Pillows with dun and feather
The pillows are filled with different amounts, blends, and grades of dun and feather. The classic 1-layer pillow (cover with stuffing) is super flexible and can be knocked flat or mossy well together to fill it. It is today supplemented by pillows with layers, or some chambers that provide different support and softness in various zones.

The classic has inspired many other manufacturers to produce so-called function pads. The relatively large quality difference from foam type to foam type.
