This Zabuton is handmade using the same organic cotton 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.
Size and weight:
2" of loft
Sometimes our furry friends take a liking to our Zabutons, so it can be really helpful to have the removable, washable, zippered cover! The regular zabuton does NOT come with a removable cover, but we have extra Washable Zabuton Case with Zipper available for purchase. Our Deluxe Zabuton has a removable, washable cover, as well as more padding!
Organic Cotton Canvas: Black, Burgundy, Sage, Fern, Natural, Sweet Potato, Light Navy and Midnight Blue.
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.
