The Layla pillow is not only the perfect pillow for your Layla mattress, it’s a memory foam pillow that pairs well with most mattresses. It’s priced at $99 and similar to the Layla mattress, it also is infused with copper giving it antimicrobial properties.  You can tell a lot of thought went into the design of this pillow which gives it an almost universal feel.

Ordering Your Layla Pillow

Currently, you can only purchase the Layla Pillow exclusively through the Layla website. It will arrive about a week after ordering. Unlike many pillows, this one actually comes with a free trial period. You can try it for 120 nights and if you don’t like it, return it for a full refund. That includes shipping to you and free return shipping something not often found with other pillow purchases.

Here’s a video overview of the Layla pillow with me on the Layla mattress. As you can see the cover of both the pillow and mattress are the same.


Construction of the Layla Pillow

The pillow is a standard/queen size the measurements are as follows:

24″ wide x 18″ tall x 4″ deep

The Layla pillow is made with a kapok/memory foam fill. Kapok is a fiber that comes from the seeds of a Kapok tree. It has a silky feel that makes for a great filler since it is a natural, renewable material. Combining this with shredded memory foam makes the pillow feel softer and lighter.

What are the other benefits of Kapok?

Kapok is hypoallergenic.
Lighter than cotton
Resists clumping
Down like feel

The cover of the Layla pillow is made with a copper infused cover. This makes the pillow sleep cooler due to copper’s high conductivity. Copper is also antimicrobial so your pillow will stay fresh, longer.

My Layla Pillow Findings

The Layla pillow has a medium loft. That means that it is thick enough to accommodate all sleepers. This is the first pillow with foam and kapok that I have tried. There are many latex/kapok pillow on the market which have a more bouncy feel. I think the foam used in this pillow pairs well with the kapok because you get the familiar down like feel and all the conforming and pressure relieving benefits of memory foam.

Best of all this pillow comes with a trial period so there’s nothing to lose with giving it a try. Pillows you buy on Amazon or other sites often require you to pay return shipping. With Layla they cover the return shipping you’re not out any money.

This pillow does NOT feel like the solid foam pillows of yesteryear. Think of the Layla pillow as a next generation foam pillow that leverages one of the best natural fibers, Kapok with shredded foam to make the pillow breathable, squish and comfy. The added benefit of a copper infused cover means you can get many years out of this pillow.
