What types of pillows are there?
As alluded to previously, we offer pillows made from both natural and man-made materials. Our eco-friendly pillows are sustainable and hypoallergenic, while our artificial pillows come in an array of styles for all needs.
Made from specialist anti-allergy materials, these types of pillows are ideal for those who suffer from allergies triggered by dust, canker, mites or pollen. They’re also particularly good for people who suffer from respiratory conditions such as asthma or COPD, which can easily be triggered by the presence of allergens. Anti allergy pillows are affordable and easily available. They come in a standard size and can take almost any kind of pillow case or cover. They are not always washable, but some types of anti-allergy pillow can be put through a cool wash. Replace regularly to prevent them from becoming dirty or soiled.
Memory foam pillows
Memory foam pillows are made from the same kind of memory foam as is used in memory foam mattresses. They are particularly good for those who prefer a slightly firmer pillow, and do not lose their shape or ‘flatten out’ over time. Memory foam pillows provide you with exceptional support, and respond to the shape of your head, neck and shoulders. They can be a little warm for some as memory foam does tend to retain heat, so look for options that incorporate cool gel if you prefer a cooler feel.
Natural pillows are made from natural materials, rather than man-made options. They are usually filled with feather and down from ducks to create a luxurious and exceptionally soft option. Wool is also used in the manufacture of natural pillows, which produces a slightly firmer option when compared to feather and down versions. Natural pillows are more expensive, but they do represent value for money as they’re long-lasting and resistant to mites and allergens. They can be easily restored to their initial shape by simply shaking to distribute the feathers and down evenly before use.
Luxury pillows are top-quality pillows that incorporate premium materials into their manufacture, such as Damask or Egyptian cotton covers, down filling, or additional extras such as a cool-touch finish. They can also be larger than the standard size, measuring up to 80cm x 80cm. Luxury pillows often fall under the category of ‘Hotel Quality pillows’, and are also available with microfibre anti-allergen fillings. You may pay a little more for a luxury pillow, but they represent real value for money as they last longer, are more supportive, and are less likely to lose their shape and their ‘bounce-back’ over time when compared to cheaper options.
Hollowfibre pillows are soft with plenty of bounce-back, making them super comfortable and longer lasting than fibres that flatten out over time. They provide exceptional levels of support and are ideal for those who suffer from neck or shoulder pain, or who prefer a slightly firmer feel. They’re also referred to as microfibre or polyester pillows and use fine fibres that are spun into a thicker, denser type of filling. They’re affordable and good value, making ideal pillows for guest bedrooms. To keep them at their best, give them a good shake occasionally to restore air pockets in between the microfibres.
Latex pillows use natural latex that’s incredibly supportive and comfortable. These pillows act in a similar way to memory foam pillows, but use natural materials rather than high-density foam. They’re breathable, naturally hypoallergenic, anti-microbial and prevent dust mites from taking up residence, making them ideal for sleepers who suffer from dust-triggered allergies or respiratory conditions such as asthma. Latex is breathable, so latex pillows offer a cooler, fresher feel that some people may prefer. They’re long-lasting and offer excellent support for the neck, head and shoulders. They also bounce back easily, and tend not to flatten out over time compared to cheaper, man-made options.
Octaspring pillows use the very latest in manufacturing technology to produce an incredibly comfortable, premium quality pillow. The key element with an Octaspring pillow is that it is up to eight times more breathable than a traditional memory foam pillow, making it cooler and fresher for longer. Octaspring was developed for the aerospace industry, creating a special foam that feels firmer and cooler, as well as providing optimised support for the neck, head and shoulders. Octaspring pillows represent the very best and latest in pillow technology, and are a worthwhile investment for a great night’s sleep.

What should I look for when buying a pillow?
We all know how important it is to choose the best pillows to buy. But how do you know that it’s the right pillow for you? One of the key factors to keep an eye on is the filling. From goose feather pillows to medical grade foam pillows from the very best pillow brands, our easy to navigate website makes finding your next bed pillow a walk in the park.
Pillow firmness is also important – just how soft do you want your pillow to be? Firmness levels run in the same way as their mattress counterparts, from soft to extra firm, each with their own characteristics. Those at the softer end of the scale are the best pillows for back and stomach sleepers, while an extra firm pillow is perfect for soothing neck pain.
What are side sleeper pillows?
If you sleep on your side, the most important thing to consider is the amount of support your pressures points require. Finding the best pillow for shoulder pain can help with this. As the side sleeping position forces the hip and shoulder closest to the mattresses to sink in, it adds tension to that side of the body which needs to be supported.
To receive this additional support, the best pillow for side sleepers tend to be thicker in design, helping to achieve the spinal alignment required for a comfortable sleep.
What pillows do hotels use?
Ever found yourself wondering what it is about hotel pillows that make them so comfortable? The secret lies in the filling. The pillows used by Hilton and similar hotels tend to feature down and feather hybrid pillows, the likes of which can be found in our range. These luxury pillows will have you fully rested up and feeling ready to tackle the day ahead.
Pillows from hotels are kept extra fresh and cleaned regularly, giving them that extra sparkle. To keep your pillows in mint condition, remember to give them all the care they need, washing and changing pillow cases regularly and engaging in pillow sanitization when necessary.
