Experts Discuss the Difference Between Feather & Down Pillows, Mason, Ohio

Investing in a quality pillow is important for a good night’s sleep, especially if you’re a light sleeper or have problems getting to bed at night. If you want to improve your daily rest, then one of the feather or down pillows from DOWNLITE may be ideal for you. Below, they’ve compiled some information about both options to aid in your decision. 

Feather Pillows 

Do you enjoy scrunching up pillows behind your head or between your legs? If so, feather pillows will be your best bet, as they’re more easily manipulated. Feathers are flat and have a spine, meaning they usually like to lay flat inside the pillow. This makes them thinner and more comfortable for those who don’t need a lot of support to get quality sleep. 

Down Pillows

Down comes from geese and, unlike feathers, its clusters are round and fluffy, making them much more supple. The quality of these products is determined by fill power, meaning the more down clusters a particular pillow is filled with, the softer it will be. A higher fill power will also enable them to retain their shape longer. 

Both down and feather pillows should be washed periodically to clean them and remove any dust or allergens that may have built up inside them over time. The best way to do this is by hand, but if that’s not an option, they can be run through the washer on a gentle cycle.
