Benefits of Shredded Latex Pillows

So, you might have heard of latex pillows, but you might be questioning what shredded latex pillows are. Since, more and more people are getting aware of latex pillows, let’s introduce you to another option for the best natural latex pillow.

In some  retail stores these types of pillows are called micro cushion pillows.

Latex and shredded latex can be all natural latex or a blend with synthetics. However, at My Organic Sleep, we dedicate our products to be completely natural without synthetic blends. We believe our pillows can work just as well as non-organic shredded latex, if not better.

Standard Latex pillows: These are usually made as one slab of latex. These pillows are made by utilizing a unique pin-core design to allow these pinholes in the pillow to deliver free air flows, preventing heat from building up.

Shredded latex pillows: These are made by shredding latex slabs into small pieces (about 0.5-1.5 inches long). The cut pieces are flexible and resilient in order to conform to body contours. The versatility offers varying degrees of support and pressure point relief. This enables comfortable, deep sleep.

Natural latex pillows are categorized into single zone and dual-zones. The single zone pillows have the same sized pinholes, which spread from the edges to the center of the pillow. Dual-zone pillows has two areas zones, which consist of smaller pinholes and bigger pinholes.  This variation in pin hole size changes the density, on the other hand, in dual zone pillows offer firmer edges and softer mid section. Take a look at below to understand the difference and what would be the best natural latex pillow for you.
