Although it is rather luxurious and comfy, not worth $180. I love how it was made with quality in mind, and heavily. Hard to find a good pillow. I have 18 pillows on my bed and NONE of them are perfect. Maybe I should invent my own.More > < Less


The jury is out!

I bought this pillow about a month ago. I'm not sure what I think about it. I'm definitely not unhappy. It is heavy so when I have to scoot it I notice that. I agree with one reviewer it is lumpy but so far not in a bad way. The jury is out.More > < Less


Well made, but the price is prohibitive.

More firm than I'm used to, however, I usually do get a good night's sleep with it.


More firm than expected

I have had this pillow since last Christmas. I loved it at first, but it is very firm. I do flip it over at least once during the night and that helps it feel a bit softer. My issue with this is that as a side sleeper, I wake up with a sore ear or jaw because it's so firm. I'm tempted to go back to my latex foam pillow. I have held onto it because I love that it is resistant to mites and whatever else lives in pillows.More > < Less


High Hopes

1/12/2014 by J

I have searched most of my life for the perfect pillow. Had high hopes these would fill the bill. Have been sleeping on one for about a year, and I do like it, but it is not perfect. Guess nothing is! My main complaint is that the alpaca tends to lump and it is very hard to un-lump. So, I find my head is in a 'valley' caused by the weight of my head. I am a side-sleeper so my face is usually smushed into the 'hills'. My husband's pillow looks the same and if these were standard pillows I would conclude that they are worn out and ready for replacement. However, at the price paid, I will continue to try to un-lump and use for a very long time.More > < Less

About Malpaca

Pillow Talk

Mary Anderle cares a lot about pillows. She cares about the filling (100% alpaca), the fabric cover (made from viscose bamboo) and even the thread and tags (organic materials).

You might not have given a lot of thought to your pillow, but Mary definitely has. An interior designer for more than 25 years, she became inspired to create alpaca pillows after learning about the inherent benefits of alpaca fiber. It’s lofty, inhospitable to dust mites, and it’s naturally fire retardant without the need for chemicals. Alpaca is also great for allergy-prone sleepers. Many people who are sensitive to wool find that they’re not sensitive to alpaca, since their fiber doesn’t contain lanolin, which can hold dust and microscopic allergens.

Mary’s Malpaca pillows are hand-sewn and filled entirely with fiber from U.S. alpacas raised in herbicide-free settings. They’re not dipped in pesticide baths, and no chemicals, dyes, or bleaches are used during processing. Maintaining one of Mary’s pillows is as simple as setting it in the sunshine, which cleans and deodorizes the pillow. And did we mention the comfort factor? Utterly luxurious. You’ll feel the difference alpaca makes, every time your head hits the pillow.
