    bulk goose down

    so i got a new down comforter for x mas. and now i have twoo i chopped up the old one made an UQ and have about 80% or so of the old quilt. its only a few years old and im not sure what the fill number is but my guess would be 700ish aas there is not really any feathers that i can see. and its really really really warm even in the worst of winter. not sure what to ask for it but i used about 20 oz. in my quilt and theres most of the it left so ill start it at 70 bucks plus shipping... oh yes its a king size minus about 20% at most

    If it's new, then the tags should tell you something about the mix of down. I don't think home bedding has much more than ~400-500 fill power.

    No I'm selling the old comforter that's why I don't know. I did a google search the highest fill power I could find was 700. But most were around 500 to 600 ill ask my GF in the morning when she's awake maybe she remebers. Its a lot of down though I bet it would fill a large trash bag
