A Good Pillow to Sleep on: Cool & Fresh

It's always a challenge to find a comfortable pillow and get a good night's rest. We've tried many of them and recently found one that we think is really comfortable. It's by Wamsutta and it's called "Cool and Fresh."  It's a medium-firm pillow and offers good neck support.
    Tom always gets hot while sleeping and this pillow keeps cool. I have a lot of tension in my neck but don't like firm pillows, however, this one seems perfect. The right amount of support (and it doesn't feel like I'm sleeping on a log).
  We got these at Bed, Bath and Beyond for around $20 (price varies with size). It was a good deal, since some of the other pillows ranged from $49 to $100!
   Yes, we've tried the more expensive ones, and they weren't comfortable. So try this one.

Here are the basics we found on their website:
  • The down alternative Comforel® FreshFX® fiberfill bounces back for night after night of support and relaxing sleep
  • Cover is 80% cotton/20% polyester
  • 400 thread count
  • Fill is 100% polyester
  • Lining is 100% polypropylene
  • Standard/Queen pillow measures 20" L x 28" W with a 1" gusset
  • King measures 20" L x 36" W with a 1" gusset
  • Machine wash
  • 5-year limited manufacturer's warranty
  • Made in USA of U.S. and imported material


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
