Sammi therapeutic pillows have several individual compartments that are filled with buckwheat hulls. This provides a structure that, when sleeping, supports your neck and aligns your spine to the natural curvature of your body.
The Sammi pillow is actually a sleeping system consisting of...
A primary pillow with separate compartments that hold buckwheat hulls and are accessible by openings opened and closed by a series of zippers,
A secondary pillow that holds a small amount of polyester fiberfill.
The primary pillow contains a neck liner with access to the compartments via three zippers. The secondary pillow can be used to make the pillow feel softer.
Filling your pillow
Find the primary pillow first. Un-zip the middle zipper from the three-zipper side.
Fill 2/3rds of the compartment with the buckwheat hulls, then zipper the compartment closed. Repeat this procedure with the other two compartments on the same side.
Now, unzip the single zipper at the upper side of the pillow and fill 2/3rds of the compartment with buckwheat hulls.
When you are filling this side of the pillow, you can place your hand into the bag to push the buckwheat hulls into the two sides that are partially separated.
Zip the zipper, and put down the pillow to move the buckwheat hulls around and make sure that each compartment is sufficiently filled.
If you wish to have a softer pillow, place the secondary pillow in the case before the primary pillow.
Also be careful when zipping and un-zipping to make sure that the zippers do not catch the fabric.
Push down on your pillow to test the height of each part.
If you feel that the whole pillow is too high, carefully remove the buckwheat hulls. Insert your hand inside the primary pillow to spread the buckwheat hulls through the compartments to reach the desired height.
As a general guideline, the middle of the neck liner, for sleeping on your back, should be the height of your fist. The back edge of the whole pillow should be the height of your fist. If you sleep on a soft bed, the height of the neck liner can be adjusted a little lower.
For sleeping on your side, both sides of the neck liner should be one and one-half times the height of your fist.
Make sure the logo on the side of the pillowcase is facing toward your neck because this should be the side that the neck liner of the primary pillow is located. Remember, your pillow is not just a sack of filling. It has internal walls that create compartments to be filled with buckwheat hulls and fiberfill to prevent the filling from shifting around while you sleep. The unique difference between the Sammi pillow and ordinary pillows is that the Sammi pillow’s height and firmness are adjustable and can be tailored to your anatomy and comfort level. After adjusting the height of the whole pillow, you can now enjoy your new therapeutic pillow.
