Duck down provides excellent insulation and super soft comfort, making it a fantastic product for superior sleep comfort. Moreover, it's cheaper, primarily because goose down is scarcer. However, the quality is slightly inferior.

  • 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.
Duck down is ideal for your wallet. But those who truely want the most quality sleep choose a down comforter with real goose down.
