Which down do I choose: Duck or Goose?

August 21, 2015

The down used in making our Pillowpacker® Pillows is among the best you can get and we are very happy to be able to offer both Brome Duck Down from the Eastern Townships of Québec and Hutterite Goose Down from the Hutterite communities in Western Canada. All our down is processed by Feather Industries, a Canadian company. Feather Industries only buys feathers and down from farmers who follow strict policies regarding the ethical treatment of animals. Its environmentally sound processing practices ensure down that exceeds all Canadian and International cleanliness standards. So while both duck and goose down offer the luxury of natural loft to our pillows, our Hutterite goose down is less abundant, comes from mature animals giving it a higher loft, and is more durable (often lasting generations). For people who want and can afford the very best, we offer the Ultimate Comfort Hutterite Goose Down Pillow. We believe it is the only inflatable goose down travel pillow on the planet.
