It is so important in a child's early growing years to give them an appropriately-sized pillow. Pillows too high or too low not only cause discomfort but interfere with those vital deep sleep phases desperately needed for full restoration and health. At 16x22 our Child Pillow is ideal for the smaller necks and bodies of the younger toddler. Designed for ages 4-5 years, it provides that little bit of lift just when they begin to need it most.
Additionally, our Adjustable Loft feature allows you to customize the pillow to your child's specific needs via an invisible zipper on one end. Simply unzip, add or remove any amount of fill you deem ideal, then zip closed. Easy. Fast. Perfect.
Because all pillow fills relax and lose some loft with use, this feature also indefinitely extends the life of the pillow. "Topping up" when needed becomes the new norm vs throwing away and buying new - a value you and our environment will both appreciate. Purchase extra Flex-Fill here.
With ALPC Organics we have combined the beauty of our Adjustable Loft system with our certified eco-friendly Flex-Fill (TM) and a 100% Organic Texas-Grown Cotton. We even know from which farmer this luscious USDA certified organic cotton originates! Additionally, the fabric is a KNIT vs a traditional woven percale. Not only did knit turn out to have an amazing feel and softness but also a significantly smaller carbon and resource footprint.
Keeping the transportation carbon footprint small is another contributing factor to the earth-friendliness of ALPC Organics. Here is a quick peak into that local USA supply chain:
Organic Cotton Cover: Grown in Texas > Spun and knitted in North Carolina
Recycled Flex-Fill: Made in South Carolina
Thread: Made in North Carolina
Zipper: Made in Georgia
We highly recommend washing and drying your pillow inside a pillowcase. This will add a layer of protection against any potential snagging. For smaller pillows, use a standard, queen or king pillowcase and tie or rubber-band it closed. For adult size pillows, insert the zipper-end first into the case.
Then, using any detergent, machine wash on cold. No need to wash on warm or hot. Modern detergents work equally, if not better, on cold. Hot temperatures can also cause some residual shrinkage of the 100% cotton we use. The same rule applies for machine-drying: choose a low or medium setting for best results.
Adding a couple of tennis balls or dryer balls to your dryer will help loosen the fill and allow it to dry faster and more evenly.
Once out of the dryer, reshape the pillow by grabbing two corners and vigorously thumping it; repeat with the opposite corners. Roll or knead to finish the fluffing and reshaping.
NOTE: The ALPC Organic knit fabric will tighten in the dryer so gently stretch as needed to return it to the original size.
