John Lewis Hungarian Goose Down Standard Pillow, Medium/Firm

Product information

Made in our very own Herbert Parkinson factory in Lancashire, this pillow brings premium bedding into your home at an affordable price.

Hungarian goose down has bigger, loftier clusters than standard goose down, for extra lightness and warmth. Here, it is combined with goose feather for a more resilient feel and soft to medium support. The cover is made from 100% cotton.

This range contains class one feathers - the highest quality available.

This range of naturally filled duvets and pillows is now housed in Nomite marked casing: a first for the UK market. The tight weave of the cover fabric ensures no down or feathers can escape, whilst it provides an effective barrier against dust mites. This means that these ranges are suitable for house-dust-mite-allergy and asthma sufferers. Supported by scientific research, our market leading casing gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy the multiple benefits of natural fillings.

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 3.8 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pillows These are worth every penny. I've invested in Hungarian goose down in the past and found them to be a bit thin and floppy. But these are extremely well stuffed. One review felt they were too firm, another more medium. I've found these to be not too much of either - so perfect. 02 September 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beware Unfortunately had to return to the store after one month. Unpleasant odour (think poultry!) even after daily airing. A shame because they are so comfortable. Exchanged in store for a more expensive product without any drama. 25 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by First John lewis Disappointment! Having previously purchased the Luxury Hungarian Goose Down Pillows from John Lewis, I decided to purchase these pillows as they were not for sleeping on but just for propping up on whilst reading or watching TV. They did have a strange odour when I unpacked them but I thought this would disappear once they were exposed to the air. How wrong I was! I always close the bedroom door when we are out in order to keep the cat out of the bedroom. One day we were out all day & as it had been a particularly warm day, I couldn't wait to open the bedroom windows on our return. The smell from the pillows was over-powering & filled the room & it really was most unpleasant. If anyone has ever had the misfortune to visit a battery farm, then you will know just what the smell was like. Needless to say, I contacted John Lewis who were, as usual, incredibly helpful & arranged for the pillows to be returned. I then ordered the Luxury Hungarian Goose Down Pillows & collected them from my local Waitrose branch at the same time as returning the offensive ones! A wonderful service. The new pillows have no unpleasant odour so once again we are happy bunnies! 05 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by More firm than Medium For a down pillow, this is very firm. But, that was what my husband was after. He's very pleased. 04 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stinky nice firm pillows but not treated correctly - could not shake off the smell - so returned. 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dream Time What a brilliant pillow, I have not touched a book since this pillow arrived. This is the pillow of my dreams, slightly firm but very supporting, would certainly buy another. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by John Lewis Hungarian goose down standard pillow , medium/ firm Yes. I am very pleased with this pillow. It fulfills the purpose. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Night's Sleep These pillows have been a great buy for us. They are fairly firm which I prefer. I would recommend these pillows. 21 July 2015
