Down and feather bedding products — such as pillows and comforters — have many distinct and natural advantages over other types of bedding.
Down is nature’s best insulator and offers the sleep-inducing benefits of warmth without weight.
Down naturally breathes, meaning that it wicks away body moisture rather than trapping it. The breathability of these products also allows them to adjust to the amount of heat released by the body, so users will not be subjected to sleep disruptions that can result from the effects of overheating. Long gone are the nights of waking to throw covers on and off!
Contours to the Body
The softness of down and feather pillows not only feels great, but allows them to conform to the body more naturally than many synthetic fibers or foam pillows. When using a down and feather bed pillow, the neck and shoulder muscles are less strained, as the head is naturally cradled—whether sleeping on your side, stomach or back.
The breathability of down and feather products prevents moisture from being trapped in the fibers, which can create an environment in which dust mites thrive. Additionally, the tightly woven 100% cotton fabric casings of down and feather products prevent slender feathers from escaping through a loosely woven fabric also serves as a barrier to dust mites.
