The origin of your goose down can be useful to know. As noted above, we use very special goose down that comes from from Canada and Germany. Most of the worlds goose down comes from China, and then Europe (particularly Poland and Hungary). Goose down from China can be inconsistent in quality (when processed in China). Hungarian and Polish goose down can be of very good quality and is widely available. If you see a product advertised as Siberian Goose Down, you should be aware that this is basically sales hype. We do not know of any goose down that actually comes from Siberia.

Is that a spot of gray that I see?! Sometimes, you may notice dark spots through the fabric on your comforter or pillow. These are dark (gray) clusters of down and are present, to some degree, in even the highest quality (unbleached) hand selected white goose down. Goose down turns gray as the goose gets older (just like our hair). This is natural, and the fill is not inferior in any way. When present, these random dark clusters are usually only visible when compressed under the fine white fabric. If you were to open the pillow or comforter and allow the down to expand it would be very difficult to see any dark clusters.

Our experience has shown that many people are truly surprised by the warmth of our down comforters. If you are unsure about which warmth level to select (Light, Winter, etc.) consider selecting a comforter that is one step lighter than you think you might need. We can always add more down to your comforter, anytime within 1 year of your purchase, charging only for additional down added and return shipping. But we cannot remove it.
