COMMENTS ARE CLOSED: So happy to be able to share this awesome pillow with you, Danielle E (comment #30) please check your email for further instructions, thanks!
As 1 of the 5 people suffering from seasonal allergies in our house (my husband sneezes once or twice around the middle of May and he's done, so he doesn't count) I feel it safe to say that springtime is a bittersweet time of year.
I truly empathize with the folks who have to deal with environmental allergies 24/7/365.
I was recently contacted by the good folks representing Robin Wilson Home: Ms. Wilson is the designer of the Kennedy Green House, the LEED certified renovation project of Robert Kennedy Jr.'s 1920 home ravaged by black mold.
As a family STILL dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irene (the witch) I feel it safe to say that dealing with black mold sucks wet poodle.
Robin Wilson Home has launched a new line of home furnishings and we had the opportunity to road test their Down Alternative Luxury Bed Pillow.
- The “less than 10 micron opening” and the fills are super washed to remove microscopic dust particles
- They are also dust mite resistant
- They have a certified allergy proof barrier
Great, but what makes these pillows so totally awesome?
- Energy efficient - speed dry 6 times faster
- Aqua pel: repel water, allow for moisture vapor transfer performance and provides wrinkle free finish
- Non chlorinated PEVA bags for packaging
- Cotton allergy proof fabric outside (less than 10 micron opening)
- Micro fiber poly fill (30 oz Standard, 37 oz King)
FINAL VERDICT: I typically launder newly purchased clothes, bedding and stuff (I have experienced a severe skin allergy coming into contact with stuff right off the racks/shelves) so, I threw the pillow into the washer on sanitize (luxury be damned) then tossed it into the dryer on a normal setting and it lived.
Actually, the pillow held its shape pretty well, however, my youngest daughter has since jacked it and claimed it as her own = you snooze, you lose.
The good folks representing Robin Wilson Home have offered to send one (1) of our online friends a Down Alternative Luxury Bed Pillow to road test at your house, too!
Because, we roll like that.
