    This premium, Form-Fit buckwheat hull pillow provides firm but comfortable support, right where you need it. This is no ordinary buckwheat hull pillow. The plush, quilted shell and blended filling (shredded foam) makes for a comfortable buckwheat hull pillow that stays right where you set it. The unbleached cotton cover helps dissipate moisture and heat while keeping four gallons of soft, quiet buckwheat fill in position all night long. It fits inside any standard pillowcase, eliminating the need to worry about purchasing specialty covers. The lightweight, flowable, semi-rigid premium buckwheat hull fill allows good air flow all night,ensuring your pillow stays cool during summer and warm during winter. The shape is just right for CPAP users, and the pillow is easily adjustable for side, back and stomach sleeping. Note: Buckwheat hull pillows are smaller than standard pillows due to weight considerations. But there is plenty of thickness to provide firm support right where you want it, all night.
     

    Features:

     

    · Specialty semi-rigid pillow is ideal for CPAP users

    · rayon from bamboo, quilted shell ensures your pillow is always fresh

    · Includes about 5-gallons of hypoallergenic buckwheat hulls, retains shape and maintains comfort

    · Moisture-absorbent shell is soft and quiet for a better night's sleep

    · Lightweight pillow fits any standard pillowcase, stays cool in summer and warm in winter

    · Soft, flowable buckwheat conforms to your body and bed for contoured support

    · Cervical-area stays in place for back sleepers

    · Machine washable for convenient and easy care

     Dimensions:

    · Vertical side panels: 4 inch high for side sleepers

    · Overall dimensions: 18 inches long x 13 inches wide x 4 inches deep

      

    Filling: The form-fit pillow ships with about 5 gallons of filling in a separate bag, more filling than you need. You do NOT need to use all of the filling provided. A convenient storage bag is included for easy transfer of extra buckwheat hulls. For side sleepers, a relatively large volume is most desirable. A moderate volume works best for back sleeping. A low volume is recommended for stomach sleepers.

      I am not prone to write product reviews but can't help myself on this one. I have been on something of a personal quest for the perfect pillow for many years. I sleep part on my back and part on my side so it's really hard to find a pillow that works well for either position.Having tried all kinds--shapes, sizes, materials (even two different buckwheat hull pillows), I bought this because I've never seen anything quite like it. I like my other buckwheat hull pillows enough but they are hard (make my ears sore) and they make a lot more noise than you might think, especially for side sleeping.Well, this pillow is amazing. It's quiet and soft, for one thing. But even more important, you can get just the right amount of support exactly where you want it--it's easy to slosh the hulls around the pillow--but once you get it right, they stay in place. It's like the direct down pressure just locks them in place and they don't move much, once you get the elevation and shape just how you want it. So the pillow CONFORMS to ME instead of expecting me to conform to the pillow. I've never been able to do that with a pillow.But the best part--that side panel works double wonders. When I am on my side it fills the whole space in the neck-shoulder-head area--very cozy. But on my back I just shake down the hulls and create a little nest for the very back of my skull--and that side panel forms the most amazing cervical support pillow I've ever used. Wow.I highly recommend this pillow for anybody who has been on the search for best pillow--

      In the Box: - Pillow (empty) - Bag of Buckwheat Hulls (for stuffing the pillow) First Impression: My first impression was that the pillow is very well made, quilted, and of good material. The appearance is that it is very high quality. Filling the Pillow: (Be careful! Those hulls can get everywhere.) I used a large (2 cup) measuring cup to fill the pillow. I used approximately 3/4s of the hulls. Obviously you can put in less or more depending on your preference. Once the pillow is full, the zipper closes nice and tight. I have had no leaks. Sleeping: With the hulls in the pillow, it is semi-heavy (definitely not light) which is what I prefer. With a little pressure, you can get the pillow into the position/shape that you like. It tends to keep its position/shape during normal use. Noise: I was originally concerned that the hulls moving would be noisy. This has turned out not to be a problem. It is quiet. Definitely quieter than something like a bean bag. Allergies: I don't have any allergies but my wife does. Neither of us has had any issues with this pillow. Bottom Line: I've been using this pillow for a week or so now. I'd definitely recommend this pillow to anyone who prefers a heavier pillow, does not move the pillow around during sleep, and likes neck and shoulder support from the pillow. I'll be sending more to family members as gifts.

      Wow! Now before you walk away thinking this is some kind of gimmicky pillow, please know that I've been fighting with pillows for a very long time. I've got allergies, a bad neck and back. I absolutely love these pillows (purchased 2 from Overstock.com). You don't even have to fill the casing completely with the hulls. I used about 1/2 of the bag. Somehow these things just snuggle around your head and give your neck the support it needs. If you want a soft, non-supportive pillow, keep going. But if you need a firm, supportive pillow--this is your new pillow. As an added bonus for me, I love the rustling sound of the hulls...it's just a pleasant sound. In the last 6 weeks, I've completed revamped my bedding thru this website, and I have nothing but great reviews for everything!

