Understanding feathers & down
As in any decorating decision, choosing a decorative pillow insert is a matter of preference. There are a few options you have, depending on what type of pillow you are partial to. Keep reading to find out which style is right for you.
A down cluster is fluffy and delicate. If you want to avoid always reshaping your pillows, down is the way to go. This filling is great for anyone requiring a hypoallergenic filling. However, the shapes of these pillows are not as long lasting compared to those with a feather filling.
Feather pillows are heavier than down and contain a quill running down the middle. These quills will give your pillow a structured shape. They will comfortably conform to your shape for those nights you spend curled up on the couch watching movies. If you don’t mind fluffing your pillows, feathers will allow you to have the perfect “karate chop” in the middle.
Down + Feather
It is not uncommon to see a combination of the fillings. Pillows with down and feathers tend to flatten out the quickest as the quills have a tendency to align with each other.
