fill for home quilt/comforter on 10/23/2009 09:48:11 MDT Print View

I am looking to add down or feathers to a comforter I have at home to make it warmer--for my bed. Can anyone offer some advice on a) what to use AND b) where to source the feathers or down online?? Any help appreciated. Mike

I've been looking for a supplier as well... hoping to hear back on another thread!

This is the only supplier I've located so far:

All the way at the bottom... 900-fill down.

Thanks, Joe!

If its going to be for home use why not get the 750 fill from Bender?
