the clusters of down make the pillow lightweight, great for creating an uninterrupted night's sleep

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The pillow I've been searching for I have, honestly, been searching for years for a pillow that it just right. I've tried them all. And here it is, the perfect pillow! You should buy it. 27 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality The pillow on display seemed soft and supportive, the one purchased on use did not seem like the one on display. It was hard. 21 April 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Comfortable pillow but the smell wakes me up Tried my new pillow last night and it is comfortable however when it warms up it gives off a bad smell. The pillow literally woke me up at night several times because the smell is so unbelievably bad. The pillow is for supposed to be for "side sleepers" but I can say that it is impossible to have a nice sleep when sleeping on your side, because of smell. 14 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sky high prices but you get to sleep on a fluffy cloud. Sky high prices but you get to sleep on a fluffy cloud. Reassuringly expensive. 29 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great nights sleep I love this pillow, it supports the head well, lovely to suggle into and because it's made with natural filling it stops my head getting too hot. 22 March 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Pillow Not good value for money. Too bulky for normal pillowcase. 09 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Took a long time to find the right one ... and I'm not talking husbands! Finally found a supportive but comfortable pillow! I have tried so many pillows over the years - different fillings, different shapes and sizes, different manufacturers, and they would be okay at first but would become increasingly uncomfortable. Finally went for this one and it is great - supportive but not hard. I alternate between back and side sleeping and this pillow works supporting my neck in both positions. So good, I bought a further three for others in the household. Don't know if it is of any relevance but I chose the regular stock and didn't go for the "Clearance" version of these pillows. 03 February 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by pillow Texture is as described, however there is a slight odour of feathers from the pillow. 02 February 2016
