Shambho Pillow: Natural Wool & Organic Millet or Buckwheat Hulls

Comfortable & Supportive
Contours around your head, neck & shoulders
Organic buckwheat or millet hulls & Premium Eco Wool™
Patented dual chamber design
Perfect for side and back sleepers 
Designed to fit your head, neck and shoulders.

The patented dual chamber and squared corner design keeps the filling under your head and neck where you need it.
The Shambho pillow measures 16” x 10” 4.5”. The finished pillow height is about 25-30% wool and 70-75% hulls.

The Shambho Pillow provides a great solution for side sleepers who need between 4” - 6” of pillow height. Most pillows don’t give you that much which is why many wake with their neck in an uncomfortable position. You end up wakening and trying to adjust the pillow. Once your head and neck are aligned and cradled in the buckwheat pillow you have a better chance at staying asleep. With the dual chamber design you get a generous foundation of moldable hulls to keep your head elevated and your neck aligned and a soft layer of wool batting on top to cushion your face and ear. Together these two fillings help you establish and maintain comfortable spinal alignment all night long.
The pillow is easily adjusted: Place the pillow on your bed with the wool on top for 4” of loft. If you are broad shouldered and need more loft, rotate the pillow a quarter turn so that it sits on its side with the wool facing you. In this position the Shambho Pillow also makes a great headrest to prop yourself for bedtime reading. For a softer feel and less support you can easily open the zipper and remove some of the hulls. Made with certified organic cotton ticking in natural, certified organic millet or buckwheat hulls and premium eco-wool. 

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. This will make a difference for those who tend to perspire at night and wake up to a damp pillow every morning).

What is Eco-Wool™? Eco-Wool™ is entirely derived from regional/domestic flocks of sheep that are raised following industry-leading sustainability and cruelty free standards. All of our wool is purchased from the best farms in the country. It is required that the wool has a minimal amount of vegetable matter and is not treated with any harsh chemicals. Carding equipment then removes vegetable matter from the wool in 6 different steps, eventually producing the signature wool batting

Our Premium Eco Wool™ is domestically sourced. The organic organic sateen fabric is made with organic cotton grown in Texas and milled into fabric in North Carolina. The certified organic buckwheat and millet hulls are from North Dakota. The pillow is hand made in our production studio in Albuquerque, NM.

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.
