Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is the Saybrook® Adjustable Pillow suitable for side-sleepers? Back-sleepers? Belly-sleepers?

Yes, yes, and yes! The Saybrook® pillow can be adjusted to any loft or any firmness level desired, so it can be tailored to the bespoke fit of your preferred sleep style. For side-sleepers, the pillow can be adjusted to fit the shoulder gap and provide perfect support. For back-sleepers, the pillow can be adjusted so that you feel support without having your head pushed too far forward.

How do I adjust the Saybrook® Adjustable Pillow?

Start by unzipping the outer bamboo cover and the inner lining. You can then remove as much filling as you want. The more filling you remove, the lower the loft and the softer the pillow. Most people prefer to remove 1/3 to 1/2 the filling. If you like the loft but find the pillow is too firm, you can remove 2 - 5 additional handfuls of filling and then fluff the pillow back up to a higher loft.

How do I take care of my Saybrook® Adjustable Pillow?

We recommend using a pillowcase on top of the bamboo cover in order to keep the pillow clean. You can also machine-wash the bamboo cover on a delicates setting. We do not recommend washing the memory foam itself because memory foam can take a long time to dry. By using a pillowcase and washing the bamboo cover, the inner foam should not require washing. We also recommend putting the pillow into the dryer on a no-heat, gentle cycle every 2 - 3 months to keep the pillow fluffy.

What is the filling made from?

Saybrook® uses a special blend called Lion Down Alternative®. It is notably not made from real lions or real down as we are a cruelty-free company. Lion Down Alternative® contains precision-cut memory foam, microfiber plumes, and silicone gel beads. The memory foam provides viscoelastic support while the microfiber plumes mimic the softness of down. The silicone gel beads help with passive temperature control.

Is the memory foam CertiPUR-US® certified?

Yes, our memory foam is CertiPUR-US® tested and certified.

What makes the Saybrook® Adjustable Pillow better than other pillows?

The Saybrook® Adjustable Pillow can be adjusted to any loft or any firmness level you desire. Other pillow brands only offer one loft level and firmness level or they offer a selection of options at checkout. The Saybrook Adjustable Pillow can take on the entire range of options that will suit your sleeping preferences and body type, and it can be fine-tuned from the comfort of your own bed. While there are other adjustable pillow brands, we take pride in the quality of our special Lion Down Alternative® fill material and the quality of the bamboo cover to give you the best sleep experience. Poor quality imitations can feel lumpy and uneven, but Lion Down Alternative®provides the consistency you'd expect from a premium pillow.

What are the dimensions of the pillow?

The Standard/Queen size is 26''x18'' while the King size is 36''x18''. The loft is fully adjustable.

Do you recommend using a pillowcase with the pillow?

Yes, we recommend using a pillowcase on top of the bamboo cover to keep the cover protected. In fact, in the hospitality industry, it is best practice to use two layers of pillowcases to keep the pillows clean.

How long does it take for the pillow to fully expand after unpacking?

The pillow can take up to 24 hours to fully expand, though timing can depend on ambient temperature. In colder temperatures, the pillow may take even longer the expand. We recommend taking the pillow into an area that is at a comfortable room temperature (70 - 80 degrees F) to let it expand. You can also expedite the process by fluffing the pillow manually or in a dryer on a no-heat, gentle cycle for 60 minutes.
