Six pounds of shredded latex stuffed each of these economical chair cushions, actually 5.5 lbs. in the smaller one and 6.5 in the larger one. I’m impressed that the amount of fill we send out with our standard shredded latex pillow kit (which is enough to overstuff a standard pillow) filled out these cushions so well. The bounce will be less solid and supportive than a solid piece of latex, but sometimes budgets choose fun, decorative fabrics like these ones instead of traditional solid foam. The life of shredded latex is just as long as it in its large state.
