Everything you need to know:
Down is the soft undercoating of Waterfowl (Geese and Ducks), consisting of clusters of light, fluffy filaments growing from a central quill point. A single down cluster is three dimensional and looks much like a dandelion pod. Down provides geese and ducks warmth and insulation, yet keeps the birds dry by allowing water and moisture to escape from the body of the bird, through the down, and into the air.
Feathers are the plumage or outer growth, forming the contour and external covering of birds.Consumers are best served when products are manufactured from smaller feathers, allowing them to trap more air and be less "crunchy."
According to Canadian Government labeling regulations, down products must contain at least 75% down content to be labelled as a "down" product. It is illegal to state that a product is "All Down," Pure Down," or anything else of the sort. Down & Feather blends will range from 95% to 5% Down. The higher the down percentage, the more expensive it usually is.
Loft is the measure of the fluffiness of Down. Loft specifically refers to the number of cubic inches that one ounce of down will fill. The test is conducted in a Plexiglas cylinder under exacting conditions of temperature and humidity. The larger, more mature the bird, the higher the loft of its down, when harvested.
Good quality products start with a loft factor of the down at about 550 cubic inches per ounce. The fluffier the down or the higher the loft, the warmer it will keep you, and the less it takes to fill a duvet or pillow. Therefore a high quality product will be lighter and still very warm and / or resilient.
Loft of down can be anywhere from about 300 to 800 cubic inches per ounce. Loft of down is probably the largest factor in determining the quality of a down product. Generally higher loft products will also last much longer as the down has grown closer to full maturity and its filaments are much stronger.
Goose down & Duck Down
Is there a meaningful difference between goose down and duck down?
Both types of down insulate equally well, and share essentially the same structure that makes down such an astonishingly good insulator.
However, there are slight differences between the two types of down, but none of that will meaningfully affect your experience.
One slight difference between the two types of down is odor. Ducks are slung lower than geese, their bellies and chests (where down comes from) tend to acquire more odor from contact with the ground. While the down cleaning and treatment process removes the vast majority of this odor, some people with a particularly acute olfactory sense may detect a difference. For most of us, however, this is a non-issue.
ST.TEIL offers a wide range of products filled with quality goose and duck down and feather that meet strict cleanliness standards. Products filled with duck down are a less expensive alternative to goose down products for the value-conscious consumer.
