This pillow does not work well for me. I even brought it to my chiropractor for evaluation. It is OK when I am on my back but it is not high enough when I sleep on my side to provide the neck support I seem to require. I don’t like to sleep on my back due to sleep apnea issues. Very disappointed. I am probably going to have to purchase a wool pillow to go under it or purchase the wool neck roll. Not sure what to do at this point. Other than that, I have had no sensitivity issues with the pillow and don’t wake up with a sweaty head like some people I know.”

Home and Gardening

“Since I have had this pillow my tension headaches have mostly disappeared. Having the neck support while I sleep has helped me to feel wonderful every day. I also love the material because it feels heavenly to sleep on. I would most definitely recommend this to friends or anybody with neck issue and/or tension headaches.”

“So, I moved and did not bring my ok-but-not-great bed with me. Since then, I’ve tried so many things, and am getting burned out. Wool is supposed to be great, yadda, yadda, and it sounded a little too good to be true. But sometimes you have to take a leap of faith. I decided to test drive some pillows to see if wool was the thing for me. I did not expect a pillow to make a gigantic difference, but I was hopeful I’d see some improvement. Oh wow. Oh big wow. Despite my cheaptastic Ikea mattress padded up with a few quilts, I slept incredibly well. I conked out faster than usual and for the first time in months had long REM. It was glorious, and I woke up feeling so much better. It’s almost unbelievable, but it’s actually happening. The Snuggle Mate is going to be my next purchase, and it’s going to be soon.”

“We love these pillows! I bought two Queen 35 oz. pillows, and was worried that they might be too thick, but they compressed to just the right thickness after a bit of use. They are nice and supportive, without the “pushback” feeling that you get from synthetic filled or foam pillows. Thank you for offering the Queen size — not always easy to find.”

“Just received it yesterday so only slept one night on it but I’m hooked. Beautiful craftsmanship, so soft but firm at the same time but not too much. You can really wrap it around your head and still it fits so easily under your neck! No crooked and painful ear contour, bliss. Thank you so much for a great product.”

Home and Gardening

“I am so grateful that you have started making the contour pillows! I have been sleeping on one of those foam contour pillows and have worried about the health consequences of that, but the problem is that once you get used to the contour pillow, it is nearly impossible to go back to a standard pillow. As soon as I saw that you are making these I ordered two (the 30 oz. and the 35 oz). The are fantastic! I have slept so soundly and feel so much better about sleeping on the wool instead of the foam. If there are any other contour pillow sleepers out there, I just want to let you know that you can order these and know that these wool pillows are the ONLY pillows I have found that work as good and BETTER! Thank you Shepherd’s Dream for helping me sleep better at night! You must have read my mind when you started making these! So far my favorite is the 30 oz, but I plan on testing the 35 oz shortly! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

“Best pillow ever. I love this pillow. It has great support in all the right places and how you can see and feel the quality and care that went into making it. It’s such a joy to sleep on every night. I’m a side sleeper and use this on top of another standard pillow. My next purchase will be another pillow from this site so that eventually all my pillows will be wool.”

Home and Gardening

“It’s been a year since I purchased my pillow. I love it. However, I recommend buying a fluffier pillow than you think. They do compress quite a bit (as they tell you in the description) so I use the two 18 oz pillows put in one pillowcase to get the support I like for my neck when side sleeping.”

“In 2008 I bought a King 38oz. pillow for my husband. 20+ yrs. of buying everything from inexpensive to expensive specialty pillows nothing seemed to help his sinus (allergy) and neck problems. He loves this pillow and his sinus and neck problems are not an issue anymore. In 2009 I decided to buy the same pillow for myself and I couldn’t be happier. I will ALWAYS buy these pillows from you guys, they are terrific. I’m sleeping like a baby. I never thought I could get so excited about a pillow and that it could make such a huge difference. The quality is above great and I feel so good sleeping on something that's healthy. And just a note – wow on the fast response and quick shipping !! I’m also leaving a review on the scrap wool that you sell – I just love what you guys offer and I’m forever a loyal customer !! Thank you thank you thank you !!!!”

Home and Gardening

“Unbelievable pillows….great support, but most surprising is the incredible comfort….the wool immediately relaxes you…and just snuggles your head and face….synthetic and down pillows caused my husband to sweat profusely…and to wake up with stuffy sinuses…the wool actually regulates his body temperature, and night sweats have been reduced tremendously….with clear sinuses every morning.”

“I’ve only been using this for a few days, but I’m really enjoying it. I buy about six pillows a year because I can’t stand most of them or they just don’t last. I’ve tried buckwheat, down, latex, cool comfort, tempur pedic, etc. I have a hard time finding one with a medium amount of next support and one that keeps my head cool. With down I find myself flipping and fluffing in the middle of the night. The tempur pedic is nice for about an hour until my head gets hot and it kinda melts into a washcloth. This wool pillow offers good next support for back sleeping and I don’t find myself having to fluff/adjust it in the middle of the night. I feel that this is a well made pillow, you feel like you got a quality product and not something mass produced.”

Home and Gardening

“I bought this not really knowing why I needed it, but just because it was recommended. I’m currently using this with a latex pillow in the guest room and it really makes a huge difference in my sleep quality (I usually just use my Shepherd’s Dream wool pillow, but occasionally I retreat to the guest room to sleep alone).”

“This is one of the most comfortable blankets I’ve ever owned. It’s different than down. I still like my down comforters because they are so light and seem to fill up all the spaces around you. This wool blanket is a bit heavier and more substantial, yet at the same time feels like I have more space and air next to my body when I sleep. It’s not necessarily superior, just different. The all seasons comforter seems to be best for bedroom temperatures between 55-65 degrees. I sleep very well under this comforter. Well worth the price. Seems like it will last forever.”

Wool really seems better at heat regulation than down. This was a really smart purchase, just wish we hadn’t waited so long to make the switch from down to wool.”

“I love this duvet cover. I splurged when I bought my wool comforter (equally LOVE) and I’m so happy I did. It’s soft and creamy yet feels durable and so far has withstood two crazy kitties running all over it and getting their little nails in it while playing! I wish I could baby it a bit more, since it’s getting some small snags from their “wild moments” burying themselves in it, but I’m happy to know that even while they’re running around all over it, it’s holding up and most importantly protecting my blanket! It’s really soft and buttery and I think the price is great for how long I know it will last. I’ve had it for about 2 years now and can’t imagine having to get another one for a long time. It’s a very comforting part of my bed and I felt instantly at home when I first got it. And it just gets better with age!”
