As the old saying goes, "When you make your bed, you sleep on it." And while it doesn't refer directly to sleep, it's hard to disagree with it. It might seem that in order to get a good night's sleep, a comfortable mattress tailored to our needs is enough, but it turns out that not only.
A properly selected pillow also guarantees the proper support of our body during sleep, and thus sleep. A properly supported cervical spine allows the muscles to relax and the airways to open, thanks to which we do not wake up in the morning with a sore neck, and at night we do not interrupt the silence with loud snoring. Whether the pillow fulfills its purpose depends on its filling. There are three types of fillings on the market: synthetic, foam, and natural.
The synthetic filling is usually granules, silicone fiber or polyester fiber. Their basic principle is universal availability and relatively low price. Pillows with such a filling are also suitable for allergy sufferers, do not cause allergies and can be easily washed in the washing machine, and thus kept clean. Unfortunately, the synthetic filling heats up easily and causes more sweating, especially on warm days.
Light as foam
Pillows filled with thermoplastic or latex foam adapt very well to the position of the head and neck, skilfully supporting them. They are especially recommended for people who like to sleep on their side. Their hardness may be a problem, they are not as soft as natural or synthetic pillows, so people who like to sink into the softness of the pillow are unlikely to be satisfied. They are suitable for allergy sufferers, although they cannot be washed in a washing machine and should be dry cleaned.
The long-known down pillow, still handmade by our great-grandmothers, is now a premium product. The excellent quality, softness and ergonomics of these types of pillows make them an ideal support for the head and neck during sleep. The down used for filling comes from geese or ducks. It is breathable, drains moisture and, thanks to its natural properties, ensures proper thermoregulation. Anyone who put their head to a down pillow at least once must have experienced this incredible softness and swiftly drifted off into the embrace of Morpheus. Down pillows available in H&H Solutions stores are filled with goose down, which is a very good insulator, and additionally guarantees the maintenance of optimal body temperature during sleep. Finished with gold trim, they are extremely elegant even without a pillowcase. What about allergy sufferers? They don't have to give up natural fillings. Pillows filled with alpaca wool are completely hypoallergenic. Alpaca fleece is free from mites and lanolin, which makes it ideal for allergy sufferers and people suffering from asthma. In addition, thanks to its natural properties, the pillows are thermoregulatory, they adapt to the temperature of our body, ensuring adequate thermal comfort.
