World Renowned Down
All down is not created equal. That is why Northern Feather Canada makes it a priority to source and use only the finest quality down available.
Down quality depends on the size of the down cluster’s ability to expand in volume (or “loft”) to fill the available space (“fill power”). The high the fill power, the better it will insulate.
Down is an incredible lightweight cluster of soft, thread-like filaments that come from the underside of ducks and geese. Its superb ability to trap warm air while allowing fresh air circulation and moisture absorption makes it an idea choice for ultimate year round comfort. Down also has the ability to breath, absorb and disperse moisture. Air circulates freely around you, maintaining your optimum body temperature, keeping you comfortable in summer and cozy in winter.
We have multiple different types of down from all over the globe, some of our down option include: Eiderdown, Muscovy, Siberian Snow Goose Down, European Baltic White Goose Down, Ukrainian Goose Down, Siberian Country Down, White Goose Down and White Duck Down.
Eiderdown is one of the rarest down in the world. A few thousand of these quilts are produced annually throughout the world, and most of them are made by us. The prime importance of eiderdown is the ability eider duck’s have to regulate its body temperature under different climatic conditions. The female eider ducks pluck down from themselves and use it to build their nests during breeding season. When the nestlings are ready to fly and the birds leave the nest, the down can be collected by hand. Each nest usually supplies about 20 grams of down, this means that eiderdown is a very rare, raw material. A true eiderdown quilt is the best and most intelligent investment that can be made. Our Eiderdown goes through specialized NF5 cleaning and conditioning process, making it hypoallergenic.
Our Muscovy Down comes from ducks living in the most part wild and free in Siberia. It is processed in Germany to our exacting standards to be incorporated in our manufacturing process at our plant in Delta, BC. It is an excellent down, representing the best available in the world from birds living in an essentially free environment. With its high filling power, and traits similar to eiderdown (large down clusters and no detectable scent), Muscovy Down is preferred for bedding products of discerning consumers in Moscow. Our Muscovy Down goes through specialized NF5 cleaning and conditioning process, making it hypoallergenic.
