What is the difference between buckwheat and millet hulls?
Both pillows are equally firm, with the exact same neck support, the main difference lies in the texture of the filling:
Buckwheat hulls are large hulls that trap a lot of air which is then blown through the pillow when we move in our sleep. Buckwheat hulls rustle when we move. Millet hulls are tiny, they make no sound when they move and the filling feels smooth and velvety.
Millet hulls are not softer than buckwheat hulls, but they do feel more velvety because they are so tiny, round, and smooth.
All hull pillows are temperate (they do not take on heat in the summer or cold in the winter). Buckwheat hulls ventilate more easily given their large irregular shape. This will make a difference for those who tend to perspire at night and wake up to a damp pillow every morning).
Sachi buckwheat and millet hulls are domestically sourced. The pillow is hand made in Albuquerque, NM.
