I have been temped to try to make a DIY Under-quilt but have some questions concerning down.....
1) I would like to take the UQ into the high 20's low 30's.....how much down am I looking at? I was thinking of making a 3/4 length.
2) where can I purchase down?
3) Can I just use down from two full size blankets that I have around my place?
4) Finally, the reason why I chose down is because it seems that it would be more compressible then synthetics and I am concerned about pack space. Does this make sense? what other pros and cons are there to the Synthetic vs Down debate?
