Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 19, 2009 -- With recent research suggesting that feather bedding is better for allergy sufferers, Duvet and Pillow Warehouse have bombarded their website with fantastic deals on feather pillows and duvets.
The offers come after a study by the University of Otago, Wellington found that synthetic bedding contains higher levels of fungal cell products than feather bedding, which may have a negative effect on asthmatics with respiratory problems.
With hundreds of different types of feather bedding products on offer, the team at Duvet and Pillow Warehouse want to ensure that all of their customers get a good nightâs sleep at affordable prices.
On their popular bedding website, the team have slashed prices on all of their products with up to 60 per cent reduction on feathered pillows and duvets.
The team at Duvet and Pillow Warehouse are pretty clued up on their pillows and have spent 15 years perfecting that luxury pillow for that perfect nightâs sleep.
From goose down pillows to new white goose down pillows, you can expect to save a lot of money if you buy your bedding with Duvet and Pillow Warehouse.
"There have already been a number of international studies that show synthetic bedding is associated with more asthma symptoms compared to feather bedding."
Lead investigator, Rob Siebers' research looked at 178 samples obtained from 35 floors, 35 mattresses, 35 duvets and 73 pillows. He says total beta glucan levels of synthetic pillows were two to three times higher than from feather pillows, although this just failed to reach statistical significance.
With duvets the beta glucan levels were much higher; seven to eightfold in synthetic duvets compared to feather. Allowing cats and dogs in the bedroom resulted in even higher levels in synthetic duvets. This effect was not seen in feather duvets. Similar results for synthetic duvets have been found in previous University of Otago studies for house dust mite infestation.
The researchers say these results could be of importance to asthma patients as bedding items are in close proximity to airways, but further research is needed to determine what levels of beta glucan are associated with asthma and respiratory symptoms.
