This is because, one of the most common mistakes is to believe that there is a perfect pillow for all: on the contrary, each of us needs a special pillow, that depends on the position normally assumed during sleep. So, who tend to sleep in the supine position, should choose a low pillow and soft, but not too much, so that the neck is not much floor, a pillow top would in fact to be easy on the neck and shoulders, causing neck pain.
If, however, it is customary to sleep on your side, the pillow should be large enough to hold his head up enough to the shoulder and so aligned with the spine. Finally, if you sleep on your stomach, it would be appropriate to place the pillow on her side to support the body, as if you were holding, keeping his head resting on the mattress. This saves having to bend the head sideways too, with the effect of sore in the joints of the neck.

People have always recognized the inimitable quality natural materials: the warmth of wool, cotton and linen freshness, softness of silk, the lightness of the duvet, the elasticity of the fiber, and the comfort of natural latex. Wool is the most important animal fiber.
It is warm, soft and durable, thanks to its resistance to wear. Facilitates perspiration and absorbs moisture, ensuring excellent thermal insulation. The pillows that use as the viscoelastic memory foam material, have the characteristic to mold according to the pressure and shape of the head and neck, and to perfectly adapt to the temperature of the body, creating a print ergonomically for the head, minimizing the movements during sleep and thus giving a good night’s rest.
