Comparing Buckwheat Pillows
October 22, 2012 • By Nick
When comparing buckwheat pillows there are a number of things to consider. Not all pillows are created equal and there are a few details which can make a big difference in the product that you choose. Make an informed choice when choosing your buckwheat pillow by keeping these things in mind:
Adequate Size and Amount of Fill
After testing various sizes, we determined that a full-size pillow (20″x26″) provides the most comfort and support. Plus, it fits perfectly in any of the standard style pillowcases you own, making it compatible with standard bedding sizes. Many companies sell small pillows, often marketed as “Japanese size”. These undersized, underweight pillows are offered at a lower-cost, but we feel they are not the best size for your comfort or your bedding. Be sure to consider the dimensions and weight of any buckwheat pillow before you purchase it.
Zipper & Adjustability
Does the pillow have a zipper? A zipper is an important feature on a buckwheat pillow for a few reasons. First, it allows you to add or remove fill to adjust the pillow’s thickness to suit your personal preference. Second, a zipper allows you to remove the fill so you can wash the pillow case, keeping your pillow fresh and clean. Third, if you ever want to refresh pillow with new, springy hulls or if you’d like add aromatherapy scents to your pillow, a zipper gives you all the flexibility you need.
What kind of material is the pillow made of? How is it designed and constructed? What kind of buckwheat hulls is it filled with? The shell of Hullo is 100% certified organic cotton. Our hulls are grown and milled in the U.S.A. by American farmers. Our heavy duty zipper is made by Dunlap.

Made in U.S.A.
Was the case cut & sewn in the United States? Where was the buckwheat grown and milled? Make sure you are supporting American workers when you choose your pillow.
Is the pillow in stock and ready to ship? What is the shipping method and how long will it take to get your pillow? If you aren’t satisfied, can you return the pillow?
