Should I use a pillow protector on my wool and organic cotton pillow?

I usually like to have a pillow protector on my pillow, but since switching to your wool and organic cotton pillow and organic cotton pillow cases I cannot find an organic pillow protector. It doesn't make a lot of since to spend the money on the organic product, just to cover it with a non-organic product, but I want my wool pillow to last a long time and be protected. What is your advise.
Why not just use an organic cotton pillowcase? Wool is naturally resistant to dust mites, so if you used to have a problem with dust mite waste (or at least were worried about having a problem), worry no more. If you are worried about microbes feeding on your drool (no offense, I usually drool in my sleep), viola!--wool is naturally anti-microbial.

Also, since pillow "protectors" standardly contain plastic/polyurethane, they off-gas VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). See the 1-star review for the polyurethane-backed curtains for more info; look up 25-0004 on this site. I personally want to avoid VOC off-gassing next to my face all night--I'd rather *I* was protected than my pillow was protected.

Go wool!
