Ask Naturepedic: Which Organic Pillow is Right for Me?

We offer a variety of organic pillows to suit your needs, with varying levels of comfort and support. With all these options, sometimes people ask us for some help deciding which pillow is right for them! This blog post will provide a guide to our different organic pillows and accessories that provide Safe Healthy Sleep™ for adults and children.

Organic Cotton/Non-GMO PLA Pillow

Organic Cotton Non-GMO PLA Pillow

Great for children and adults, our organic cotton/PLA pillow is light, soft and resilient. It has low-medium loft, which is the pillow’s height on the bed. A medium or low loft pillow is ideal for back sleepers so that your neck doesn’t roll uncomfortably toward your chest with a higher, fluffier pillow. It’s also good for stomach sleepers to maintain a healthier postural alignment while you sleep. Again, a high loft pillow might leave you with a sore neck. The PLA pillow comes in a Junior size for toddlers and kids, as well as Standard, Standard Low-Fill (for lower loft), Queen, and King sizes to match your mattress size. The PLA pillow is machine washable too!

Organic Cotton/PLA Pillow Recap:
– Low to medium loft
– Good for back sleepers
– Good for stomach sleepers
– Available in Junior, Standard, Standard Low-Fill, Queen, and King
– Machine Wash and Dry

Organic Cotton/Kapok Pillow

Organic Cotton/Kapok Pillow

The organic cotton/kapok pillow is made with organic cotton fill and organic kapok, which is also called “silk cotton.” It’s a lighter, fluffier fiber that provides extra loft in your pillow. Kapok’s extra loft may settle over time, so this pillow starts out with higher loft but may end up with medium loft, making it ideal for back or stomach sleepers. Spot clean only. Available in Junior size for toddlers, Standard, Standard Low Fill, Queen, and King sizes.

Organic Cotton/Kapok Pillow Recap:
– Low to medium loft

The outer encasement is washable but the pillow itself is spot clean only. Available in Standard, Queen, and King sizes.

Tips and Tricks for Organic Pillows

If you find that your pillow’s fluffiness is flattening out over time, try fluffing it in the dryer with a few dryer balls (or tennis balls in a pinch) to re-fluff the filling. You can also shift the contents of your pillow when you change your sheets by gently shaking and breaking up any flattened areas.

With a machine washable pillow, run the spin cycle a second time to remove excess moisture and reduce dry time. It may still take a couple of cycles through the dryer to completely dry the whole pillow. Using dryer balls or tennis balls should speed up the process and keep your pillow’s fill fluffier.
