    Hi guys n gals. What's the best source for a small quantity of down eg 1 or 2 oz ? I want to make a small down pillow ala goosefeetgear.

    It would be cheaper to buy one from Goosefeet Gear. If I was going to make one I'd probably salvage the down from an old down clothing item that has got just too snagged or stained to be wearable.

    Or check out charity shops.

    That would be gravity, right? :pompus:

    Bear in mind that if you want any support from the pillow, higher amounts of feather provide more support for the same weight. Cheaper fills generally have more feather.

    I think it used to be, but the news has taken over now. :biggrin:
