Do you have a favorite type of pillow that you enjoy sleeping with? When it comes to pillows, people have a wide range of preferences. Some like them with medium support while others prefer firm. People may prefer down while others would rather sleep on down alternative. Pillows are essential to improving any sleeping experience, so it is important that you sleep with ones that help you relax and don’t make you feel stiff. Have you ever thought about all the different types of materials that they can be composed of? Some are made of cotton, polyester, feathers and much more. This blog will explain the different types of materials that pillows can be made with and highlight which type may be best for your property.
Down or feathered pillows are composed of feathers from the chest and underbelly of mainly geese. Those designed with this material are breathable, durable, and very fluffy. The feathers used in down designs can also make them very lightweight. The feathers are also very adaptable and can easily shift into particular shapes based on your sleeping pattern which can aid your overall sleep. However, the feathers used in down pillows can make them more expensive than other types, and they tend to absorb a lot of heat which can make it warm to sleep on, especially in the summer which could result in poor guest satisfaction.
Those designed with polyester are filled with tiny, artificial fibers and are a very popular option for both properties and personal use. They are very affordable and are easy to launder. Others have said that they tend to feel fluffy and can sleep very comfortably when using them. Many people also prefer them over down pillows because they are better for people who have allergies compared to the feathers used in down. However, the polyester material results in the pillow not being very durable and sometimes experiencing breathability issues especially when the weather gets warm.
Memory foam is a relatively new type of style. They are typically constructed with either block memory foam or shredded memory foam. Block memory foam is wrapped inside of a pillowcase, and shredded memory foam is placed inside of a pillow to help give it a soft and comfortable sleeping experience. One of the main benefits of memory foam is that they are engineered to relieve pressure that can be caused on the body when sleeping for extended periods of time. Memory foam is also not known for clumping. They are flexible, which allows them to easily adjust to the different body sizes and sleeping positions. However, the construction of the memory foam does not make it suitable for putting it through the washing machine and dryer. The aggressive washing and drying process will cause the foam to fall apart and make it unusable. There are other methods for cleaning memory foam such as using a vacuum cleaner.
Different Kinds of Pillow Covers
Most pillows have an inner material that is made of feathers, polyester, or memory foam. However, their coverings can be assembled with different materials. Many covers are 100% cotton, some form of a cotton polyester blend, or microfiber. It’s not something that many people give much thought to, but the composition of the cover is something you may want to review before making the final purchase for either yourself or your property.
