What is the difference between buckwheat and millet hulls?
BOTH PILLOWS ARE EQUALLY FIRM AS WE SLEEP ON THEM; THEY OFFER THE EXACT SAME NECK SUPPORT. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE LIES IN THE TEXTURE OF THE FILLING:
Buckwheat hulls are large hulls that trap a lot of air which is then blown through the pillow when we move in our sleep. Buckwheat hulls rustle when we move. Millet hulls are tiny, they make no sound when they move and the filling feels smooth and velvety.
Millet hulls are not softer than buckwheat hulls, but they do feel more velvety because they are so tiny, round, and smooth.
All hull pillows are temperate (they do not take on heat in the summer or cold in the winter). Buckwheat hulls ventilate more easily given their large irregular shape.
World Class Wool is an all natural wool batting that showcases a cost-effective alternative for organic wool. No chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides are used in the processing of this wool. Every opportunity is taken to source this wool directly from family farms. Several different sheep breeds are used to create the wool including Dorset and Columbia.
The wool fill will compress 25% - 30% within the first couple of months but it will remain comfortable and supportive.
This pillow contains no flame retardants and it's chemical free.
