There are several good threads that discuss converting sleeping bags to top quilts and under quilts and I'm considering giving it a try.
There have also been a few references to washing down and how the loft really comes back once clean. I've seen the results with one of my current down TQ/UQ sets.
My question is, when should I wash?
Would the project be more "fluff manageable" if I let all that dirt and body oil hold the fluff together while working on it and wash it after the conversion or is that just to gross and I'd be better off to wash first and find down around the house for years to come.
