What is the thread count on Cuddledown pillows?


We use shells with three different thread counts for our pillows. The feather/down blend pillows and our 600 Fill Power European Duck Down Pillow uses a 227 thread count cotton twill shell.

The 600 Fill Power Damask Stripe Down Pillow and Synthetic Fill Damask Stripe Pillow both have a 300 thread count cotton shell. The 700 Fill Power European White Goose Down Pillow and the 800 Fill Power European White Goose Down Pillow have 450 thread count cotton sateen shells. And our Batiste 800 Fill Power European White Goose Down Pillow has a luxuriously soft cotton batiste shell. Due to the constant pressure of the head on a pillow, all Cuddledown sleep pillows are piped on all four sides, to ensure no down leakage at the seams.

Our 600 Fill Power White Goose Down Pillow and higher fill power pillows are all made from the same high quality fabrics we use for our comforters. The exception is our feather/down blend pillows. The fabrics on these pillows do not have as high a thread count as our comforters, due to feathers' natural attributes. Feathers have hollow quill shafts with stiff filaments radiating in a curved three-dimensional space. This makes feathers an excellent fill for firm support, but the quills can damage pillow tickings made from fine yarn fabrics. We, therefore, use a sturdy 227 thread count twill cover as this is the most durable shell for feather/down blends.
