Our feather cleaning process

Our Feather Cleaning Process

  • When the bales of pre-washed feathers arrive at our factory they must be professionally washed and processed for use in our bedding products.
  • This process comprises of a further two pre-washes, two full washes with with specially formulated detergents, and several rinses.
  • This is followed by drying and sterilising with high pressure steam at 130°C.
  • The next step is the de-dusting process which ensures the products are non-allergenic.
  • Every batch is then tested to determine that the Oxygen rating (organic cleanliness) conforms to international standards.
  • The feathers are then sorted in our huge sorting machine into various grades of fillings.
