Pillow Ticking Down / Feather Proof
Width: 42 inches
In the days when people slept on straw ticks for mattresses, and used feather pillows, they needed a fabric that was sturdy and closely-woven enough to keep the feather shafts (or straw fragments!) from working their way out and poking the skin. Ticking fabric was the answer. It is a heavy, sturdy fabric with a close, even weave. Feathers usually have a difficult time breaching this material. Nowadays, pillow ticking fabric is used in pillows and cushions filled with down or feathers. 200 thread count. 42" wide.
