American Homeowner Magazine says: "We put over a dozen pillows through a rigorous course of testing and came up with two that we'd recommend to our readers based on quality, consistency, design, special features, and an overall snuggle factor.
"The first pillow is the Goosedown Pillow from the Tulegoose Pillow Company. This pillow is as pillows should be. It has a traditional feel that makes one want to nap or prop a couple behind the back and read in bed. However, what won us over on these pillows was what they did for us asleep, not awake.
"Tulegoose's website encourages prospective buyers to: 'Take the test, compare our pillows with the rest. Compress a pillow with your fist for five seconds. Since down won't stay compressed, the pillow should return to its original shape in 20 seconds or less.' We did, and found that while the Tulegoose Pillow passed the test with flying colors, three other so-called down pillows were put out of the running.
"By law pillow manufacturers may stuff pillows and comforters with rags and other 'fill' along with down; the Goosedown Pillow was 100% waterfowl feathers and down, and believe us that made a difference as the pillow remained smooth and lump-free through rigorous use.
"Another factor that came into play was the size of the individual down. The Tulelake Pillow Company's down, which is on average the size of a quarter, with commercially harvested down, which is sized more like a dime. The 10 pound Canadian Geese each offers approximately six ounces of feathers, 20% of which is down. It takes 40-54 geese to provide enough down for one king-size comforter, slightly less for a pillow.
"In a world where every product, from flooring to the clothes we wear, seems to be synthetic, there is a real benefit to getting back to traditional nature. We had not one editorial complaint of a bad night's sleep on the Wild Waterfowl Down Pillow. For more information call 541 891 7737 or visit www.tulegoose.com"
