Our Crescent Cushions are shaped to support the upper leg for ultimate comfort. Our eco-wool filling provides for an extraordinary softness to help you ease into a deep meditation.
Crescent pillows are covered with the same cotton or raw silk material that we cover our Meditation Benches and Zabutons with — order together for a matching set! Our wool filling is soft but firm enough to support excellent upright posture and healthy circulation during meditation. Other filling materials often feel hard or compress over time, whereas wool remains comfortable and resilient after years of use.
Standard wool-filled: Soft and very resilient, with about 4 in. of loft when in use
Extra wool-filled: Slightly firmer feel, with about 5 in. of loft when in use. While remaining comfortable, the extra-wool model is more densely filled to give you more lift and support.
Organic Cotton Canvas: Black, Burgundy, Sage, Fern, Natural, Sweet Potato, Blue, and Light Navy.
Cotton Canvas: Purple
Raw Silk: Forest, Teal, Indigo (Purple). Please note that rather than being smooth and shinny, raw silk is soft and lightly textured.
Some of the 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.
Lightweight and durability: With just over 1 lb. of filling in the standard crescent model, it is one-third to one-fifth the weight of comparable pillows. 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.
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.
