The kapok fibre comes from the fluffy seed covering of the kapok tree, also known as the silk cotton tree, which grows in tropical rainforests around the world. Our kapok fibre is grown naturally without chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. During harvesting, it is not washed or treated with any chemicals. The seed is mechanically separated from the fibre, just like Cotton Fiber is.
A zippered* opening allows you to easily remove stuffing to customize the loft of the pillow. Kapok fibre has a faint natural smell that may be noticeable when you first open the packaging. It will dissipate with time and airing.
Pillowcase required. Kapok pillows are not washable, but you can spot clean the surface with a damp cloth. Air out under the sun to eliminate odour and impurities. When adding or removing the kapok fill from your pillow, we recommend wearing a face mask to protect your airway.

"Having been combatting chronic neck pain for years I find it difficult to find pillows that don't aggravate the issue. Sleeping anywhere but my own bed can result in weeks of discomfort. The kapok Dr. Bill size pillow has been exactly right for me. It is the perfect size and offers great support for my neck. Being the small size that it is makes it easily transportable to virtually any destination so I never need to awake in discomfort again."
