Crescent Moon uses 100% natural, organically grown alpaca wool. Alpaca fiber is hollow, making it one of the warmest natural fibers available. It is also very light and soft so we add some sheep wool to hold the fibers apart and produce more loft.
Alpaca fiber's porous nature is naturally dry and clean which prevents dust mites and other allergens from settling in. Recent research has found that dust mites are one of the most common causes of asthma and allergies in the bedroom.
The shorn animals are raised in a pesticide free environment and their wool is a renewable resource. No chemicals, dyes or bleaches are used when the wool is processed. We use only 100% organic cotton fabric so the whole product is 100% biodegradable at the end of its long life. Alpaca fiber loves fresh air and will re-loft when put outside for a few hours.
Note: All pillow sales are final. Please allow a 1-2 week lead time.

Our latex is made from pure rubber tree sap, we use organic wool as our fire barrier and it is selected from only the finest sheep farms in New Zealand, and our Cotton is 100% organically grown in the cotton fields of Texas. Nothing but good, honest organic materials provided by good, honest people.

Do not attempt to wash any pillows that are made with cotton batting or wool batting. They may be gently spot cleaned with water and mild detergent if necessary, but don't try to remove them or put them in the washing machine.
The only pillows that can be washed are the ones only containing wool bolus and shredded latex.
Be sure to protect your pillow from dust, stains, and other containment's with a Soaring Heart 100% Organic Cotton pillowcase.
I have been through a LOT of pillows. This is by far my most favorite. I am an active sleeper and like to sleep on my sides, stomach and back. This pillow is super easy to shape shift as I rotate at night, and actually works wonderfully for every position. Plus, thanks to the Alpaca and wool, no more allergies. . . It really is the best. Also, for me, it’s very important to support companies who are operating consciously and creating products in alignment with nature. This pillow hits every mark. Highly recommend!
