Most people probably haven't felt Kapok fill before so I will make a few general comparisons to help one understand what it feels like. First of all Kapok fill feels similar to silk and very similar to milkweed, as it is the fluff from a seedpod. When stuffed inside a pillow, Kapok has a soft, dense feel with a medium recovery time. It is not as lofty as down and has a slower recovery time, but provides more support to your head and neck while still feeling soft. It has a fuller feel than a silk pillow and offers more support and more loft. It does not have the buoyancy and recovery time of a latex pillow, but has a soft comforting feel and is shapeable. It is softer and lighter weight than a wool or cotton pillow and not nearly as dense. It is also more shapeable than cotton or wool. In comparison to a down alternative, it is similar in softness but the fill is freer inside the pillow making it more scrunch-able and giving it a more natural feel. I have not had it long enough to know how it will compress over time, but I have a feeling it will fair better than wool, cotton or down alternative fill.


  • Soft feel no matter what fill level
  • Supportive to head and neck
  • Very scrunch able, great for side sleepers
  • Maintains comfortable temperature, did not get hot while sleeping
  • Affordably priced for a natural fill
  • Hypoallergenic with all natural fill and organic cover – no chemicals or animal products in this pillow


  • Slight vinegar smell upon opening (dissipates within 24 hrs)
  • Not as lofty as down and has a slower recovery time


I got my new Kapok pillow in the regular fill and luckily the loft and fill weight was perfect for me. I didn’t really know what to expect when I took this pillow home. It felt soft yet dense at the same time, and I was somewhat excited yet apprehensive to sleep on it. I was previously use to sleeping with down alternative and for the last couple of year have been a huge fan of natural latex pillows in both soft and medium firmness (some nights I like more support than the soft delivers). To my surprise I slept all night without reaching for one of my old pillows! That is pretty amazing because sometimes it takes a night or two to get use to a new pillow feel. One of the first things that came to my mind when I started fluffing this pillow my first night of use, was that the fill feels like it could bunch up but so far it hasn't. Throughout the night I sleep in a variety of positions, back, stomach, side. This Kapok pillow felt great in each position providing support and superb comfort. I also like to have my arms under and around my pillow and this pillow was perfect for that! It was soft and conformed around my arm that was under it (which was great because my arm didn’t fall asleep) and it felt soft and full to support my head and neck and satisfy my arm that was hugging it. I am still new to using this Kapok filled pillow but so far it has been great. I wake up with a without a stuffy nose, I do not get too hot sleeping on it, and it works for every sleeping position. I always give the pillow a few fluffs before I go to bed, not because it needs it, but I like it to have a fresh, lofty shape when I go to bed. This pillow is very shapeable and tends to retain the general shape you left it in. Also, it is washable so you have the opportunity to have a pillow with clean fill and a fresh smell.
