Anti-Allergen Mattress Pad

The Royalty down alternative mattress pad features a breathable solid white cotton fabric with 12 oz. of hypoallergenic polyester down alternative fill per square yard.

washable, the mattress pad is offered in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and California king sizes. J. Queen New York, 212-414-1555,

Hybrid Pillow

The hybrid design pairs low-tension springs with cushiony memory foam fill. The Nordic Chill cover fibers provide cool-to-the-touch feel while transporting heat away from the sleeper ten times faster than cotton—and it works even through thick pillowcases. Added Tencel fibers are smooth for sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, moisture wicking and bacteria-growth inhibiting. Multiple levels of firmness accommodate side, back and stomach sleepers.
