What are the key factors affecting the quality of down?


The quality of down is closely related to the place of origin, species, breeding conditions, and processing techniques.

place of origin

The climate of the place where the down is produced determines the quality of the goose's own down. Generally, the higher the latitude and the colder the place, the warmer the down will be. The following types belong to the relatively high-quality down in the world——

Icelandic goose and duck down: Geese and ducks live in the extremely cold natural environment of the Icelandic coastline. In order to preserve body temperature, the feathers are extremely elastic, the barbs are curved, and there are small barbs at the end. The fine air layer has unparalleled thermal insulation performance, known as“king of fleece”.

Geese and ducks are rare species, with only a limited output of 2,000 kilograms in the world, and the price is close to that of gold.

Siberian snow goose down: It grows in 63 degrees north latitude, which is one of the coldest regions in the world. It spends half a year in the cold. The extremely cold climate (-40℃~-60℃) makes the goose grow fuller feathers to adapt to the environment. off the beaten track“peaceful place”The ecology is highly clean, which provides excellent natural conditions for the purity of snow goose down flowers, making it have the excellent characteristics of low oil, white color, natural and odorless, and the bulkiness can reach 1000+.

Canadian white goose down: Canada has a high latitude and a cold climate; the goose breeding bases are concentrated in the hinterland of Canada, with open terrain and elegant environment. Thousands of acres of grassland are especially suitable for free-range breeding, and farmers generally use pure natural wheat and barley to feed them. Well-known top goose down origin. The Canadian white goose is a pure breed, with a large body size, even twice that of other origins, and a large amount of down; Canadian geese generally collect goose down in 21-24 weeks, and the fluffy degree is as high as 800+;

Hungary, Poland, and white goose down: they are located in the world-renowned high-quality goose down producing areas——The world's golden down belt at 45 degrees north latitude, the Danube River Basin has a pure environment, a long history, good quality and long-lasting goose down; it is generally used in free-range farms to let it forage naturally. 700+.

goose species

The geese in Poland, Hungary, Canada and other places belong to the gray goose species, which are larger than the geese in Asia (the swan goose species), and their goose down is relatively larger.

Feeding conditions

The geese raised in high-latitude regions, especially in the cold regions of the Arctic Circle, have superior quality of goose down and high down production rate.

The natural free-range farming method, compared with the general greenhouse dry farming, has higher indicators of size, color, smell, cleanliness, and fluffiness of goose down.

In terms of the feeding cycle, the feeding cycle of high-quality goose down is more than 9 months, and it can be ready for slaughter in 4 months.
