Deep Sleep

The support of my Hullo pillow is unparalleled. I love that it’s all natural, hand crafted and American-made! It has substance, style and cleaves with my ethics. Can’t recommend it more!

I’ve Been Waiting My Whole Life for this Pillow

I have huge shoulders and sleep on my side. I’ve been riddled with neck and neck pain my whole life. And I’m fit! So my arches and pains don’t come from just lack of taking care of myself.

It took me a week to get used to, but I can’t imagine ever going back. Having amazing support no matter what side I roll to, every night, is just such a luxury. I know it’s $100. I know it’s a first world thing. But if you can’t sleep and the 1/3 of the time is screwing with with the other 2/3…it’s worth it.

Highly Recommended

I love my pillow, needed to take some of the fill out to reach my desired firmness, but I preferred too much fill, which was easy to remove, rather than too little. I sleep better with this pillow than any other I’ve found.

My 6 year old daughter has hijacked it for now because she loves its weight on her body as she falls asleep! I am going to need to steal it back!

Sturdy and Comfortable!

I’ve had my Hullo pillow for a little over 6 months now and I’ve loved it the whole time. I prefer firm pillows when I sleep and, before buying this one, would generally get a pillow, use it for maybe a year, and then get gradually worse sleep as the pillow wore out until I grabbed a new one and started the process over again. Though it hasn’t been a year yet, the Hullo has been as solid as when I first got it and has helped my sleep immensely. I will say if you are considering buying one it definitely takes some getting used to and isn’t for everyone. It’s by far the firmest pillow I’ve used (which was great for me it turns out) and when you lay on it you stay put where you laid your head down. Also the sound of the pillow can take some adjusting too since it is a bag full of hulls; it’s not a loud sound, but it is something to get used to if you shift around at night.

Overall, though, I can’t recommend it enough!

Pressuring Everyone to Get One

Ever since I got this pillow (smallest size), I sleep super well.

It stabilizes my head at a supportive level so that it’s set to stay there for 8 hours as I sleep.

I loved it so much, I considered getting a buckwheat hull bed… and then I did.

I also got my sister one for her birthday and she’s pretty happy with it.

It feels pretty good about sleeping on something that’s made in the USA, doesn’t pollute a ton in its creation, and won’t pollute when I’m done with it.

Win-win all around.

You Had Me at Hullo

I have tried several different types of pillows in my lifetime because of various orthopedic problems and desperation for non narcotic pain and insomnia relief you name it i’ve probably tried it and as a child in the mid 90’s my occupational therapy suggested to my parents i try a buckwheat pillow and it was great no more insomnia no more pain etc.etc. the problem was as the years went by the hulls eventually as they do broke down/flatten etc and there was no way to replace the hulls the casing had no zipper so unfortunately and regrettably at the time we threw it away thinking we’ll just order a new one from the therapy catalogue we had no computers back then let alone a way to online shop come to find out the company we got the first one from went out of business so i reverted back to my foam pillow and various feather cotton and so on  fast forward to about 20 years later about a year ago i started having severe episodes of insomnia and pain again remembering the comfort and relief i had with my good ol’ buckwheat pillow and this being the 21st century i decided to see if i could buy one online and bingo came across an asian company that sells king size for about 40 bucks a piece vs hullo’s price and i thinking buckwheat pillows are all the same and could save a few bucks went with the cheaper brand BIG mistake the case was so thin and stitching weak but worst off was the pesticide fumes it gave off which gave me migraines every time i slept on it because it had to be fumigated prior to being imported to the u.s.a long story short you get what you pay for and if you want a high quality if not the highest quality buckwheat pillow made in the U.S.A get a hullo

say hello to hullo then goodnight lol

p.s. i just wish a few things like the prices could be just a little lower without lowering quality or you had the choice between buckwheat or millet hulls and you could buy just the case as a spare incase something happens to the other like if it ever needs to be washed etc

Honest, Quality Company Making an Amazing, Quality Pillow

Ordering was easy and the company is up-front, honest, and helpful. The pillow is high quality and very comfortable. You will sleep well for two reasons: The pillow supports your neck like no other pillow. It keeps you cool, and unlike so many other pillows that have toxins and a toxic smell, this pillow is safe, which is the second reason you’ll sleep well. You’ll know that what your face is touching and what you’re breathing night after night for years to come is safe and not toxic to you or your family or pets. These are the only pillows anyone should ever buy.

