Superb value for a good all-round pillow - luxury at a very decent price
I don’t know what it is about Hungarian geese, but their down is certainly highly prized as a pillow filling.
Maybe Hungary has a lot of geese, maybe it is just really cold and they need a lot of down to keep warm, who knows? Regardless, this is a fabulous down pillow which overcomes some of my own personal issues with down pillows by having a central core of feathers. This crucially gives the pillow more substance, a bit more weight, and overall makes it a more satisfying pillow on which to rest your head at night. I couldn’t feel the feather core at all, and overall, one of the most satisfying down pillows for a great night’s sleep. Not quite enough support if you only sleep on your side but you could always put a slim pillow underneath and use this as a lovely soft top pillow if you like a bit more height.
Soak and Sleep show us again that they know their pillows and understand the ethical concerns some may have about down – the down they use is fully traceable and ethically produced. Video below gives you more details about how the pillow is made. Their video gives you more information about how the pillow is made.
Ultimately, at £60 for a 90% down pillow with thoughtful supportive construction for back sleepers and side sleepers, this is superb value and in my opinion worth the expense. A new favourite.
