Quick Overview

Layla offers the Layla Pillow. This model features shredded memory foam fill blended with fibers from the kapok tree, which have a down-like consistency. The copper-infused cover is made from a blend of polyester, viscose, and Lycra® spandex. The loft is not adjustable; the Layla Pillow measures roughly 4″ thick and has a ‘Medium Soft’ feel.

Like other pillows filled with shredded memory foam, the Layla Pillow sleeps relatively cool for most. The cover’s copper infusion boosts temperature neutrality, and may benefit sleepers with poor circulation, as well. The pillow’s ‘Medium Soft’ feel creates a cradling surface that conforms closely to the sleeper’s head, neck, and shoulders. This can alleviate aches and pains for sleepers with discomfort issues, and also improve spinal alignment for those who sleep on their side. The Layla Pillow is also highly moldable and ideal for people who like to snuggle with a pillow or place one beneath their legs or under their knees.

The Layla Pillow has a price-point that is comparable to that of the average shredded memory foam pillow. Layla offers free shipping anywhere in the contiguous U.S., and backs the pillow with a 120-night sleep trial and a five-year warranty. Read on to learn more about the Layla Pillow in terms of pricing, construction, performance, and other buying factors. This guide also includes an overview of the company’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar pillow recommendations.

Category Criteria Layla Pillow Rating What Layla Pillow Users Say
Category

Durability

Criteria

The average pillow will perform for two to three years before it needs to be replaced, but its longevity typically depends on the material composition.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow has an expected lifespan of about two and a half to three years, which is on par with the average shredded memory foam model.

Category

Firmness Options

Criteria

Pillows that are available in one firmness may be limiting to customers compared to those that are sold in multiple settings.

Rating

Poor

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow is exclusively available in a ‘Medium Soft’ setting, and may not be suitable for those who prefer firmer surfaces; its loft is non-adjustable, as well.

Category

Shape Retention

Criteria

Some pillows require frequent fluffing and shaking to maintain a full, supportive shape, while others retain their shape well with minimal maintenance.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

As is common with shredded memory foam pillows, the Layla Pillow requires regular fluffing in order to keep the fill evenly dispersed.

Category

Moldability

Criteria

Some pillows are exceptionally snuggly and squeezable, making them a good option for sleepers who like cuddling with a pillow or placing one between their knees or under their legs.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow is exceptionally moldable and should be suitable for pillow snugglers and those who like leg/knee support pillows.

Category

Conforming

Criteria

Pillows that conform closely without sagging or hugging too tightly are usually the most effective at alleviating aches, pains, and pressure points.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow conforms very closely to alleviate discomfort and improve spinal alignment; the copper-infused cover also provides some level of pain relief.

Category

Temperature Neutrality

Criteria

Depending on their design and fill type, a pillow may retain a lot of body heat from sleepers and feel excessively warm or absorb less heat and remain relatively cool.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow offers strong air circulation and a breathable, copper-infused cover, both of which make the pillow fairly temperature neutral – especially when compared to other memory foam pillows.

Category

Odor Potential

Criteria

Most pillows emit off-gassing odor when new, but some are associated with stronger and/or longer-lasting smells.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow emits some odor when new, but the smells will most likely clear out in a matter of days.

Category

Weight

Criteria

Most pillows are relatively light, but heavier models may be somewhat difficult to move and adjust during the night.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow weighs about four and five pounds, depending on the size; some owners may find it heavy and difficult to move, but most should have no issues.

Category

Ease of Cleaning

Criteria

Many pillows sold today can be washed and dried in machines, but some models require other care measures that may be more expensive and/or time-consuming, such as spot cleaning or dry cleaning.

Rating

Poor

What Buyers Say

The Layla Pillow’s cover is spot-clean only, and will require extra time to keep it hygienic. Layla says the pillow can be washed and dried in a machine, but doing so may void warranty coverage.

The Layla Pillow’s key strengths appear to be temperature neutrality, close conforming, and exceptional moldability. The pillow’s copper-infused cover helps it sleep fairly cool compared to other memory foam models, and this component can also improve bloodflow in sleepers with poor circulation. However, the Layla Pillow offers a limited firmness/loft selection. It is also fairly difficult and time-consuming to clean.

Caring for Your Layla Pillow

Instructions for First Time Use: The Layla Pillow does not require any special treatments prior to first-time use, but fluffing the pillow after unpackaging can help it expand to a fuller shape.

Cleaning Instructions:

  • The pillow cover is not removable. It should be spot-cleaned with mild, non-toxic cleaner if stains occur.
  • Pillow owners may wash and dry their pillow in a machine. However, this is not recommended. Per the Layla Pillow warranty: “If you choose, you may run the pillow through a washing machine on a gentle cycle and dry it in a dryer on a low heat setting, although it may take several cycles for the pillow to dry completely. Since there is no way for us to verify the suitability of your machine, we do not recommend washing or drying the pillow in any machine and doing so may void the pillow warranty.”
