When looking for the perfect luxury pillows it can be a bit confusing as to what kind of fill is best to buy, so it’s always handy to have a little advice from the experts.

At Dusk, we know our stuff when it comes to pillows – from goose feather pillows to duck down pillows – we can help you decide which one is best for you. Read on and find out how you can capture that wonderful night’s sleep by investing in the perfect pillows for you.

Should I buy goose feather or duck feather pillows?

Duck feather and goose feather pillows are synonymous with luxury and comfort. But when it comes to choosing what is best for you, it’s helpful to know the difference between the two kinds of fill. Feathers are bigger, stronger and offer strong support while you sleep. While down is softer and warmer, providing insulation and a gentle quality, described by many as ‘cloud-like’. Feathers are designed for the outer plumage of a bird, ideal for protecting against the cold elements and down is found on the front of a plumage.

Are goose down pillows the best?

Down is available as either goose or duck filling, a lot of the time goose is the preferred option because geese tend to have fluffier feathers, but the choice is very much down to personal preference and duck down pillows are still a favourite with many.

The natural choice

If goose or duck feather and down pillows are fillings that don’t agree with you due to allergies, then it is worth looking for a synthetic range that doesn’t trigger irritations. Dusk’s ‘feels like down’ range is made from lightweight, 100 % Microfibre filling, with a soft outer casing that rests smoothly against the skin. The filling provides a medium level of support and is able to retain its shape.
