It weighs 10.0 ounces!
6 ounces of that is pure down! Only 4 ounces of all else.
I made a footbox closure with snaps.
This is the first time I have ever filled a quilt by hand - NEVER AGAIN!
I was expecting the humane society to bust in claiming that I was slaughtering ducks in the house!
In the past, I've always used the vacuum cleaner tube method and I lost at the most one cluster per ounce of down. I'm going back to that method.
