For lovers of natural pillow fillings, down provides a super soft, luxurious feeling and is often warmer to the touch than feather pillow fillings.
Soft, Fluffy Feathers
Down is the soft fluffy feather, found beneath the outer feathers and for bedding, most often comes from a duck or goose.
Duck down is supremely soft and warm, yet provides a great natural support, adapting to the contours of your neck shoulders and head. Duck down pillows are generally slightly more budget friendly than goose down pillows.
Goose down pillows are widely considered to be slightly superior to duck down pillows. This is because of the size of goose down. Goose down is about the same size and looks like the head of a dandelion. It is a superb natural filling for down pillows, providing luxury and comfort levels that will ensure a great sleep.
For those who like the feel of a feather pillow but would like a warmer pillow for winter, you’ll appreciate the benefits of a feather and down pillow. These pillows have are usually filled with a higher percentage of feathers but have enough down filling to provide extra warmth and a super soft feel.