      Option: 18 inches x 13 inches

      I have been searching for the perfect pillow practically my whole life. As a teenager I fell out of a truck and had a major neck injury so I am not a typical back or side sleeper. I move from back to side to side through the night and regularly experience neck, shoulder and back pain. It's very hard for me to get comfortable. With this premium buckwheat hull pillow, I can adjust it to sleep comfortably in any position I wish. When I sleep on my back I just shake it down and create a nest space for the back of my head and that leaves plenty of hulls supporting my neck. When I sleep on my side, I simply plump it up to create full support for my neck. It takes just a second--and by now it's automatic so I usually don't wake up. Once adjusted it stays in perfect place and my neck is completely aligned. No more neck aches. No more shoulder pain. Other back or side sleeping pillows don't work for the other position. This pillow gives me the freedom to sleep how I want and the pillow does not dictate to me how I must sleep. It took a bit of trial and error to find the optimum amount of hulls to put in the pillow (I started with too little) but once I figured that out it was well worth the effort. The instructions are very helpful. It is now my Personal Perfect Pillow. Thanks Overstock!

      I've only had my new, sweet buckwheat pillow for a few days now, but I already know I made a great choice! I LOVE this pillow!!!! I really wasn't sure whether I should replace my old pillow, but the quilted cover and box shape of this one combine to make itso much better than my old buckwheat. It isn't even close. I sleep so great now! Being a side-sleeper, I really appreciated the enormous amount of buckwheat provided - in spite of filling my pillow completely as full as I need, I still have about 1/3 my bag left, so as they settle I will keep it topped off, perfectly full, comfortable and wonderful. I can't believe they haven't thought of this before. This is an AWESOME pillow! If you have ever tried buckwheat in the past, or you sleep on it now, or even if you haven't, you simply owe it to yourself to give this one a try. It is the best pillow I've ever had, and it will be the last pillow I ever buy. Thanks Overstock! You guys rock!

      After 20 years, I threw away my old buckwheat hull pillow and bought this Premium Buckwheat Hull Pillow. What a difference...it's quieter (quilted cover muffles the "crunch") and wa-a-ay more comfortable. It came with explicit instructions on how much of the buckwheat to put into the quilted case, depending on whether you're a back, side, stomach, or a combination sleeper. I used about two-thirds of the hulls and have the rest stored for future use. Great pillow, excellent instructions, and worth the money. And, as always, outstanding service from Overstock.

      Verified Purchase
      Option: 18 inches x 13 inches

      The product information doesn't say anything about how clean the hulls are and includes some information about how to sterilize the hulls. This can be misleading. I asked the manufacturer and received the following: "The hulls are sourced from a specialty processing facility that provides a variety of buckwheat products to the food services industry. As a result, the buckwheat it purchases is subject to stringent requirements and the mill is certified USDA food grade. The hulls are an important byproduct of buckwheat and are carefully processed for the buckwheat pillow markets. I understand that the cleaning process includes screen sifting to remove small particles and electrostatically charging and tumbling the hulls prior to cleaning, followed by a negative air-flow process to remove any residual flour or dust. Having sold thousands of pillows over the years we have yet to hear of a complaint about the hulls. They are the best on the market. The reference to sterilization is a generic comment that relates to any buckwheat hull pillow: It is not intended to suggest that the pillow needs to be sterilized for any reason." -Bret Randall, Manager, Pur-Sleep, Inc The Website **** states: "Our premium buckwheat hulls are sourced from the finest North American suppliers. They are clean, dust free, and hypoallergenic." Great pillow!

      Option: 18 inches x 13 inches

      My boyfriend and I have been in search of the elusive "perfect pillow" for years. We succeeded when we purchased our mattress (elsewhere), but kept finding pillows that felt nice at the store but we'd bring them home and after just a few weeks, we'd be back to stiff necks & pain upon waking. I had seen much smaller buckwheat pillows in Japantown (here in SF), and was intrigued- how could something so "hard" be something one would want to sleep on? I read everything I could about these pillows and they seem perfect for the aches and pains we were feeling from regular pillows. Feeling a little crazy one night, I splurged and bought us both a buckwheat piillow! I am SO HAPPY. This pillow cradles my neck, provides support where I need it, and is so squishable I can pretty much have it either be soft or firm or soft here and firm there. It's a standard size pillow and they send plenty of hulls to fill it with. Ours are both about 2/3 full and we're saving the rest if these flatten out a bit. Another thing I read was that they get quieter as you use them more- the buckwheat gets smoother from impaction? My daughter was having a hard time sleeping in her bed a few nights back, so I asked her if she wanted to sleep with me so I could rub her back. As I was rubbing her back (her head on the new buckwheat pillow) she asked 1. what she was sleeping on and 2. why I hadn't gotten her one!!! So, a 3rd has been ordered and we are counting the days until she gets hers.

