As Seen On Tv As Seen on TV Sobakawa Buckwheat Hull Pillow, Queen Size

The As Seen on TV Sobakawa Buckwheat Hull Pillow is uniquely constructed for a restful night's sleep. It's filled with 100-percent premium buckwheat hull that cradles the head and neck. Unlike foam, polyfill and feather pillows, the buckwheat hulls in this queen size pillow allow the free flow of cool air to provide restful and relaxing sleep. The hulls contour the body, providing optimal support, whether you're a side, back or stomach sleeper, aligning the neck and spine. Proper alignment, supported by the As Seen on TV neck pillow can help relieve muscle tension, back ache and head aches, for even greater overall benefits. The pillow has a polyester and cotton blend cover and a 100 percent premium buckwheat fill. At 29" x 19", it will easily fit any standard-size pillowcase for easy use. Handwash as needed; the pillow is not designed to withstand machine washing or drying.

No. I recommend you use a pillow protector under your pillow case. Make sure neither one holds the pillow too tight, or shaping it will be difficult to impossible.

I used a queen size pillow case with the regular size buckwheat pillow.

You don't want a tight fit, or you will not be able to shape it properly for your head and neck. It might also make the pillow too high to lay on comfortably.

It depends on what size pillow you purchase. No special pillow case is needed. However, I wouldn't recommend this product. It is a bean bag stored in a pillow shell. Not comfortable and makes a lot noise when moved or adjusted.

It will fit into a standard pillow case, but it has to be stuffed into a standard sized pillow protector (if you use one). That results in a pillow that might be is too high for your comfort. A Queen sized pillow protector works perfectly for me. Then a standard pillow case

Does the buckwheat hulls poke through the pillow (like the feather pillows)?

answer 1
No. The hulls do not poke through. I will say that my son, who loved his old feather pillow from childhood said this pillow seemed to feel the closest to the way that one felt for being able to scrunch it up and get it comfortable to your head and neck. The only difference I see is that this one stays scrunched where you put it and the feather pillow flattens out too quickly.

No you can feel the hull's if you pinch the pillow case but they do not poke through.
and when you are sleeping on the pillow you just feel a bead type of sensation that you get used to rather quickly.

No. It's the best pillow you will ever own. If it gets flat you just lift one end and shake once and it fluffs back up. Takes a little getting used to at first. It's unlike any other pillow, but once you get used to it you won't go back to a standard pillow.

My husband picked this pillow up for me. He said it was in a box and the sales associate offered to keep the box and he gave it to her bec it was so big. He said it was easier to deal with that way. The pillow is a bit heavy and it was easier to handle without the box. Hope this helps.

Question

Quality of Sobakawa's Wheat Hulls

Other wheat hull pillow makers say that their wheat hulls are superior to Sobakawa's. Other brands claim to triple wash and flatten their wheat hulls prior to putting them into their pillows.

Question: Does Sobakawa triple wash their hulls and flatten them like the other "better brands" say that they do?
I would like to know, please.

You might need to contact Sobakawa and get back with me on this one.

Many thanks. I appreciate it.

Best Regards, Richard in Texas

I have owned Sobakawa pillows for 10+years-originals purchased from Home Shopping Network. They are still in perfect condition and as far as I know, they were original makers. I just bought 2 more from Walmart and they seem to be same quality. I don't think there are any "better" brands. They have stayed clean, dust & odor-free for all these years and I cannot say that about regular fiber or down pillows I have owned.

Their flattened out alright but they easily smash between your fingers which under weight would make it a pillow of sawdust with regular use unless your head is very light or a kid uses this

If the hulls are flattened, they will be prone to slide along each other.

After you shape the pillow to your head and neck, rough hulls will hold that shape much better.

Buckwheat shells can burn, so there will probably not be a difference in flammability between the regular and queen sizes.
answered 2 years, 5 months ago
By

answer 3
No, it isn't flame retardant. In fact the instructions say to use it with its special pillow case only. I suspect these tiny air balls would melt very easily and so the pillow would burn.
Personally I am worried about breathing in the chemicals that would be used to make material flame retardant. So for a pillow I don't mind it not containing these chemicals, as long as there are no open flames near my head at night, I should be safe.
I wouldn't recommend smoking in bed for anyone even with flame retardant pillows.

Never have. I keep one of them about 3 years (I always use two pillowcases on my pillows) and then buy another Sobakawa and discard the old one. I absolutely love them. Been using them since 1995 - I'm on my 4th or 5th one now. My only fear is that they may get hard to find. They're great!
