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 70% duck down and 30% 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.

Prolong the life of your new pillow with a pillow protector. Shop here.

Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb at last a pillow that gives me a good night others have complained about smell when using real feathers but i have not but i do use a quilted pillow protector again this adds more comfort but pillow case are now too tight need to get larger ones 29 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too smelly As others have found, the smell of the farmyard was really not what I wanted from a pillow. It did not go away after a week's airing. I have had various feather and down (including duck down) pillows over the last 30 years and never had this problem before. John Lewis were of course excellent in their no quibble returns service, but I don't know why they persist in selling this product. 09 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pillow Have wasted so much money on pillows, and didn't want a feather. However, I am not aware this has any feathers in it. I have not had such a good sleep for ages. It is very supportive to my neck, and it moulds to how you want it easily. Great pillow! 21 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pillow Talk Good quality pillow, but a bit too much filling, I would prefer if it was a bit thinner. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very supportive pillow very comfortable gives a good night sleep. A very good pillow with no feather quills so lovely and soft but supportive. A great purchase. 03 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great quality but smell very strong I bought these a week ago in a store, not online. Although they're excellent quality and good value for the price, the strong, animal smell took me back - it's like sleeping with my head in the dog's bed! I've been hoping it would wear off but it's as strong as ever so I'm reluctantly thinking of returning them. I've had duck feather pillows before that didn't smell like this so perhaps it's the production process? 21 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable and smelly Overall this pillow has improved my sleep quality. Even after airing the pillow for 10 days and having slept on it for 2 weeks now, the duck smell remains. I never returned the pillow as the the smell didn't interfere with my sleep. 05 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
