Washable and soft but buy the Goose Down pillow from Soak and Sleep instead - more down and less smell.
CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE: Take a look at the Snow Goose Down Pillow from Soak and Sleep – it’s a great alternative with 80% down filling and a top quality boxed piped edge to keep it full.
This pillow is one of the more expensive pillows at Debenhams and you can tell why. It is a lovely, soft and fluffy duck down pillow. Unlike many we have come across it’s filling is English duck down. It feels well made, with a down proof cotton cover. However, the name is slightly misleading as this pillow is not 100% down but actually a 70 % down, 30% feather mix. If you prefer a down pillow, I wouldn’t be too put off by this as I couldn’t feel the feathers in it, nor did it have the crunch or grey effect that you can get with feather pillows. One other thing to note is that at first I felt that this pillow was well stuffed, however it did start to feel a bit thin over time. I would certainly recommend a second pillow with this one.
This pillow is ideal for a front sleeper. Just remember to air it before use, as it did come with a slight odour (I have smelt far worse!). There is a clear recommendation on the packaging to remind you and maybe use a little spritz of pillow mist too?
Ultimately, we’ve only given this 3 stars as there are better options out there. The Soak and Sleep Hungarian Down pillow is a much better buy. One of our favourite pillows of all time – at just £10 more it is 90% goose down, no smells and in our opinion fabulous value for money.
The pillow is machine washable and even suitable for a tumble drying.
