This featherbed sheds and bunches up to leave a hump in the middle of the bed.Read More
I purchased one for my parents and then purchased one for my master bedroom. . .love itRead More
I had ordered a few of the featherbeds from Overstock in the past. This one was not as nice. Did not have sides to fit on the mattress... It just rested on top. I used a mattress cover on top of the featherbed to hold in place and it's in my guest room so it doesn't get used on a daily basis. I would spend a little more if you're planning on using it everyday so it doesn't move. It did add some fluff to the bed though and that's just what I was looking for.Read More

Bought a new matteress, and wasn't as comfortable as I thought in the store. Bought this and my bed feels perfect. Very good value for the product. Well made, fluffs up well,. Heavier than I thought, but that adds to the qualityRead More
This featherbed was priced well and it was thick and plush, but it does lose a lot of feathers. I put something on top of it and zipped it under my mattress cover so I don't get stuck by feathers, but when i watch the mattress cover there are feathers every where. This is the first featherbed I have used, so maybe they all lose feathers, but otherwise it's okay.Read More

Questions & Answers
Hello steddy28, this is filled with waterfowl feathers, it is not down alternative. Thanks for shopping with us! A.S.
Yes and no. Technically "down" are the feathers taken from the underbelly of a bird , usually a goose. This feather bed says it is made of the "feathers from waterfowl", so it is not DOWN but it is feathers.
This is actual feather not alternative. Very happy with this purchase.
No, it feels like chicken feathers. They poke through the cloth and I took it off the bed. Will use it on guest bed so they don't visit too long.
How thick is this featherbed?
Thank you for your inquiry, adjrosebud. This comforter is two inches thick. We hope this helps. Thank you for shopping with us.
About two inches. You can definitely feel the difference when laying on it. When you change your sheets you'll need to give it a few shakes to evenly redistribute the feathers.
What is the brand name/ Where is it made?
Unfortunately, we are unable to disclose manufacturer information on some of our products. However, be assured that we fully stand behind the products we sell. This is made in China.
What is the fill power on this?
The fill power depends on the size of the comforter. The fill power of each size is listed along with the dimensions.

How to Pick the Right Fill for Down Comforters

The higher the fill number, the larger the down clusters and warmth factor. There are several factors to be considered when choosing a down comforter, so keep reading for some useful tips on how to pick the right fill for down comforters.
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.

Popular Types of Quilts
Out of all the bedding made, quilts may be the most diverse. Quilts are produced in all kinds of colors, patterns, sizes, styles and types. If you're looking for a quilt but don't know where to start, take a look at the popular types of quilts below to learn more about this beautiful kind of bedding. Amish quilts: These beautiful quilts reflect the Amish way of living and feature solid colors, deep hues, geometric patterns and very little embellishment. Amish quilts contain the highest quality of construction and stitching, and, sometimes, the wonderful stitch patterns (scrolls, feathers) contrast with the simple backgrounds of their quilts. Applique quilts: These quilts use a French needlework technique where fabric pieces are sewn onto another piece of material to create a design. Applique is used extensively in the quilting process and is not to be confused with patchwork. Patchwork pieces are joined together; applique is sewn on top of the whole piece. Baltimore album quilts: Baltimore album quilts came from Maryland in the early 1800s. Each block in the design of these quilts is appliqued differently, often in ornate floral patterns. Bangladeshi quilts: These quilts are made with layers of Saree cloth. Saree cloth is silk cloth used by women of India to wrap and fold around the body as a garment. The cloth is usually 40 to 60 inches wide by 6 yards long. These quilts are used as bedding or as decorative pieces. Bargello quilts: Bargello quilts are created with offset squares in an up-and-down geometric "V" pattern. The small squares of different fabrics and the colorful designs make these quilts true works of art. Hawaiian quilts: Hawaiian quilts are not pieced, and they usually showcase a large, symmetrical applique in the center of the quilt. Most often the background is white or another solid color. Patchwork quilts: Patchwork quilts are constructed of many small pieces of fabric which are put together in an improvised or irregular pattern. This is a well-known quilt style, and examples of historical patchwork quilts are found in many museums. Ralli quilts: Ralli quilts, sometimes known as rilli quilts, are traditional quilts made in India or Pakistan. There is an abundance of embroidery as well as applique on the patchwork patterns. Star quilts: Star quilts are created with a large star shape, or several star shapes, dominating the pattern. Wedding ring quilts: Wedding ring quilts are crafted in a design of interlocking rings. This pattern goes far back in history: in the fourth century it was used to decorate drinking cups in Rome. Wedding ring quilts are highly popular and make wonderful wedding gifts. If you're looking for a gift to please an engaged couple, you can't go wrong with a wedding quilt. Bedding always makes a significant gift for the bride and groom, and a quilt with coordinating Egyptian cotton sheets can be even better. View All Quilts Back to Guides Directory View All Quilts
