Product Overview

This 14" x 20" small buckwheat hull pillow is the standard Japanese pillow size. Price will vary based on fill amount. The recommended fill amount is 3.5 to 4 pounds of hulls, see our chart for how thick these weights are. While being much smaller than a conventional pillow, you don't really use a whole pillow normally!

Buckwheat hull pillows are very popular in Japan, so this seemed like a good size to start with. This pillow gets our second recommendation for most people. If you have narrow shoulders or a small head, consider this size. The maximum weight of hulls that this pillow will hold is 6 pounds, so adjusting by half pounds or less will be noticeable. Even at 3.5 pounds, the pillow is approximately 2" thick. This size of pillow is good for most people but if you're concerned about the thickness, you can use a thin conventional pillow underneath your buckwheat pillow to raise it up, or put it on top to add some softness.

The smaller size doesn't give the buckwheat hulls very much room to move while you sleep, so once they lock into place under the weight of your head, they tend to stay there for the night. If they do shift and you find it uncomfortable, simply pick up your pillow by the long edge furthest from your shoulder to let the buckwheat hulls gather at the bottom, lay it back down and rest your head on it. See how to fluff the pillow then come back here to order.

All of our pillows are made with 100% cotton downproof ticking and filled with the hulls of Canadian-grown buckwheat. 

Add an outer pillow case!
The outer pillow case is open on one end like a standard pillow case so you can wash it more frequently than the inner zippered case. The fabric is the same high quality 100% cotton downproof ticking that we use for the zippered pillow case.

    Headache Reliever!

    Posted by Lisa on Apr 04, 2014

    Great quality construction and fast shipping, but, more importantly this has totally relieved my AM headaches and neck pain! I used to frequently wake up with really painful tension in my neck along with a headache, since using this pillow it hasn't happened once. Very comfortable, doesn't feel too hard and I love that you can squish it into any shape you need.

    Excellent return policy

    Wonderful pillow but just too hard for me. When I realized that I needed to return it I contacted the company and they happily returned my money. Excellent return policy.
