Announcement    Really! ...October 2022 just blew in with the leaves. Doesn't everyone need the tattie holidays to wrap up warm when chilling out. On the farm our lambs are now weaned so the ewes can have their well earned rest & TLC. The cheeky pets have eaten all farm flowers, ignore most of the farm dykes, fences and generally wandered free where ever they wanted!. If their wool is like their characters then naughty is the word for it!.
"Wool" in the UK is really over 60 different breeds of sheep. Each breeds wool has very different characteristics. This gives us plenty to try out. Our humble sheep grow the most amazing fibre for helping you sleep, indeed we believe everyone should have a wool pillow for the best sleep possible. We (Uan Wool) i.e. me, my farming family (& my humble sheep), handcraft bespoke wool pillows to suit an individual’s needs. Our artisan business is based on a traditional hill farm in the Braes of Angus, Glen Isla. We design & hand craft beautiful, quality wool pillows and warming gifts with our own homegrown wool, British wools, yarns & cloth, including fine Scottish woven merino. You are welcome to visit the studio here at the farm, please call or message first to let us know you want to visit. The wool wadding as backing material for making needle felt pictures, & little picture kits - can be found in my shop section "Angus Wools for crafting". Needle felting is good for the soul. I taught myself when I was prototyping for creating our pillows. This is still an ongoing process discovering how the characteristic of all the wools behave. We greatly welcome feedback & reviews on all our products - this tell us what we are getting right (or wrong) and helps provide information to individuals considering purchasing. As a wee business we are always greatly appreciative of customers reviews. Please remember we are happy to help with bespoke or custom orders too. Julie @ Uanwool

Scottish Sleep Experince with Wool

Hello , I'm a mum of two and a hill sheep farmer in the Braes of Glen Isla, Angus. I think I fell in love with wool when I was about 4 years old - as a toddler helping to roll fleeces. My love of wool reconnected when I was investigating how I could manage my sons asthma symptoms to improve his sleep. Wool bedding was suggested and Uan Wool was created on the amazing improvement to my sons sleep. (He now sleeps all night, no coughing and no snuffles). A case of not seeing the wool for all the sheep on the farm!. So since 2013, with lots of research, proto type's, user groups, wonderful customer feedback, the help from Dundee, Abertay & Herriot Watt Uni's, the BWMB, and not forgetting our son. I can welcome you to Uan Wool, and our Scottish sleep experience pillows. We aim to create the best wool pillows we can using our own home grown Scottish & British Wools. Sleep is such an important necessity and the body's care and repair system . I do hope you will like and enjoy our "boutique health" products found in our Uan Wool etsy shop. Our products are like us, developing & improving as we grow. If you have any questions about how wool is natures smart fibre, just ask.

Frequently asked questions
Are your wool products easy cleaned?

Yes, they can be handwashed, machine washed on the wool cycle or dry cleaned. Remember sheep don't shrink in the rain, and we would never ever put them on the 90 deg. wash.

Is your wool organic?

Our sheep are managed to the organic husbandry standards on our hill farm. But we do not hold this certification yet. The organic certification process takes a min. of 2 years to convert. Currently we hold QMS Assurance Schemes Accreditations ( Member 014170).

What is "Uan" Wool

Uan is gaelic for "little lamb". We chose the name as it was the bedtime story we were reading our children. We thought it appropraite given our quest to improve our sons sleep, general health and well being that sleep gives. And reduce his need for his asthma inhaler and steriods. Our logo - the Blackface ewe & lamb represents a mothers bond, love and care. The Blackface breed are highly regarded for having the best mothering abilities of all the different sheep breeds.

Will wool bedding really help me sleep?

Yes, wool has so many natural anti allergy and self adjusting temperature properties it has been scientifically proven to create a micro climate around you in your sleep environment. Wool is also very durable, it will last a long time and as a natural material is very different from polyester or feather fill.
