Our legendary Old Fashion Original all Feather Pillow is just like the one at grandma's house.
This pillow is ideal if your primary sleep style is on your side and like rotating to your back or stomach.
Feathers sleep a lot firmer under compression, meaning when you rest your head on them, providing more support than a similar density all down pillow.
Our pillows sleep 'Thicker' as density;

What is The Original Feather Pillow?
The pillow that started it all. With over 100 years of pillow making and design experience, the Down & Feather Co. Original Feather Pillow is just like the one at grandma's house. This old fashion pillow is filled with premium quality 100% Hungarian goose feather and wrapped in an old fashion blue and white striped cotton shell and sealed using original knife-edge stitching.
This Old Fashioned Feather Pillow is filled with premium quality 100% Hungarian goose feather and wrapped in an old fashion blue and white striped cotton shell. Using higher quality Hungarian goose feather means fewer feathers will poke you while you sleep at night. If you are looking to replace the existing feather pillow that you have had for 25, 30 or even 40 years well here it is.
Just remember the one you are replacing has probably become very soft and broken in after decades of use. This one is brand new and may require both love and patience to feel like the pillow you are replacing.
Pillows with a unique personality?
Our feather pillows feel much different than our down pillows. You will sleep more “ON” our feather pillows and “IN” our down pillows. The Classic Feather pillow loves to be squeezed and mashed into the perfect shape to provide you support where you need it most. When you return to bed it's just like you left and not in its original "pillow shape". The Classic is a traditional design without gussets or chambers and filled with the finest Hungarian goose feather and Hungarian white goose down for lasting support.
What's the difference between the densities?
The best way to answer this question is actually to explain how we make the pillow a different density or thickness. Density; soft, medium, firm and extra firm is determined by how many ounces of down we fill the pillow with.
For example, our standard soft density 850 fill power goose down pillow has 14 ounces inside. The medium density pillow will have 16 ounces of down inside. The down inside the pillow is still very soft but now there is more of it making the pillow thicker so the pillows 'personality' of be very soft remains regardless of the amount of down used to make the pillow.
Is this pillow good for side sleepers?
This pillow is ideal if your primary sleep style is on your side and occasionally rotating to your back or stomach. Feathers sleep a lot firmer under compression, meaning when you rest your head on them, providing more support than a similar density all down pillow. As you roll to your back you will enjoy the support provided as the feathers compress under your head while remaining soft if you roll to your stomach. If you are not experiencing the support you hoped for while sleeping on your back just slide the pillow down your neck and just on top of your shoulders. That will allow the pillow to shape itself more around the neck than your head for added support
Can I wash a feather pillow?
Feathers are pretty incredible. Nature created the feather to perform many functions, one of which, is to keep the water away from the down clusters that actually trap the air and keep the bird from freezing to death during the cold winter months. So nature added just a touch of natural oils to help feathers wick away the water in order to keep the bird dry.
If you strip away the natural oils from the feathers they will be brittle and break more easily while you sleep. When brittle feathers break they have a tendency to be very sharp increasing the number of feathers that will poke you.
What's the best all feather pillow for side sleepers?
ANSWER: The pillow that fills your 'Comfort Gap'! That space between the crown of your shoulder and the side of your head when you sleeping on your side so your spine is as straight as possible.
What impacts my 'Comfort Gap'?
- Width of your shoulders. (women vs men)
- Firmness of your matress. (i.e. water bed vs. pillow top vs. sleeping on the floor)
- Sleep style (side sleeper, back sleeper, stomach sleeper)

The Original Feather Pillow reviews
Great company, great service. I wanted the old fashioned, all feather pillows of high quality. That’s exactly what I got! They are perfect for what I need for a good night’s sleep. The company is awesome! They understand quality and the very personal relationship we can have with our pillows! Thanks Feather & Down!
I have had the same pillow for the last 20 years and was searching for something that would serve me well for the next 20 years. Even on day 1 the new pillow was great! Instead of broken down feathers like my old one, this pillow had amazing fluff that lets you sink into it. Now my husband wants one of his own!
Best Pillows Ever These pillows are my favorite. It just like the pillows I had growing up as kid. I would highly recommend them.
Heavenly I thought maybe a brand-new feather pillow would be "stiff" for awhile..would need to be broken in. Nope! This pillow was so comfortable and moved with me through the night.. Sleep like a baby. Getting another one!!
Great Pillow I wanted a pillow like my grandma has had forever and this was exactly what I was looking for. Very high quality too
Your feather pillows remind me of my youth. Our pillows in those days were always feather. No matter what position you moved to you could always adjust the pillow to the most comfortable position.

- NECK PAIN
I have spinal cord damage in my neck resulting in spinal cord atrophy and 2 herniation. I must have bought 20 different kinds of pillows over the last decade, but this pillow has drastically lowered, if not eliminated, the body numbness and pain I have while sleeping and waking up. And it is cool or I can flip it to the cool side, unlike the petroleum based memory foam pillows I own so many of. I say this with tears in my eyes, thank God I found something that works and lets me sleep better!
I love it...I waited much to long to purchase this pillow. I’ll be purchasing one for my daughter.
In one word WINNER
I bought both the medium and the firm pillows. The medium was terrible. I woke up with my head on the matress, again, and I took the "quiz" they recommended and it was suggested my perfect loft was medium. I then tried the firm. While it is higher, I STILL find myself fluffing out to get it up higher to support my head without the feathers dispersing and my head winding up on the matress. I wasnt to try the extra firm but I think even though it may have the amount of feathers I need for support, it may be too high for me to sleep on.......
Brought back memories of my childhood ...... Staying at my grandpa and grandma‘s house with a feather mattress ...
