How Fill Power Relates to Down Comforter Warmth and Pillow Firmness
Fill Power is an "industry standard" measurement used to describe the quality, and specifically the size, of the goose down clusters used to fill down bedding. A higher fill power rating indicates a larger cluster, higher quality goose down. Ounce for ounce, a higher quality goose down will provide a wider comfort range for down comforters, ie; it will help to keep you warmer when it's cold and cooler when it's warm, compared to a lower quality down. For pillows, a higher fill power rating will provide more support, resilience and durability compared to a lower fill power rating.

All Plumeria Bay® goose down goes through an extensive state-of-the-art cleaning and sanitizing process and is certified Zurguard pure. By the time this gentle cleaning process is complete, our down is considered sterilized, bacteria free and hypoallergenic with minimum standards for turbidity at 900 to 1000 mm & oxygen at 2 or less (this is very clean!). In fact, it is so clean that our down comforters and pillows are guaranteed to be hypoallergenic for 5 years.
Origins & Ethics
The origin of your goose down is important to know. As a member of the Down Association of Canada, all of our goose down is certified to be ethically harvested, as a by product of the geese being processed for food.
Our goose down is never "live harvested" or "hand plucked". The practice of plucking down from living geese is cruel, not to mention illegal in most parts of the world.
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.
