Kapok Fiber Stuffing

Read 54 reviews 54 SKU #: KFS

Kapok is an exceptional choice for natural fillings in various products such as pillows, cushions, dolls, zafus, poufs, meditation cushions, bean bags, and more. Often referred to as "silk cotton" or "vegan down," kapok boasts a lightweight and soft texture, making it a popular plant-based option. It serves as the perfect natural and vegan alternative to down and synthetic materials, offering support that synthetic options can't replicate.

Kapok fiber is sourced from the Ceiba pentandra, also known as the kapok or silk-cotton tree, and is renowned for its natural and organic attributes. This tree thrives without the need for pesticides or irrigation, making kapok one of the most sustainable crops available. Harvesting kapok involves collecting the seed pods that naturally fall from the tree, ensuring the tree's longevity. Additionally, the cultivation of kapok in rainforest regions contributes to the preservation of trees, as there's no need to cut them down for harvesting. Moreover, this sustainable practice helps boost local economies in regions like Indonesia and other tropical areas.

The process of transforming raw kapok material into bedding fiber is remarkably simple, involving manual cleaning, spinning, and eventual delivery to us!

Shipping: We're pleased to offer free shipping within the contiguous US. If you reside in PR, AK, HI, or outside of the US, kindly reach out to us for shipping cost details.

Care: Please note that due to kapok's natural and unprocessed nature, we strongly discourage washing or submerging it in water, as this may compromise the fiber's consistency. When handling kapok, it's advisable to work in a well-ventilated area, protect your eyes, and wear a mask, as the fibers are exceptionally silky and lightweight.

This is my second time ordering kapok from this shop and it doesn't disappoint. Compared to other companies I've ordered from THIS Kapok is much cleaner! It's a natural product so some non-stuffing plant matter is expected, but no hard bits, little sticks or pebbles here. I used 5+ pound for a puff quilt and am very happy with the result.

Definitely seems natural - my order had a few seed hulls 😅 very happy with purchase though. The kapok is super soft and fluffy. I have a TON of product left over as I only used about 2 lbs or so. Very happy with purchase

I bought the Kapok to stuff poufs purchased w/o the polystyrene beads as it's very toxic to the environment. The Kapok works amazingly well and I bought more to stuff pillows with. I love that it is natural and the tree is not killed to harvest it. Thanks for giving me the option.

Beautiful! It's amazing what can be found on nature.. I have one of their pillows of the same material.. This is even more beautiful. And I love my pillow. 😊

This filling is so light and fluffy, and when packed into a pillow has a nice density to it that is soft yet really supportive. It did tend to get little fibers on the fabric as I was trying to stuff a pillow. But it was easy to get off with a fabric scraper.

I wasn't sure what to expect ordering 10lbs of stuffing. It is quite a lot! It comes very tightly packed and could easily make 3-4 firm standard pillows. (Maybe more??) The hand feel is amazingly soft and there is a noticable difference when compared to something like polyfil.

Lovely quality, quick delivery, excellent follow up from the company in answer to my questions. A month and a half after purchase I can verify that this has held up beautifully in my ottoman.

The stuff is great!! Worked well for the floor pillows that I made - Sleepsimple was super helpful in regards to my questions on how much kapok I would need for my project and info on shipping.

Thank you so much for sending this out to me during the pandemic. I used it to stuff a number stuffed animals I made for the kids. 10 lbs is A LOT so I had plenty left over to re-stuff some large pillows and a life sized teddy bear. I still have a lot left over. I am so happy I found this natural material because I really didn't want to purchase the polyester stuffings.

Very soft and will make several more pillows than I anticipated! I ordered 25 lbs - and the more I use, the more the kapok keeps expanding. Great value and a fun project to stuff my own pillows!

This kapok fiber is EXACTLY what I needed. SleepSimple was very helpful in assisting me to determine how much I needed to purchase as well as their general level of stuffing for various kinds of pillows & cushions. I have already sewn and stuffed a cushion and I'm SO pleased! :D

This 10lb bag is huge. It comes compacted, but once I opened the bag it started growing immediately, swelling to nearly double the size. It so soft. Reaching my arm into the bag is a very surreal experience. It is very messy though, with fluffy bits easily floating in the air. The trick seems to be to grab very slowly, and put it into the pillow form carefully, slowly, so as not to let little fibers float away.
