HOW TO JUDGE NATUAL DOWN AND FAKE DOWN?
WHAT IS NATURAL DOWN?
The natural down comes from waterfowls. All down jackets and down bedding must use the waterfowl down as the filling material. Down is the plumage forming the undercoating of waterfowl, consisting of tufts of light fluffy filaments (e.g. barbs) growing out of the cluster core without any quill shaft. Waterfowl down contains down cluster, nestling down, plumule down and damaged down. Waterfowls need down and feathers to keep their body temperature.
