Product information

An everyday pillow that is soft, comfortable and surrounds you in quality, this standard pillow is filled with 100% duck feather encased in a plain 240 thread count cotton cover.

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 3.7 out of 5 by 66 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good nights sleep Now we have received our new bed (base, mattress and headboard) from John Lewis I have started to use the pillow and I find the whole combination of the bed and pillow fabulous and am now enjoying a good nights sleep for the first time, in a long time 10 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Soft pillow The pillow is good quality but definitely a soft one rather than soft/medium. 10 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very very smelly We purchased these pillows 2 months ago and have had to remove them from our bedroom due to the awful smeill.i have been accusing my boyfriend of having a 'smelly head' for the past 2 months and it's only after reading all these reviews that I have had to apologise and admit that it not him that stinks but the pillows. Although the pillows are comfortable the smell was unbearable and got worse over time. We have followed the washing/drying instructions but they are now worse than before. Frebreeze also hasn't worked. JL are you able to help? Are we still able to get a refund or credit note without the recipe or packaging? 20 October 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Vile smell which made me wretch I wish I'd read these reviews first. The pillows are packaged well so you won't notice the vile animal smell until it's too late. It has made my whole bedroom smell. I tried washing the pillow which has only made the smell worse and probably means I can't get my money back. I nearly wretched. I can't believe John Lewis are selling these. 25 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Smelly !!! Just purchased duvet, pillows, duvet covers etc to replace those that daughter is taking to Uni. What a smell. I thought it was the pillow case protectors that I also purchased - had them outside for 2 hours and now the room smells awful. Will need to return.... why are these still on sale? Have to drive all the way back to Chichester tomorrow to change them - not happy! 05 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Smelly pillows! We bought four of these pillows for our new holiday home and our first guests complained of the smell. We had to bring them back home and the car now smells like a farmyard! We see from earlier reviews that this problem has been going on for months and we are very surprised at John Lewis not sorting it out. We have spend a lot of money at John Lewis kitting out our new holiday home and feel badly let down. 05 August 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wow! They smell! I should have really listened to the reviews more. Boy, they smell! And everything that comes in touch with them smells too! I have been airing them for good 15 hours now and NO IMPACT. I won't be able to return them as they were sent to our holiday home in a different country. But they are practically unusable. I am so dissapointed,... :( 30 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent quality Really good value for money, excellent quality, they keep their shape and are very comfortable. 09 July 2014
