Down and feather-filled products are packed tightly during shipping. Upon receipt, remove them from their packaging, fluff gently, and allow several hours to recover their full loft. In addition, being sealed in plastic packaging sometimes causes the scent of these natural products to concentrate to a disagreeable level. A few hours of airing usually removes the odor.
We recommend that this pillow is fluffed at least once a week to maintain down distribution.

Very nice pillows. Highly recommend.Read More
Very comfortable pillow. Some down pillows are "crunchy" from the quills of the feathers. This one does not feel that way. The fabric is beautiful. I will purchase more of these for the guest beds is my house.Read More
I was excited to received my 2 king size pillows. They are beautiful pillows and I had high hopes for a great nights sleep. After about an hour, the pillow feels hard under your head. I woke up several times punching the pillow trying to get it to be soft and fluffy. Sadly, I can't return them, they are open and used. A big waste of money. ($***.**)Read More
Quite possible the best pillow I have ever purchased. And I have bought a lot, including a Tempurpedic. I have always had neck pain when sleeping. I am mainly a side sleeper. And since using it, I have not woken up with any neck pain. I can't express how great that is.Read More
I fell right asleep with this pillow. retains its puffiness. no smell snf so comfortable.Read More
unlike some down & feather pillows, this one is a bit firmer....so take that into consideration....a lovely pillow.....extremely well made.Read More
This is a very nicely made pillow. I wanted so badly to love it. It really is beautiful. I took all the reviews at face value and jumped into the abyss, purchasing 2 King Candace Olson feather pillows, 2 Queen and 5 Standard. Oh what a mistake! Pillows are so subjective. I figured they must be wonderful with such overwhelmingly glowing reviews. I am sure they are very wonderful for very many people. Just not for me and my family. Universally we all thought they were waaay tooo hard. They fluff up beautifully indeed but compress to a brick. Each and every one of us had a crook neck. Unfortunately we could not return some of them because we had used them. Now we are stuck with pillows that don't satisfy the requisite fluff factor we need in our home. I'd be careful. These really are firm. The Queen the most so out of all of them. Whether this is a fluke or not, I just don't know. The Standard weren't so bad, but the Queen left something truly to be desired. Ouch! So in summation, for some this might be ideal, but for us, we cannot get use to them in any way shape or form. I'm definitely in need of a good massage to sooth out the kinks and stiffness.Read More
I was first to purchase for myself after first night the pillows were purchased for my daughter and my mother absolutely best ever pillows for a good night sleep.Read More
I am in bed all the time and needed support yet softness. These 2 pillows fit the bill. The zippered protectors are of fine quality. The pillows are a bit smaller than expected but do not detract from the effectiveness. I highly recommend the pillow for daily or decorative use.Read More
I purchased the Candice Olson Pillow as well as another brand that was about 4 times as expensive so I could compare them as both had similar descriptions. I was looking for a good quality down pillow that offered firm support for side sleepers. Although the Candice Olson pillow was the least expensive of the two, it had far better quality and support. These pillows fluff up nice and are super comfortable to sleep on in any position. I actually ended up buying a second Candice Olson Pillow and returned the more expensive one since the more expensive pillow just flattened out completely and offered no support even though they claimed it was full and firm.Read More

what's the fill power?
Thank you for your question and I apologize for the delayed response. There is no fill power rating for this product because it contains 70-percent goose feather and 30-percent down. To my understanding anything below 75-percent down has no fill power rating.
Best Fills for Down Comforters
Warm and incredibly soft, down comforters are the height of luxurious bedding. Like all other bedding, down comforters can range from inexpensive to costly. The proof is in the filling. Inexpensive down comforters are filled with a combination of down and polyester or down and feathers. The best down comforters, which are usually also the most expensive, are full of pure, thick down. Take a look below to learn the best fills for down comforters. Hungarian goose down: Hungarian goose down is considered the most luxurious type of down. These extreme cold-weather birds have very thick, almost odorless tufts of down at the base of their feathers. This heavy, long-lasting down is most often used in comforters with a fill rating of 800, which means they can keep a person warm even in cold conditions. Eiderdown: Eiderdown is harvested by hand from the abandoned nests of Eider ducks, which pluck the down from their own backs and use it to cover their eggs. Eider ducks live in cold climates, so their down is thick and heavy. It is used in high-quality comforters with a fill rating of between 700 and 800. Eider duck down is the only type of duck down used in high-quality comforters. All other duck down is usually considered too smelly (and some duck down has tiny barbs) and is used in much less expensive comforters. Grey and white goose down: Grey goose down is used in dark comforters due it its grey color, but it is the same as white goose down in all other ways. Grey and white goose down, which is usually harvested from European or Chinese geese, is the most popular type of down used in middle-price-range pure down comforters. These comforters usually have a fill rating of 600 and above. Hypodown: Hypodown is a mixture of white goose down and milkweed. This all-natural filling is hypoallergenic and much more durable than pure down comforters. While pure down is still considered to be the preferable fill for comforters by most people, hypodown is gaining popularity with consumers who want a longer lasting product without synthetic fills.

How to Buy a Down Comforter

Most down comforters are made with goose down, but some may include down feathers from other species of fowl. Look below to learn how to buy a down comforter.
