    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.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be, And piercèd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far, Who hast no wound or scar?
