The Ugly Duckling

We are well aware of this story – the poor duckling that had to suffer so many wrongs to transform in the end into a beautiful, young swan. Unlike the duckling, this pillow has never been the object of ridicule, but not because it looks like a swan – just because we are fond of all of our products and because it’s filled with the finest and loveliest duck down. The Ugly Duckling pillows have a case in cotton cambric and are available as both 1-layer and 3-layer pillows.

A 1-layer pillow has only one type of fill across the whole pillow. This could be only soft down but is usually a mixture of small feathers and down that provides a bit more support than down.
A 3­-layer pillow has an inner layer of down and feathers to provide support for your head and neck and outer layers filled with down which is so fluffy and soft against the skin that it’s almost as if you are sleeping on a cloud.

Fairytale – The Ugly Duckling

A mother duck was happy with her children, even the biggest one, even though he was clumsy and of uncomely, grey-black colour. But as time went by and the ugly duckling was treated worse and worse by everyone at the manor, mother duck wanted him gone, as well. The duckling flew over the hedge and started wandering across swamps, fields and meadows, strayed into one or another farmer’s cottage, yet an odd and inexplicable urge to float on the water set him off again.

Autumn’s only joy was the sight of a flock of swans, but winter brought only sorrows. At the onset of spring, the duckling approached the swans and asked them to kill him, but as he bowed his head, he caught sight of his own image reflected in the water. And what did he see? Not an ugly duckling, quite the contrary – a most beautiful swan
