Why choose a kapok pillow?
Most people can recognize the experience of a feather or down pillow getting really hot during the night. The pillow gets so hot that you have to turn the pillow multiple times during the night, just to find a cold spot. This is because feathers and down are both incredibly good at insulating. The good insulating ability gives a really nice feeling during the cold months, when we want to retain the heat as much as possible. It's really nice, right up until the point where you've warmed the pillow and duvet up to body temperature. After this, the body needs to be able to get rid of the excess heat and moisture coming from the body. Unfortunately, this is where feathers and down often fall short. A kapok pillow is great at regulating the temeprature due to the lightness and structure of the kapok fiber, which allows heat and moisture to be transported away from the body. A kapok pillow is therefore particularly suitable for those who tend to feel too hot at night.
Kapok is a natural fiber that grows on the kapok tree Cebia pentranda in the tropical rainforests of South and Central America, India and in the western part of Africa. You can partially compare kapok with cotton, but kapok differs by being much lighter and fluffier than cotton. The kapok fiber contains 80% air and is 8 times lighter than cotton, making it the lightest natural fiber in the world. The high air content in the kapok fiber is what makes it incredibly breathable and good at regulating heat and moisture.
When you sleep with a kapok pillow, you will therefore find that the pillow adapts to your body temperature. A kapok pillow is therefore one of the best things to sleep with if you have problems with sweating or simply find an ordinary down pillow too warm. A kapok pillow also differs by being water-resistant. The kapok fiber contains a natural layer of wax around each individual silky fiber. This means that the kapok pillow will not absorb the moisture and sweat that the body emits during the night. Instead, the moisture is transported away from the body through the fiber's many airy cavities. You will therefore find that a kapok pillow stays nice and dry throughout the night.
A Cocoon kapok quilt can be washed at 60 °C - however, we recommend washing at 40 °C to protect the duvet as much as possible and for a more environmentally friendly cleaning. For the best possible result, it is also recommended to use a tumble dryer to dry the product. REMEMBER TO READ EXTENDED WASHING INSTRUCTIONS.
Upon receiving the duvet
In order to preserve the fiber structure and the properties of the fiber as best as possible, we recommend that you only wash your kapok duvet if it is strictly necessary. Your Cocoon kapok duvet has not been dyed, treated with chemicals, nor contains any synthetic materials, and you therefore do not need to wash your new kapok duvet before use.
In addition, kapok contains a natural bitter substance, which makes the fiber and thus the kapok duvet antibacterial and resistant to house dust mites. It is therefore not necessary to wash the kapok duvet, unless there has been a major accident in the bed. In the case of minor stains, we recommend that you simply spot clean the duvet, in order to spare the duvet as much as possible.
We recommend airing the kapok quilt approx. once a month or as needed to maintain the structure of your duvet and ensure a healthy and fresh sleeping environment. If you need to wash your kapok duvet - then follow our extended washing instructions, which you will also find at the bottom of website.
