Finding a pillow just right for your specific needs can be painstakingly difficult and frustrating, driving you to the very brink of giving up completely, convinced that there truly is no such thing as the perfect pillow. Sounds familiar? As we, at Hex Valley Down, are well aware of the value of a good night’s rest, we have compiled a short guide to help you choose, yes, the perfect pillow.
Guide to buying a new pillow
Before you make your choice, consider the position you sleep in. The ultimate function of a pillow is to help keep your head in a neutral alignment with your spine, not bent too far forward or backward.
- Sleeping on your side: Make sure you buy a firm enough pillow that would wholly fill up the space between the side of your face and you shoulder.
- Sleeping on your back: You will need a softer pillow that will not push your head too far forward.
- Sleeping on your stomach: Find a very soft or thin pillow which you can also use as support under your stomach to prevent possible back pain.
- Still not sure: The Standard 4 and -5 pillows have been the most popular choice by the general public over the years.
We offer a wide variety of pillows either filled with down or a mixture of down and feathers. We highly recommend the mixture down and feather pillows as the feathers, due to their structure, are strong and able to support the weight of your head. Those who prefer a very soft pillow would find what they are looking for from our down pillow collection.
For all of our pillows we use a 100% pure cotton, down- and feather proof fabric to keep it natural and ensure none of the filling escapes or any shafts are protruding to prick the skin.
