Wow! That looks really nice! Have you seen these in the store? I wonder how they feel. Are they like spun wool like polyfil or is it in a sheet like a wool blanket?

Do you know what the shipping would be for a king? I put one in my cart, but I wasn't a member so it wouldn't let me complete it.

But it's dry clean only. Bummer.

So do I, with down. Down won't felt. Unless this is labeled as superwash or prewashed/felted wool, tossing it in the wash may very well ruin it.

That's my main concern with buying any of these wool blankets without all the info.

These are awesome, I also am wondering about the pillows. I would personally just spot wash it and use a nice duvet cover for it. I so rarely wash my down comforter :because I have such a nice 650 thread count pima cotton duvet, nothing gets through that thing.

I would like to get one for DD's bed, and maybe mine too. Did they have any sheet sets on there? A few weeks ago we were at Costco and they had awesome flannel sheet sets for 29.99.

hmmmm...yeah, that was what I was going to say. Although, I wonder though if you keep this in a duvet cover, unless someone pees or vomits on it, it shouldn't need to be washed as much as regular quilt or comforter.

I sure am interested. Do you need to have a costco membership to order it, or do you just need to register with the website?

I have a wool pillow from PureRest. I love it. It is slightly more compacted than fluffy polyfil. You can keep pulling it apart though to keep it fluffed up.

But, it is Costco, the home of the "If you don't like it, return it" policy.'

If it shrinks or gets wonky, bring it back.

here's how my favorite natural company says to clean them.


The best way to care for all of our wool or cotton filled bedding is to expose them to direct sun-light and air once a month. This process will evaporate all the moisture that may be contained within the fibers and will also freshen the bedding by taking out any body odors.

Another alternative to sunning and airing is to put pillows, pads, and comforters in the dryer on cold air fluff for 10-20 minutes (check every 5 minutes) with a tennis ball or clean tennis shoe to refluff the fibers.

Stains may be spot cleaned using a solution of 1:3 parts of white distilled vinegar and water. Spray the vinegar/water solution on the stain and expose to direct sunlight. Let dry. Continue this method until stain fades and odors dissipate.

OR

Use a non-toxic spot cleaner. Use as directed. Be sure product dries completely.

OR

Spot clean with a mixture of borax and water. Then put out where it can be exposed to direct sunlight to dry and help clean it.

If sunning and airing is not feasible, bedding products may be professionally cleaned by an upholstery method using a wet-cleaning technique.

DO NOT DRY CLEAN if you don't want chemicals!
