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.

FWIW, it's the stuff that was used to fill life jackets before foam.
In the '70s I used to go canoeing wearing a life jacket that my Dad
brought home from WWII and it was still fine.

I buy my Throw pillow forms from WAWAK.com. They cary polyester and  
feather/down filling. They are really very reasonable.  I'm in the  
process of doing some new covers for my daughter and ordered some last  
week. If you hurry up you can catch the sale they have going until Nov.  
30th.
