Fillings Range

100% Duck Feather Pillows

100% Duck Feather Pillows

Duck feathers are generally a lot smaller than goose feathers and feature long quills with fraying fibers that portray a traditional ‘feather shape’. Quite commonly over time these quills tend to poke through the pillow or duvet which can be quite uncomfortable during usage. Duck feather pillows and duvets tend to be a lot cheaper than ones containing down feathers, although it is quite usual for them to flatten over time and after washing, lessening the longevity of the products. Duck feather pillows can be beneficial for sleepers having difficulty with temperature and firmness, although they do not provide the same level of pressure relief as some of the other synthetic filling materials.

100% Goose Feather Pillows

100% Goose Feather Pillows

Very similar to Duck feathers, though Goose feathers are
usually a lot softer than duck feathers and have a lesser risk of
protruding stalks. People who are susceptible to allergies
should be aware when using feather pillows that they may be
at an increased risk when using these types of products. These
pillow filling materials are an excellent option when controlling
sleeping temperature and provide soft, gentle support for front
and back sleepers as they are malleable. As with Duck feathers,
Goose feather pillows are machine washable, although it is
worth noting that you should ensure the product is completely
dry before use. If the pillow is not dried properly before use,
there is an increased risk in mould harbouring within the
stuffing.

Duck Down Pillows

 Duck Down Pillows

Duck Down feathers differ from regular Duck feathers as their
purpose is to provide the bird with a natural form of insulation.
They can be identified by their full, fluffy, clusters that traps
layers of heat between its fibres. Duck down feathers do not
contain any quills, eliminating protrusions and pokes. Pillows
filled with down feathers tend to be more expensive to
purchase, however they are known to be more resilient and
have increased longevity with the proper care. In general, Duck
down tends to be much less expensive than Goose down
feathers as the supply is more widely available.

Goose Down Pillows

Goose Down Pillows

Goose down feathers are generally a lot larger in size in
comparison to Duck down feathers. The bigger the size of the
down the higher the fill power, this results in a fluffier pillow
and a more cloud like sleep experience. The reason for the
difference in size between Goose down and Duck down is
generally from the environments the animals tend to live in.
Geese are typically found in colder climates and therefore they
produce larger down clusters. Goose down is commonly
considered to be better quality than Duck down, however there
really isn’t much difference between the two. Both Goose and
Duck down feathers make for excellent filling materials and can
be a great investment due to their durability.

Wool Pillows

Wool Pillows

Wool is renowned for its capability to regulate body
temperature during the night when used in bedding products.
Regardless of the seasons, Wool has the ability to wick moisture
away from the skin and has been used for centuries as a
natural filling material for pillows, mattresses and duvets. There
are so many benefits from using wool as a filling material,
mainly due to its hypoallergenic and its dust mite resistance. It
is an excellent choice for the environment as it is cruelty free to
the animal, sustainable, natural and comfortably soft. Research
suggests that people who sleep with wool filled products
generally have a less disturbed sleep quality and help with
those who suffer with night sweats and hot flushes.

Hollowfibre Pillows

Hollowfibre Pillows

Hollowfibre pillows are filled with a synthetic material, similar to
polyester, and are one of the most popular pillow filling choices
in the UK today. This filling option is very affordable, making for
a less expensive product that is readily available. They are very
easy to maintain and are machine washable, making for an
efficient, quick and easy clean. Hollowfibre fillings are super
versatile and play an essential role in aiding many sleepers and
various positions, generally they are soft enough for stomach
and front sleepers whilst also providing the right amount of
pressure relief for side and back sleepers.

Horsehair Pillows

Horsehair Pillows

For centuries, Horsehair was a main element during the process
of creating pillows and bedding products. Few materials have a
built-in ventilation facility such as the one Horsehair does. Each
individual strand of Horsehair acts as a miniature tube,
encouraging the flow of fresh air and aiding in the removal of
excess moisture. It has been proven to be completely free of
allergens, which is an excellent option for people suffering with
various allergies, along with being. a completely organic,
natural substance which has its very own anti-bacterial and
anti-fungal resistance. Studies suggest that people who sleep
with Horsehair products generally enjoy a deeper, undisrupted
nights sleep.

Camel Wool Pillows

Camel Wool Pillows

With very similar properties and advantages as Sheep’s wool
pillows, Camel’s wool makes for an excellent option when
choosing a pillow filling material. This organic substance has a
variety of benefits, particularly from those suffering with
allergies and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Keeping sleepers warm in the winter and cool in the summer,
Camel wool is praised for its thermo-regulating properties,
resulting in a more comfortable and enjoyable night’s sleep.
Researchers and scientists believe that like Sheep’s wool, the
Camel wool will absorb excess humidity and sweat during the
night, leaving the skins moisture levels balanced and organic.

Buckwheat Pillows

Buckwheat Pillows

Buckwheat is a natural, malleable pillow filling option. It is
proven to adapt to the natural curves and contours of the body,
allowing for pressure relief and added support during sleep.
This natural, organic material is believed to aid in cervical
alignment which once achieved improves relaxation and
exceptional quality rest. The Buckwheat hulls encourage
constant air circulation throughout the pillow, keeping the user
cool and dry throughout the night. Research shows that
Buckwheat as a pillow filling will reduce stress on the neck,
head and spine, which in turn provides pressure relief and an
overall better quality of sleep.

Kapok Pillows

 Kapok Pillows

Kapok is an organic substance sourced from the gigantic Kapok
tree, found in tropical rainforest canopies. As a pillow filling
material, Kapok is praised for being completely safe,
biodegradable, malleable and mouldable allowing for excellent
support and comfort, along with maintaining uniform density
and its original shape. It is generally considered to be hypo-
allergenic and completely free from any harmful toxins and
synthetic substances. Quite often, Kapok is compared to down
feathers as it has similar levels of density and softness.
Harvesting the Kapok does not harm the tree in any way,
making this a completely eco-friendly material which comes
from a sustainable, reliable source.
