Choosing the perfect pillow for you

Choosing the right pillow can sometimes be a challenge. There are specially designed pillows in the market for people lying on the side, on the stomach or on the back.

At Norvegr, we have found the solution to be a bit simpler. If you do not have any special preferences, we would recommend a somewhat firm larger pillow in the bottom, and then a softer top pillow, smaller or the same size as the bottom pillow.

This way you can vary the support for your head the way you like, by using both, or using only one of the two. Offering two pillows like these, we cater to all kinds of people, necks and body shapes, and have happy customers.

Should you be interested in a custom made pillow, please call or email us to explore this option. We can adapt the filling to any request.

About our down pillows

Traditionally, it is believed that one should use a mix of down and feathers in pillows, because using only down will make them collapse when you put your head down. The amount of feathers in traditional pillows can therefore sometimes be quite high. In addition, a high feather content makes for a cheaper pillow, since feathers are much less expensive than down.

At Norvegr, we fill our pillows with either pure down fillings, or fillings where the down portion vs feathers is quite high. The results are remarkable.


Our Standard and Classic pillow collections are filled with a fifty-fifty mix between Arctic white duck down and Arctic white goose down. In the Standard Collection, the down/feather ratio is 70 % down and 30 % small and soft feathers, while for the Classic Collection the down purity is 100 %, with no feathers.

For our Premium Collection, we use pure goose down from the Siberian white snowgoose, 100 % down and no feathers.

The benefits of high down content pillows

The advantage of using such high contents of down in our pillow comes from the unique qualities of the down pearls themselves. While a feather is two dimensional, a down pearl is three-dimensional. 

When using the right type of down, one gets a pillow that retains the same volume with a much lower weight. This means that a high down content pillow contains a lot more air than one filled with a high content of feathers.

Subsequently, this means that it will breathe much better, and release moisture very well during the night. Down pearls are also much more resilient than feathers, and you will therefore have a pillow with outstanding longevity.
