Thanks for the directions!
I've actually kind of perfected a kind of one-woman assembly-line technique with separating the pods, seeds and floss. I'll give the seeds to the Suzuki Foundation initiative, the pods go in the compost and I'm saving the floss.
However, I really need to know how much down/floss might be needed, either by weight or "packed" volume ... I could say I have enough floss for a decent pillow, but I've no idea about doing a quilt/duvet ...
And I wondered if anyone who's handled down (probably comparable in terms of fly-away-ness) might be able to offer suggestions for the actual stuffing operation, to keep the whole house from becoming infiltrated!
It's not a subject I've found resources for on the net! In fact, searching down led me to this forum!
TIA for any suggestions anyone might be able to offer!
<sigh> At least every couple of months still it crosses my mind to pick the phone up to call my mother, who passed on more than a decade ago. She was the go-to person for all manner of practical lifeskills.
<LOL> And she'd have known how many ducks or chickens or geese it'd take to make a pillow *or* a feather bed.
