How to Choose: Buckwheat vs. Millet Hulls
Both pillows are equally firm to sleep on and offer the same quality neck support. The buckwheat hulls are large and trap a lot of air which is then circulated through the pillow during sleep. Buckwheat hulls rustle during movement. Millet hulls are much smaller and make no sound during movement and sleep. They feel more smooth and velvety. All hull pillows are temperate (they do not take on heat in the summer or cold in the winter). Buckwheat hulls ventilate more easily given their large irregular shape. This will make a difference for those who tend to perspire at night and wake up to a damp pillow every morning).
