John Lewis New Fine European Duck Down Standard Pillow, Medium

Product information

Comfortable and supportive, this luxuriously soft standard pillow from our duck down range is filled with 90% duck down and 10% duck feather and is encased in a woven jacquard cotton cover with piped detail.
Down-proofed to prevent any down or feathers from disturbing your sleep, it is naturally breathable.

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

John Lewis New Fine European Duck Down Standard Pillow, Medium 2.9 5 14 14
No smell and no back ache! I was a little cautious to purchase the pillow after reading about problems with the pillow being smelly but I haven't experienced any odours and I can honestly say that it's the first time I have woken without backache. Excellent quality and value. 24 December 2014
So comfy! These were our first down pillows - we've always bought synthetic in the past, but thought we would take the plunge and buy down this time. we bought 4 and i would never go back, they've just got that luxury hotel feel when you get into bed! 18 November 2014
Pungent odour The smell from this pillow had a pungent animal odour. Despite leaving it out to breathe for 5 days, the smell was as strong as ever. Took it back and got a different type of pillow 16 September 2014
Very disappointed, smelled fantastically bad. After going through a blind touch test in store, it seemed I prefered the feel of this duck pillow. I wish I smelled it though, or even read these reviews. It smells... really smells. Opening it up at home, my pallet interpreted it as more mouse wee than duck smell, either way it's unpleasant. Maybe I was unlucky with strength of the stench but after 5 washes and 2 soaks, it's not shifting. Very disappointed with John Lewis as I expected higher quality. Waste of money. 04 September 2014
ultimately not usable! This pillow would have been ideal but sadly we were defeated by the awful farmyard smell which just does not dissipate. Earnestly hope the manufacture investigates this urgently! 29 July 2014
Comfortable (soft) pillow The pillow is soft, but just about supportive enough for me. It works as a top pillow over a harder one. I haven't suffered feathers poking through that I read of with some pillows. It does need a good airing though. I don't think the smell out of the bag is as offensive as some would have you believe, but I would give it serveral days as a minimum. 20 July 2014
Awful smell The pillow is average - reasonably comfortable but the smell is really disturbing. I washed it, aired it out, sprayed it with dettol - it just won't come out! I have to buy a new pillow as this one was a waste of money. 14 June 2014
Scrunchable comfort I find this pillow both soft and scrunchable - unlike the foam filled variety. It does not exhibit the unpleasant odours characteristic of other similar products. Good value and highly recommended. 01 June 2014
