Maggies Direct Feather/Down Pillow Review and Giveaway


Have you ever imagined what it would be like to sleep on a cloud? With the right bedding you can achieve that feeling. Maggies Direct can help you with that! They have down comforters, pillows, featherbeds, blankets and more (they even have a pet section!).

I received the 95/5 Feather/Down Cuddledown pillow:


Maggie's Direct description: 

"Bestow your parents with this traditional feather pillow that is softer, yet has the same structured support you expect from an old fashioned pillow. Made with 95% Small Goose Feathers and 5% Goose Down and 100% cotton fabric, this feather pillow is double stitched, downproofed, Oeko-Tex® certified to be free of all harmful chemicals, and made in USA using fine imported materials. This complements well with quilted sateen pillow protectors, also available at Maggie's.

Care Instructions: Fluff on a daily basis. Air outside to keep smelling fresh. Spot clean small stains with a mild detergent and thoroughly dry area with a hand held hairdryer. Machine wash warm with a mild detergent. Thoroughly dry on low to prevent mildew. To keep down from clumping during the drying process, we recommend using fluffer-uppers in the dryer."

This pillow came in a really nice reusable plastic bag. I am currently using it to protect another pillow I have that I am not using. It would also be great to use when taking your pillow on vacation with you. The pillow itself is fantastic. My Husband is obsessed with feather pillows and stole this one from me after my first night of using it. I love him a lot...so I let him. Now he is feeling guilty and might buy me my own. : )
 
This pillow is really soft and comfortable. It has the perfect amount of filling in it. It is not overfilled like some pillows are. The pillow feels like it is 100% feather even though it is 95% feather and 5% down. I think the extra down gives it a little bit more fluffiness and makes the pillow perfect. The best part about this pillow is that it is double stitched! There will not be any pesky feathers poking out of this pillow.

You may be wondering why the Maggies Direct picture and website say "Social Network Shopping". Well, it is because they have an amazing awards system called 'Social Bucks".
