Q: How does feather and down percentages affect a pillows comfort?
Q: How does feather and down affect a pillows Comfort?
When trying to find the right pillow itís very
easy to get confused by the varying blends used to fill feather and down
pillows. This often leads customers to buy the wrong pillow for their sleep
When dealing with down/feather blended fill the down
provides the softness and the feathers provide the support. The higher the
feather percentage in a pillow the firmer the pillow. An example of a pillow
with a high percentage of feathers that is very firm and supportive is
Down Etc.ís 95% Feather 5% Down Diamond Support Pillow.
The softest pillow would be a
pillow filled with 95-100% down. At that percentage, individual feathers are almost entirely surrounded by down so there is little chance of feeling them.
This pillow will have a very, very soft feel.
Hopefully these tips will give you a better idea of what percentage of down to feathers will be perfect for you.
