    My feeble memory is beginning to work......

    As I now recall, one of the things that made European white goose down so desireable was that the European market preferrs larger (hence, older) geese. Apparently as the goose matures the down clusters continue to grow, with the qualities we cherish improving as well.

    Younger geese and ducks simply do not have time to grow the best down.

    Looked at the feedback for the guy selling the down. He has sold everything from paperback novels to lap tops, to PDA stylus. This down is something he has stumbled across would be my guess. His selling history is all positive which is good.

    He probably doesn't know what he has. He doesn't claim to know how to measure the loft of the down. His description is a guess by his own admission.

    Theoretically, it shouldn't take more than one or two bags to do an underquilt. I may pick up a bag or two just to try it out.
