- The flakes are smaller than those of goose down, so you need more to fill the blanket.
- The insulating effect of duck down is lower than that from geese, meaning more down is required, resulting in a heavier blanket.
- Duck down absorbs less moisture, making it less suitable for people who tend to sweat during their sleep.
- Down and feathers from ducks are also less flexible and durable. They don't last as long and thus provide slightly less comfort.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOOSE DOWN AND DUCK DOWN
For 35 years, we have had a down comforter from Fja-Oeyen. Last year, we had it cleaned again and took the opportunity to have it widened (which was also no problem). My children and grandchildren also know how wonderful it is to sleep under a genuine Oeyen down comforter. Good quality. Good investment.
Smooth and friendly service! Perfect!
Thank you for the smooth completion of the order I placed with you over the phone. Everything went well. I am very satisfied!
Beautiful store, excellent quality, and very good service with expert advice, everything is top-notch.
After much consideration, I finally took the plunge and participated in the promotion to try out a down comforter for a week (without any purchase obligation). After just one night, we were already convinced. It's delightful to sleep under that fluffy thing :-) Especially the lightweight feel for fluffing it up is pleasant. With this, we are very satisfied customers, also thanks to the excellent customer service! It's truly top-notch.
