Ogallala Hypodown Harvester® 600 Fill Sleeping Pillows are made by Ogallala Comfort Company – known for helping people sleep better when they use Ogallala's fine-quality, hypoallergenic down sleeping products. As Ogallala's put it, “We're more than just down…we're Hypodown®.” Ogallala's Hypodown 600 fill pillow is an ingenious blend of 70% better quality Hungarian goose down (75% down cluster ¹), and 30% Syriaca clusters.
Syriaca is a hollow, silky, floss-like fiber from the seed pods of the Milkweed plant. Grown throughout the U.S., the plant's untreated pods are harvested, cleaned and de-seeded without the use of chemicals. Syriaca is not a down filler. It helps make down more durable and breathable, and also regulates body temperature by wicking away moisture. Syriaca also traps and suppresses any allergens in the down that might otherwise cause allergic reaction. Additionally, the Harvester's down-proof, double-layer cotton shell can help to block dust mites. With proper care, ² Ogallala Hypodown® pillows should remain reaction free for years to come.
Available in Standard, Queen and King sizes in Soft, Medium or Firm.
The Harvester Hypodown® 600 Fill Sleeping pillow is covered in a 100% cambric cotton shell with built-in pillow protector (312 thread count outer fabric ‐ 260 thread count inner). The natural-color, down-proof cotton fabric is unbleached, undyed, and chemical free. The shell's double-stitched border is piped in cambric cotton. The amount of Hypodown stuffing used in each pillow (its fill weight) varies depending on the pillow's size and firmness:

|¹||In addition to down clusters, some feather pieces and fiber will also be present in this product (but no quills). This is true for all down products from any manufacturer (including for the rarest, purest downs), and occurs because the mechanical process that sorts feathers from down is incapable of completely separating the two. For this reason, it is not legal in the United States for any manufacturer to claim a product to be 100% Down, All Down, or Pure Down.|

CHOOSING A PILLOW FIRMNESS:
All Hypodown® pillows will cradle and support your head. But everyone's body is unique, and most tend to have a personal preference when it comes to the firmness of their pillow. If you're unsure what works best for you, picking the perfect firmness isn't always easy. The way you sleep, as well as your body frame and size are big factors in making a decision. Below are some general guidelines and "pillow rules of thumb" that can help you choose.
OGALLALA DOWN ‒ CLEAN, STERILE and HYPOALLERGENIC
Ogallala's down supplier uses an exclusive sterilization process, creating one of the highest-quality, natural goose down filling products today. Sterilization begins at the farm level, and next at its processing facility, where the down filling first undergoes an exclusive process to remove the fats, oils, dirt and debris naturally found in down and feathers. Final sterilization removes any residual bacteria or foreign matter. Last, down is sorted by quality into different grades, ensuring customers receive the right and best quality for their chosen bedding product. The process used to wash, sort and sanitize the down renders all of Ogallala's natural down filling material hypoallergenic under FTC standards.
Yes. Ogallala's down supplier has an on-site laboratory where dedicated technicians test all products, delivering results with accuracy and integrity. The lab performs a variety of tests to determine the quality of feather and down products, including: Content Analysis, Fill Power, Cleanliness, Average Feather Length, and Species Identification. The cleanliness tests, such as oxygen number and turbidity (how clean the down is), are performed to ensure the product is free of dust, dirt and foreign matter. Tests performed assure the down meets the hypoallergenic requirements set forth by the Federal Trade Commission.
Yes. The process used to clean and sanitize Ogallala's down produces a 100% environmentally friendly product from start to finish. All of the by-products produced in the washing and separation process are biodegradable, including all of the detergents used to wash the feathers and down. The processing facility uses fresh, recycled water for each washing process, and strives to minimize its eco-footprint by recycling water and vigilantly looking to improve energy usage.
Fill Power – What It Is and Isn't:
NOTE: Fill power and fill weight are not the same thing. Fill power and pillow firmness are also not the same. Read on for an explanation of what fill power is and how it relates (or doesn't relate) to a pillow's firmness and fill weight.
