Throw Pillow Stuffing?

I've got a couple of sofa throw pillows that could stand some  
stuffing inside.  Would just a new pillow form do the trick or
would that stuff become flat as a flitter in two years?  Any
suggestions would be welcome.

While at JoAnn Fabrics today I did look at pillow forms as well
as some stuffing for pillows that were silk or silk-like fiber
fill.  Any opinions??

I have used the JoAnn's poly-fil pillow forms, they hold up pretty  
well.  But as I understand it, high-end designers use down.

For instance:
https://www.pillowdecor.com/Feather-Feather-Down-Pillow-Inserts-and-Pillow-Forms-s/77.htm

NAYY, and I have never used that site, just offering an alternate  
opinion. You can also get feather/down pillow forms at JoAnn's:

Ok, thanks!  I did take out the inserts that are in two of the four
pillows that need restuffing.  What a sad looking lot they were,  
hahahahaaa!

I remember my mother using old pantyhose a hundred years ago to stuff
throw pillows.  They worked quite well but I think she used too many
nylons.  But that was back when EVERYBODY wore hose so it wasn't  
difficult to soon have enough to plump up those pillows.

I have some ancient throw pillows stuffed with Kapok.  The covers have
worn out, the filling is still fluffy.

I had to look that up and still not sure what it is nor have I ever
seen it.

When I asked in the local fabric store where I could find the kapok,  
the young clerk looked like I had grown an extra head, she had never  
heard of it either. Turned out the clerks in the home dec area DID  
know, and I was able to buy enough to re-fill some throw pillows.

I often use cheap fleece.
