Down and Feather Pillow Facts:
Some information about your pillows which you may find useful and possibly entertaining!
Back to the Chinese for a moment.. In ancient China, the 'shitou zhentou' was a pillow made out of jade and it was believed that as you slept on it you would gain intelligence, be cured of headaches and depression.
Down is not only extremely soft but it's also the world's best insulators retaining heat in the many small air pockets naturally created by it's structure. Down does have a 'down-side' and that is if it gets wet. If you give your uncle -who is known to drool when napping- a down filled pillow, please include a moisture proof cover!
Down and feather pillows sometimes get a bad 'rap' when it comes to allergies. Studys indicate that it is in fact not the feathers causing the problem, but dust mites which have infested the pillow due to improper feather pillow care.
There are people who do suffer feather allergies but they are rare. We have special pillow covers which assure a safe and comfortable nights sleep.
