Product details

If you are a side sleeper, have the larger side facing up. The negative wedge space creates a pocket for your shoulder giving head and neck good support and reducing pressure on your shoulder.

If you are a back sleeper, have the smaller side facing up. The slope provides support for the neck and neck muscles, letting you relax.

Although each side is designed specifically for either side or back sleep, the foam adapts to sleepers who transition from side to back or back to side during the night.

Small holes in the memory foam core allow air to circulate and wicks away moisture to keep you comfortable.

Choose this ergonomic pillow if you are a back or side sleeper.

The soft fabric cover breathes and wicks away moisture.

The cover is easy to remove and machine-wash at 140°F (60°C). This keeps your pillow nice and fresh, and wards off unwanted dust mites.

Enhanced-support pilloweleanorProvides better support than ordinary pillows.3
Nice but not perfectSUSANI have slept on my new pillow for several nights. Really enjoying its soft firmness. I’d like it a bit higher And cooler.4
Anti-snoring pillow?PatrickThe jury is still out on this one. My son claims that the Manviva cures his snoring, but Ikea doesn't offer it now. I was hoping that the Mjolkklocka is basically the same. It's apparently much bigger than the Manviva, but I didn't see a smaller pillow. This one is queen size. Anyway, my spouse seems to think that so far, the snoring is improved, but we won't know until more time has passed. In the meantime, I'm still getting used to what I'm calling my "stone pillow". Yep, it's firm. I don't like a soft pillow... but this one is FIRM. Takes a bit of getting used to.3
Not cooling head position andCindyNot cooling head position and not firm enough for maintaining side sleeper position2

Best supportive pillow for my neck!JanineMy partner has this pillow and I love it so I had to buy the exact same one. It feels very supportive and comfortable, especially after herniated discs in my neck.5

I have been using thisBRADLEYI have been using this pillow now a week and it's the best pillow ever5
Great pillowFernandoHigh quality at a fair price5
Perfect consistency, a little bit highAlisonI have been trying to find another pillow like one I bought at IKEA long ago with a curve cut in the bottom edge. It has a lovely squishy bread dough like texture. This is the most similar I've found. It is very slightly firmer and a bit higher than I'd like - It took some adjusting to, as the first night or two my neck got a little sore. But it is definitely the second best pillow I've ever had.4
why does it smell?dollysmells like chemicals. gave me a huge headache and puffy eyes. sad. i bought this pillow mjolkklocka before and it was fine. this new shipment has a funny odor. sucks1
Works great.AprilWorks great.5
Expensive for what it isEvitaIt’s a great firm pillow but I think the price point is quite high for what it is. Purchased this one because I couldn’t find any regular pillows at IKEA. They only seem to carry super flat ones for kids or the ones that cost a large fraction of my paycheque. Hope I’m wrong and my back feels better soon but I do t know that I’ll get over the buyers remorse.3
Not as comfortable as yourabreyNot as comfortable as your cheaper version. It’s too hard and very uncomfortable. Thinking of taking it back. Sorry!2

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organizations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.


What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.

Function solution

Better sleep comfort with ergonomic pillows

Being comfortable when you’re asleep is key for making the most of your waking hours. We believe in the power of sleep. And when your head and neck are well supported by a pillow, you snooze even better. But people sleep differently. Some are back sleepers, others sleep on the side or change position many times during the night. That’s why our ergonomic pillows come in many shapes and sizes, so we can all sleep like babies and wake up refreshed.

Form design process

A unique shape for different types of sleep

MJÖLKKLOCKA ergonomic pillow has a larger side that’s great for side sleepers as it creates a pocket for your shoulder, giving head and neck good support and reducing pressure on your shoulder. Flip it over to the smaller side and the slope lets your neck muscles relax when sleeping on your back. Although each side is designed for either side or back sleep, the cushioning memory foam adapts to sleepers who transition from side to back or back to side during the night.
