What’s In Your Pillow? Finding the Perfect Fill

- June 1, 2018

We like to call the pillow a “bed for your head”. Your pillow completes the job of the mattress, cradling the head and supporting it comfortably so the upper vertebrae stay in proper alignment. Sleep & Dream knows the importance of a good night’s sleep and carries a wide variety of pillow brands, types, and fills. Which is best for you and your family’s slumber? Read on to compare.

Down

Many people think down pillows and feather pillows are the same thing. They certainly aren’t! Did you know that pillows only need to have 17% Down to be marketed as a “Down Pillow”?

The Pillow Bar’s hand-made custom European white Down Pillows are crafted by trained pillow makers one-at-a-time to match your unique sleep style, size and age. You’ll also receive complimentary custom embroidery as The Pillow Bar will customize your pillow with your unique message, name, or monogram.

Latex

Latex has a rich bedding history. Used for over a century, latex provides exceptional breathability, support, and comfort all night.

The Sleepland Latex Pillow is the most comfortable cervical pillow ever developed from Europe. This revolutionary pillow is made from Royal-Pedic’s exclusive natural, hypoallergenic Pressure Relaxation Latex Foam offering correct orthopedic support and alignment of your neck, shoulders and spine. 

V&R Naturals Latex Pillow finds the best hypoallergenic, antimicrobial natural materials for your pillow, and ultimately for your sleep. Made with 100% natural latex, you can be assured that you are sleeping on a conforming pillow that will not compress over time. 

Kapok

Kapok is a silky cotton fiber from the seedpod of the kapok, or Java Cotton tree. Kapok has been used in mattresses and pillows for centuries and is valued for its natural properties in resisting moisture and dust mites.

Sleep & Dream carries V&R Naturals Kapok Silk as well as Kapok/Latex Blend Pillows.

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton pillows are made without any chemical or fire-retardant treatments and provide lasting comfort and firm support. The cotton is grown organically, without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilization.

Royal-Pedic’s Natural Cotton Pillow is crafted with generous layers made of organic cotton and surrounded by soft and supple German stretch knit fabric made with organic cotton. These pillows are made with the same dedication to excellence in craftsmanship as Royal-Pedic puts into their hand-crafted mattresses.

Wool

True and pure wool filled pillows are free of harmful chemicals, toxins and synthetics. Wool eliminates overheating and provides relief from MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities) as wool is free of carcinogenic chemicals.

Sleep & Beyond Wool Pillows are filled with 100% washable wool and encased in 100% natural cotton, 270TC percale. Sleep & Beyond is a 3rd generation family-owned manufacturer of organic and natural bedding with fair trade and sustainable factories located in Kyrgyzstan, “The Switzerland of Central Asia”, India and China.
