I think this dude combines the best of both worlds, coon down UQ and kilt hiking.
I hear you have to have a special kind of scissors to sneak up on them and harvest the required fiber amounts.
Take it easy,
The logistics of coon down harvesting is one that remains unseen. But...
The logistics of harvesting and transporting the massive amounts of Coon Down to create such quilts have reared their ugly heads. And with only 25% of the expected 800 to 900fp of harvested CD, it's still very early in the season.
CD ( aka Coon Down )harvest season has a long window due to the wide-ranging area of habitants thru out various parts of the country. However, harvest delays this year in the rain-soaked west-central states and drought-stricken southern states, mixed with a faster-pace harvest for the number one CD-producing area of Fairfield SP dumpsters have meant that a lot of the country's farmers are harvesting at the same time. This magnifies the weaknesses of the CD issues...
Thank you CookieCoon
That certainly explains the CD shortages this year...
I may have to wait 5 years till I can afford one
I go to coondownbythequarterpound.com. They only have the site up every once and a while. It is a co-op.
