You may not realize it, but the pillow you lay your head on is a huge part of creating a bed that feels like a slumber oasis. For many, a down or feather pillows may be the right choice.

Feather & Down Materials

Down is not the same thing as a feather pillow; this is a common misconception. Some pillows combine the two materials, though. Down pillows are made from quill-less feather clusters of the chest and underbelly of geese and ducks, while feather cushions are comprised of soft, quill-containing feathers from the wings and backs of the birds. Down holds its loft up to three times longer than synthetic alternatives and is very soft.
