Northern Nights Set of 2 Standard 550FP All Down Pillows
Not Good for Some Sleepers
These pillows are only good for some down pillow aficionados. Like one of the other reviewers, these pillows will not yield to my head shape and they are not for me. They are perfect for someone who wants to stuff the lumbar region of their back while sitting up in a recliner or a chair. The cover seems to be lined inside to prevent the down from poking through and this gives the pillow a somewhat crunchy response and I think, contributes to the pillow's lack of shapeability for your head and neck, but helps with it's conformity to the lumbar region. The pillow is hypercleaned but has an odor which quickly dissipates within a day. The crunchiness is NOT from feathers. Even though the pillow tag notes that it is at least 75% down, it is actually all down. Absolutely no feather tips can be felt, nor do feathers contribute to their crunchiness, rather it is the interior lining causing the crunchiness.
Not like my old Northern Night Down Pillows
These are only 75% down and I find them to be "crunchy" and hard. I was hoping to replace my ALL DOWN pillows from the past but these are not it. I think that they should reveal that these are NOT ALL DOWN. I normally am very happy with my northern night purchases but not these.....packed up to go back.
I love this pillow! I can only sleep with feather or down pillows due to a disc problem in my neck. Had surgery to replace a disc and one is bulging so I have to have a comfortable pillow that will conform to my neck for support. This pillow is just what the doctor ordered!
