All About Down
What is it?
Down is an incredible lightweight cluster of soft, thread-like filaments that come from the underside of ducks and geese. Its superb ability to trap warm air while allowing fresh air circulation and moisture absorption makes it an ideal choice for the ultimate year-round comfort. Down also has the ability to breath, absorb and disperse moisture. Air circulates freely around your body, maintaining your optimum body temperature, and keeping you comfortable in Summer and cozy in Winter.
Down quality depends on the size of the down cluster’s ability to expand in volume (or “loft”) to fill the available space (“fill power”). The higher the fill power, the better it will insulate.
White Goose Down
Combines the lightweight feel with natural insulating warmth and pleasant breath-ability, making duvets and pillows ideal for both summer and winter. This will dramatically change your sleeping experience. While naturally retaining your body temperature to a comfortable level, you can sleep in comfort and warmth.
White Duck Down
Retains warmth, while still remaining breathable, allowing our down products to be excellent thermal insulators. White Down has a natural ability to breathe and wick away body moisture, keeping the body dry for optimal sleep comfort all night. White Down is also very durable when cared for properly.
Our Commitment to Quality
All down is not created equal. That is why Northern Feather Canada makes it a priority to source and use only the finest quality down available. Down quality depends on the size of the down cluster’s ability to expand in volume (also called loft) to fill the available space (the fill power). The higher the fill power, the better it will insulate.

Siberian Country Down
Has the benefit of being naturally breathable, durable and resilient. Because of its resilience, you can fluff your pillow and duvet in the morning to loft back up. Siberian Country Down is renowned for its insulation properties which help regulate your body temperature, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer while still being lightweight. The down clusters offer cloud-like comfort with a touch of support.
Siberian Snow Goose Down
Sourced from geese that inhabit Siberia’s coldest regions, Siberian Snow Goose Down has more loft due to the large white clusters and is carefully selected for its warmth and supportive benefits. This allows our duvets to keep you warm all night.
Comes from ducks living wild and free in Siberia. It is processed in Germany to our exacting standards to be incorporated in our manufacturing process at our plant in Delta, BC. It is an excellent down, representing the best available in the world from birds living in an essentially free environment. With its high fill power and traits similar to eiderdown—large down clusters and no detectable scent.
One of the rarest downs in the world. A few thousand of these quilts are produced annually throughout the world, and we are a major producer of them. The prime importance of eiderdown is the ability that eider ducks have to regulate their body temperature under different climatic conditions. The female eider ducks pluck down from themselves and use it to build their nests during breeding season. When the nestlings are ready to fly and the birds leave the nest, the down can be collected by hand. Each nest usually supplies about 20 grams of down, this means that eiderdown is a very rare, raw material. A true eiderdown quilt is the best and most intelligent investment that can be made.
