I liked these pillows so much I'm back for more. I had previously ordered a set of these a few years ago and have been very pleased with them. I ordered a king size set and standard size set, and all have been great. The quality is excellent and they are very durable; I have run them through my washer and dryer and they have held up very well. My son moved out recently, taking his pillows with him, so I needed more and didn't hesitate to head back here to get them. And, I was pleasantly surprised that the price is lower than the last time I ordered them. These pillows are a great buy!
I couldn't find feather pillows in the stores close by to me. I grew up on feather pillows, avoided them for some years because of all the "allergy" hype, but I am back to feather pillows and they are the best ! better than down that go too flat. these were just the right plumpness, they shape around my head & block out noise, I can scrunch them up and so far no pokes from feather spines.
I agree with a previous reviewer who stated that these pillows are really loud, and that the feathers are big and make a scratchy noise. I am returning these pillows also and am getting down ones or down alternative. For something called lofty, soft etc. I would have expected something else. But I noticed feathers coming through the cover already, and I hated the crunchy noise it was making. Nothing compared to the delicious down comforter I bought. Just because it said "natural feather", it doesn't imply softness. In fact, it is misleading. If you like fluffy pillows or at least quiet sleep and nothing poking in your head, don't get these pillows.
Beware - you get what you pay for. The feathers are really big and uncomfortable. When you touch the pillow they make a scratching noise like newspaper. The feathers are poking through already and all I did was pull them out of the box. I am sending them back and will reorder the down goose pillows for twice the money.
I was surprised that these pillows were so heavy. They make wonderful fillers for my decorative shams. However, they are not as soft as I would like them for sleeping. I must remember they are "feathers" and not "down".... I am glad I bought them but I am using them differently than I planned when I made the purchase.
I can't believe how many good reviews these pillows got. I slept on them one night and promptly decided to send them back the next day. They totally flattened, got hard, and didn't feel like you were sleeping on anything more than a folded up towel. Definitely not worth it.
These pillows are very good value, are well made and have a soft lining. However after the excitement of their super quick arrival I was disappointed with the texture of them when trying to sleep, my husband and I both found them to be much to soft with no substance to them, I even tried putting both pillows into one pillow case but then ther was just too much pillow! If you like very soft pillows these will be good for you, but beware they sink to nothing when you lie on them...
Purchased this set of pillows in conjuction with a higher priced set. This set was very soft and supple where the higher priced set was cheap and prickly! The quality of the ticking was excellent! Very soft filling with no prickly feathers sticking you! The first night sleeping with these pillows was one of the best night sleep I've had in a long time! This was an excellent price for these luxurios pillows!
I ordered these pillows because I wanted new feather pillows and these looked like a good deal. They weren't. You could see the feathers through the cover, the quills were large and tended to poke, and the pillow felt crunchy when laid on. These are not good pillows as far as comfort goes, would not recommend to anybody
These pillows have feathers with stems that stick through the pillows and cases and pinch you while you're trying to sleep! Then, you wake up with lots of feathers stuck into your sleeping garments! They're fluffy and you can shape them to how you like them, but for the reason of the feather problem alone, I would never recomend these pillows!
I bought these for my boyfriend and I ..since we just moved.. I need a lot of support .. these are great for my boyfriend b/c he liked to fold his pillow.. their not "fluffy.. you can fold them into a tiny tiny square.. but they are comfortable once you do that... if you need a lot of support on your neck.. do not get these.. if you like a soft mushy pillow then get these.. they do not have a smell and the feathers do not poke out.. not a bad product..
After reading some of the reviews it makes you wonder if everyone is receiving the same product. I purchased these pillows for our camper. I let them air out a while as suggested, then put the cases on and put them in our camper. These pillows stunk up our bedroom so bad in one day, I had to take them out of the camper. I tried washing them which only made matters worse. To make a long story short, they smelled so bad even after washing and air drying, I had to throw them out. Never able to check out comfort due to fact I couldn't get past the smell. Thank goodness they didn't cost more. The statement you get what you pay for applies here. Would not recommend to anyone who has good sense of smell. I'll stick to foam thanks
I couldn't go near these pillows to find out how comfortable they are because they smell. The appearance is terrible; you can see dark spots inside revealing something like feces. I wouldn't recommend them to my worst ennemy. It was recommended that I air them for a few hours, but one whole day of hot sun didn't remove the smell.
