Our Zabutons are handmade using the same cotton or raw silk material that we cover our Meditation Benches and Zafus with — order together for a matching set! The eco-wool filling creates a light resilient cushion perfect for under a meditation bench or pillow.
We recommend the regular Zabuton for those meditating in a carpeted room or space with padded flooring. It's ideal for traveling as it's lightweight and easily folds into quarters.
If you are meditating on a hard surface or have issues with your ankles or knees, we highly recommend our Deluxe Zabuton as it provides extra padding.

Benefits of Wool:
Comfort: Wool adds loft for comfort and resilience for sitting in meditation. We feel wool is the ideal filling for a meditation pillow. Saints and rishis through the ages have recommended wool for the meditator for the insulation it provides from subtle energies emanating from the earth, which tend to hold consciousness down. It has been found that wool zabutons allow for greater circulation to keep the legs and feet from falling asleep.
Lightweight and durability: Wool fiber lasts longer than most other fiber because it has a natural crimp that acts like a spring, constantly flexing and returning to its original shape. It is lightweight, comfortable and resilient.
Eco-friendly: Our renewable eco-wool comes from small Northern California farms that raise sheep free-range without pesticides. It is washed and processed without harsh chemicals like bleach. The detergent used to clean the wool leaves behind no detectable residue and is biodegradable.

To clean you may very gently spot clean with cold water and a mild soap and let air dry. For a deeper clean have your pillow dry cleaned and let your cleaner know that the filling is wool.
Please, DO NOT place in your washer! The fill is 100% wool and will become a felted mess!
