Year after year we hear stories of pets pinching and making use of customer's Chimney Sheep chimney draught excluders for themselves, most often using them as a bed or a cushion. So, we thought why aren't we offering something woolly just for pets? So, we came up with the PetSnug pet bed range - and extra wool pet cushions. These wool cushions can purchased as extras to go alongside our PetSnug pet range, or can be used standalone - as a great snooze spot. We wanted to bring sustainability into the spotlight with our PetSnug range, so we made sure to use only the highest quality renewable natural materials when it comes to our pet beds and pet cushions. Matched with our small batch, low waste and low energy production methods to further insure these wool pet cushions don't harm the environment we're proud to say we've produced something with a wonderfully low carbon footprint - just the thing if you're looking to lower your pets carbon pawprint.
Each individual PetSnug wool pet cushion is made of natural locally sourced Herdwick sheep's wool, stuffed inside a naturally dyed cotton outer. The outer is naturally water resistant, meaning these cushions are easy care and wipeable. These pet cushions are filled to the brim with bouncy Herdwick wool, making them plump soft and comfortable - the perfect perch for your pet. All of the wool used inside these pet cushions has been sourced directly from the farm, with the farmer being paid a fair price for their wool and us organising the collection directly.
Every PetSnug natural wool cushion for pets is made from entirely natural materials. They are completely plastic, solvent and glue free - perfect if you're making environmentally pawsitive choices.

Further to this, we're making sure to utilise only low-carbon production methods to make our wool pet cushions. We use careful handcrafting techniques, produce in small batches and use low energy methods of production - and ensure we make as little waste as possible.

What size PetSnug wool pet cushion do I need?
Our wool pet cushions are incredibly multipurpose. Not only can they be purchased as extras or additional spare cushions to go alongside your PetSnug bed. They can be purchased for other standalone reasons too. Perhaps to sit upon a chair or counter top as a purrfect perch for your pet? The size you will need will depend upon what you're using it for after all.
If your purchasing one of our wool pet cushions as a replacement for the inner cushion to your PetSnug, it just needs to correspond to the size of our PetSnug outer. If your PetSnug is a small wool cat bed, you simply need a size small wool pet cushion. If you've purchased a large cat PetSnug or a PetSnug wool dog bed, you just need a size large cushion - as these beds have the same diameter. Simple!
But, if you're planning on using this wool pet cushion for something else, the measurement might come in handy - so here they are!
The diameters of our chunky wool pet cushions are as follows:
- Small - 36cm diameter (For the PetSnug small cat bed)
- Large 46 cm diameter (For the PetSnug large cat bed or PetSnug dog bed)
They are incredibly conforming and squashy, so they'll fit into all kinds of spaces. But, if you're purchasing a wool pad for a dog we'd perhaps encourage you to size up, simply because dogs tend to be a little bigger than our feline friends (except perhaps if you have a Maine Coon!).
Why should I choose a wool pet cushion?
Not only is wool an incredibly comfy, cosy natural material, it's got all kinds of properties which make it a fantastic thing to make a pet cushion out of.
Not only is it bouncy and comfortable, it's naturally antibacterial - it doesn't hold bacteria which means it doesn't tend to accumulate smells either. It's also wonderfully sustainable, and in the case of this particular wool cushion all the of the wool has been sourced directly, with farmers being paid a fair price for their wool. It's naturally insulating and breathable meaning it's great for regulating temperature too. By purchasing a British wool product you'll also be supporting British farms too.
These particular wool cushions have been made as sustainable as possible - alongside the locally sourced British wool, we've made sure that we only use the highest quality sustainable materials to produce our wool felt cushions, alongside our eco-friendly, low waste, small batch production methods we're proud to say out wool cushions have minimal impact on the environment!
