[London Drugs] Bamboo Knit Pillow $14.99 (50% off)

They are bamboo bedroom pillows. They measure 19" x 27". They feel similar to memory foam and sit a little low.

These pillows are available in store in Vancouver. They seem much better than the $20 Bed Bath and Beyond pillows I've tried.

It seems pretty good. It's a fairly low profile pillow, slept on it one night with no problems. Very airy kind of mesh kind of pillow. I'm really happy that it didn't stink when it came out of the bag, which is an issue with me.

Back sleeping seemed good, side sleeping it seemed a little low, but didn't wake up with any pains.

There isn't much information available, but the 'bamboo knit' description almost certainly refers solely to the casing around the pillow, and tell you nothing about the actual filling of the pillow. (It could be 'down alternative' (polyester), shredded memory foam, etc. Probably polyester at this price point, but who knows.)

Even when describing the casing, 'bamboo knit' is just marketing - if you read the tags on the product, the company is required by law to list the material as rayon/viscose, because that is what it actually is. Rayon is a synthetic textile made from heavily processed cellulose. in China, bamboo happens to be a very cheap source of cellulose. Hence, rayon made in China gets called 'bamboo'. It's no better for the environment or your body than any other synthetic fabric.

There's a decent article about this here: https://www.cbc.ca/news/bamboo-textiles ... n-1.938759

Bottom line, this may be a good pillow for $15, or a terrible pillow for $15. But don't let the 'bamboo knit' marketing sway you one way or the other.

I bought a few, the fine print says the cover and fill are 15% rayon and 85% polyester.

I'm waiting for it and read/watched a lot of reviews. It's one of the highest rated pillows that can be easily adjusted unlike most if not all pillows.
