Please note: This is a natural product, which will therefore always have a slight odour. This can be reduced by airing the product out for at least 48 hours prior to use. New products will have a stronger odour due to it being inside packaging for a period of time, but will gradually decrease over a few days.

Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Overwhelming 'natural' smell that didn't disappear I was expecting a degree of natural odour, as the product listing states. Despite airing these for several days before I finally tried them, the smell really was pretty overwhelming and noticeable. You'd get another burst of "chicken shed" smell every time you moved your head over the pillow. Otherwise, they did feel like a nice pillow, but the degree of smell wasn't something I've ever been troubled with, despite always having natural pillows. They were returned for a full refund. 23 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely pillows, but...... I recently purchased two of these pillows online. I was extremely pleased with the look and feel of the items. They certainly look very luxurious and also felt as though they would give a a good nights sleep, which is why I have given the product 5 stars Unfortunately I seem to have the same problem as others have mentioned further down this review. When I first opened the package there was an overpowering smell from the pillows (I feel it is of unwashed feathers) On reading the enclosed packaging slip I did as requested and 'aired' them outdoors for 3 days (it only stated 2 on the information leaflet) but the odour although now fainter, still remains. I shall continue to 'air' them outside for a couple more days but if I am unable to get rid of this odour completely, I fear I must return them to JL. On the information slip it states that a goose down item is made from natural products and some odour can be expected but I have never found this to be the case before and I have been using pillows and duvets containing feathers and down for most of my life. I wonder whether an alternate supplier needs to be found JL? On a more positive note....the pillows do appear to be of the same lovely quality that I have always received from JL, just such a shame about the odour. 09 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfortable very pleased with these pillows, comfortable no longer have stiff neck and appears to have stopped the "blocked up feeling" in the mornings too! 22 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant pillows These pillows may be expensive but they are worth every penny! Comfortable, washable and perfect in every way. I certainly wouldn't buy any other pillows for myself. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by very comfortable I have problems with my neck and shoulder and this pillow moulds well to my head and allows me a comfortable nights sleep. The assistant in the Chester store was very helpful and enabled me to try several different pillows, so I was confident that I had chosen the right one for me. It was quite expensive but worth the money. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Suited my requirements perfectly. The medium to firm rating is exactly that and is very comfortable. It proves that it is better to spend as much as you can afford to provide a good nights sleep. We have the same pillow for my wife and we would recommend this pillow to anyone. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfectly Plump Choosing a new pillow is difficult. Others I have tried range from hollowfibre to duck feather and down, along with a variety of shaped memory foam pillows with a spectacular array of price-tags. This goose down pillow sat squarely in the middle of the price range I have shelled out and felt like a well made, quality product when I inspected the display pillow at my local JL At Home. It is so plump that it really fills up a standard pillowcase, yet gives just enough to feel like I'm sleeping on a cloud with very even support; far superior to my much more expensive memory foam one. This pillow is perfect for side sleepers, but if you sleep better on your back, I would suggest the softer version as the plumpness remains high throughout a good night's slumber, and a lower fill would make for better neck alignment. The sense of luxury in the texture of this pillow cannot be faulted. 06 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by a good pillow A good pillow if you like something more substantial and supportive! Seems like it will last a life-time. 14 April 2015
