Feather Pillows FAQ's
What is a feather pillow?
The best feather pillows are primarily made using the smallest and softest feathers of the goose. Typically speaking, smaller feathers are softer and lighter and of higher quality. Typically speaking, the smaller soft feathers help trap the air warmed by the animals body.
You might remember visiting your Grandma’s house as a child and spending the night. When it came time to go to sleep, you laid your head on the pillow, only to find that it was much different than the pillow that you were used to. This is because it was made of feathers. Now depending on the quality of pillow that Grandma had, you might remember it being the most comfortable night’s sleep you have had in a long time.
With Down and Feather Company, you can have this experience again, and this time make sure that every facet of your pillow is made of the most quality materials in the world. We have searched the globe to find the best materials, so we can give you the most lavish and magnificent pillow possible. We do this because we understand what a good night’s sleep can do for you.
What is the best feather pillow for side sleepers?
The best feather pillow for side sleepers are feather pillows that fill the area between the crown of your shoulder and the side of your head. We call this are your 'comfort gap'. The broader your shoulders the wider your 'comfort gap' the thicker the pillow needed for your to be comfortable while sleeping on your side.
When you are looking for the highest quality feather pillows, you need to make sure you know where your feathers are coming from. Typically, you want smaller feathers for your pillows because they are softer, and have a greater ability to trap air. They are also lighter, giving your pillow a cushier feel. At Down and Feather Company, we choose to get our feathers from the Hungarian white goose, because they are known for having soft, supple feathers.
What's the difference between feather pillows?
We also sell two different varieties of feather pillows. You can choose between a 75:25 ratio percentage of feathers to down, or a 100% feather variety. If you are looking for a mix of feathers and down, you can choose between our Snuggle Soft or Natural Nights versions. If you want a pillow that is made of all feathers, you can look into our Hotel Collection or Original feather pillows.
Our Snuggle Soft line of down feather pillows feature an Egyptian cotton shell that is pearl white and has double stitched corded edges. Egyptian cotton is widely regarded as the finest cotton in the world and has proven time and again to be the most comfortable cotton you can choose. The Snuggle Soft not only will comfort you throughout the night, but also give your bed a luxurious look.
The Natural Nights down feather pillow is also hypo-allergenic, and is made with 100% organic materials. No dangerous chemicals were used during any step of the process in its creation, and all of the materials come from organic sources. The edges are double row stitched and corded just like the Snuggle Soft pillow, which adds to its longevity as well as its aesthetic appeal.
The Hotel Collection Jumbo Pillow is made from 100% Hungarian white goose feathers, and is perfect for any sleep style. Because we use only the finest and most comfortable feathers, you will find that our feather pillows do not poke out as the cheaper variety will. Just like our down feather pillows, these come with an Egyptian cotton shell ensuring its quality.
Finally there is the Original feather pillow. This is the one that we have been selling since the beginning, and will remind you of the feather pillows from days gone by. Do not worry though, we have perfected its feel over the years and have managed to create a luxurious pillow with a classic feel. It is wrapped in a blue and white cotton shell and has knife edge stitching.
I still can't decide?
If you are still deciding between a down or feather pillow, consider this. With a down pillow, you tend to sleep in the pillow, while with a feather, you will sleep on the pillow. This is a very important distinction and should be taken into account when choosing what is right for you. If you are someone that likes to mold your pillow to the perfect shape, then a feather pillow is a perfect choice for you.
We also sell two different varieties of feather pillows. You can choose between a 75:25 ratio percentage of feathers to down, or a 100% feather variety. If you are looking for a mix of feathers and down, you can choose between our Snuggle Soft or Natural Nights versions. If you want a pillow that is made of all feathers, you can look into our Hotel Collection or Original pillows.
