Note: Pillow specification is based on weight of the fill and the height of the pillow.
Our pillows are made with 100% natural fibers and after time they will compress down, so a quick daily fluffing is recommended (as you would with a feather / down pillow). Like in nature, natural fibers can be inconsistent. Sometimes the pillows can be ‘lofty’ to start with, and sometimes a little more settled. Nature cannot be shaped into a consistent form unless man-made fibers and chemicals are added, which We WILL NOT do. Pillows stuffed with silk-cotton act most like standard pillows. They have loft, can be fluffed, do not need to be punched in the middle of the night and retain their shape well.
ABOUT THE OUTER COVERING: This pillow is made with an organic cotton outer (un-dyed, unbleached, un-treated fabric), with a zippered end. Silk cotton pillow casings require a zippered opening that is closed after filling. This also allows you to open and adjust the amount of filling (if required), to obtain the optimum comfort level. For safety reasons the pull tag has been removed. Should you wish to take out some filling, use a paper clip or similar implement to open the zip but this implement must be removed when finished. Take care when opening and removing the silk cotton fibers as they are light enough to blow around.
SILK COTTON PILLOWS ARE AVAILABLE AS
to make sleeping HEALTHIER and much more comfortable.
ABOUT THE SILK-COTTON FILLING:
“Silk” Cotton is a special strain of cotton. It is 100% Silk Cotton. Silk Cotton is the same as Kapok and comes from the kapok tree. There is no ‘silk’ in the pillows. The silk-cotton fluff is actually buoyant and was used in the designs for the first life jackets, that is, until synthetic foams came on the market. It feels similar to the light weight feeling of down, but without the allergies and the loss of loft that go with feathers. The silk is luxurious to the touch and a medium firm support when pillows are stuffed full, softer when some filling is removed and more air is able to permeate the fibers.
