What is Viet Nam Cotton Pillow ?
Cotton is soft and compressible although slightly more firm than traditional pillow filling like down or polyfill. New synthetic materials such as memory foam have relegated cotton to a minority position as pillow filling.
Advantages of Cotton Pillow Filling:
- free of the potentially toxic materials in many foam pillows
Disadvantages of Cotton Pillow Filling:
- with use, cotton can become lumpy and uncomfortable (it’s worth noting that it will resist clumping better than wool)
- not very moldable, does not hold its shape like down or buckwheat hull filling
