I've had these pillows a year now, and very disappointed to give them a negative review, as they are Made in USA and that was the reason for buying this brand. I covered the pillows with zippered dust mite/allergen protectors, which is probably why I didn't notice until a year later that the feathers had come out from the pillow. When trying to unzip the pillow protectors to wash them, the zipper would not unzip more than 3 inches, from all the feathers and dust inside that had come out of the pillows jamming the zipper. I'm going to wash the pillows with the covers on, unzipped slightly, and dry them with a tennis ball in the dryer until they're dry, as the outside protectors need to be washed. Very disappointed in these pillows....they should definitely use a denser fabric for the outside of the pillows, or bigger feathers...I understand air needs to go through the pillows so they "fluff", but I have a set of feather pillows from 17 years ago that still work great, as I've washed them regularly--feathers would inevitably make their way out, but not too many like with these pillows. So sad that a Made in USA product whose price would make you think you were getting quality would have the substandard quality we come to equate with "made in China" Most 5 star reviews were probably written right away when people got them. If I'd reviewed them right away, I too would have given them a 5 star review, but a year later, discovering what I did, I am extremely disappointed. If there'd been more negative reviews when I was purchasing these, I would have passed. Another thing: What the heck? In addition to feathers coming out, lots of the escaped filling looks like small hairs (looks like eyelashes)???? Gross! Whatever. I'll use them, only with my dust mite/allergen pillow covers on them, and when these covers get old, cut them off and buy more I guess. Nothing will pass through those covers, just don't expect to be able to zip them off...
My mom had given me a super comfortable twin size feather pillow but we have a king bed. So I bought the king size pillows for our master bedroom. They are very comfortable, but the thread count on the casing must be very low (100 tc maybe), because feathers constantly poke through and even come out. I've resorted to putting 2 pillow cases on these pillows. Unless you want to wake up to a bed with feathers, I wouldn't recommend this item.
I was pleasantly surprised with my order as I didn't realize that I had purchased two SETS instead of two pillows. All four of these pillows are wonderfully comfortable and hold their shape. The only 'down' side is the fact that they smell of 'down' upon opening the plastic packaging they arrived in. However, with a few hours of airing out, they are just fine!
I can honestly say I hated these pillows and that they are the worst feather pillows I have ever owned. Feathers poke right through the material and came out of the pillows. There was constantly dust and feathers in my pillowcases and all over my bed. They weren't even comfortable to sleep on. I wouldn't recommend these at all.
The feather pillows are just perfect and my husband really loves them also.

These pillows are the WORST! Not enough feathers to make the pillow plump. The blue-white stripped case material is so thin, the feathers poke right through the material. You can feel the feathers poking your face while you are sleeping. The worst part, is that every time I make the bed, feathers and feather dust come out of the pillows and collect on the floor, the nightstand, the comforter, etc. Don't buy these pillows, they are VERY poor quality and I can't wait to replace them.
