Up at night counting sheep? You may be sleeping on the wrong pillow! With so many pillow options on the market, it can be challenging to choose the right one for you. If you’re sleeping on the incorrect pillow, underlying problems can be worsened such head and neck discomfort. If your pillow is past its prime, you may also be suffering from allergic reactions to dust mites and mildew within the pillow. Here at Alamosa Home, we know the importance of a good night’s sleep. Our Team has put together a guide for a variety of pillow options including organic cotton, eco-wool, duck down, and microcushion. Which is best for you and your family’s slumber? Read on to compare.
Cuddledown Duck Down Pillows
Rated “Best Natural Stomach Sleeping Pillow” by Health Magazine. A Cuddledown pillow begins with the fill. The pillows are filled with premium goose and duck down and feathers, mostly sourced from some of the finest down producers in Europe. All of Cuddletown’s down is hypoallergenic as it undergoes a thorough cleaning and high temperature sterilization process. Cuddletown’s pillows are available in four sizes and four firmness levels. This “introductory” down pillow is affordably priced, yet made with the same construction as their higher end pillows. Made with premium 600 Fill Power European Duck Down from the Pyrenees Mountains and smooth 330 thread count 100% cotton cambric fabric, all Cuddledown’s pillow fabrics are double stitched, downproof and Oeko-Tex Certified to be free of all harmful chemicals.
Organic Cotton Pillow Medium Fill
For those seeking a firmer, flatter pillow, these cotton pillows are filled with pure, sanitized 100% certified organic cotton. Organic cotton pillows are constructed from organically grown cotton that is free of chemicals and pesticides. Naturally hypoallergenic with the ability to repel dust mites, mold, and mildew, these slumber-inducing pillows are available three weights: light, medium, and full. The light weight is perfect for children or stomach sleepers. Back sleepers usually choose the medium. The full weight offers the best support for side sleepers. When choosing your organic cotton pillow, keep in mind that cotton pillows compress about one-half over time.
Eco-Wool Pillow Medium Fill
A wool pillow? That may sound like a rough and scratchy night’s sleep. However, wool pillows actually offer a soft and springy fill. Wool naturally wicks away moisture, is dust mite resistant (perfect for those with allergies), and tends to sleep cooler and compact less than cotton fill. Eco-wool does not contain any chemical pesticides or herbicides and is harvested with sustainability and cruelty free standards in place. As with our Organic Cotton Pillow, the Eco-Wool Pillow is available in 3 weights: light, medium, and full. When choosing your eco-wool pillow, keep in mind that wool pillows compress about one-third over time.
The TEMPUR-Rhapsody Pillow is generously filled with shapeable micro-cushions. TEMPUR material is composed of millions of moveable cells designed to cushion and support you during sleep. This luxurious pillow is sensitive to body temperature and weight, so you can sleep and wake refreshed. The TEMPUR-Rhapsody Pillow supports the head, neck, and shoulders, allowing muscles to fully relax. Dust mites and allergens don’t stand a chance against this pillow. Yet another great benefit is the easily removable and washable cover. Sweet dreams!
