    Bulk goose down..

    Hello all! New hear and hoping to pick your brains a bit about goose down. I've recently acquired a bunch of goose down and I'm curious as how to properly go about selling it.

    I've read some on the different ratings goose down can have and I'm wondering if anyone here knows where I can send a sample to get tested? Also, is there a company that buys bulk down? I have A LOT!

    Thanks

    Hey guys, the OP asked for info about testing and a possible bulk buyer...not about selling to individuals. It is down of as yet unknown source and quality. Also, this isn't the For Sale forum, and this is the OP's very first post on the forum....

    Lets stick to info about testing the down itself and let the OP get to know the forum a little better before anyone states interest to buy.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    You could always test it yourself. Does it have any feather quills. The higher quality down won't have any feathers.
