There are so many different types of pillows available today that shopping can be overwhelming. Memory foam, down, microbead, even water pillows are an option in today’s saturated bedding markets.

There are two types of feather pillows:

1.Down Pillow: Down is the fuzzy insulator underneath the feathers of a duck or goose. Goose down is larger and fluffier than duck, which is why they seem to be preferred. Larger down clusters provide more loft and will last longer. They are very durable, but some people do have allergies to down. Down pillows are also more expensive, but because they will last the longest with proper care they are a good bargain. You will see a fill number associated with down pillows, like 600, 700, or 800. The higher the fill number, the more loft and firmness you will have with the product. 

Down’s cheap little brother - feather pillows

2.Feather pillows : are typically blend of feathers and down. Feathers are heavier and provide more support than down alone. However, they do have quills and will wear down quicker. The quills will poke through and escape the pillow, which is thought to be a sign of good luck. However, as you lose feathers, you lose support. Feather blend pillows are less expensive. Most people grew up with these type of pillows, so it is kind of like sleeping with a comfortable friend.


The reason we have this choice, is because a proper pillow is important for a good nights sleep. There are so many different types of pillows available today. Memory foam, down, microbead, even water pillows are an option in today’s saturated bedding markets. All for a good nights sleep.
