I often listen to my hubby complain about waking with a stiff/sore neck. We were assuming he slept wrong or his pillow was just getting old and needed to be replaced again. I know the same thing happens to me from time to time. Perhaps it's just that we are getting old and it's just a part of aging to have aches and pains that we have never had before.
One evening before bed I told hubby I had a gift for him. Not sure what he was expecting but he seemed genuinely surprised when I tossed a StaminaFibre pillow at him. I encouraged him to try the new pillow to see if it helped his sleep. Perhaps he'd even wake up without this persistent neck pain .He pulled it out of the zippered storage bag and gave it a squeeze. The first thing he said was "wow, that's really firm". I agreed that it was firm but thought it would be a good thing but he was really skeptical. As with every other pillow he was certain that after a month or 2 of use it would be just as flat as all the other pillows he's been through but he slid it into a pillow case and dropped it at his spot in the bed.
The next morning I asked him how his neck was. It was fine but he thought it was just a coincidence. He did mention that it was just too stiff for him. I had another look at the packaging to see if it had any info on washing. I figured if I washed it it might loosen up a bit. According to the package it said it was washable, durable and wouldn't flatten or clump so I threw it in the washer. It washed really well but took two cycles in the dryer to become fully dry to the centre. I was pleasantly surprised that it was just as full and puffy. Hubby used it that night again and agreed that while it was still really full it had a bit of give for his head now. He's actually been using the pillow every night since and has noticed an improvement in his sleep and his stiff neck is gone. When I asked him to share his opinion of the pillow he said "it's like I stole the pillow from a luxury hotel".
I had always heard that the key to a good sleep is your mattress and I do agree, but I also think the pillow plays an important role as well. No more buying the $10 cheapo pillows. The StaminaFibre pillow is definately a bit more money but it has proven to be a worthy investment. With a 3 year Guarantee you can't really go wrong. I have bought new pillows every 6 months or so because they never wash well. so if I add that up over 3 years I would have spend more on cheap pillows that what the StaminaFibre Pillow sells for. If you go to their website you can find this pillow any many other products.
