FAQs

Do I need to use a pillowcase with my CosyBoo pillow?

 

CosyBoo pillows come with a silky soft pillowcase, made of sustainable bamboo fibre. This is removable and so can be replaced by your own pillowcase if you wish.

 

Are CosyBoo pillows free from chemicals?

 

Yes. All CosyBoo pillows are Oeko-Tex certified. This is an international testing and certification system for textiles. The certification body tests for over 100 harmful substances in the manufacture of textiles and makes sure none is left in the fabric at the end of the manufacturing process.

 

What do I need to do to my pillow once it arrives?

 

Your CosyBoo pillow will arrive rolled up and compressed in the box. You should remove the packaging and unroll your pillow first. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes to allow air back into the pockets inside. Finally plump up the pillow for maximum fluffiness and you’re ready to go!

 

Do CosyBoo pillows keep you cool at night?

 

Yes, our pillows are designed to allow air to circulate through the fabric. This prevents you from getting too hot. Our climate control feature also makes sure you stay warm on cold nights.

 

Why does my pillow have a smell?

 

Bamboo pillows have a distinctive fresh bamboo scent, however this does mostly fade away after a few weeks. Placing your pillow in a well-ventilated area when you’re not using it will help to remove this smell if it’s not to your taste.

 

How should I clean my CosyBoo pillow?

 

In order to take care of your pillow, we recommend keeping it away from the washing machine. To clean, run the pillow under a warm tap with a small amount of detergent until the water runs clear. To dry, place in a well-ventilated area and air dry. Make sure the pillow is entirely dry before using again.

 

I have allergies. Is the CosyBoo pillow suitable for me?

 

Yes. Our pillows are hypoallergenic.

 

What makes this a luxury pillow?

 

CosyBoo uses only the best quality materials in our pillows. The materials themselves are selected from hundreds of varieties for their comfort, durability and aesthetic properties, to surpass even 5* hotel quality. Each pillow is examined carefully to ensure it meets our high standards of workmanship. Our pillows have been tested and approved by hundreds of sleepy heads, so we’re confident that you’ll agree with our luxury label.

 

What’s so great about bamboo?

 

Bamboo fibre is the material of choice here at CosyBoo. It’s antibacterial, resistant to mould and hypoallergenic, similar to aloe vera. Whilst many materials such as cotton can wreak havoc on the natural environment, bamboo is much more sustainable. Some facts about the sustainability of bamboo are:

  • It is grown without pesticides or chemical fertilisers
  • It requires no irrigation
  • It rarely needs replanting
  • It grows rapidly and can be harvested in 3-5 years
  • It produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees
  • It sequesters carbon dioxide and is carbon neutral
  • It is a critical element in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
  • It is an excellent soil erosion inhibitor
  • It grows in a wide range of environments
  • It’s production into fibres has lower environmental impact than other forms of fibre, especially synthetic ones.
