Are feather pillows good for you?
Yes, they are. Feather pillows offer a truly comfortable sleeping experience, making you feel almost weightless as you drift off to sleep. They are easy to configure in the most comfortable shape for you, and they provide increased support for your neck, shoulders and upper back. Compared to synthetic pillows, feather pillows definitely have the advantage – and they feel much more luxurious, too.
At Mattress & Pillow Science, we cater for all sleeping styles. You can find appropriate pillows for you whether you prefer to sleep on your tummy, side or back. It makes a genuine difference to have a pillow that has been designed for your preferred sleeping position.
What is the best feather pillow?
This is all down to your personal preference. Some people prefer to sleep in a higher position, while others favour a medium-height or low pillow. The best feather pillow is the one that feels most comfortable to you. Luckily, our range contains numerous options, including adjustable pillows for those who want a choice of sleeping positions.
When it comes to material, some people prefer goose feather pillows over a duck feather pillow. This is because goose feathers are larger, so the pillow can feel softer. However, again, this is a matter of personal taste. There are many people who prefer duck feather pillows, and we cater for all tastes.
What is the difference between feather and down pillows?
The difference is the type of feathers they are made from. Down is the soft fluff that occurs on the chest of the duck or goose. It is extremely soft and comfortable, and a goose down pillow is often regarded as the most luxurious pillow you can buy.
Feather pillows are made from feathers taken from the back of the goose or duck. These feathers are longer and slightly coarser. This means feather pillows can have a firmer feel than down pillows. They also tend to require plumping up more regularly to keep their shape.
Most feather pillows also contain some down to add softness and comfort. You can explore our range of down feather pillows to find exactly what you need.
How long can you keep a feather pillow?
If you take good care of your feather pillows, they can last between 10 and 20 years. Try not to get them wet or expose them to oily substances such as face creams. Always use pillow protectors and pillow cases to keep your pillows cleaner. If your pillows really need washing, take them to the dry cleaner's.
You can also extend the life of your feather pillows by plumping them up regularly and storing them properly. Don’t compress your travel pillow to store it when you’re not using it – this can break down the feathers.
Are feather pillows cruel?
In general, feathers and down are by-products of the poultry industry. Almost 100 per cent of feathers and down used in pillows around the world are harvested after the bird is dead. There have been some welfare concerns about live plucking raised in other countries, but the practice is illegal in Australia.
Obviously, however, feather pillows are not suitable for vegans as they do contain real bird feathers.