      When I used to fly to Japan for work, I was never able to sleep on the hotel buckwheat pillows because they were crunchy feeling, loud and "one size fits all". I definitely prefer this "American" style. It has a nice thick cover which makes it softer and much quieter and, being able to customize the amount of fill to fit your personal sleeping style, really makes all the difference! It took several adjustments before I finally got the right amount of fill, so don't give up...it may take several tries. The cover is well made and the gusseted sides keep it from going flat. The hulls are very clean...absolutely no dust...which is a real bonus for those of us with allergies. I am now sleeping more soundly, no longer waking up with a stiff neck and, I swear, I'm dreaming more! There is definitely an improvement in my quality of sleep and I have also noticed an improvement in my TMJ. If you want a soft fluffy pillow, this is not for you. But if you want a pillow that you can "customize" to properly support your head and neck, then I highly recommend this pillow.

      I love this pillow! My friend recommended this buckwheat hull pillow as I have such problems staying asleep. I toss and turn all night unable to find a comfortable position for my neck and jaw (I have had TMJ alignment problems for years). I have tried many pillows, searching desperately to relieve the pain in my neck, jaw and stiffness in my shoulders. Somehow the pillow forms to your head and can position to anchor your neck in such a way that your head is aligned with your body. You will have to get use to the slight crispy sound of the hulls, but in one or two days you forget completely about it.The pillow comfortably cradles your head and neck in any position that you choose. And I love that I can control how dense, or how soft the pillow is stuffed. This vendor really delivers a quality product. The outer shell is very high quality: thick, durable fabric with fine stitch work and a good zipper. It is obvious that these pillows were painstakingly made and will last years.I am ordering a second one to use as a lower back support as I find myself favoring it when I sit in my recliner as well. The pillow size is perfect, any bigger would be too heavy. I made a mistake not ordering the custom pillow cases with my order the first time. That is something you may want to consider as well. I'm recommending they create a travel size pillow also. I will be the first in line to purchase it! Thank you for a great product!I could not believe how quickly the product arrived in shipping. Again, thank you.

      Okay, this pillow isn't as large as it should be. It's larger than a normal travel pillow, smaller than a regular/standard pillow; but it does keep your head cool and your neck supported.

I sleep on front, back and both sides, and it works for all. I only used about two thirds of the filling... with all it was too hard. I have not found it to be noisy - and use a regular pillow case with it - although it is smaller than a standard pillow. I would not call it a miracle, but have noticed significant improvement in headaches and shoulder pain. Ii is definitely worth a shot if you have neck problems.

      I have been recommending this pillow to everyone I know. I had been using a contoured pillow for the past 3 years and recently had been getting very poor sleep, waking up and flipping completely over from one side to the other, and sometimes even waking up with my hands completely numb. With this new pillow I am sleeping very deeply, waking rested in the morning, and can now sleep on my back as well as my side. I have a long neck and broad shoulders, so I am very comfortable using all of the buckwheat in the pillow. I find the size of the pillow to be sufficient, even though it is smaller than a typical pillow. I don't have to readjust when I change my position. The sound of the buckwheat is sufficiently muffled by the quilted cover, just a gentle rustling, which I find soothing. My husband has been eyeing my new pillow, so I may be purchasing another soon.

      I was disappointed first that the product was purchased and stated that is was delivered but unfortunately it did not arrive. However, Overstock.com rectified the problem and reshaped the pillow. In the meantime I wanted it for my husband so I paid for another one. It arrived at the same time. My feedback is there is foam fill AND buckeye hulls but NO zippered pillow case. Just a quilted cover? What happens when the quilted cover requires washing. All of the buckeye bulls and the foam full goes “where”? Recommended improvement: INCLUDE a zippered pillowcase AND the Quilted Pillow cover for a complete product!

    • Q:

      "Is the filing of the standard pillow only buckwheat hulls or is it a blend of foam and buckwheat? How many pounds of buckwheat are included and is it enough filling to sufficiently fill the pillow without also using foam? "

      • A:

        I have one from about 3.5 years ago that is 100% buckwheat hulls. My husband finally wanted to try one last year when he was waking with neck and shoulder pain. He got the standard pillow which has the foam/buckwheat mix. There is very little difference in the feel of the pillows. We liked it well enough to buy two spares. The ones we received in August do have 3% foam with the buckwheat hulls, according to the label. The packing list shows that these were the standard pillows. If the foam is an issue, just buy the buckwheat refill packs on Overstock and put that in the case. Refill will be needed eventually anyhow and picking the foam out would be a pain, the buckwheat hulls stick to the foam (I'm guessing static). We have put an additional zip- up pillow cover on as the zipper occasionally opens just a tiny bit and some of the buckwheat hulls start to sneak out. That keeps any escapees controlled! Otherwise, just pin the zipper tab to the case with a safety pin.

        Filling is both. Filling is already mixed. Buckwheat shells is sufficient depending on how full you want it. My husband is a big guy, so we filed it more than suggested for his sleep position.
