Airy and lightweight - By using hollow strands of polyester to achieve hollow fibre, it brings a lightweightedness to your bedding.
Breathable - Similarly, the hollow spaces in the fabric makes it breathable.
Microfibre vs Hollow Fibre Pillow and Bolster
Hollow fibre and microfibre bedding each have their unique properties. Some similarities include being hypoallergenic and suitable for sleepers with allergies, durable, easy to maintain, soft and breathable.
The differences between the two are:
Structure and feel - Microfibre has a more tightly woven structure, which accounts for its superior softness and more luxurious feel. On the other hand, hollow fibre is more towards a springy feel and holds its shape better.
Weight - Since microfibres are much finer than hollow fibres, it is more lightweight.
Affordability - In general, hollow fibre pillows and bolsters are more affordable than microfibre. However, both are great value for money options.
Ultimately, the choice between the two comes down to personal preference!
