Down and feather fillings are the most sought-after natural fiber types of filling for bedding. Beddings filled with down and feathers are considered to be highly desirable due to their ability to provide exceptional comfort, support, and temperature control. While they both provide you with a great night’s sleep, they are very different in their structure and composition. When choosing the right bedding for your needs, there are many factors to consider. We will walk you through the differences between down and feather, so that you can make an informed decision when making your next bedding purchase.
The Sublime Comfort of Down Bedding
You can enhance the luxurious feel, softness, and beauty of any bedding ensemble by adding down-filled bedding. Down fill provides you with exceptional comfort and support, and it maintains its loft over the long run. Natural down consists of the fluffy coating or layers found beneath the feathers of waterfowl, which provide exceptional insulation and warmth.
Down comforters are lofty and lightweight due to the presence of down clusters in the down fill. Down fill consists of a three-dimensional fluffy cluster with fine filaments extending in all directions. It has a dandelion-like structure. The clusters help down comforters trap air and provide remarkable insulation. Since down is so versatile and breathable, it can also be used in various climates and seasons (even in the summer).
Down has been the fill of choice for centuries. A natural insulator, breathable, and a natural material, down is suitable to be used in a wide array of products like luxury down pillows, blankets, and jackets. At Puredown, we have an assortment of comforters, blankets, and pillows to cater to your exact needs. From lightweight to ultra-plush and everything in between, our high-quality products offer the comfort you need for the sleep of your dreams. We’ve selected a few of our favorite down picks below:

The Exquisite Comfort and Support of Feather Bedding
Feathers are one of the most common materials used in contemporary bedding products. Feathers are the outer coating of ducks and many other birds, providing them with a protective barrier, as well as insulation against cold weather.
The structure of feathers is two-dimensional, as opposed to three-dimensional down clusters. Bedding made from feathers offers exceptional quality with plenty of support, durability, and comfort. Although feathers are generally stiffer than down, they are still pliable enough to provide you with warmth and support.
Feathers have long been associated with luxury and quality, so it’s no surprise that feathers tend to make up the majority of down bedding. They are supportive and firm enough to offer adequate support for the average sleeper but soft enough that they contour to your body’s natural curves when you sleep on them. In a world where quality and comfort matter most, Puredown offers a wide variety of fluffy feather products to suit your needs. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite picks below.
