The shape of buckwheat hulls

Summer is approaching and nighttime temperatures are warming! A hot head can make it very hard to fall asleep and remain sleeping peacefully throughout the night. One of the added benefits of buckwheat pillows is becoming more apparent: they allow air to flow throughout the pillow.


The secret to the breathability these pillows is the shape of buckwheat hulls. Buckwheat hulls are pyramidal in shape. When piled together, like the inside a buckwheat pillow, there are spaces between the hulls. These pockets of air will help keep your head cool on warm nights. Air flow within buckwheat pillows also helps dispel any moisture from your head and pillow.

If you're traveling this summer, the ComfyTravel buckwheat pillow is a good companion. It's smaller size makes it easier to pack and having the comfort and support of a buckwheat pillow while traveling can make sleeping in new places easier. Last year Maggie took her ComfyTravel on a month-long trip in Germany.
