A guide to choosing the perfect pillow

Choosing the right pillow is, on the surface, a relatively simple process. But there are some things to consider before you go ahead and purchase. For example, which type of pillow filling do you plump for? Goose down feather pillows? Or duck down pillows?

Remember that pillow fillings are different for a reason

Pillows have different fillings for a reason. For example, goose feather pillows are different from duck feather and down pillows. Goose feathers are usually softer and larger individually, therefore offering more support. However, duck feathers are still a favourite and are very durable. Down is softer than feathers and considered to be the softest, most luxurious filling available. To get the right balance, our goose feather and down pillows contain the ideal combination of both feathers to provide support and down for softness.  

Dusk Goose Down Pillows

Consider allergies

Goose down pillows and duck feather pillows can sometimes cause a reaction for those with allergies. If you have an allergy, or if you want to buy pillows for someone who does, then consider DUSK’s Feels Like Down Super Soft pillow collection. Packed with down-quality fill, these pillows are breathable and lightweight and made from 100% microfibre with a soft skin casing.

Focus on fabric

In other words, don’t dismiss the fabric that covers your bedding pillow. Find out the type of material that directly covers your pillow. This is again important for those who suffer from allergies or have sensitive skin. While goose down pillows and duck down pillows provide the ultimate filling, make sure the casing of your pillow as just as high quality.

At DUSK, our range of pillows are made with 100% cotton percale which means that thanks to the unique properties of cotton, they are fresh to the touch and easy to keep clean. Cotton is also a material described as ‘breathable’ which means that it helps you keep cool and fresh on those warm summer evenings.
