Great job, Gunn! What don't you like about the down/feather mix? I was contemplating salvaging the same from an old comforter.
There is nothing really wrong with this type of fill I think, I have another two old doonas I will salvage more feather from.
It is easy to salvage, but don't do as I did and open up the whole doona and spill it into the bath and then pick it up again and put into plastic bags. Next time I will leave it in the doona until I need it The feather is heavier and does not compress as well as down.
So you your not worried about the extra weight and you have a larger pack or you are car camping then go for it.
close up of the snaps and draw cord.
Very nice Gunn! You and your assistant did a wonderful job!
Let us know how it works out for you.
