**********Please read notes on Shipping Charges*************

100% Kapok Fibre

Kapok fiber is harvested from a tree called the Ceiba tree or the silk cotton tree. The fiber is harvested and the trees are left standing.

The fiber fluff is buoyant. I was the choice stuffing for teddy bears until the invention of synthetic fibers in the 1950's.

A great alternative for stuffed toys, for those allergic to wool, but searching for a natural alternative.

If you need large amounts, please PM me and I can special order it for you.

Monika was so helpful with having me arrange pickup! very responsive and great communication. I have never used kapo before. Its so soft and fills my crochet toys well. Its a little messy, it seems to be natural and unprocessed, so it has little tree bits in it, but its so softy and lovely to work with, its worth it. Will buy again

Thank you, Monika @ theOliveSparrow, for packing the kapok so well and keeping the shipping cost down. I am happy with the product as well as knowing I am able to buy kapok within Canada. I am ordering more because my children and grandchildren love the feel of kapok pillows.

I love using kapok fiber to stuff my doggies. The fiber is perfect and the service is exemplary!

The seller was very clever and saved me a lot on postage by removing a wee bit of kapok from the order. I would no sooner hit the send button with a ?? that I received an answer. I will happily buy from her again. She has good chi 😊
