Fillers In Woven Wool Rug Pillows

The fillers used in pillow making affect the look and feel of the pillow. It can differ in weight, softness, puffiness, and price.
The filler in a pillow can either be natural or artificial; both are soft and cozy.
Some of the fillers that we use in the rug pillow covers are:

  • Organic cotton
  • Synthetic polyester
  • Wool
  • Thermocol balls
  • Foam
  • Down

The down pile is a very popular type of rug woven pillow. It is made from the feathers found on a duck’s back. This type of rug pillow can also be made with other feathers, like those found on swans and hummingbirds.

Different Types Of Pillow Shapes

  • Square
  • Round
  • Lumbar
  • Bolster


Square rug cushions are the most standard shape. Square pillows generally come in three common dimensions 16 inches, 18 inches, and 20 inches. Sticking to a square shape benefits if one needs to replace the cover later.


Round pillows are rare compared to squares but can be an attractive choice to balance the straight lines of square and rectangular cushions.


Rugs’ lumbar pillows have an oval, rectangular shape. They are designed not only to support the born curvature of your spine but are now used more often for decorative purposes. The round lumbar pillows are decorative as well and are called round bolster pillows.


Decorative bolster pillows are cylinder-shaped ones most commonly used on beds and couches. Bolster rug pillows are also called couch pillows and are made in special sizes. The length of these pillows is almost double the size of their width.

How To Wash A Rug Cushion

Go for spot cleaning as much as possible.
For a full wash, first, remove the filler cover from the pillow cover.
After washing, hang the pillow cover on a string dryer to let the water drain out and dry more quickly.

Care and Maintenance

The rug throw pillow cover is removable and has a separate coated cloth with the filler within. Therefore, washing the pillow cover as and when needed is easier.
These pillows are easily machine washable, but some sewn-on covers may require spot cleaning.


Handwoven rugs are such that they are more durable than most fabrics available on the market. Rugs are tough and strong, and the pillows made from them are not only soft and cozy but also long-lasting. The good thing about rug pillow throws is that they are cheap to replace, so you can switch them out whenever you want.

Matching Rug Pillow And Curtains

There are many ways to match a rug with curtains. One way is to use the same fabric for the rug and curtains. Another option is to use a contrasting fabric for the rug and curtains.

One way is to find a fabric with both colors or one you can easily dye to get both colors. Another way is to find two fabrics with similar patterns so they will still work together even if they have different colors.

The second option, contrasting fabrics, can be done in many ways. One way is by choosing two fabrics that are very different from each other but are still complementary colors (i.e., one blue and one yellow).

Another way would be to choose two fabrics with similar patterns, like stripes. A third way would be to choose one delicate fabric and one bold, patterned fabric that are the same color.

Rug Pillow Combinations

Rug and pillow combinations can be pretty confusing. There are many different combinations that you can try out to see which one will work best for you.
This is a list of some of the most popular rug and pillow combinations:

  • A round rug with round pillows: This is a very popular combination for the living room or bedroom. The round shapes of the rug and pillows give the room a cozy feeling.
  • Runner rug with square pillows: A runner rug would go well with square pillows because they have similar shapes and sizes, but runner rugs are not recommended for bedrooms because they don’t provide enough cushioning to sleep on them comfortably.
  • Runner rug with rectangular pillows: A runner rug would go well with rectangular pillows because they are rectangular.


Why You Should Buy A Rug Pillow Cover
The types of rug pillow covers that people use in their homes vary depending on the size and shape of the rug. People with smaller, round rugs often use a pillow the same size as the rug. Larger, rectangular rugs are often laid on top of larger, rectangular pillows.

The type of rug pillows people use also depends on whether or not they have pets. If someone has a long-haired pet, they might want a washable pillow cover to protect the fabric from getting dirty. This can be especially important for those who have carpeted floors or don’t often vacuum because pets shed constantly and will spread their hair throughout the house.