Great Company, Great Product!

I’ve had terrible neck pain for about 20 years.  I recently heard about the buckwheat pillow and was lucky to be able to try one at a high end hotel.  I really liked it so I bought the cheapest “travel size” I could find thinking I could also travel with it. Mistake.  Really uncomfortable.

I did a bunch of online research and liked the way Hullo presented so I ordered their standard size pillow.

Wow!  I slept great.  About a week or two later it seemed like the hulls were compressing a little too much and I needed more buckwheat hulls.  I emailed Hullo and asked to order more hulls.  They sent them to me FREE!  For many months now, my neck pain is just gone.  I will never sleep on another type of pillow again.

The pillow seems like it needs a few more hulls again so I’m buying some more.  I guess I really like it thick for side sleeping.  I always used to sleep on my arms and my pillow. Now my arms fall asleep so it’s better to have just the pillow and leave my arms by my side.

Love the support!  Love the company.

A Great Pillow

I was a bit skeptical the first night but once I dialed it in, I’m a believer.  It took about 2 weeks of taking some out, adding some back in that I got the pillow exactly where I prefer.

I’m a side sleeper and love the support my neck and head get.  The support lasts all morning and I don’t have to keep flipping or fluffing the pillow.  The firmness does take some getting used to but I sleep with earrings in and it doesn’t bother me.

The “noise” hasn’t been a factor for me or my spouse–its just a quiet rustle as I settle into the pillow.

I love how cool it stays!

It is a little bit harder to sit propped up in bed, leaning against the headboard than a traditional pillow.  Overall a great trade for a great nights sleep.

Absolutely YES!

Had been through a number of regular pillows and all gave me neck and upper back pains. Hubby got a hullo for me and I’ve had some of the best sleep (in years) since using it. No more pain in the morning. This one is a keeper (just like hubby!).

You owe it to yourself to try one.

Improved My Sleep

It took me a while to get used to the crunching, but I love it now. It really helps with neck and shoulder pain. Great investment for good sleep.

Worth Every Penny!

I don’t usually write reviews, but am making an exception for this product.  I heard about the Hullo pillows on a podcast and thought my wife and I could give them a try since they have a very generous 60 day return policy.

Neither of us loved them immediately.  I liked it but they do seem noisy at first and they are so different from any pillow I had every used before.

My wife was harder to win over and, even though we are in our 50s, she was now on the hunt for the perfect pillow.  She did research, bought pillows online, bought pillows in stores, tried them out and ended up returning all of them.  None of them were better than the Hullo pillow!

We both love them now, have less neck pain, sleep comfortably and don’t notice the noise anymore (they either got quieter or we adjusted to the noise).

Anyway, we are both very happy with them and would highly recommend them.

Take a Chance

TLDR:  Amazing pillow. Don’t let the Buckwheat or price tag steer you away. Highly recommend.

So, if you’re here, you’re likely like me.  Maybe you cicked on an ad, maybe it showed up on a google search.

Regardless, I found myself here, looking at site.. thinking it just another pillow claiming to be the next cure for world hunger.  Buckwheat? that was a nickname of one of my grade school friends.

Eventually, I decided to try them, as their return policy was great and my current pillow had me up with a sore neck and headaches more often than not.

So, the pillow arrives. I try it out of the box. It wasn’t a good nights sleep at all, or the following 6 days.  It comes with a sheet suggesting to adjust the buckwheat levels, so I tried that over 2 more nights.. and magic happened.

4 months later, I can’t imagine using any other pillow. The headaches are gone. Switching from back sleep to side sleep is effortless.

It’s even gotten to the point of me taking my pillow with me when I travel, as any other pillow seems woefully inadequate.

So if you’ve read this far and are on the fence.. I can’t recommend that you try one enough.

Love My Pih-dough

When my son was just learning to talk he loved his pillow. He didn’t have a special blanket, he had a special pillow which he called his pih-dough. It was cute then. But now, twenty years later I find I have a special pih-dough. I have tried many different kinds of pillows such as memory foam, down, special shapes and curves promising comfort and relief. None really worked for me.

Then I read about the Hullo Pillow on a trusted website. I felt I had nothing to lose in view of the generous trial period. I liked the pillow right away. But in the weeks I have been using it, I have learned how to shape it just right for great sleeping. No more neck aches. Lots of support. Cool comfort. Now I have a special pih-dough–I love it.

