We live in an era in which synthetic materials are most popular in the sleep industry because of their many positive characteristics.

Who is Snuggledown Goose Feather & Down pillow for?

According to the brand Snuggledown, the Goose Feather & Down pillow is designed for back and side sleepers. It gives gentle support which is ideal for those two sleeping positions. The side sleepers will enjoy it mostly, but back sleepers, as well as those sleeping on their stomachs will find it comfy as well. 

Snuggledown Goose Feather & Down White is also for all those who want a product filled with natural materials but they don’t want to aggravate their allergies [1]. The high-quality materials ensure the moisture-free, anti-bacterial and fluffy sleep experience for a long time – as long as you keep them clean. 

Also, this medium support pillow is ‘Made in Britain’ more precisely in the heart of Lancashire, so if you want to support local companies, it is great choice. 

What do we use this product for?

We use it for its balance between softness and support. You will certainly sink in it to some extent, but not too much, so you will feel support too. The medium support provided by this product is ideal for the prevention and treatment of neck pain, and this will be especially felt by those customers who prefer side sleeping. In addition, you can combine it with goose feathers and 15 TOG duvets to ensure yourself comfortable night's sleep, even during the coldest winter nights.

Features you should know about Snuggledown Goose Feather and Down pillow

Since this product is filled with a mixture of two materials, this is the primary feature you should know more about. Then we will talk about the cover that is important because it is in contact with the skin of our face, as well as hypoallergenic properties and maintenance.

85% goose feather & 15% goose down natural filling

Snuggledown company also offers pillows where down makes up the most of the filling, and in this model they have opted for a combination of 85% goose feather , 15% goose down. There are several reasons why many customers will choose this pillow.

One of the main reasons is definitely the price, because this product is cheaper than the ones where down is primary filling material. But that's not all. Down pillows are too soft for many, while feathers give firmness to this product and better support. Thanks to mix of duck feather and down, although it is primarily designed for side and back sleepers, it is firm enough to fit some stomach sleepers as well.

230 thread count cotton

This product is surrounded by a 230-thread count cotton fabric. To make this product completely made of natural materials, cotton is a logical choice for cover, as cotton is soft, comfortable, durable and hypoallergenic. Cotton 230 is one of the best types of cotton you can find.

The 230 thread count cotton cover is so soft that you will notice it right away, and it is also very breathable. Some customers think that 230 thread count is not enough, but between 200 and 300 thread count is the most common for pillow covers, so 230 thread count is more than enough. You should know that the cover is not removable.

100% non-allergenic

People who have allergies, which is according to data almost 30% of the population in the United Kingdom, are accustomed to carefully choosing the products they use, whether they buy sleep products, cosmetics or something else. They are generally advised to use synthetic materials because they are hypoallergenic, but it is also safe.

However, that doesn’t have to be the case. Several studies have indeed concluded that properly washed feathers do not contain dust mite allergens. So, unless you’re allergic to the actual feathers, which is very rarely the case, this hypoallergenic, properly manufactured pillow should keep you allergy- free as long as you keep it clean.

Machine washable

We already mentioned that the cover is not removable, but that will not be a problem for you to maintain this pillow. Although it is generally easier to just wash the cover because it dries faster and takes up less space in the washing machine, in this case you will have to wash the whole product every time.

It is machine washable at 40 degrees C and you can also tumble dry it. Be sure to use natural detergents and tumble dry it on low heat. If you want to let it dry naturally, always make sure it is completely dry because you don’t want moisture in it.

Additional versions of this product

The product is also available in a few different versions, with different fill material options. It comes with Duck Feather & Down, Hungarian Goose down flling, as well as Premium Duck Down and Softened Feather. Each version comes at the different price, as well as at higher quality of materials nad manufacturing. Don't get us wrong – basic version of Goose Feather & Down is a high-quality product that will help you to achieve better night's sleep and will serve you for many years.

