Ogallala Pearl White Hypodown Pillows - A Closer Look
What is Hypodown?
The short answer is that Hypodown is an 80% / 20% mix of fine Hungarian goose down and naturally hypoallergenic Syriaca clusters. The long answer is that the makers of Hypodown search for goose down that is the fluffiest and cleanest in the world. Then, they grow their own Syriaca plants, collect the finest pods, capture large Syriaca clusters, and transfer them to their patented Hypodown blender. It uses burst of air to combine the Syriaca clusters and the goose down into a material so intimate it cannot be separated. An airy cloud-soft combination of two natural fibers to give you a tranquil, restful night's sleep.
Hypodown is hypoallergenic
Goose down can cause allergic reactions for some people. However, it is not the down itself you are allergic to, but remaining particles of dust and dirt that are inside the down. Hypodown offers the cleanest down available, tested by allergy doctors in the Unites States, Hungary, and Germany. Each test concludes that people who are allergic to down can use Hypodown with no allergic reactions. Hypodown comforters and pillows are guaranteed to be reaction free for 10 years!
Innovative and natural Syriaca clusters
Syriaca clusters are what gives Hypodown it's unique properties. The hollow fibers inside the Syriaca clusters aid in moisture transfer, wicking moisture away from your body 30% faster than just down alone. And, Syriaca clusters are durable and warm. They also help to trap and stabilize the components in down which can cause allergic reactions. Syriaca is the only natural material that suppresses down's allergic qualities while simultaneously increasing it's loft and insulation.
Syriaca clusters come from the plant commonly known as milkweed, naturally cultivated on Nebraska farms. You may have seen their fluffy, silky clusters like parachutes through the autumn sky. Light-weight, buoyant, and moisture resistant, Syriaca clusters were also used in life jackets in World War II.
How to Select A Pillow
First, choose a size. Pearl White Hypodown pillows are available in three sizes: Standard, Queen, and King.
2. Fill power
Fill power is the space that one ounce of down occupies in cubic inches. All three fill powers contain the same ratio of goose down to Syriaca cluster, 70% goose down to 30% Syriaca cluster. However, each differs in the quality of the goose down, which directly relates to how much of the down is actually cluster. Down clusters are what provide the cushion, spring, and comfort of down. The higher the amount of clusters in the down, the better quality of down it is.
Hypodown 800 is the most luxurious option, the quality you might find in a fine hotel. The 800 fill power contains the highest quality, premium goose down. The down itself is 85% large clusters, which provides unmatched loft and cushion. These are quite simply some of the highest quality pillows you will find anywhere.
Hypodown 700 is the most popular choice and above the quality found in most department stores. With 80% being large cluster premium white goose down, the 700 fill power is an excellent balance of quality and price.
Hypodown 600 is the entry level hypodown. Higher than the industry standard, this above average fill power has a goose down cluster content of 75%. These are high quality pillows.
Hypodown pillows are available in four levels of firmness: soft, medium, firm, and extra firm.
A soft pillow is recommended for you if you are petite, sleep primarily on your stomach or back, and like pillows which are conforming and moldable. A soft, plush pillow will prevent your head from being raised too high and promote circulation.
A medium pillow is recommended for you if you sleep primarily on your back or sides and like pillows which are supportive yet still pliable. A medium pillow will offer a little more support, keeping your neck inline with your spine.
A firm pillow is recommended for you if you are a taller or larger person, sleep primarily on your sides, or like pillows which retain their shape through the night. For side sleepers a firm pillow will help provide proper spine alignment.
- Pretty Good, But...
I have been an allergy sufferer for the last 3 years and have had to go through several processes of prevention. This pillow was very promising when I received it - it was fluffy and felt like a real down pillow! I enjoyed it for a few months, even though it had a slight smell from the Hypodown, which did not bother me much. The only real unfortunate thing is that after several months of use, the pillow tends to go real flat during sleep which causes me neckpain. My advice is to go with a heavier filling, even if you are a back sleeper. Otherwise, great pillow and website.
- Great Product
After years of using a feather pillow, I switched to this pillow for allergy reasons. This pillow is wonderfully soft and a perfect replacement for the pillow that I've loved for years.
