Bucky Buckwheat Hull Bed Pillow -- 1 Pillow

The natural choice for healthy restorative and ergonomically correct sleep. Buckwheat hull pillows maintain proper spinal alignment while keeping you comfortable and your muscles fully relaxed. Buckwheat hulls are triangular in shape and grip together under weight providing cozy stable support. They allow ventilation providing you with a cool and dry pillow all night. Bucky only uses premium natural hulls that are hypoallergenic and eco-friendly. The pillowcase and liner have concealed zippers that allow you to adjust the height and density of the pillow to your own comfort level. The super soft 100% cotton pillowcase is removable and machine washable.

It will keep your head COOLER, but takes adjusting
 February 5, 2014
"I have what the chiropractor called a "military neck" - it's straight as can be without a curve. He also seemed to imply that this was not a good thing. My memory foam pillow eventually "forgot" where it was supposed to be, so I thought, "Buckwheat... that will adjust wherever I put it." And it does, BUT I'm the one who has to put it how I want it. It seems to take a lot of adjusting before I'm really happy with it, whereas with the memory pillow, all I had to do was lie down. So... my conclusion is memory foam for the winter, buckwheat for the summer. This does appear to be a fine buckwheat pillow, and if you like buckwheat, I imagine you'll be very happy with this one."

Incredible pillow
 May 24, 2013
"I have several buckwheat eye pillows and I love and use them everyday, I never thought about a pillow for my head. My Buckwheat pillow is way better than the memory foam $100 pillows I have. I will admit, I was expecting a standard size pillow instead of the smaller size about 5" shorter. When my back hurts I lay on it and it does help the buckwheats adjust to my head and to my back. I am very happy with my purchase."

Better than Sobakawa!
 August 1, 2012
"I have had long-standing neck problems (C1 and C2 alignment problems, lead to headaches and stiffness) and a year or so ago I switched from a standard pillow to the Sobakawa "bead" pillow. I was amazed. Much less pain and just more comfortable. Then I saw this pillow and read the reviews and figured I'd try it out, as the casing for my Sobakawa was stretching and thus losing some of the support. I have to say, despite the noise (which you really do get used to) it's a great pillow! 4 stars instead of 5 only because it's a bit smaller than standard so my pillowcase doesn't fit it very nicely. But it's heavy so I guess if it was bigger it would only be heavier. A great supportive pillow for back and side sleepers (probably too dense for stomach sleepers, but what do I know). Not really made for travel, but they make a smaller travel pillow for that. I definitely recommend this pillow!
(Also, no smell at all coming from the buckwheat hulls, in case you were wondering.)"

Best Pillow Ever
 July 18, 2011
"The Bucky Pillow is really the best pillow I have ever slept on. It conforms to the head and neck and I am sleeping better and more soundly. The Pillow also has a nice weight to it.
My fiancee is thrilled because now I have my own Bucky pillow and am not always trying to steal his."

"I bought this to replace a buckwheat pillow that was getting old. It is very comfortable, well made and has a lot of filling in it. I think Bucky makes quality products."

worth every penny
 July 28, 2010
"Needed a new pillow and read a lot of reviews on this bucky pillow. I found so many good comments, that I ordered it. It came good smelling in a beautiful carry bag and I have enjoyed every minute on it so far.
You can form it the way you want it and it stays that way. If you need to change position during the night, the filling forms easy with one little effortless push. It makes a sound when you put your head on but that has never bothered me (the children enjoy the sound it makes). It is smaller than your usual sleeping pillow, but somehow is just the right size. It has its own pillowcase (white and good quality). The husks are in a separate white case (good quality) with a zipper and it can be washed after taking the buckwheat out. Vitacost has the best price.

Great pillow

"Love this pillow. It is so comfortable! I like it better than my expensive foam pillow. Because the buckwheat hulls move, it gives me the support where I need it."
