So, I'm getting ready to jump into my first quilt project, and while I'd love to be able to just purchase a pound of 900 fill power down, it's not in the budget.
However, I'm thinking of using an alternative source...Amazon.
750 Fill Power Comforter
750 Fill Power Pillow
Now, granted, it's "only" 750 Fill Power, but I was looking through the reviews for people reporting feathers poking through, "crunching" sounds, etc. It looks like these use pretty high quality down. I'll only need about 16oz for my planned quilt at 750FP, so I'm looking at getting just the pillow for now.
I need 10,600 ci. of down, no matter the FP. I'm making a winter, full length UQ.
28oz. of 750FP down for $65. That's $2.30/oz, or, in terms of volume, $0.31 per 100ci. What is everyone's thought? Can I find it cheaper elsewhere?
