Goose feather & Down Quilts have been used down the ages. Not only used as a filling for quilts but also pillows and duvets. The qualities durability, lightness and softness when considered together offer a product that delivers fantastic value for money. I
f you look after your Goose feather and Down it will last decades.
Another virtue of this natural filling is that it will let excess humidity created by sleeping bodies disperse and escape. Therefore helping you feel you’ve had restorative rest when you wake up.
What is Down? This is the very light, soft under plumage that is found under the outside feathers of Geese and Ducks..Imagine a tiny duckling; these little birds have no feathers only down. With that image in mind it’s easy to see why nature creates this wonderful resilient insulating material. Down allows air to be trapped and act as a thermal barrier to protect vulnerable young creatures from low temperatures. It’s not difficult to see why Down is expensive.;Down is a rare and valuable commodity being light, soft and when used in a duvet incredibly warm. Feathers play their part and are efficient in delivering similar properties to down but have a quill..The stiff quills will offer support, trap air and be resilient.
We all perspire when sleeping and that moisture can make bedding feel damp and not smell very nice either. Therefore it’s important to make sure all your bedding is dried thoroughly. The life of your pillows can be extended by caring for them. By doing this it can help them not succumbing to compression as would be the case otherwise.
Another area that can lead to discolouration and moisture on your bedding is Bath Oils and Lotions. This has a long term effect and slowly a yellowing of the outer cases of your bedding. We all have natural oils in our skin and these will also contribute to a yellowing of casings but much more slowly.
If you choose a Goose Feather & Down Quilt, Duvet or Pillow you can be assured of a quality product. This is a filling that gives warmth and is light. Best of all it will last a long time and therefore be worth a little extra cost up front.
