Pillow Forms Product Spotlight Video
Polyester pillows are cheaper than down. They are firmer and hold their original shape, but over time can flatten and become misshapen and lumpy.
Down pillows can be shaped and molded, so if you want to be able to chop your pillows, down is the way to go. They are softer, more resilient and last longer than polyester filled pillows. When you sit against them they will mold to your shape, but when you fluff them, they will puff up and return to their original shape.
Down pillows are made with a combination of down and feathers. Down is the fluff underneath the feathers on a goose or duck, which is very light and soft.
Feathers are heavier and provide support. Pillows are filled with different ratios of down to feathers. 5/95 pillows are 5% down, 95% feathers. 25/75 and 50/50 pillows contain a higher ratio of down, making them more expensive.
The 100% cotton covers on all our down pillow forms are featherproof.
You can also get pillows that are a combination of polyester fiber and down and feathers, which provide a compromise between shape, support and softness.
