    Alternative Down Source

    I was at IKEA this weekend and found a nice down pillow for $25. It was in the AS IS section of the store. The tag on it says that its 75% down and has 41oz of fill. I am not sure of the fill power but from the way the pillow feels if you want to make a cheap prototype or dont really care about the high end down this might be an alternative.

    I just came into posession of 8 sofa cushions stuffed with goose feathers/down. I'm going to start going through these and see what if any down can be salvaged from them. These were free so anything I get is a bonus. Hope to use mine for pillows to start and we'll see what the yield will be for future projects.
