At BPL I asked a question if there was any way of improving the quality (fp) of your down, even if you lose some quantity in the process. (I bought a 550fp down comforter on ebay that has 95% down/5% feather ratio and it has 54 OUNCES of fill) I don't care how time consuming or crazy it is, and I'd be ok with losing up to 10 ounces if it meant the quality was better.
I was told there was no practical way of doing this, since fill power is based on volume (550fp takes up 550 cubic inches per ounce whereas 900fp takes up, you guessed it, 900in^3)
And I was told that this had to do with the mixture of feathers to down, which is where I got lost.... even most 900fp garments/ quilts whatever that are industry made are 95/5, down/feather ratio. So how could this have anything to do with with fill power, when my 550fp comforter is also 95/5?
Not saying this guy is wrong, I just need some clarification, and to my original question, is there anything I can do to get a better fp on my down?
