We were inspired by the buckwheat pillows that originated in Japan centuries ago. After spending time with real people learning about their sleep and testing prototypes, we developed Hullwinkle. It won’t slip away from you during the night, and you won’t end up sleeping uncomfortably in dead spots or on big bulges of pillow fill. The patent-pending chambered construction enables the pillow to contour itself to you, helping you melt into a deep, secure, and restorative sleep.
I have bought new pillows constantly over the last 20+ years looking for one that is supportive but comfortable. When I received the pillow, it took a few days to adjust, but the support for my neck and head is really outstanding and I have been sleeping excellent with it! I am a side sleeper so it has been challenging finding a pillow that properly supports my head and neck and it is really amazing how the pillow is firm, but yet still conforms to make it very comfortable and you can tell is very high quality. Best sleep I've had in years and I highly recommend it!
We can all use a good, uninterrupted night's sleep to restore our physiologic systems. Two things that can significantly reduce a quality night's sleep are chronic pain and instability of the neck. As a physical therapist that has issued these pillows to clients in need, I have heard nothing but positive remarks. The pillow is firm enough to prevent your head from sinking into the material and "rolling around." When one has cervical instability, muscle spasms and nerve impingement can be common symptoms that develop over a long period of time due to the dysfunctional movements of the head and neck. To date, my clients have reported a significant reduction in their neck pain, reduced burning/tingling/numbness in the hands, and reduced nightly wakings. I do believe that this product is a worthy purchase.
I purchased this on a total whim, both for my mother and for myself. My mother is a picky sleeper and after a week she absolutely loved this pillow. I was looking for a more firm, stable, and grounding place to rest my head and this pillow is it. In the recent heat wave we had, I was surprised by how much my head and neck stayed cool and didn't sweat. I also have much less neck pain (that I used to get frequently and led to migraines).
I have two other buckwheat pillows, from another company, that I love and use, so I am familiar with the concept of sleeping on this type of pillow. I even have a travel size, that I can take with me when traveling by car.
I was caught by the simple beauty of this pillow when I saw the ad, and while I was initially put off by the price, I decided to invest in one because my old ones have lasted so long.
My Hullwinkle arrived the day after purchase, and I have only had it a few days. It is heavy and firmly filled. I made a hole for my head in it, and was asleep in minutes. I felt cool and comfortable, and awoke without a sore neck or headache, which I get from soft pillows. I may remove some hulls, just to reduce the height a little.
Thank you for my very nice new bedtime buddy.
I bought my Hullwinkle on a recommendation. I was skeptical about the claims as I always have trouble sleeping, but now after a month of use I can absolutely confirm that this pillow works!!! Pillow is super comfortable, I sleep through the night and rarely wake. Will add that I'm in menopause with hot flashes these haven't woken me in the middle of the night since I started using this pillow. Love that it's holistic without chemicals or fillers... This pillow may seem expensive on first glance, but it's SO VERY WORTH a good nights sleep! Highly recommend!
I purchased the pillow for my husband, and he is still getting used to it, but likes it so far.
I'm actually a great sleeper but would occasionally wake up with a sore neck or shoulder and think it was perhaps my bed, or just age. Since using this pillow I've never had that problem. If feels very slimline and also heavy, and I thought this was not going to suit me, but the proof is in the pudding and this pillow is a game changer
This pillow perfectly snuggles my entire head, neck and shoulder for maximum support. It feels soft, while giving me the firm support that I wish. I have never woken up with any stiffness or pain in the morning. Genius construction!
Additionally it makes me sleep safe and sound knowing that all materials are natural.
I did not know what deep sleep was until Day 2 using my Hullwinkle pillow. I am sleeping and dreaming like never before. It’s life-changing - I feel refreshed when I wake up.
Took some time to get used to, but feel it is great support
I have never been able to find a pillow that was firm enough or supported my neck the way I felt I need it. This pillow does both for me. I lay my head down and it feels like it is in the place it should be. Loving going to sleep everynight with the pillow.
I bought my pillow 3 months ago and have been in awe at how much support and better sleep I get. As proof, I went away for a week and did not take my pillow. My sleep was off and my neck hurt. Once I was back home, sleeping on my Hullwinkle was amazing. The support I get on my neck has helped my posture. You can see the quality in tech and construction of the pillow. Highly recommend!
This is the most supportive and comfortable pillow I have ever had! It has great back support and has helped improve my sleep so much!
At first I was concerned that this pillow was too heavy and big, however, after one night's sleep I was convinced. Great neck support and I find that I'm waking up refreshed, with more energy.
After sleeping on soft pillows for 46 years I gave the Hullwinkle pillow a try. I don't think I could have picked a more opposite pillow than my previous gel pillow. However, that being said, I slept more soundly that first night than I ever remember sleeping on my gel pillow. With having 3 young kids it hit me that the hullwinkle pillow is a lot like the firm surfaces we place our kids on when they are babies except that the hullwinkle pillow conforms to your head and neck which is really comfortable and I've been able to sleep on my back for the first time in years without my wife elbowing me out of a sound sleep to tell me that I'm snoring. While I'd like to get 8 hours of sleep, with 3 kids, a business and everything else, 5-6 hours is the norm for me and since switching to the hullwinkle I don't feel the grogginess that I usually felt after only getting 5-6 hours of sleep. After a month I am very happy with my purchase and the customer service Nora provided at the start by giving me a heads up that my pillow was delayed in transit due to the winter storm was a nice surprise to receive. It was by chance through a friend that I heard about hullwinkle and I'm glad I took a chance on purchasing it. Nothing beats a good night's sleep.
