What Can I Make With This? on 02/25/2008 22:37:50 MST Print View

I just found an old down comforter that I forgot I had. The down isn't very good quality, because there are a lot of feathers mixed in with it. However, is there anything I can do with this?

you can screen the down on 02/26/2008 10:39:57 MST Print View

You can take a large screen and filter out some of the feathers, however, the mess that it would make would be too big a hassle if you ask me.

Small down things would be best since the total weight penalty is low. I would suggest an excessively puffy down hat (like the JRB, but bigger and brighter!), some booties and mitts.

easy down toe cozies on 03/01/2008 00:42:31 MST Print View

I second what david said. Everytime I find a down jacket at the thrift store whose down seems high quality, I buy it up for small projects. I plan on making a hood and some mitts. I already make these toe cozies for cold weather camping. I posted them in a different thread awhile back. They weigh only 1.2 oz. for the pair.