True Relief from Headaches!

I have suffered from years of tension headaches and restless sleep. My chiropractor said that with my overly tense neck muscles it was pertinent to get a new pillow. I tried the temperpedic pillows for a while which only exacerbated my symptoms. My neck was still too small to use these pillows. It wasn’t until I came across Hullo pillows that I’ve experienced relief!!! It was odd at first to get used to sleeping on a buckwheat hull pillow but it truly does what it says it does! Provides support all through the night, even when I want to change sleeping positions. The hulls can make noise as I move positions but it has never bothered me or my husband.

I take this pillow with me everywhere now when I travel and truly believe it’s made a big impact on the amount of headaches I experience. I would recommend this to anyone who’s struggled to find the right pillow. Give it a try, it can make all the difference.

Better Sleep

I was waking up multiple times a night, having a hard time getting to sleep in the hot summer months, and had very sore shoulders. My wife and I bought a new mattress and Hullo pillows the same week. It took me five or six nights to get used to new pillow, but once I did, it made a huge difference. My neck and shoulders stopped aching. I started falling asleep faster because my head was not getting hot (these dissipate heat very well). And I started sleeping through the night, though that probably has as much to do with the new mattress as the the pillow.

I Love My Hullo

This is the best pillow I have ever owned.  I have neck/back problems and this has alleviated most of these problems.

I no longer wake up with any pain and get a much better sleep.  The pillow stays cool throughout the night which reduces my tossing and turning.  It has also helped greatly with nighttime snoring 🙂

Hullo is the Best!

I learned about the Hullo from an ad they placed on Loop Insight. Usually I don’t go for product placements, but in this case, I’m glad I did.

The Hullo has dramatically improved the way I sleep. I love that it can be shaped to fit my neck and sleeping posture.

The sound of the hulls hasn’t bothered me or my wife. To be honest, I’m not sure who would be annoyed by this, but it’s certainly not an issue for us.

I’m thinking about ordering them as holiday gifts for my parents and co-workers; the only thing keeping me from doing it is the cost of shipping to Hawaii.

Insomnia Starting to Get Better

I’ve tried a number of pillows over the years; cheap ones, expensive ones, latex foam ones.

All, even the “fancy” ones eventually just get lumps and I need to replace them. I tried foam because they wouldn’t end up with lumps but they don’t really hold my head in place and I feel my neck/shoulders tensing.

I’ve had insomnia (take 2-3 hours to fall asleep) for about 14 years.

It still take me a while to fall asleep but It’s been drastically improved with this pillow.

I sleep on my stomach and took out about half of the filling.

Highly recommended.

My Hullo to Better Sleep

I have tried down, memory foam, and synthetic down pillows, but none compare to my Hullo.  I sleep on my side and back and I love how this will confirm but still be supportive.   You adjust the firmness desired.  I also appreciate that is does not get hot  causing sweaty neck as I had with memory foam pillow and yet it stays supportive unlike my down pillows.  I get the best sleep.

You do need to get used to the noise of shells moving but now I do not notice and my husband never noticed.  There is no funny smell like the memory foam pillow.

Being able to take shells out of case and air out  in a box when I wash the cases is nice and eco friendly.

Thank you

You Can’t Have It Back!

I bought these pillows thinking I would give them an honest go and see how I felt after a few weeks. I figured my wife might not like them and then we’d return them after the trial period. I was very wrong.

She might like them even more than I do, which is saying a lot. In fact, they could set up a service where a person couldn’t purchase them, but rent them instead. I’d happily pay $5 a month to RENT a pillow. That’s how much I like it. Our necks don’t hurt anymore. When complimented with a great mattress, these pillows can change your sleep for the better.

Love This Pillow!

This pillow is the best!  I had pretty much given up on finding a pillow that works for me.  Now, I get a restful sleep every night and love how my head stays cool.  I had never heard about these kinds of pillows until I happened upon a NY Times article about pillows and several readers wrote in recommending the buckwheat pillow.  This pillow is genius. I  have recommended it to friends.

Finally Found the Perfect Pillow

Over the years I’ve spent hundred of dollars— from the cheap $10 ones to the the “hotel quality” ones in the hundreds of dollars range—and never found anything that helped me sleep more comfortably and more consistently night after night. My Hullo pillow is literally a game changer when it comes to my quality of sleep. So much so that after two days of raving my wife stole my pillow for the night and the next day we were ordering a second one for her.
