Microfibre Pillows (US: microfiber pillows) provide a synthetic alternative to their natural counterparts, such as duck feather and goose feather. Microfibre Pillows are significantly cheaper and imitate the feather-like feel that is found in natural pillows.
What is Microfibre Polyester?
Microfibre is a type of polyester, which is finer than normal. This characteristic gives the pillow a lighter and softer feel, similar to feather pillows. It also improves breathability as air can circulate through the finer loose weaves of microfibre, preventing the fabric from overheating during sleep.
Suitable for Allergy Sufferers
Microfibre Pillows maintain a feather-like feel without compromising on health. If you are prone to allergies, feather is perhaps not an advisable choice of pillow. Although it is rare to have a true feather allergy, such reactions are most frequently caused by the dust mite allergen, which is often found in bedding.
