RANDOM TIDBITS

Down is the layer of soft feathers closest to a bird's skin, primarily on the breast. These feathers keep ducks and geese warm during chilly flights.

***

Ancient down-filled quilts have been discovered through archeological digs in Norway, leading scientists to attribute the first use of goose down to the Vikings.

***

Because its properties enable people to regulate their natural body temperature and maintain warmth, lightweight goose down is used to fill comforters, pillows, and outerwear such as vests and coats.

***

The down in these items takes the form of clusters, similar to snowflakes. The clusters have fine filaments radiating out in every direction; these filaments expand and form air pockets that trap body heat, a process called "lofting."

***

The more down an item contains, the warmer (and more expensive) the product will be. The insulation down provides is rated by "fill power," which reflects the size of down clusters and their related loft.

***

Fill power is measured as the number of cubic inches one ounce of down occupies. A good down comforter will have a fill power of at least 575; more warmth is provided by comforters with fill powers up to 800.