What we realised from many customer reviews, people have praised Hungarian Goose Down version a lot as this pillow is filled with small goose feathers, which increases the overall comfort. Besides 1 pack pillow version, there is also a 2 pack version if you want to ensure a good night's sleep for your partner as well.

Review of Snuggledown Goose Feather and Down pillow

Snuggledown Goose Feather & Down White pillow is an all-natural product filled with a blend of 85% goose feather and 15% goose down and surrounded by a 230 thread count cotton cover. Although it may seem at first glance that due to feather and down filling it is not suitable for allergy sufferers, this product is completely hypoallergenic.

It is a medium firm, so it achieves an ideal balance of comfort and support, and it is favourite choice of side and back sleepers, and it is not unsuitable for stomach sleepers either. The cotton cover is not removable, and the pillow is machine washable at 40 degrees C.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Size: 74 x 48 x 10 cm
  • Weight: 500 gr
  • Materials: Cover-Cotton; Filling-Goose Feather and Down.

What are the best alternatives to Snuggledown Goose Feather & Down White pillow?

If you want an alternative to this pillow, we recommend White Company’s Goose Feather & Down as it belongs to the same price range. Instead of a duck feather, this one comes with goose feather and down.

White Company’s Goose Feather & Down

One of the most luxurious natural-filling pillows on the market comes from the White Company, which has a range of naturally-filled products. The perfect balance of comfort and support will definitely convince you to go for this product.

The ratio of feather and down is the same as with this product – so it is filled with a blend of 85% fine feather and 15% super-soft down. It is very breathable so it is suitable for the whole year, and side and back sleepers will prefer it. It is medium firm, but tends to be soft, so it is not recommended for people who don't like softer types of pillows.

Even though it has a high-quality 329-thread-count cotton casing, it is still recommended to take the product to the professional cleaning for the best results.

The Dormeo Memory Classic mattress will ideally suit all side and back sleepers, as well as most stomach sleepers, who chose Snuggledown Goose Feather & Down White pillow.

Dormeo Memory Classic mattress is 14 cm thick and consists of two layers, 2 cm thick memory foam and 12 cm thick Ecocell foam layer. Anti-bacterial cover is top quality, but it is not removable which complicates maintenance.

Still, this mattress deserves 5 star rating, thanks to its high-quality features and craftsmanship. It also comes from the registered office and brand that is well-known around the world.

How did we test the product?

Our reviewer squeezing the Snuggledown Goose Feather and Down pillow while sitting on a bed

Delivery is free so all you need to do is order your product and wait a few days for it to arrive. You will receive it nicely packaged and on the package you will be able to read the material and other important information.

The product is very high quality and you will notice that it is made by a company that has a long tradition in the British textile industry. However, what you will first notice when you unpack it is a strong odour. You will have to air it for a while or wash it right away. That's because customers have different experiences of how long it takes before the odour disappears.

As soon as the odour was gone, we approached the overnight test. We tested it for all three sleeping positions and certainly the side sleeper was most satisfied in the morning. This is definitely one of the most comfortable pillows for a side sleeper. It is also suitable for back sleeping, and two people from our team who are stomach sleepers tested it. One had a relatively positive comment, while the other find it unsuitable.

Eventually we washed it in the washing machine and let it dry, which took a while. The outer part dries quickly, but here you can make a mistake. You can sleep on it, without the middle of the pillow actually being completely dry, although it is very breathable. Let's not forget to say that it is suitable for hot sleepers due to breathability.

Conclusion

Overall, we'd say that the Snuggledown Goose Feather and Down Pillow is a decent choice for quite a few people! After all, it's high-quality, relatively cheap, and as soft as a cloud. But do let us know in the comments whether you're going to try this pillow out.

This is added to more than 2 years experience as a product reviewer for Closer, Heat and Grazia magazines, so I've got a rigorous process. I love sharing my sleep testimonials with our readers and hearing their experiences too.
