    down, where to buy in canada

    ok all I have my top quilt's shell ready to fill, now I need to get some down, but where can I get it in canada
    I would like some 800 or 900 fill
    I know I can get it through some suppliers on the forum, just don't want to pay for duty
    if I cant find a canadian supplier I'll gladly buy from one of you guys

    Bah, for the life of me I can't find the place I ordered from.

    Hit Google, I stumbled into a place and I bought some 800FP down. But I think I bought out the last few lbs they had.

    Note, typically, you need to buy several *pounds* of down...they won't sell 12oz for example.

    I had one place tell me they would only sell me down by the "bin"...which turned out to be a 4' X 4' X 8' pallet of down!

    Hit google and start calling around! It took a while, but it worked for me.

    From Canada geese, of course.

    ok, so I've found a supplier freatherind.com
    minimum order is 2 pounds, 700fp - 800fp ranges between 65 and 74 $ per pound, anyone interested in a group buy? comes down to 4.65 roughly per oz.

    I *think* that might be who I used for one of my down orders. Did you call to make sure they actually have 800FP in stock?
