Just bought some new feather pillows from Debenams, unpacked them and started to plump them and noticed lots of dusty/ white powdery stuff coming from them. Is that normal? I beat them with a stick in the garden for a good few minutes but its still coming out.

Any opinions welcome. Thanks.

No, this is normal. My set of 4 duck filled pillows had stickers on them saying there will be a slight odour until they are properly airred. If they are natural duck/goose down pillows of course they will have an odour. Not sure what the dust is but it's definately not mites. Keep airing them and buffing them up, don't worry about it.

Did I get into a "flap" for no reason then? :D lol The dust is so fine its almost like a plume of smoke.

I rang up Debenhams and arranged a replacement pair, I explained to the guy the problem/ concern and he said he wasn't sure if thats normal or not, He said if the replacements are the same then it must be normal. There was a sticker on ome of the pillows saying they should be aired periodically but no mention of the odour issue. The last pair of duck feather pillows i bought didn't have any of this dust stuff.

Ah well you live and learn! thanks for putting me at ease guys! (What happened to rep, cant figure out how to add it?)

The smell is entirely normal, it will fade with a bit of airing and time.
The dust may be bits of the feathers/down, I wouldn't be worried.

for an interesting experiment weigh them before putting them to use, in a year's time weight them again and you will find they are around 5% heavier


Will do, thanks a lot for your helpful comments :)
