Have you ever considered Buckwheat pillows?
I have had one for the past 15 years and they are fantastic. No off-gasing, nor synthetic materials to be concerned about. Very firm and shape to your head and neck providing ample support. i would highly recommend trying one!Smile

I'm a very happy buckwheat pillow user, after trying all kinds of cheap and expensive pillows (up to $270) I finely found my pillow. I've had major surgery to back and neck because of a parachute accident and sleeping can be painful when I'm not in the correct position.

I bought me a buckwheat cushion from the yoga shop and sleep better then ever before.

Buckwheat pillows, I must say I have never heard of such a thing. Where can one locate these Buckwheat pillows? I guess Google will become my friend.

Thanks for the links. I just watched a video and some guy saying you can add or remove the hulls depending on how stiff you want the pillow. If that's true I wonder if you can order the hulls as well?

I just ordered a new high tech pillow from a TV ad...MYPILLOW.com and it should be here today...I,ll test it out and see if it "really changed my life" (as the TV ad says it will)...it says to put it in the dryer on high to reform it and add air to the interlocking foam pieces....I have had the memory foam (not for me)Duck feather (not bad) and a foam pellet (pretty good) and I do have a small buckwheat neck pillow (kind of crunchy)but it is cool to the touch and does form up nicely.

Sure you can, I bought a sack of 30 pounds for $45 a few months ago. When you fill up your pillow put as many in as possible because after a few days it will set and be about the right thickness. Besides the links given by celestino you can find them at many yoga online shops.

As Ron has stated, you should be able to find the Buckwheat husks and put them inside of your pillow as long as you have a zipper or other contraption to hold the husks so that they don't fall out. Velcro would work as well.
Good luck and let us know how you find it if you go this route. Smile
