We’re passionate about sleep. That’s why we got into this business more than twenty-five years ago, and why we haven’t stopped searching for better ways of doing things since the beginning. It even meant changing the name of the company in 1995, and moving away from conventional mattresses to specialize in mattresses made from organic materials. The result of this learning process has been more knowledge about the way people sleep, and as a result, a better mattress. Mattresses that combine the finest ethically sourced, organic materials with a unique customization process to create the perfect mattresses, free of harsh chemicals.
In the end, it’s all about a better night’s sleep. Because when you sleep well, you live well.
I can not tell you how many times I have purchased a pillow and been disappointed each night because it was not comfortable to lay on. Too firm or too flimsy is usually the issue.

I had the opportunity to review a Saguenay V1.0 Pillow from Obasan.

FEATURES

  • Filled with shredded organic wool
  • Removable cover with two different surfaces for warm or cold nights (silky organic cotton and organic cotton jersey)
  • Zipper on both sides for easy removal
  • Fully adjustable for individual needs
  • Chemical free, won’t hold dust mites
  • Thermo regulating  properties  of wool help control overheating
  • No off-gassing
This pillow is very different from all the pillows I have used in the past. The Obasan Organic Wool Pillow is customizable to suit anyone's needs. I prefer a pillow that is medium fluff and not too firm. When I received the Organic Wool Pillow, it seemed a bit too firm to me but I gave it a try for a few nights. Although I did get a good night's sleep and the pillow was pretty comfortable, I decided to remove some of the wool filling and see what other options I had. I felt more comfortable after my alteration and I have been sleeping like a baby ever since. I feel more refreshed in the mornings...possibly the works of this pillow?
The pillow case has two different fabrics~silky organic cotton and organic cotton jersey. The silky organic cotton is probably best for the warmer nights since it tends to keep cool. I have been using the organic cotton jersey side to lay my head on and the fabric stays warm. I like that since we keep the heat at 68 degrees during the winter.
After using this pillow fro a couple months, I can honestly say I will never switch back to my old pillow or to any other pillow for that matter!
*PURCHASE*
 The standard size Obasan Saguenay Organic Pillow retails for $129 and is well worth it, seeing I will never have to purchase another pillow again! This pillow would be the perfect Mother's Day gift!
