    Loft shrinking on my Burrow

    I have owned my 40* Economy Burrow for 3 yrs. In that time I have used Nikwax Down Wash three times to clean it and dry it slowly and carefully on very low heat. I have stored this TQ in the storage bag that comes with the TQ. Ive observed that the down does not loft like it was originally purchased. Each time I washed it, it seems to lose more and more loft. Is this to be expected after being used several times a month?

    It's tough to tell how often down will lose its loft, especially in a 40 degree quilt which doesn't have a ton of loft to begin with. Reach out to our email with some pictures, and we'll be happy to quote a price on adding more down to get it back up to snuff.
