The Kakun Body Pillow is the embrace you need to sleep your best each and every night. Made from high-quality, Premium Eco Wool™ surrounded by organic sateen cotton, it is designed to provide support for your upper arm, hip, and leg throughout the night, preventing your spine from twisting when deep sleep takes over. Sleeping with a Kakun body pillow improves blood circulation, regulates your temperature, provides emotional comfort, and allows you to get the restorative slumber you need.
The Kakun body pillow is a long-term solution for many common sleep difficulties experienced by side sleepers. Sleep issues may result from chronic pain, injury, restlessness, discomfort, stress, anxiety, pregnancy, autism spectrum disorders and more. The Kakun body pillow alleviates these issues by ensuring proper body alignment, giving you the deep relaxation and quality-sleep time you need to heal and arise feeling rested each morning.
Even those who feel they sleep well can enjoy the benefits of sleeping with a body pillow, such as speedier recovery from athletic exertion, emotional support for children, and your partner will most definitely appreciate less snoring.
Organic sateen cotton pillowcase included.
Kakun body pillows are sized like unisex clothing. Smaller people need a shorter, lighter pillow. Larger people will benefit from a larger, heavier one. We offer seven sizes to accommodate most people. Choose your pillow size the same way you would choose a t-shirt.
- XS - 2.75 lb, 14” x 44”
- Small - 3.5 lb, 17” x 52”
- Medium - 4 lb, 17” x 52”
- Large - 4.5 lb, 17” x 52”
- XL - 5 lb, 17” x 52”
- Tall - 5.5 lb, 17” x 64”
- XTall - 6.5 lb, 17” x 64”
- XXTall - 7.5 lbs, 17” x 64”
Note that the XS size is shorter and best suited to children and small adults, while the Tall and XLTall are longer and especially suited for taller adults.
Always keep your Kakun Body Pillow in its included pillowcase. If you need to clean the pillow itself, spot clean gently using cold water and eco-friendly soap. You can air out your pillow on a hot summer day—the heat of the sun will help revive the fiber. Machine wash your pillowcase in cold water using gentle laundry detergent. It’s best to hang it to dry or you can tumble dry it on low temperature.
Our wool is natural and is cleaned and processed without the use of harsh chemical agents. You may notice a gentle scent of farm fields when you receive your new wool item. Wool retains its naturally occurring lanolin oil and its scent will dissipate within a few days.
Do you struggle with:
Pain or injury
Arthritis, back or hip problems and many other painful conditions can make getting a good night’s sleep frustrating.
Tossing & turning
Waking throughout the night might mean that your body is not aligned properly, making you feel uncomfortable and aggravating common pressure points.
Stress or anxiety
Whether you’ve had a stressful day or suffer from regular anxiety, thoughts and emotions can keep you from falling asleep or staying asleep.
Kakūn body pillow benefits
What is your sleep position?
Many Kakun sleepers instantly fall in love with their pillow and never look back. But changing the way you sleep can sometimes take a bit of practice and patience, especially if you’ve been sleeping the same way for a very long time. When you first start sleeping with a Kakun body pillow, it may take a few tries to find exactly the right position that carries you off to dreamland.
Start by placing your new body pillow just below your chin and hold it close to your chest. Then try one of the following positions, and don’t hesitate to get creative.
The Classic Kakun
The Full Kakun
The Little Spoon
One of the two most popular positions, The Arrow is ideal for those needing help to stop collapsing forward, which can cause strain and pain on the hips and shoulders. This position is also great if you are a stomach sleeper who likes the secure feeling of counterpressure from your mattress.
The Classic Kakun
Similar to The Arrow, The Classic Kakun keeps you from rolling forward while also keeping your shoulders, elbows, knees and feet aligned but not knocking together, which is also great for your pelvis and spine. The Classic Kakun keeps your entire body supported from your shoulders to your toes.
The Full Kakun
The favourite position for those recovering from injury or with chronic body issues, The Full Kakun provides dynamic support on both sides, keeping you from rolling onto either your back or stomach. This position also ensures a pillow is always available when you roll over, so you can try your favourite position in either direction.
For back sleepers, placing your body pillow under your knees helps take pressure off your lower back by keeping your spine neutral. The Kakun body pillow is sized perfectly for The Lounger: it’s narrow enough to fit under your knees and long enough to stay put better than a standard head pillow.
The Little Spoon
Lean back on your Kakun, making sure it is tucked under the length of your back, and you’ll experience the surprising comfort of The Little Spoon. This position allows all of the muscles along your spine to relax while opening up your chest and sternum. For a great relaxation exercise, try it in the morning before getting out of bed. It’s also great for expectant mothers.
For extra shoulder support, twist your body pillow so that the top half is parallel to your chest. This position allows your arms and shoulders to rest higher, which is great for people with broad shoulders, upper body injuries, or chronic arm and shoulder issues. The Hugger is also great for relieving pinching between your shoulder blades and kinks in your neck.
Well-Rested Customers Agree
The virtual store experience was pleasantly comfortable, no sales pressure but with a staff that is knowledgeable in their products that they offer. And when they don't have the answers, they took the resources to get the answers. I had the pleasure of dealing with Chris, Chantel, Charlene, Olga & Dalyn. The Eco Wool Body Pillows were indeed a good choice to further complement and enhance sleep quality and comfort level. Thank you.

The buying experience was smooth and easy. The pillow arrived within a few days of ordering. It came just as as detailed. This pillow is the best thing to come into my life since my husband! And it is so reassuring to know that I am snuggling up to something that is organic and non-toxic. Compared to some other styles of body pillows, it does not take up too much space in the bed.
