Are you ready for the ultimate Organic Travel Pillow? (Note: this was formerly called the Omni Pillow.) It was originally designed to provide as much versatility as there are methods of traveling. At 10x24 it's long and soft and supple - yet completely stuffable - and meets the demands of even the most hardened Wanderer! However, since introducing this pillow about 10 years ago, customers have continued to inform us of the plethora of other uses for this extraordinary pillow. To name a small few:
- Back pillow
- Neck pillow
- Pregnancy pillow
- Stuffed into the gap between an airplane seat and window pillow
- Tucked between your knees at night pillow
- Topper for reading in bed pillow
- Arm support pillow
- Napping pillow
- Small body pillow for adults
- Full size body pillow for kids
- Put over your face & eyes for sleeping pillow. (The co-owner's personal favorite and used daily as such. It's not so floppy and big that it will smother you but does an incredible job of shutting out the din of the world.)
Truly the list of posturing possibilities is endless. Give it a try and let us know of more ways you find our Travel Pillow to be your new best buddy.
Additionally, our Adjustable Loft feature allows you to customize the pillow to your 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.
