Down and Feather Pillows

Down and Feather Pillows

Feather Down pillows contain both feathers and down, while Down pillows contain only the down and no feathers.  Pillows containing feathers are pliable, lending well to folding, bending, or scrunching, while the down provides support.  This is a desirable feature for multi-position sleepers or for pillows used to support knees, or arms.  Down pillows contain no quills or straight feather fibers, but instead contain only the fluffy, insulating fuzz found near the end of the quill.  Down pillows retain their shape and are lighter than feather down.
