  • FAQs
    • What’s the difference between down and down alternative?

      Down is the layer of fluffy, fine feathers that lies under the tough exterior feathers of ducks and geese. Down is warm, but lightweight, and is a popular insulation material for luxury comforters, pillows, and coats. Down alternative is a polyester filling that mimics the heat-trapping qualities of down, but is even more lightweight than traditional down. Down alternative material is vegan-friendly and hypoallergenic, making it an ideal option for those with asthma and/or who are sensitive to animal fur and dander.

    • What does hypoallergenic mean?

      Hypoallergenic means “relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.” Hypoallergenic products are in high demand among those who have allergies; however, products labeled hypoallergenic may still cause an allergic reaction in highly sensitive groups.

    • How do I clean the Down Alternative Pillow?

      The Down Alternative Pillows are machine-washable. Wash in cool water with mild detergent and tumble dry on low.
