Finding and maintaining an assortment of pillows – a pillow menu – for your guests is easy. Choose pillows based on size, fill and firmness (density) and keep a variety on hand to satisfy your guests’ needs and sleep styles. There are two basic types of pillows: Natural and Synthetic.
Down is the soft, fluffy layer of fine feathers under the outer feathers of geese, ducks and other birds. Down has a three-dimensional structure which features thousands of “pockets” that trap air, which provides better fill power, creating a loftier pillow. Down pillows are generally soft and are ideal for stomach sleepers. They are lightweight, loft well and retain their shape.
A Word About Down Quality
The age of ducks and geese that are raised for the food market will determine the quality of down. The younger the bird, the smaller the down cluster. Better quality comes from farm geese, which are allowed to grow to maturity. Generally, the best down comes from larger, more mature birds, especially those raised in colder climates producing a larger and more dense down “cluster.” The denser the down, the better it traps air, which in turn provides better insulation and fill power. The higher the fill power, the better the pillow quality.
Feather pillows are a more economical choice than down pillows with an extra degree of firmness and support. Three different kinds of feathers are used in feather pillows:
1. Small Flight Feathers This type of feather forms part of the flying surface of a bird’s wing. Small Flight Feathers are used in better quality pillows or comforters and are often mixed with a percentage of down.
2. Larger Flight Feathers
Larger Flight Feathers are found on the bird’s wings and tail. They are straight and flat with a hard quill shaft that runs from one end to the other. Larger Flight Feathers are used in good quality feather pillows and feather beds.
3. Body Feathers
Body Feathers protect the bird and are found over its entire body. This type of feather is perfect for use in feather pillows and feather beds because the bend or curve to the shaft gives them more "spring" than other types of feathers.
Down & Feather Blends
Down is often mixed with feathers to make a firmer, more resilient pillow. The hospitality industry’s #1 selling pillow provides the best of both worlds – an inner, feather compartment which provides firm support and an outer, down compartment for soft, flexible comfort.
Exceptionally resilient and long lasting. Fibers are combed and processed,
then inserted into the pillow.
Fibers are actually blown into the pillow and mimic down fill. "Adjustable" for
sleeper’s comfort and resists matting and clumping.
