What’s the BluTech Fusion Fill (BFF) in the Parallel Pillow?

There’s nothing like snuggling up with your BFF.

In this case, I’m talking about the BluTech Fusion Fill inside the new Parallel Pillow.

It’s one of the most important ingredients in the unique “recipe” that makes the Parallel Pillow so amazing, from the inside out.

BFF is what we call the unique hybrid blend of downy, hypoallergenic fibers and precision-cut gel visco foam enabling twice the airflow of conventional foam fills. It’s blue, and uses some fantastic technology to keep you comfortable through the night, year-round.

Nestled inside an “omigosh-soft” TENCEL™ outer cover and a 4-way-stretch self-refreshing inner shell, our BFF is remarkably sculptable, meaning you can mold it to give you exactly the support you need, regardless of the position you’re sleeping in at the moment. While pillows designed for side sleepers or tummy sleepers can work well if you stay in one position, most of us move around many times while we sleep. In fact, a study by the American Sleep Disorders Association and Sleep Research Society found that people change positions between 10 and 40 times in a night. It’s easy to understand how a pillow that supportively shape-shifts with you as you move can make a huge difference in your overall sleep quality.

Want to geek out on the details? (Ah, a kindred spirit – perfect!) Here are a few interesting points about our BFF:

  • The Parallel Pillow’s BluTech Fusion Fill is 25% microfiber and 75% foam by weight.
  • The fluffy down-alternative microfiber is made of 100% recycled material, spun from the plastic of an average 20 recycled water bottles. A high-profile king Parallel Pillow upcycles 23 bottles — nearly a full flat!
  • The blue memory foam incorporates high-tech gel that immediately responds and adjusts to your body movements. In addition to double the airflow of other foam fills, it combines the resiliency of latex with the pressure-relieving conformance of memory foam. And with low temperature sensitivity, it provides uniform comfort and support, keeping you at the right temperature year-round.
  • And the dark memory foam component is a USDA Certified Biobased Product, with 28% biobased content from high loading of plant-based polyol.
  • Both foam components can be recycled after use to further reduce environmental impact.
  • In addition to the recycled content in the microfiber, both foams are made without ozone depleters, formaldehyde or phthalates.
  • It’s CertiPUR-US Certified.
  • It’s made right here in the USA.

In short, our BFF makes the Parallel Pillow temperature neutral, so it’s never too hot or too cold. It doesn’t flatten out, and provides cloud-like loft and huggable support all night long — every night.

The Parallel Pillow ships generously filled with our BFF hybrid fluff, and it’s easier to take some out if you want it to be less substantial under your head and neck. And if you want even more, we’ve got you. Just request extra fluff and we’ll send some over for free!

If you haven’t slept on a Parallel Pillow yet, prepare to be delighted. Our 90-day return window means there’s no risk — with many restful sleeps and energized tomorrows to gain!
