False myths about down pillows
We know that “fake news” is the order of the day and that contradictory information constantly reaches our ears. In this way, it is easy for a feeling of uncertainty to be generated and we do not know what we should believe and what not. Next we are going to disprove some myths that have been dragging for a long time regarding down pillows
A feather pillow is very hot
Let's clear up this false myth: it is true that down and feathers have a high insulating capacity against the cold. For this reason, many outerwear incorporate this material in its padding.
But the fact that a rest product transmits more or less heat is directly linked to its breathability. In this case, we will find few materials more breathable than down. So these types of pillows are totally timeless and you can use them both in winter and in summer.
Feathers increase the risk of asthma
Traditionally, people with asthma have been advised to avoid down-filled duvets and pillows in favor of synthetic fill. However, in 1998 Løvik, the journal of the Norwegian Order of Physicians, highlighted that this general recommendation is simply a product of traditional popular perception, and there are no experiences and empirical analyzes that can prove it. In addition, recent medical studies show that synthetic pillows contain up to eight times more allergens (mites) than pillows filled with feathers and down.
