The Waterproof & Wipe Clean P.W.A.H®

This has all the same ear protecting benefits and build quality that you’re used to with an Original P.W.A.H®, but it is Waterproof & Wipe clean.

If you find that your P.W.A.H® is constantly in the wash due to creams, ointments or other substances, this Waterproof and Wipe-Clean version is for you.

It is available as either The Original P.W.A.H® or The P.W.A.H® V2, with or without a pillowcase.

The fabric of the pillow is very soft and supple. It is soft and smooth polyurethane coated cotton.

What’s included?

Each version of The Waterproof & Wipe Clean P.W.A.H is available with or without a pillowcase.

Firmness and filling:

Our Coil Fibre is softer than memory foam and completely odourless. This is a premium filling made of small coils of fibre that allow air to pass through, producing loft and comfort. This makes for a plump pillow with a medium to firm feel.

It is similar in density and cost to feather down, yet it is also hypoallergenic, so is perfect for people with allergies

We are also pleased to offer British wool as an environmentally friendly alternative.

The firmness of the Original P.W.A.H® can be easily adjusted using our integrated super high-quality “YKK” brand zip.


We are happy to tell you that all of our plastic packaging is recyclable and our informational insert is made from recycled cardboard.

Where is it made?

As with all of our products, this is made in Liverpool, England, in the style of a true cottage industry.

All of our stuffing is made in Yorkshire, England, on machines built in 1952!

Q: Is the waterproof material stiff, noisy, or otherwise annoying?
A: We’re happy to report that our polyurethane coated cotton can not only withstand water ingress for 25 minutes, but it is actually lovely and soft. It also doesn’t rustle or make a noise, as you might expect from a Gore-Tex style fabric.

Q: What is the firmness of this pillow? 
A: The firmness of our pillows is completely adjustable by adding or removing stuffing. This can be achieved by using the integrated “YKK” brand zip. We stuff them to a medium firmness as it is better to put too much in than not enough. If you need more stuffing, please contact us and we can send some along to you.

Q: What is the best stuffing for me?
A: This video will help to explain our two different forms of stuffing – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L055FpB861A

Q: Can this pillow be machine washed? 
Yes, our pillows can be machine washed on a low heat.

Q: What are the differences between The PWAH V2® and The Original P.W.A.H®?
A: The PWAH V2 isn’t a replacement for The Original PWAH, it is simply an alternative. The V2 is larger and therefore more suitable as a standalone pillow. It has an innovative new pillowcase design which completely covers, or encapsulates, the hole. The sides of the pillow are “walled” to allow for more internal volume and therefore more loft or height.

It has a square rather than oval hole. Both square and oval holes are effective and so we wanted to provide a choice between the two.

Q: Which is more suitable for me? An Original PWAH® or a PWAH V2®?
A: If you like to sleep with two pillows, then The Original PWAH is a great choice because it works best sat atop your existing pillow. Or, if you’re looking for a smaller pillow, then again The Original PWAH would be the most suitable. However, if you’re looking for a larger pillow, or like to sleep with only one pillow, then The PWAH V2 is the better option.

Q: What are the dimensions?
A: Full dimensions, including hole size, can be found under the “additional information” tab.

Q: Does it come with a pillowcase?
A: Both versions can be purchased with or without a pillowcase. Additional pillowcases can be purchased separately.

Q: Do you accept returns?
A: Although we’re sure you’ll have great success with your PWAH®, we do accept returns.
