I have used down pillows all my life. I have migraine headaches and sleep on nothing else. I had purchased other down pillows, only to find the feathers poked through and were very uncomfortable. I bought 2 of these pillows in king size and wish I had boutght 2 more. I had to reorder these pillows in the queen size. They are soft without being too soft. Just the right amount of cushion for the head. Excellent quality. They are delivered flat . but fluff up nicely in an hour or two. You can not go wrong ordering these pillows.
