Is covering pillows a good idea?
Pillowcases are essentially protectors for your pillows. By using a good pillowcase, you can prevent dust mites, bedbugs, and other allergens from getting into your pillow. It’s also a great hygiene practice to wash your pillowcase regularly.
How should you choose your pillowcase?
The following are two things to keep in mind when shopping for your next pillowcases.
When choosing new pillowcases, consider their fabric and material. If you’re someone who likes to feel cool when you sleep, or have skin allergies, TENCEL™ Lyocell pillowcases are a great option.

Pillowcases also act as protectors for your pillows, slowing down their wear and tear and keeping moisture and stains at bay. Arming your favorite pillow with a pillowcase can help it last for many years.
