Buckwheat hulls have a ventilating property. As a result, body heat and moisture are immediately cleared away and the pillow remains extremely cool and hygienic. Dust mites, fungi and bacteria cannot settle in the pillow. This makes it hypo-allergenic and excellent for allergy sufferers.
Buckwheat hulls are unique in the degree of moldability. Due to the right amount of hulls in a pillow, it easily positions itself under shoulder and neck and the head is fully supported. All this results in complete support and relaxation of muscles and joints. The correct sleeping position prevents neck and shoulder complaints and can even stop snoring.

A pillow is a very personal belonging. The correct amount of filling is very important to achieve your ideal buckwheat pillow.
Refilling your pillow
- Stand your buckwheat pillow upright with the zipper up so you don’t waste buckwheat filling. Top up the filling as needed. You do this by opening the zipper and scooping some filling into it, for example with the help of a cup. Then close the zipper.
- Test the pillow by lying in your favorite sleeping position. Do this on your mattress, as this will affect the amount of filling required. Note: it is important that your spine is straight and that your head and neck are fully supported. Repeat these steps until you lie ergonomically.
- Close the paper bag with excess filling. Then keep this bag in a dry place for possible refills in the future. Enjoy the benefits.
