Because it get put away each year, in the cupboard over the hall closet, the featherbed often gets somewhat forgotten at the beginning of wintertime. It was a birthday gift one year, and is ever so toasty warm. It forms a kind of container, with the shivery human in the middle, poufy feathers around the edge and the blanketing over the top. After only a short while, body heat warms the container and warm sleep is obtainable. The trick with it is that it needs to be puffed up anew each day, as sleeping on it flattens it out quite a bit, since it is basically a big sack full of fluffy feather/down mixture. In combination with the Hot Rice Bag, this should make a big difference.
