Have you ever heard about shredded latex pillows? There have been more searches for shredded latex pillows recently, which we will be more than happy to answer.

What is shredded latex? What are the advantages of shredded latex pillows?

In some stores these pillows are called micro cushion pillows.

Generally latex and shredded latex can be all natural latex or a blend with synthetics. However we at Organic Textiles LLC dedicate our products to be completely natural with no synthetic blends. We believe our products can work just as well as non-organic shredded latex, if not better.

Shredded latex pillows are made by shredding latex slabs into small pieces (about 0.5-1.5 inches long). The cut pieces are flexible and resilient in order to conform to body contours. The versatility offers varying degrees of support and pressure point relief. This enables comfortable, deep sleep.

Standard Latex pillows are usually made as a slab of latex. These pillows are made by utilizing a unique pin-core design to allow these pinholes in the pillow to deliver superior air flows, preventing heat build up.

The natural latex pillows are classified into single zone and dual-zones. The single zone pillows have the same sized pinholes, which spread from the edges to the center of the pillow. Dual-zone pillows has two areas zones, which consist of smaller pinholes and bigger pinholes.  This variation in pin hole size alters the density where as in dual zone pillows offer firmer edges and softer mid section.

Retailers such as Well Living Shop and My Organic Sleep offer shredded latex pillows, available in standard size, queen size or king size.
