Pooh is considered one of the best fillers, espec
Alas, all these fillers have a significant drawback - they are not recommended for people with allergies.To all such cushion should, they say, to disinfect, so they are not firmly settled ... tick - imperceptible to the eye but very harmful creature.
Wool pillows are known for their ability to absorb moisture, while remaining almost dry, retain heat for a long time.Most often, the market offers products from combed sheep or camel wool.Minus the first - within a few weeks they may matted and bring them to their original state is impossible.
Ear cushions do not cause allergic reactions, easy to absorb moisture, the air is passed well.They are perhaps the cheapest, but, alas, quickly knock down in clumps.
