Jasper Conran Supremely Soft Duck down pillow
feathers flown the coop
This is the most comfortable pillow I have EVER owned. BUT the feathers shed and shed and shed out of the fabric. A designer like J Conran should have the know how to select a tightly woven fabric.
I have these pillows in a pillow cover and a pillow case and still they shed. Feathers on everything, especially clothing and around the room.
Such a pity as the contents are first class+++.
got these wonderful pillows for myself. i love them.

As my quality rating implies. Excellent quality, thus lovely sleeps. I certainly would recommend them to my friends
Great comfortable pillows with good support.
Smelled & feathers everywhere
The pillows smelled really bad when I first got them, so I aired them for about a week and the smell disappeared. The pillows are very comfortable, but they lose a lot of feathers! I have three pillow cases on each pillow to try and stop the feathers from coming out. The cases are full of fluff, even after shaking them outside, and I'm hoping it won't clog the washing machine. I don't know how long these pillows will remain filled enough to be comfortable!
As long as you ignore the occasional pricking from a feather and the constant down leakage filling your bedroom and covering every surface in a haze of white. Probably not a huge problem if you have the time to vacuum every day. As it is we're having to buy some pillow protectors to protect our bedroom.
Although quite expensive, I have got through many cheaper pillows which never keep their shape. This is soft, yet supportive. No discernable smell through the pillowcase as mentioned by other reviewers. It plumps back up after use and is not lumpy. No complaints so far, athough I haven't given it 5 stars as it's not as firm as I had hoped, but early days and I shall experiment with it! Buy it in the sale though!
Not as soft as I hoped for and smells of oily feathers. I have experienced this before and that smell will pass eventually. Otherwise, it seems to be fine so far.
