Shredded organic latex is the same rubber that we sell in 3″ slabs, only it is shredded in tiny pieces and in a mix of firmnesses. It is ideal for pillows and can also be used for any stuffing project.

I liken a shredded latex pillow to a feather pillow as it can be fluffed, but the fill stays in the same spot without sinking. It can be punched into place and is deadly in pillow fights (especially in an extra large pillow case). Instead of floating on top like a kapok pillow, your head is slightly nestled in the shredded natural latex. Natural latex is mold and mildew resistant, doesn’t harbor dust mites and is somewhat heat regulating, like wool.

If you want a specific firmness, visit our Custom Cuts Fall Off for pieces we don’t send through the shredder. Here you can select your own firmness and shred it by hand.

Shredded latex requires no special care. It may be spritzed with vinegar to sanitize it. While leaving it in the sunlight and machine washing it inside its case are possibilities, both treatments will shorten its life. How much it will shorten it, we have no idea.

Rarely but occasionally you may find permanent marker spots, paper labels or a bit of the plastic packaging in the shreds. The black vinyl is the plastic that the shredded latex was shipped to us in.  The labels are labels that Arpico puts on the latex in Sri Lanka stating its naturalness and firmness. Since our shredded latex comes from fall off of mattress pieces which have been stickered, those stickers are sometimes part of the shreds.
