Sizing and Pricing

The Tuft & Needle pillow comes in two sizes:

  • Standard/Queen: $75
  • King: $100

Overview

  • Comfort: The Tuft & Needle pillow uses T&N Adaptive Foam™ which is soft yet supportive
  • Temperature:  The Tuft & Needle pillow cools down faster than similar foam pillows
  • Smell:   There was a faint smell when unboxing

The Tuft & Needle pillow features their T&N Adaptive Foam™ with the density adjusted for ideal pillow comfort. Plus the foam is blended with graphite for added cooling. The Tencel fiber covering is soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic. The zipper cover is removable for easy washing, too but must be air dried to avoid pilling. 


Comfort

Though the Tuft & Needle pillow is one piece of foam it does have a soft and airy feel. The airflow channels running through make it lighter and more flexible than other solid foam pillows. Even though the pillow is one piece it is soft enough to be easily manipulated into different positions while still providing a decent amount of support.

The Tuft & Needle pillow is 6″ in height. It has a soft but supportive feel that could be a great fit for side and back sleepers. Though, this pillow may be too tall for stomach sleepers.

For our tester, the T&N illow would be well suited  in the side sleeping position but her head is elevated past neutral in back and stomach positions.


Performance

Loft: 6″

Weight: 2.5″ Indentation, 4.5″ Loft

The T&N Adaptive Foam™ is just that. Adaptive. It bounces back immediately when the weight is removed and has a soft, bouncy feel. The weight didn’t effect the surround surface of the pillow when it is placed and removed. If you prefer and soft pillow but need something that doesn’t buckle under your head at night, the Tuft & Needle pillow may be a good match.

 


Temperature

The Tuft & Needle pillows’ T&N Adaptive Foam™ is made with graphite to keep you cool. And, it does actually stay cool. After the hand was removed the highest recorded pillow temperature was 88° which dropped to 75° which is 2° cooler than similar foam core pillows we’ve tested.

For the infrared test a hand was placed on the Tuft & Needle pillow for one minute and off for one minute.

Sped up at 3x.

Conclusion

Overall the Tuft & Needle pillow performed well and was very comfortable. The cover does have a tendency to pill so keep that in mind. If you are a back or side sleeper and prefer a soft, reactive pillow the Tuft & Needle may be a good fit.
