Some pillows currently available include:
- Pillow Talk Naturals Queen 30/70% Surround Duck Down Pillows
- Pillow Talk Naturals King 30/70% Surround Duck Down Pillows
- Greenfirst 50/50 Duck Down Surround Pillow

At the time of writing, Pillow Talk stocks just one wool pillow ─ the Woolstar Classic Wool Blend Pillow. The Australian-made item retails for under $50 and features a cotton cover and Aussie wool & polyester blend fill. This design is claimed to help wick moisture away from the head and neck. Woolstar’s wool pillow is also claimed to have some bounce, apparently, thanks to the wool knops blend with polyester.
Gel Top Pillow
Avoid night sweats and hot flushes ruining a good night’s sleep with gel top pillows. Using premium quality microfibre, this range is said to create an instant cooling effect to target the head, neck, and shoulders.
A gel top pillow currently available from Pillow Talk is the Hilton Relax Therapy Gel Pillow, which usually has a price tag of $129. It’s described as having a gel-infused memory foam fill and removable cooling cover. While memory foam is designed to mould to your specific neck and head shape, this kind of pillow is boasted of providing better spinal alignment.
According to Pillow Talk, Greenfirst microfibre pillows offer a hypoallergenic solution against dust mites. Soft cotton covers from the brand are claimed to be treated with Greenfirst, a natural and anti-dust mite treatment made using lemon, lavender and eucalyptus essential oil extracts.
These pillows have twin-needled edging with green self-piping, and contain a 350g microfibre fill for pillows in the standard size (48cm x 73cm). There is an option to have a smaller amount of filling in the junior size, which has the same dimensions as the standard size pillow. Baby size (40cm x 60cm) pillows are also available with 150g of microfibre fill.
