    I found an old mattress pad under my bed Theres got to be something I can do with it.

    The tag reads "Fill material, goose feathers, 9.9 lbs." It feels every bit of it too. Is there something I can make with this, ie ripping out the feathers and dewing them into an UQ?

    Problem with feathers is they have stiff spines that poke right through your typical UQ material. That and feathers are comparatively very heavy and offer a lot less insulation than down. Honestly, I'd leave it alone.
