This is the rarest down available anywhere in the world, even rarer than Eiderdown. It is hand collected from wild geese in the Canadian north by the Cree First Nations under special license from the Canadian government. We are proud to support their traditional practices through the purchase of this down. The huge down clusters actually cling together like Eiderdown and must be hand sorted. This soft cashmere coloured down is uniquely Canadian, and its amazing clinging ability creates a soft cushiony pillow you will sink into. This pillow comes with a cotton jacquard zippered protector. The pillow cover is our 300TC SoLoft™ German 100% cotton twill, made specifically for down. It is dust mite proof, down proof and is the key component in allowing this pillow to be fully machine washed and dried.
