We often get approached by camps and girl guide directors to purchase our polyester pillow stuffing. We are always delighted to be able to help out educational and youth-oriented institutions. Nusso is a family-owned and operated business, so family-oriented organizations are very important to us. There is a common question we get: How much stuffing do I need? (This is actually a common question across the broad spectrum of our clientele but is often more prevalent with the smaller institutions.
Here's a quick breakdown of estimated fill requirements for a few key sizes:
14" x 14": 0.6 lbs
16" x 16": 0.8 lbs
18" x 18": 1.0 lbs
These are good baselines for determining how much stuffing you would have to buy to have enough for your project. Many customers are delighted at how engaged children can be making there own pillows and stuffing it themselves. When you consider teddy bear stuffing, it becomes a little bit more complicated. A small teddy bear will probably take anywhere between a half a pound and one pound, but this can vary wildly. If you want the bear to have a big belly, you'll need to fill it more.
If you are looking for a great, interactive project, buy some pillow cases at your local linen store and then come to Nusso for some hypoallergenic polyester pillow stuffing.
