About this deal

US/CANADA BEDDING SIZES: Approximate matches to UK sizes are US King/UK Super king, US Queen/UK King, US Full/UK Double and US Twin/UK Single. Body Pillow: Body pillows can be 54 inches or longer. Feather and down body pillows are less common, but many body pillows are filled with down alternative. A body pillow supports a variety of sleeping positions, especially for pregnant women or people who like snuggling with a pillow while sleeping.

Some birds will only use their nest once whereas others will return to the same nest or nesting area throughout the season or each year. Moldability refers to how snuggly a pillow is and whether it can be scrunched into different shapes to provide more or less support. Down pillows are very moldable due to their soft fill. They are a great option for people who like snuggling with a pillow or prefer a bolster between their knees. The cover is made of organic cotton that has been certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard, one of the world’s foremost authorities on organic fabrics. The down fill has also earned a certification from the International Down Standard, ensuring no animals are harmed or treated unfairly when the down is collected. Boll & Branch washes the down fill three times to remove as many allergens as possible. As a result, the pillow is hypoallergenic and its fill holds up well over time. The pillow can be washed and dried in any household machine. Another feature we love about this pillow is that it’s quite versatile – it’s suitable for all types of sleepers.What’s more, you won’t have to worry about dealing with annoying loose threads due to its double-needle corded edges. Cons Sumptuously soft as they are, down-filled pillows can present a problem for allergy sufferers. Scoom created this pillow with that in mind. It is made from a core of Hungarian goose feather sandwiched between chambers of goose down, but it is finished with a special sateen cotton cover that’s tightly woven and down and dust mite-proof to make it hypoallergenic. It is certified by the Nomite anti-allergen standard; you won’t get any pesky feathers poking out of this one. Since down pillows tend to sink quite a bit, they may not provide enough support for some sleepers. Thankfully, many down pillow manufacturers offer these models with different loft and firmness options. Body Pillow: A body pillow is quite long – usually 54 inches or longer – but its width will be about 20 inches. You can sleep with a body pillow beneath your head while snuggling with it, a favored position among many pregnant women. Unfortunately, you’ll have a hard time finding body pillows made from authentic down. Down alternative body pillows are much more common. Another issue I encountered with testing other down pillows is a strong, musty smell that lingers long after first use. That didn’t apply to this one. I also noted that there is no sign of the feathers or down poking out through the tightly-woven cover.

Cushioning - to protect the eggs from the base of the nest as well as from the weight of the parent bird. Our goose down duvets have high 700 fill power. Fill weight is measured in GSM (grams per square metre). For example view our 9 tog king size goose down duvet for more duvet details. If you’re considering buying a product stuffed with down or body feathers, the first thought on your mind probably isn’t: “Where (or rather whom) did these feathers come from, and do I want to be supporting the industry that ‘harvested’ them?” But after learning about the animals involved in the down and feather industry, you will hopefully be determined to make your household and clothing feather-free. What is down? Additionally, the pillowcase is made of 320 thread count cotton, which adds a layer of luxury and softness to the pillow.So yes, down and feathers are technically “by-products” of the meat and egg industry… and the story of their production is just as disturbing as that of any other animal sourced product. As we know from the story of leather*** and other animal products like rennet, casein, blood/bone meal and manure, these “by-products” are very profitable (sometimes more profitable than the animals’ flesh or milk) and purchasing them perpetuates the cycle of animal abuse and use that they come from.
