What is a pillow?

result in a good night's sleep. Hypoallergenic Down and synthetic
down Primaloft pillows help relieve allergy triggers promoting a more
restful uninterrupted sleep. Down and Primaloft pillows breathe, are
light and airy, durable yet plush comforting support for the head and
neck. Primaloft pillows are hypoallergenic and have water resistant
fibers that retain their loft through repeated washings, yet dry
quickly making them easy to care for.
pillows closely imitate down pillows in that the micro fibers are
soft and silky creating that Down feeling. Down and Primaloft
clusters are blown into pillows and comforters. Primaloft is the only
patented alternative to Down. A Primaloft Pillow will not last as
long as a Down Pillow (2 to 3 years or approximately 1/3 the life of
a down pillow) but is usually priced comparatively.
Pillow comes in two firmnesses, determined by the amount of
fill. A Down Pillow's firmness is determined by the ratio of feather
type mix. Down pillows, because of the feathers ability to retain
their shape, conform to the contour of the neck yet hold shape to
fully support the head in a comfortable position. Nothing retains
maximum warmth, volume and firmness more than the perfect ratio
mixture of down and feathers.

expect the very best Finishing Touch in casing, with the key word
being touch. A quality pillow made of Primaloft or Down should be

can't wait to touch!
Have You Noticed?
Have you ever
noticed that some people will not leave home without their pillow?
They carry them on jets, in the car, to grandma's house, to the
motel, to the office, to the couch to watch television. They
literally carry them everywhere! If you're not one of those people,
wouldn't you want to know why they are so attached to their pillows?
The next time you see one of these bright eyed, bushy tailed people
with a pillow in tote, ask them what kind of pillow they have. One
can almost be assured they will call it by name, either a feather
Down or Primaloft.
