I was attracted to the pattern of this pillow when I first laid eyes on it – anything to do with Owls is a must for me!
The print is so cute with no flaws and matches with any décor considering the neutral colours. The back side is just a plain linen (beige) colour.
The material is linen (cotton) – and the squares are medium sized with a tight weave. I find the pillow not too harsh to touch or lay my head upon while watching tv, but it’s definitely not as soft as a normal cotton pillow cover.
It does not come with an insert, and I was happy to have new covers for some old pillows whose pattern I no longer enjoyed. The pillow forms I used are about 16” squared, so although it is a bit loose around the edges, inserting the pillow form into the case was simple and quick.
The zipper is sewn in quite well – with straight lines (again, from China, so this can be a concern with respect to edging), and there are no loose ends. It is similar to a zipper you would have on a skirt or dress – so not heavy duty. For now it works perfectly fine.
The material also collects dog hair quite easily, so they are kept in our bedroom vs the couch, to ensure we do not have to clean them constantly. I am able to remove hair with a lint brush though, so this makes keeping them hair free between cleanings simple.
For cleaning, I just wash by hand with gentle liquid clothes cleaner and hang up to dry.
Overall I am quite pleased with the quality, size, and design of this pillow form, and will definitely be adding to my pillow collection from this store!
