Our double knit, organic, 100% cotton fabric creates a very soft and very quiet, hull pillow.
You may have heard that hull pillows are noisy. This is only due to the fact that the soft rustling sound of the hulls can be amplified by pillows made from the wrong type of fabric.
Full-size inserts measure *20" X 30"
Travel size inserts measure *20" X 14"
Neck/lumbar roll size measure *10" X 30"
Waterproof indoor outdoor throw pillow insert measures *18" X 18"
* We do our best to estimate the sizes of our pillows but they spread and scrunch to size so there really are no exact measurements with hull filled pillows! Also, the fabric stretches due to how it is woven and may stretch a bit with use.
Experiment to see what quantity of hulls is best for you.
The neck and travel pillows will hold a maximum of 5 pounds of buckwheat hulls or a maximum of 4.5 pounds of lavender millet hulls.
For full-size inserts, order 10 lbs buckwheat hulls or 9 lbs lavender millet hulls.
Note you may want to use less hulls to start and save some to add to add to your pillow years down the road.
Don't forget to order the coordinating Envelope style pillowcases which work best to protect your inserts. You can use a standard pillowcase, but our cases have the same stretch as our inserts. Stiff cases, without stretch, can restrict your hulls, making your pillow feel too firm. Give your hulls the freedom to perfectly contour to your head, neck, and shoulders for best results.
Another idea is to order a pair of inserts one to hold the hulls and one to use as the pillow case which can be easily removed for washing.

Safety Note: Do not let infants sleep on buckwheat hull pillows as they are considered soft bedding and a SIDS risk.
You may also find other materials to use with these inserts, perhaps something you already have on hand or other natural materials you have access to!
Inserts come pre-washed. Zippers are non-organic.
