Feather pillow help

lbbray | Posted in General Discussion on

I have no idea where else to turn, so, here goes.  I bought two rather expensive feather pillows because I always loved them when we would visit people who had them.  They were great for a while.  Now, less than four months later, it is like sleeping with a porcipine.  Feathers are working their way out all over the place.  At this rate, my pillows are going to be featherless pillows.  I am guessing I am going to have to make covers for them.   Granted, the feathers will still be coming out of the pillows, but hopefully won’t be poking me any more.  My question is, what in the world do I use for the material for a cover that would be better than what the pillow makers use? Or, is this just the thing about feather pillows and they are un-usable after just a few months?

    Ticking of high quality should feel almost satin-like because of the fineness of the threads and tightness of the weave.

    Zippered pillow covers are available commercially that keep those feathers in. I may have bought ours at Target. They weren't all that expensive either.
