Fogarty is a famous sleep brand in the UK with more than 100 years of experience. It was first established in 1872 and was later bought by the retailer Dunelm. Since then, it has been exclusively sold by the said retailer.
It offers many sleep products — from mattresses, duvets to beddings and mattress and pillow protectors. However, it prides itself as a master crafter of pillows and quilt.
When it comes to its pillows, Fogarty offers a reasonably substantial variety, utilising different materials and blends to produce different firmness levels that cater to different kinds of sleepers.
They have anti-allergy ones for those who are extremely sensitive. They also use different materials, from natural to synthetic ones and fibres and foam.
In terms of the price range, their products are more on the cheaper side. The cheapest is £6, and the most expensive one is £35. For the most part, these products perform well and are of high quality. However, certain pillows have received negative reviews for being manufactured with any proper standard.

Fogarty Bamboo Memory Foam
There’s nothing like a bamboo pillow for sleeping. In addition to being naturally hypoallergenic, bamboo is also very soft to the touch and an excellent sleep material.
A second great advantage of bamboo is that it is naturally temperature-regulating, so your head will remain at the right temperature during the night. The filling is made from memory foam has a support rating of ‘soft,’ so it’s perfect for all types of sleepers, such as back sleepers, side sleepers, and stomach sleepers.
A memory foam pillow provides a sufficient amount of neck support and pressure relief so that you won’t wake up sore in the morning. Pillows, such as this one, are sold individually and require little to no maintenance as they’re machine washable and iron-free.