- Worth Every Penny
This pillow is not cheap, but it's money well spent! The extra firm pillow works well for reading. You might want one of the others for sleeping.
- Best Down Pillow
Unfortunately, because some manufacturers write fake reviews, it's hard to know if you can trust any reviews nowadays. Well, this is a real review by an actual customer. I needed new pillows -- I like them firm. First, I bought 2 without much research from Pacific Coast. They were not what I would call firm. After some research, I realized that a truly firm down pillow would cost a significant amount. My final candidates were Cuddledown, Down and Feather, and Ogallala. The prices were comparable. However, I already have an Ogallala comforter and I kind of buy into the whole Syriaca theory. So, where to buy. Allergy Buyer's Club does not sell the extra firm pillow, plus it accepts returns. Most people would consider that a positive, but not me. I don't want a pillow that someone else returned. I wrote to Ogallala, which recommended Achoo Allergy. I placed my order, which was shipped directly from Ogallala. The pillows arrived in perfect condition, and they truly are perfect. I sleep on the firm pillow and use the extra firm for reading. PS: Before learning about Achoo Allergy, I bought pillow encasements from National Allergy, but I'm sure Achoo sells those as well.
- The Very Best
These are the very best pillows I have ever had and I have been sleeping on pillows for more than 60 years! I sleep on my stomach so I need a soft pillow. The soft pillows I've had in the past have been so soft that they were useless for anything but lying flat. I'm allergic to down but have tried it in the past after my synthetic pillows turned lumpy on me. The down pillows I tried were more comfortable but they always made me sneeze, so I'd end up putting them in the closet with all the other pillows I couldn't use. Your Hypodown pillows are wonderful! They have enough fill to support me if I want to read before I go to sleep and they don't make me sneeze. I was a bit leery of paying $130 for a pillow when I've bought other down pillows for less, but now that I've tried them I won't have anything else regardless of cost. They're tops in my book!
- down pillow
Everything but price is fantastic. 800 fill extra firm down pillow hits the mark. Firmness exceeds its billing.
- Sleeping like a baby
I have gone through many pillows in the last few years, but always wake with a stiff neck and sometimes a headache. I used a down pillow about a year ago, but it wasn't hypoallergenic, so I ended up with severe bronchitis. I'm so happy to have discovered Hypodown! I'm trying to convince my husband that he needs one, too.
- Happy Husband
I bought this pillow for my husband. He loves sleeping on a down pillow but my allergies wouldn't allow it. Wow, now we have the best of both worlds. He's very happy with his new pillow and I don't have any allergy problems. I even bought one for myself! There's nothing like sleeping on down.
- I'm in Love
This is the most comfortable pillow I have ever slept on. Just wonderful.
- Pure Heaven
This pillow is an absolute dream...nuff said!

Pearl White Hypodown Pillow
As an allergy sufferer, I have researched many manufacturers claiming to make hypoallergenic pillows. When I came across Ogallala, the makers of Hypodown Pearl White pillows, I was very skeptical about their claims of "hypoallergenic goose down". My favorite pillow to dream on, a goose down filled pillow, is also my worst nightmare. I wake up with a runny nose and watery eyes every time I sleep on one. I tried the Hypodown Pearl White pillow for three nights. Wow! I can finally have my goose down pillow back.
Now I know that Ogallala's claims are really true. Hypodown is made from the cleanest Hungarian goose down mixed with the fibers of the milk weed plant, also known as Syriaca. The combination of starting with exceptionally clean, premium goose down blended with Syriaca clusters subdues the allergenic properties of down for allergy sufferers. Ogallala is so sure of their this blend that Hypodown is guaranteed to be reaction-free for a full ten years. Unbelievable!

- The 10-year reaction-free guarantee means Ogallala stands behind their products 100%.
- You have a choice of fill power and firmness, so it's easy to customize a pillow built specifically for your sleeping needs.
- The pillow doesn't get too hot, and wicks moisture away from my face as I sleep, leaving me cool and comfortable throughout the night.
- The sateen weave pattern of the 353 TC shell displays a superior softness, in line with only the very best pillows available.
What I don't like about Pearl White Hypodown Pillow
- They need to be professionally cleaned, but this is true of most down pillows.
- As with many custom products, they cannot be returned.
