    Goose down price change..

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to take a second to let you know I am lowering the price on 800fill power down. I am not sure yet how long it will be at this new price. That will probably be determined by its availability. Anyway, here is the new price:

    $6.50/oz shipped CONUS. That is $1.50 less an ounce from original price. FYI. Thanks guys!

    edit: Just to clarify, this is not the same goose down that was offered in the recent group buy. This is 800 fill power gray down where the other stuff was 900 and pure white. Both good stuff but you CAN tell the difference

    Not necessarily,
    You can get 900 fill down in gray as well. Most people do not mind since it is not that noticeable when it is inside a quilt. The exception being if you are using very light colors for you quilt. Sometimes the different colors of light weight fabrics out there will show though some as well.

    The price drop is for a number of reasons.
    * I want to stay competitive.
    * I am getting a better deal on it now because I get so much of it at once.
    * I am not using it anymore for my quilts. Not because it is bad stuff by any stretch of the imagination. I personally just like the all white 900 stuff better.
    * And, I have a soft spot for the DIY folks out there.

    This is just to good of a deal to let go by.

    I guess I will have to start making a list now of what to build next.

    Booties, hood, sleeves, another quilt, vest. 10 OZs may not be enough
    Any further discount by the pound?

    So much to build and so little time before the snow melts and the hiking begins. Might have to carry over until next fall.
