My grand pillow experiment.
The fourth pillow, upper right, is shorter and stuffed with buckwheat hulls. I ordered it in July of 2011, and I just today opened the bag.
First of all, I think either the down alternative or the shredded foam pillow will do nicely as a replacement for old yucko there. I'll put both on the bed and see which one I reach for every night. That's fair, isn't it?
The buckwheat pillow will make a nice gift. I made some for the family 11 years ago and recently discovered some of them are still in use. Yikes! I don't use buckwheat pillows, they are just too noisy.
They were all a little messy to stuff, but the buckwheat hulls escaped the furthest and the shredded foam is the clingiest. The down alternative was like working with regular fiberfill, only slipperier.
