How to Choose Feather Beds

1 Understand the styles of feather beds we offer and how differently they sleep

The Classic Feather Bed

Our Classic Feather Bed, or mattress topper, is a traditional three channel (75%) feather, (25%) down, blend designed for those that like a big billowy look and feel to their beds. You don't sleep "on it" as much as you sleep "in it". These beds are VERY thick, so thick in fact, that when you lay down on the feather bed night after night you realize you are sleeping in a very shallow channel created by the weight of your body while sleeping. It's very cozy and warm. When you change the fitted sheet or Feather Bed protector, which we highly recommend you use, many of our customers take that opportunity to re-fluff their feather and down feather bed so it's like new. It's like sleeping "in" a warm cloud. Since this feather and down blended feather bed is made with Hungarian goose feathers it's not uncommon for a feather quill to poke through the 230 thread count Egyptian cotton when fluffed or jumped on.

The Goose Down Bed

Although our all goose down feather bed, or mattress topper, is called a "feather bed," we have meticulously hand picked or sorted all the feathers from the down clusters to bring you the ultimate in luxury, a Hungarian goose down mattress topper of impeccable quality and softness. After we try to remove the feathers from the down clusters we stuff it into a 12" baffle box design edged with a 2" gusset to allow the Hungarian goose down to reach their maximum loft. A baffle box designed feather bed, or down comforter, is the most difficult design to manufacture and fill with a material, down clusters, that simply float away with your every breath. These are very light, very soft, and very difficult to make but the result is unsurpassed in the world of "feather beds" and/or mattress toppers.

The Baffle Box Design

Unlike our Classic three (3) channel feather bed our baffle box design prevents our Hungarian goose down from shifting. If you can imagine two flat sheets laid one on top of the other and then sewn together without actually touching each other, almost like twelve 12" pizza boxes sewn together and filled with Hungarian goose down, then you have some idea how difficult this design is to build. The top and the bottom sheets, which are actually called 'ticking' or sometimes the 'shell', are separated by another piece of fabric, approximately 2" in height, which then completes the baffle. This design allows the goose down to reach it's maximum loft without being constrained by the outer shell, or ticking, of our goose down bed mattress topper.

2 Pick Your Size

3 Pick Your preferred Fill Power

When it comes to our goose down beds fill power still means finer quality. However, when it comes to something that you sleep on, like a feather bed, and not under, like a down comforter, fill power means resilience and longevity. The higher the fill power the higher the quality, the higher the quality the larger the down cluster, the larger the down cluster the more resilient and longer it will last. So a higher fill power feather bed will last longer and provide support longer than a feather bed of lower fill power. So spending the extra money on a higher fill power feather bed means it won't need replacing as soon as a feather bed with a lower fill power. It may be more expensive but it is certainly a better value.
