Will the Pillow with a Hole Work for Me?

Why Is it so Good at Treating Chondrodermatitis?

Chondrodermatitis (CNH) is a pressure sore the develops on the ear. You're more likely to be affected by the condition if you are over 55 and are a side sleeper. This is because your body's ability to heal worsens as you age, making you more prone to pressure sores caused by friction. If you regularly sleep on your side, you may expose your skin to excessive irritation, leading to pressure sores. 

While the creams and surgery are typically prescribed for the condition, they don't treat the root cause, and CNH often reoccurs as a result. This is what makes the Pillow with a Hole such an effective treatment. Rather than helping you to manage symptoms the pillow addresses the problem at its source. This form of treatment is even recommended by the British Association of Dermatologists

How Big is the Pillow with a Hole?

The pillow is medium sized with a rectangular shape, its dimensions being 50 x 35 x 8cm  (20 x 14 x 2 inches). The ear hole is positioned 12cm (5 inches) from the pillow's edge and is 8 x 9cm (3 x 4 inches). Its shape and size offer an effective amount of protection for your ear without compromising on head support. 

Can I Use the Pillow with a Hole if I Have Allergies?

If you suffer from allergies, you can sleep peacefully knowing the Pillow with a Hole won't cause you any trouble. It's stuffed with a hypoallergenic hollow-fibre, which can safely be used by allergy sufferers. As an added bonus, the texture of this stuffing gives the pillow a light, springy feel. 

Washing Instructions

The Pillow with a Hole is low maintenance and doesn't require much special treatment to keep it in good condition. It can safely be machine washed and dried, preferably at 30°C (86°F). To help prevent the stuffing from forming clumps during a tumble dry, simply place a tennis ball into the barrel along with the pillow. This ensures it will maintain a good level of plumpness. 

Who Created the Pillow with a Hole?

close up of label

The Original Pillow with a Hole is a company that values history just as much as quality. They believe the North of England has a strong connection to the textile industry, so they source all of their materials from Lancashire Mills. Made of 100% cotton, each pillow is entirely produced in England using some of the highest-quality product available. On top of all this, every one of their pillows is stuffed by hand.
