Sleep Crown Founder and yoga teacher Julie Westervelt created an over-the-head pillow after noticing her students were more relaxed with the gentle pressure of a blanket on them—relaxed enough to nod off at the end of class.
While studying relaxation techniques Julie learned that gentle weight can calm the mind and give the body the cue to rest. So she created a pillow that provides that same comfort, tailored for the over-the-head job. Her Sleep Crown pillows are all stuffed by hand in Austin, Texas. The pillow has a just-right weight that comes from faux down filling that’s wrapped in three layers of bamboo fabric. Its curved shape lets you tuck the pillow around your eyes and ears to better block out light and muffle sounds.
We couldn’t keep our hands off this silky-soft pillow, and think over-the-head sleepers will appreciate the deeply relaxing sensation it provides.
