I initially saw these bamboo pillows with shredded memory foam filling at a home show. I was very impressed with the quality and how soft they felt. We were heading out for dinner after the show and I didn’t want to carry two pillows all over town, so I was pleased to find out from the representative that they are available on Amazon.com.
We had been looking for new pillows for a little while and these bamboo pillows by Coop Home Goods (Amazon.com link) really fit the bill. I am a side sleeper and my husband is a back sleeper and the rep assured us that the pillow would work for both of us. I liked that the fabric was partly made of bamboo, which I know has a wicking effect and will help you stay cool while you sleep. The pillow are made in the USA and that made me a lot more comfortable buying these pillows.

It is obvious that a lot of thought has been put into designing a breathable pillow that keeps you cool at night. The fabric is made of 60% polyester and 40% bamboo that has a cooling effect. It feels like a down pillow but the inside is made up of shredded memory foam. The little pieces of memory foam makes for a much more breathable pillow than a regular memory foam pillow where the molded piece inside seems to be a magnet for heat. In the past I would have to flip the pillow a few times every night but this one keeps my head cool the entire night.
You can fluff up the pillow and make it bigger or thinner – just like a down pillow. The pillow is quite tall, approximately 7 inches, but the filling can be adjusted any way you like it. The memory foam is of high quality and will not go flat over time. We have had our for over three months now and they still feel like the day we got them.
Made in USA
I try to buy products that are made in North America to support local manufacturers and this was actually one of the main reasons why I bought these particular pillows. I love the fact this is a product that is made in the USA. The pillows are manufactured in California that has some of the strictest bedding laws in the entire country.
Great for people with allergies
If you or your spouse suffers from dust mite allergies or are hyperallergic and this causes you problems at night then you should have a closer look at this pillow. It is both hyperallergic and dust mite resistant helping you sleep a lot better.
Adjustable to your style of comfort
I am a side sleeper and this pillow is just made for me. You’d think that they measured my head and made a pillow from these measurements. It is perfect for sleeping on your side and gives you great support. My husband on the other hand sleeps on his back. At first he thought the pillow would be too tall but then he just pushed some of the filling to the side. Now he says it is the best pillow for back sleepers and that it is the best pillow he has ever had. If you happen to be a stomach sleeper then just flatten the pillow to your liking. It is very adjustable, just push the filling aside.
I just washed our pillows for the first time. You are supposed to wash your pillows every three to six months, so it was about time I got it done. I used the gentle cycle, hot water (instructions say to use cold water, but I am freaked out about dust mites, so I always use hot water for bedding) and eco nuts instead of laundry detergent. Then I put the pillows in the dryer at medium heat with a couple of dryer balls. It was easy and they didn’t get flat or anything after the wash.
When I first opening the bags up and pulled out the first pillow, I thought it had just arrived from a farm. It smelled like hay. I quickly put both pillows in the dryer before the whole bedroom smelled like a petting zoo. After a few minutes in the dryer I checked to see if the smell was gone. There was still a tiny hay scent, but nothing like when I first opening the bag. I took my chances and made the bed with my bamboo sheets and my new pillows. When we went to bed that night I had forgotten all about the smell and didn’t notice any smells at all.
I am very pleased with my purchase. This is by far the best pillow I have ever slept on. It is comfortable no matter if you prefer to sleep on you back, side or stomach. It does not get thin and is machine washable. And the best part is that it is made in the USA! I did a lot of comparison shopping before I ended up buying two of these bamboo pillows with shredded memory foam. You will not get better value for your money.
