Down is a natural choice in more ways than one.
is nature’s premiere fill and insulator; Down clusters look like little cotton balls with a round center called a plumule. Each plumule has thousands of tiny fibers emanating from its core. As these fibers link to others, they create air pockets, which keep you insulated by trapping the heat. The air within the pockets warms you naturally, using minimal weight.
Down also has the amazing ability to breathe, lifting moisture away from the sleeper.
Far less down is needed in weight than other fillings, which means a much lighter, but warmer product.
All down is not the same. Down from larger, mature birds offer more insulating power and a better ability to loft. This means they will have a higher fill power. Fill power is measured by the amount of cubic inches that one ounce of down will fill once it expands. The higher the fill power, the better the quality and warmth. This means that a higher quality comforter will weigh less than a heavier, lower quality one; yet still provide more warmth, fluffiness, and lightweight comfort.
