They grow a thick layer of down, a natural fluffy layer, beneath their feathers . Geese are larger than ducks and usually originate from colder climates. Duck down is much cheaper than goose down because it is more readily-available, especially in the United States.Fill PowerFill power is the phrase that describes how much cubic area, in inches, can be filled by one ounce of different varieties of down. The higher the fill power of a down, the higher the quality of the down is. Fill power is what makes one down pillow fluffier than another. Downs with higher fill power will hold their volume and shape more reliably and for a longer period of time.Number of FeathersFeathers are not desirable in a down pillow. Companies who care about producing a high-quality pillow will more carefully sort the down to remove feathers. Feathers are heavy and add unnecessary weight, which can cause a down pillow to go flat. In addition, the pins of feathers may poke through the surface fabric of your pillow and scratch you.LoftLoft describes the fullness of the down, which dictates how full your pillow will be. Good-quality down has more loft, and less is needed to create a full, supportive pillow than is needed when a poor-quality down is used. Loft is inhibited when there are too many feathers in the mix.Down Cluster SizeGenerally speaking, the larger the cluster of down, the better.
